7D sensor weakness
In reply to Luther T, Mar 24, 2013

You only notice the 7D deficiancies when you can compare it to a better high ISO or DR camera. I bought the 7D for sports which is a good combination. However for macros and casual photography I saw a usefulness with an articulated screen and later purchased a 60D.

Even between these two models I notice an improvement in high ISO <1600 shots with the 60D

Those that can't afford fast glass will need to bump ISO to use the camera for sports in just about any situation outside of good daylight. If you compare the 7D to just about any full frame the difference is even more pronounced.

In fact I can get better IQ with the 16mp Olympus OM-D mft camera, but I still hang on to the 7D for it's AI servo, high fps rate and adequate buffer. When I don't need these featured I take another body, mainly due to the noisy high ISO and lesser DR.
