There's A LOT of new cameras coming out promising way better video than the current DSLRs. Canon has been holding off on video improvements for over 3 years now, and if it weren't for the competition they'd milk it for as long as they could, but now they might feel forced to step up pretty soon.

The thing is they should be charging ahead. Now instead of having the market cornered they will just be barely hanging on or following. They are way too conservative, slow, internal segment and milking oriented though.

I have the 7D and I have used and currently own EF-s lenses. One of my favorites that I will never get rid of is my 60mm EF-s macro. Note, I also own the 100mm EF macro and if I had to choose one I would keep the 60 over the 100. It is light, easy to use and extremely sharp. I love using it for macro work as the DOF is greater than the 100mm and 180mm, something i find very useful in 1:1 macro photography.

I second this emotion for the EF-S 60mm. While great for basic macro, it's got a look no other lens has. This image was made holding a T2i in one hand and a flashlight in the other. (F/8.0 at 1/180)
