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

I have the 7D and have used the 60D a lot... I can honestly say it is worth the extra money! weather proofing is vitally important for me as i spend a lot of time on the water and in average conditions. I did a hike with 7D and a 24-105mm F4 L and the camera got drenched in a down pour, and is yet to miss a beat!

As a consumer grade camera the 60D is awesome, however i find it a bit tacky compared to the 7D... i feel the swivel screen makes it feel cheap, and it does not feel nearly as solid at the 7D.

the AF on the 7D has been spectacular for me, i use it to shoot Marlin and Sailfish jumping out the water, and it focus's like a dream!!

i guess if money is a big issues, then considering the 60D with an awesome lens would be a fantastic camera!

Either way as long as you go for a canon and not a nikon you'll be sweet (lol jk just wanted to ruff up some feathers)

Enjoy shooting!
