Testing? So if you don't like it you will send it back? No offense, but that sound pretty lame. The 7D? It's a solid camera, but it won't help you take better pix. As for the lenses, don't buy cheap. If your budget is low then buy a lesser body and put the big $ into a great lens. Maybe a good prime or L series zoom like the 24-70L 2.8.

I own several L series lenses, several non L primes and the kit lens. I gave the kit lens away. If I had to own one or two they would be the 24-70 and maybe the 50 1.4 or the 85 1.8

Either way I think you might want to consider another body and save a few $

Not offended. What's wrong with testing ? How else would I know if it fits my needs ? If you buy and do not like something you return, sell or through it out.

On the subject - my main concern is fast and accurate focus. I got spoiled by Nikon D7000 AF, tried my friend's Canon 60D with 18-200 lens and AF was not anywhere close to D7000. Read good things about 7D AF system, that's why looking into it. Thanks for lens recommendation.
