Thanks for the reply Paul,

I am looking for two things really, mainly better noise performance for low light work and also faster AF as I am getting in to shooting motorbike racing.

I think both the 60D and 7D are better than my E3 and will do what I want. I am slightly swayed towards the 7D for the focusing control it appears to have.

I realise both are rumoured to be replaced later this year, but as with everything you have to buy at some point, should I wait or not....either way the Canons will be better than what I have!

What are you missing with the E-3?

It's best to look at what you do and see if these cameras have features that your current system doesn't have, but you need.

the Canon 60D has...

  • better noise performance for low light work

  • higher MP sensor for more detail and cropping ability

  • more lenses to chose from

  • faster AF system

the 7D has all these advantages and more, with a better AF system, better build quality, and high FPS. I think it's a bit dated though, and would worry a newer version will be coming out shortly. Sadly the same goes for the 60D, it may be updated sometime this year.

If your a hobbyist, the micro 4/3 system might be just fine. There's some good glass out there and they get the job done, just in a smaller package. If you're starting to become a more serious photographer, a DSLR will offer a more robust build and more lenses/accessories that you can almost always keep and use when you upgrade your camera body.
