Not liking what I'm hearing but the 6D. Low light focus thumbs down.

That statement seems to be the exact opposite of everything that I've read about the 6D. Low light focus on the 6D is supposed to be a big advantage. Try these:

LensRentals
DigitalRev

Many amatuers are selling their 7Ds to buy 5D3s but that doesn't make the 7D a bad buy at the moment. It's a great camera at an excellent price right now.

I have the 7D and 6D. In my experience, the 6D does focus much better in low light but the 7D is head and shoulders above the 6D for action shots in reasonable light. I'm planning to get a 5D3 soon and am on the fence on whether to keep the 7D for a 2nd backup as well as shots where I'm focal length limited.

The 7D is not a perfect camera but in reasonable lighting, it does a great job.

Having owned a couple of 7D bodies, I agree that they're a very good value...especially at current used prices. No camera is perfect but the 7D is very solid for the money IMO.

IMO there's not much risk in trying one if you pickup a used one here on the B&S at a fair price. If you're not happy with it you can always resell at minimal loss. Even if prices are falling a bit lately it will still be cheaper than renting (I think they're about $80/week from lensrentals.com).

Depends on the condition. Most of the ones in the Buy/Sell forum are going for $800ish if they are in 8 or 9 condition. If they are 9+, usually $850, and ones close to new are $900ish. Think the Ebay/CL used price is probably $900ish as well

That's because chicken little said "the sky is falling" so, lots of 7D's are for sale.

In all seriousness, I'd agree that people who have bought a 5D III and kept their 7D are deciding that their 7D is not getting much use.

I'd like to see 5D III sales numbers since release. I wouldn't be surprised if these sales numbers are really high.

Regarding the 7D, I've gone back to the future and re-acquired one and actually appreciate it more the 2nd time around. Regarding the 6D, low light focussing was extremely capable, in my opinion.

With the new firmware update on the M, why would anyone choose to keep their 7d? Real photographer's don't need 8fps to make good photos!

My 7d was companion/complement to a 5d classic, 5d2, amd (for a short time) 5d3. Once I got the 5d3, the 7 went

Nothing to get to excited about. I upgraded to the Canon 6D and because of that I sold my 7D. Very good camera but not in the same category as a FF camera. Got lots of excellent shots with it but when I got the 6D I used the 7D less and less. Someone got a really good camera for a fair price.
