I have watched and read reviews and I am very impressed with the EOS 7D. Now, I am planning on using this as a hobby not a business and this would be my very first DSLR camera. I am a pretty quick learner. A new EOS 7D would be at the high end of the spectrum for what I am willing to spend.

A friend of mine bought a used 7D this week, and I spent a day shooting with it with a high-quality lens.  The camera is well-built, ergonomic, with excellent image quality.  If you buy it used, I think it would be an excellent choice.
