Read this for CF performance

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-10294


The 7D is a fast entry level sports camera - hurrah for more, free performance.

Brian, those results do seem to suggest that it is 99.99% CF card performance and precious little to do with the internal memory buffer

It was not me that was talking about internal memory buffer

I was saying that the max burst size depended on how quick it was writing from the buffer in relation to how quick it was filling it.

There it is again, someone calling the 7D 'entry level'. Like it was a 300D.

Well, does Canon make a lesser camera that can be considered as a 'sports camera'?
There's the 1D4 and 1DX above it, even the 5D3 may not be aimed at sports but it can certainly be used for it.
You can use lesser cameras like the 60D and 600D for sports, but they're not 'sports cameras'.
Ergo, the 7D is canon's "entry-level sports-camera".
Too much gear, too little space.

If you're specifically talking of sports, I guess you're correct because the 60d's servo af and af point spread isn't made for action at all. Luckily for me, there are other kinds of sports like chess :-)

I think people must have either, not read the cpn technical article on the 7D or forgot about it, it states

Quote
Memory card choices
The Dual “DIGIC 4” processors ensure a level of future proofing for the camera by allowing the use of Mode 6 UDMA Compact Flash cards. Although Mode 6 UDMA cards are not available, it is expected that they will appear later in 2009. When this happens, it is possible the maximum burst capability of the camera will improve.

I am using the 600x speed cards and have a burst rate in normal use of about 24 images and I am sure Canon are aware of this speed increase. I would have thought the press release relates to the slower cards and would then mean with UDMA 6 cards there would be a further improvement in burst rate.

That's one is great, immediately added it to my all-time favorites archive :-) And it is an excellent reminder that all Canon gear around here being talked about being only good as a paper weight is actually pretty good to begin with.

It's just about the right tool for the job - which might be the paper camera too if you expect it not to make it back in one piece, you can get 85 of these for the price of one 7d.

That's a nice one - it would be interesting how many lenses overlap, so what's really the cost of having all possible L glass for every situation - and what it's physical weight would be.

that' s an easy one! A Canon Mega-L lineup really only  takes 9 L lenses.

* Fish 8-15 -> 540g, € 1300
* EF 16-35/2.8 -> 635g, € 1300
* TS/E 24/3.5 II -> 780g, € 2000
* 24-70/2.8 II -> 805g, € 2300
* 70-200/2.8 IS II-> 1490g, € 2200
* 180/3.5 Macro -> 1090g, € 1400
* 200-400/4 w/1.4x -> 3000g (?), € 11000 (?)
* 600/4 II -> 3920g, € 12000
* 800/5.6 -> 4500g, €13000
* TK 1.4x III  (no need for 2x, because new Canon bodies cannot AF at f/8 anyway) ... 225g, € 470


Total weight: 16,35 kg ... take a gura gear Kiboko 30L, a large Thinktank roller or a large Lowepro ... it may even pass as carry-on. ;-)

Total street price: € 46,970  = USD  >:(   ... before Canon cash-backs and major volume discount ;-)

that's it. :-)

Why the slow 200-400? Might as well add the 70-300L. And the slow 2.8's as well? yuk

I love my 135f/2 and 200 f/2 and wouldn't do without them. On ff they are the dogs donuts.

AS far as I am concernde: no need for fixed focals,as long as good zooms are available. And anything faster than f/2.8 has too thin DOF on FF anyway. :-)
