Re: Is the 7D worth >$500 more than the 60D?

Hello Ingersoll,

Been a Nikon user since about 1980 (FM then Coolpix, then d70).

Went over to Canon (a) for a change and (b) to see
if the Canon lenses were as good as they were cracked
up to be. Although if Nikon had made a half sensibly sized and
priced cut-down D700...................

7d plus 17-40 f4 "L" and 60mm EFS macro suggests it was a good
move.

Might have been nice to get a Nikon FF and get my AI lenses
"back" but I very much doubt that the 50mm and 28mm primes
could beat the 17-40mm zoom. And the 60mm macro "doubles"
as a short telephoto that beats the bejasus out of my 135mm f2.8 AI.

Go for it!

Alistair
