New 7D - Thank you
After months of research and deliberation, I decided to upgrade my 20D, and rec'd my 7D last night. I know I have a lot to learn, and will enjoy doing so. This camera is a machine! First impressions are off the charts. The metering and AF ... well, cannot draw a fair comparison to the 20D (since I would expect dramatic improvement).
Needless to say, I am one happy camper, and I have all of you to thank.
To those on the anti-7D committee, feel free to hold your comments, as I have read plenty already.
Thanks again, DPR forum patrons!
Congrats and the best of luck with it. May it meet or exceed ALL your expectations for a long time to come.
I have had mine since they were first release and still haven't found anything that compares, at least not for my interests.
As for the nay sayers, I read the many complaints but never experienced the same problems which were so vehemently voiced. You quickly learn which posters have an ax to grind and which provide a fair presentations of the situation when you read enough of them. Terms like fanboy and th name calling has gotten out of hand but it also shows a some to be what they really are - biased.
So happy you are pleased with your decision, now the key to REALLY enjoying it is learning what it is truly capable of.
I started in the 50's - my first picture was taken with a Leica and hooked me for life. I no longer use my Leicas, but I am still taking pictures. Some things never change.
