The doubts of the 7D come from it's aging sensor at higher ISO's.

All these shots were at low ISO's and the bird taken at ISO800 looks a tad soft.

The wing flipping duck is brilliant(gadwall nr2). But it was taken under great lighting conditions.

Nothing here kills the concerns about the 7D in 2014.

Skilled, talented photographers doing great work aren't always concerned about the absolute latest and greatest tech. Knowing their equipment and how to get the most from it is far more important.

I agree on your sentiments here. The photographer makes the picture not the camera. However no one can deny that the Apsc sensors from the competition show more latitude in post and higher resolution.

These things can really help make a picture even better. Canon has failed by showing no improvements in this regard for over 4 years.

You said to have no reason to upgrade your 7D after 4 years. Which is probably the right thing to do because you must leave behind your beloved lenses if you want to gain something significant.

I think that if Canon would be using new fabs or buys Sony/Toshiba sensors your opinion will change very quickly in this regard.
