Im upgrading from the 400d which was a decent camera when it came out...After about 25000 exposures in all weather conditions and temperatures, the 400d is still working as on it's first day. But i envy the video and af functions newer cameras have...so im ashamed to tell, but YES! i have preordered a 7D for 1200.- Euros (Body) without VAT (i have my own shop, so i buy at the distributor...). Estimated shipping date is the 24th of sept.
All the whining about "ahh it is no full frame, useless, too expensive for a crop camera... too much pixels for that small sensor" i can hold against: the 7d's sensor is completely new designed. With it's mulitlayer-layout the imagequality is way above any other conventional sensor with such a high mp rate. I think, fullframe had it's time but the days of high quality crop and thour-third sensors are coming!
