Jumping ON the ship - questions
Mar 3, 2007


Already owning a 5D and waiting endlessly for Sony to produce a 7D successor, upon having to send my 5D overseas for repairs I've decided I've had enough. So I considered jumping ship to an D80 or a used 20D or even a used D200.

So I decided to buy a used 7D instead

I wanted to ask you guys a few questions:

1) Would a 7D be a bad idea, as a much updated Sony will come sometime this year (though probably for more than double the price of a used 7D)?
2) What are the 7D's frequent faults that I should check for in a used model?

3) The used model I checked out still has a couple of months in its warranty and reportedly did not need service yet - anything that should be done immediately in a service center as a "just in case" precaution?

4) When I checked it out, the viewfinder was very good, but a bit yellowish, is that normal?
