... like the 7D ?

There's a trend to spend more effort in the improvement of video in the class of the P&S cameras than in the improvement of the image quality of still photos. That's possibly OK and may meet the requirements of the mass market. And entry level DSLRs possibly also can be considered as P&S cameras with exchangeable lenses.

But do we need video in a camera like the 7D ? Do we want, that the developers spend their efforts in future in the improvement of the video capabilties of semi-professional DSLRs ? Do we want to pay for it ?

May answers are three times NO. When I want video will buy an additional video camera (it costs and weights less, than a good lens).

And I never used video in the last two years with my Nikon D90 and I also will not use it with my EOS 7D. But without any doubt I've payed for it.

What's your opinion ?
