Re: Go look at the dial

I haven't spent as much time on these forums or been around as long as many others but I have still seen my share of (sorry but there is no other word for it) somewhat lame questions like this.  You'd think that after three years of the camera being on the market and countless previous posts covering the exact same topic (can a 7D shoot people too, not just birds) that there would be an end to it.  I'm sorry OP, but I just don't understand why you would think the camera is incapable of shooting portraits simply because it excels more than others at following action.  That is simply a function of it's advanced AF system, not because the camera is "made" for that purpose (only).  Heck, there's even yet another thread going right now with someone wondering why their pics are so noisy above iso 300.  While at the same time, there are a couple of threads with people showing off how their 3200 iso shots look great, and they really do.  I can understand why some long time posters here who don't mind sifting through the threads trying to help people might feel as though their heads and brick walls seem to meet, a lot.
