In my mind, the best ever value will be the Canon EOS 7D. Why? It does everything well. Fast movers, slow movers, non-movers. It does it better than any 1.6x camera. Solid AF system, 1080p hdslr, flash commander, ergonomics, 1-series weather seal, great IQ (just look at Imagemaster and that Robdickinson's landscape images) etc...
Firmware 2.0 just add extends the value of the 7d. Smarter auto ISO and 26 raw burst. That's 1d4 territory.
In fact it does so well that it is the camera that every other camera seems to be compared upon. Just look at the multitude of 7d vs. <5d2, 1dIII, 1dIV, 50d, GT-R, Pippa's arse...> whatever threads. This alone goes not only to show how versatile this camera is but also how a great value it is. When it depreciates down to $500, you will have one hell of a camera in the 7d.
I agree. It's rather unusual for Canon to cram in so many genuinely useful features in a DSLR, it seemed almost like a panic move by Canon to counter Nikon's increasingly popular cameras. In contrast, look at Canon's latest FF camera with its single axis level, no pop up flash despite being marketed as "entry level" FF, no 100% VF, and could've-been-better AF.
