Canon EOS 7D

Review Date: Oct 24, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: $1,699.00 | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Fantastic Camera - Great Build, AF, AWB, Metering & Image Quality- Outstanding value for Nature & Action photographers
Cons:
None so far

I was looking for an upgrade for my 40D with better AF and more cropability for nature shooting, and the 7D has proved to be the perfect camera for my needs. Everything about it is better than the xxD cameras I have used, and it truly represents a new category from Canon. The AF system is far more sophisticated than xxD and xxxD cameras, and it seems some folks are having difficulty mastering it. I have found it does an excellent job once you learn how to properly use it. Love it more each time I use it.

 
Canon EOS 5D Mark II

Review Date: Mar 14, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 10 

 
Pros: Resolution, dynamic range, lack of high ISO noise, live view, great LCD, new menu system, better weather sealing than 5D
Cons:
VF blackout time, weather sealing should be better - both minor issues for me

This camera produces stunning images and is reasonably priced. I had the original 5D for 2 years, and I couldn't imagine that the new one could be much better. I have quickly realized that the 5D2 is well worth the upgrade, especially for landscape photography. This camera will be with me for a minimum of 5 years, and probably even more.
