Has my 1D2 become a 7D-lite? :)
Sep 4, 2009

Aside from a negligible extra 0.5 fps, 5 shots more RAW buffer, some extra AF points, a bit larger sensor and an SD card slot, I can't find any more performance/features point where my reliable old brick can beat the coming 7D. In everything else, the 7D makes my 1D2 look its age. I'm amazed at the feature set we can get now for less than 40% of the original price of the 1D2.

7D vs 1D2 side-by-side:

Of course, the AF performance of the 7D still needs to be validated (I'll be able to try that with a pre-prod copy next week ).
