Questions and comments, please
Aug 14, 2011

I have pretty much decided against a Nikon D7000 (it has too many faults and QC issues, regardless of what some people here say), and have redirected my thoughts to the EOS 7D.

It seems to be under represented here - is that because it's a little expensive, or it has very few faults?

I'm toying with the idea of:

7d + EF 28-300 L IS USM (3.5-5.6) and maybe a sigma 150-500 DG OS HSM (what is the OS? optical stabilise?)

OR

tD + 3 good lenses to range from 18 - 400 inc the 100-400 L IS USM.

I don't like prime lenses very much, their use is very singular (wide aperture is all they offer to me), but i might do a 135 macro.

so:

Any comments on 7D reliability? back focus problems? Oil spotting? Over exposure? (all noted D7000 faults)

Any comments on these lenses (main use = 75% landscapes, macro, some portraits)

Does anyone know of any near future new Canon releases? It might be prudent to wait and see what's coming before pulling the trigger on a 3000 pound purchase..

Thanks!
