    Default Canon introduces 7D and three new lenses!!!

    Canon has announced the 7D and three new lenses, the 100mm macro finally got the L and the IS it so badly deserved.

    7D looks the goods, 18mp, 100% veiw finder, 19 point AF, 8fps, up to 12,800iso, blah, blah

    I was thinking to upgrade my 30D which I am using for more than 3 years. 1DM3 is expensive and it was only 10mp. 5DMII has very low fps rate. and 1DsM3 is too difficult to reach.
    Finally Canon heard me and here it is. I am really excited, this one looks just perfect to me

    Don't under estimate 10mp Fatih, the 1DIII and 40D produce outstanding images, remember the more pixels you cram on a small sensor the worse the noise gets, time will tell. The 50D has worse noise than the 40D, and for me i would much rather have better noise handling than higher megapixels.

    Dan, I am happy with my 8mp 30D and IMHO 40D and 50D are not really big jumps. That's why I was looking something like 1D and 5D.
    It seems 7D has everything that I need; 8fps, sealing, HD video, 19 point AF, dual Digic 4 processors and 18Mp.

    Looks like a good camera, and would be a real winner if the noise held up really well. I hope they've fixed up the autofocusing system as well, sounds like they might have.
    The 100 f2.8 L also looks great, I wonder whether its going to be much more expensive than the 100 2.8??

    Camera price is $1699USD, expect around high 2's-3K AUD

    100L is $1049USD, probably around $1800AUD, so yeah a bit more expensive but maybe worth it. Interestingly it seems at this stage that canon will continiue to make the existing 100mm macro.

    Thanks for posting this Dan. Very cool.
    Yeah the built-in speedlite transmitter is awesome! So is the level in the viewfinder. Buffer is ordinary though - only 15 shots in RAW - that's only 2 seconds of shooting
    AF certainly sounds alot better with all cross type sensors - especially 19 of them.
    Makes me very excited about the things that will be in the next 1 series
    Cheers, Dave

    I must say that the specs on paper are tempting me to upgrade. But this time I'll be waiting till I see some high ISO images before I think to hard about it.

    I bought my 7D 2 days ago and I could test 4 hours only.
    Some sample shots that I took yesterday. 100% crop and resized ones:
