I have decided finally to buy a Canon EOS 7D. My 5D Mark II is a great camera, but it is not really a camera for action and sports. A cropped frame camera like the 7D also has advantages over full frame for telephoto shots. I will definitely write a review on this new camera and I will likely do my usual comparison shots as in previous reviews with other camera bodies like the EOS 40D, 50D and/or 5D Mark II.
I only have the camera for one night and have not had much time to play around with it yet, but my preliminary impression is good. A very solid and well made body. I have taken a few quick test shots at high ISO. My initial impression is that ISO 6400 seems quite usable although not really up to the standard of 5D Mark II, perhaps better than 50D. But I will reserve judgment till after I do proper testing and comparison shots in the full review.
The following are a couple of RAW shots taken at ISO 6400. The RAW files were converted to jpg with Canon’s DPP, the jpg were re-sized with Photoshop and some sharpening applied. No other post-processing were done.
