I appreciate that but I like Canon. And there’s literally no system out there regardless of brand, that can out do the 7D in its core competencies, for under $1000 for just the camera itself. That’s why it’s still a workhorse for professional wildlife and sports photographers. So it seems that $1200 doe like new, bought this year, with the WiFi kit and 18-135mm USM lens is a “steal”

I have 5 lenses that I really like and put a lot of time into choosing, and it would take time to find them again at a good price, on a different platform. I also know several of the lenses that I have cost a lot more on other platforms, so I would expect to have to spend at least another $1000 in used and new lenses, maybe more, just to replace what I have.

I’m no expert but I’ve read the Nikon d500 is the benchmark and doesn’t seem that expensive used. Maybe worth a quick look? Just trying to help excuse my ignorance.

Having used both, there is not a lot in it between the two. They are both wonderful cameras each with their strengths. Personally, I jprefer the ergonomics of the 7D2 so stick with that.

I found the AF of the 90d a bit strange, as I believe the 7d Ii had good reviews for that? Yet the 90d has a 45 pt system like my rebel.

I wonder what’s the best in real world for AF out of the two. Seems Canon didn’t want to stop people buying 7dii’s?
