AFAIK, the 600D and 7D sensors are exactly the same. The 600D just doesn't have the problem of having dual data paths that the dual-DIGIC architecture in the 7D introduces (apparently visible at times).wickidwombat said:I can get my hands on a 600D to compare but not a 7D
i'll try borrow the 600D and the 18-55 EF-S kit lens on the weekend to compare sensors and kits lenses too
That would be a really cool comparison.
wickidwombat said:It might be worth waiting to see if a firmware update comes out cleaning up some of the issues and also if a price drop makes it more appealing as it stands the eos-m kit plus 22mm, 18-55, EF adapter and ex90 flash is not too far off the cost of a 5Dmk2 body brand new.
I see the dual lens kit with the Speedlite goes for around $1011 (incl GST) - RRP is $1149. The EF to EFM adaptor goes for around $131 (RRP $149). That's a total of about $1142 (incl GST). Where are you getting your 5DIIs from? ;-)

That is what I am thinking - that is how you would mainly use it with the 22mm lens, which would probably be the most used lens.
One other thought: with the EX90 Speedlite, have you thought of the idea of using a short TTL cable and holding the flash in one hand and the camera in the other to achieve bounce flash? (Of course you couldn't use touch to shoot then, unless you were a three-armed mutant!)
