Great shot. I have yet to "get" a butterfly but, on the list. This one looks like stained glass. Really nice. I like the framing as well.

Photo Van: I've had my 7D for the past 4.5 years and have enjoyed it very much. If the new model is half as good in regards to build quality, feel, responsiveness and, for us "just plain enthusiasts", fun factor, this new one is going to be absolutely fantastic - just like the 7D was when new. Hey, it doesn't cook eggs,(presumably) but it surely is a fine photographic tool that, I'm sure will reward the user with high DSLR performance for many years to come. I've only got 10,000 or so clicks on my 7D and never even upgraded the firmware and it has never had a hiccup.
Buy a good camera and enjoy a good camera. Keep it for awhile and get to know it. Think of how long you used to keep your old film cameras. Five years is nothing.

Yes Armandino - pretty much looks brand new as well. I'll shoot anything with it. When I bought the 6D last Christmas, thought I would try to sell the 7D. Glad that I did not. With the 6D, also purchased the 24 105 f4 and on that 7D, sharp as a tack. I never used a great lens on the 7 except for my 16 35 2.8, ver. 1 but real good glass makes a huge difference on the 7. Next will be the 70 200, 4 IS which I look very forward to using on the 7D and the 6D. As for what I shoot, please have a look. You can see which camera I used on most of the pics. Have a good evening!

On Canon EOS 5D Mark III preview (901 comments in total)

Wow. A lot of nit picking about this camera. I can understand it to a degree, due to that price tag. I own a 7D and lick my chops thinking about owning the 5DIII with it's full frame, vastly improved focus system and them some. Yeah, a pop up flash would be good but, oh well. If I had the cash. I wouldn't hesitate buying this, what will surely be a phenomenal camera. I would like to have a full frame and almost bought the 5DII but ended up with the 7D because of it's better controls and focus system. I just think it's great that Canon has finally built that "7D with a full frame sensor" and then some. As someone else wrote, this camera is mostly going to be purchased by pros and folks with a lot of extra dough and those occasionally fiscally irresponsible camera freaks. There is that potential in anyone who posts here, ey??
Have fun!

Great self portrait! How did you get the shot so sharp - how did you focus?

Beautiful and powerful image. To me, there is a lot of feeling here. Not sure what meaning I am getting from it but, something. Beautiful image.
