should I upgrade from 30D to 7D, or wait for future technology features?
Mar 27, 2010

Hi All,

I see a lot of posts from people very excited about the 7D, and the 5D as well. The reviews of both cameras look great. Auto-sensor cleaning, low light, live-view, and video are all signifiant features that are would be very nice to have.

But I'm wondering whether my images are really going to improve noticably by upgrading my 30D to a 7D, or whether I should hold out for more improvements in technology. The technology is improving at a dramatic pace and there's no telling what features will come along with the next iteration.

I've got a couple months vacation coming up shortly and am planning to travel through national parks and China. I plan to take a lot of pictures. I recently bought the EF-S 15-85 lens for this trip based on recommendations from everyone in this forum.

It's always fun getting a new camera with the latest and greatest technology, but they're not free!

Any advice whether to wait or take the plunge now?

Thanks much!
