Re: There will be...

I have both cameras and normally I'll reach for the 5D2 every time. However in certain situations, like last weekend when I shot the action at a local mud volleyball tournament, I used the 7D. Later at home I compared the images from the 7D with the ones from last year's mud volleyball tournament when I had used my 5D2. Both times I had used my 70-200mm IS USM lens. And there's no question about it, the action images the 7D took are much better and sharper than the ones I took with the 5D2.

But for non action photography I much prefer the 5D2.

The UI is similar between the two cameras, although I think the layout of the 7D is a bit nicer. Size and weight is virtually identical between the two.
