What is "Build Quality" to You?
5 months ago

I just read another thread where the 7D was praised repeatedly for "better build quality". I know what makes me think one item is built better than another, but I'm never quite sure what other people mean when they say things like that about cameras. Is it the performance specs, how it works (e.g. ergonomics), how it feels to hold (e.g. the heft), how it feels in use (e.g. responsiveness), what you believe to be superior materials, fit and finish, what you've been told about invisible features like weather sealing, price, prestige, an aura of invincibility, a tingle your gentleman bits...?

I'm interested to hear what makes you perceive or believe that one camera is "better built" than another?

Canon EOS 7D
