That shutter blind is a real 'delight feature'. Marginal usefulnes, but delightful to have.

I wouldn't have said marginal actually. It does seem a pity that when I'm using Live View on the 7D with any significant amount of light from behind I have to cover the eyepiece with a rag. Seems a bit primitive for a 'flagship' DSLR!!

The intervalometer, nice to have but I've never actually used it. The real plus feature the Nikons have is a sensible and useful VF display for the electronic level. I use it all the time. The Canon way of using the AF points is both imprecise and hard to read, it also means you have to switch between level and AF. Plus a lot to Nikon there.

I haven't seen the Nikon implementation, but Canon's is poor, that's a fact.
