Hi, I am after some advice on the following :-

I have been shooting with an Olympus E3 for the past few years after upgrading from the E1. I am not sure where the 4/3's system is going so I have decided to change system. I have been looking at Canon and Nikon although slightly favouring Canon.

I have been looking at the 7D and also the 60D. Not sure if the 60D would be a backwards step from the E3 though. Is anyone familiar with all these cameras to offer any advice?

Also seen a few things mentioned about problems with the 7D focusing?


Thanks for any advice.

fast AF is mission critical
updated sensor desirable

forget 60D AF is less than 7D
7D has too many reported AF issues which makes it sound like a risk

D7000 isnt perfect either although note D300s has has better AF than any of them and better ergonomics than most (individuality plays a part)

just to make it harder, I would think D300s in particular and 7D 'perhaps' are not too far from replacement
check respective forums on that matter.

outside of all that D7000
