The 7D viewfinder isn't too bad at all.


There's no getting around the physics: it's got to be either smaller or dimmer, because it's gathering less light. From brief handling, they went with dimmer for the 7D.

I know many people seem to be happy with APS-C, and many were happy with pentamirrors on Canon film days. I never understood how.

As surely APS-C has a wider lens selection than FF as it can use all EF lenses and also EF-S?

I'd rather not derail the thread by getting into a full frame/crop discussion. The demand from people who want a full frame lens set is demonstrated and Canon is responding to it here.
