New 60D owner had a 7D that bit the dust & could use opinions....

I had my &D for 8 great months. I took about 10,000 photos on it during that time. I had purchased it at best buy along with there black tie plan.

Long story short Monday was the 3rd time I had to take it to them due to the camera freezing up during use. I was told since it was the 3rd time it was now considered a lemon.

I have some upcoming photo shoots not to mention my daughters prom in which I had to have a camera. They did not have a 7D in stock nor could they get me 1 in time for my appointments. So I decided to give the 60D a chance. I really do like it but they just kept repeating YOU ARE MAKING A HUGE MISTAKE THIS CAMERA IS A BIG STEP DOWN FROM THE 7D IT IS NOT PROFESSIONAL AT ALL. I know the &D is more ruggued has more features but with that said is the 60D not also a good camera?

Also even though the 7D I had was under manufacturer warranty they used my almost $400.00 service to replace it and wanted me to purchase another service plan. PlusWhen I originally bought the 7D it was a tax free day and if they had have ordered the 7D I would have had to pay around $200.00 more to cover the taxes.

Right now I have the 60D and a $700.00 store credit.

Guess what I am wondering is should I feel like I am less of a photographer, that my equipment really is not professional now, that I took a HUGE step backwards? I just cannot see paying anymore out at bestbuy.

Thanks for listening,

Cherish every minute and be kind to others because life is short and our time is to precious to waste.
