I started this topic over a year ago. I am a happy owner of a 7D and a bunch of other gear. I'm glad I spent the money way back. Now I just have a serious case of L-fever.
Having gone from 0 to 250k views on flickr in a year has been amazing. I've learnt so much from everyone here and by looking at other shots trying to figure out how they were done. Thank you all!
Pros for the 7D:
Ergonomics, it just fits my paws so well and I can easily access any of the settings
Speed, for high-speed shooting, this thing rocks! (haven't tried the 1D-X or 5dmkIII) But 8fps is good enough)
Versatility - Outdoor, Indoor, remote controlled flash guns (built-in master) there's very little this thing can't do.
Cons (there has to be some):
Noise - Well documented, high-ISO 1600 and over produces quite a bit of noise. Noise Ninja is NICE!
UI - 50/50 on this. The user interface is ok, but could be 'nicer'. There are some things I think could be improved, but I won't go in to details now.
But that's it. I love it, and even if I was to get a 5D MK 3 through some crazy stroke of luck (i.e lottery winning) I would still hang on to the 7D, I like it that much.
Again, thank you all and I look forward to reading much more cool info from all of you in the future!
