well...considered it's 2 years ago....you must have been enjoying it very much already :)

I just upgraded from an Rebel XS 1000D :D

Again for those who are really interested....refresh the page once in a while... i'd say every 10mins?...there might be some people cancelled their order so it might show again...but there is less and less chance....i got the deal to work twice this morning.

I toyed with this when it was in stock and did not pull the trigger after comparing it to the 60D and T4i. I went with the t4i with the 18-135 STM (better) lens + got the SR100 bag, extra OEM batter, 16gb class 10 SD card, +++ for $880 tax and shipping in from Vistek. What am I missing here by going with the 7D. The max value for the tripod and the 50mm lens is $150.

Here is a side by side review.

No need to cry, 2 years ago this was really high-end. You got yourself a kick- ***** setup! Today, this is still a fantastic camera, but looks dated compared to a D600/D800 from Nikon.
Personally, I think the best Canon deal on the market ATM (if you don't mind a plastic exterior) is [0]=838668]THIS PM at Futureshop or Bestbuy @ $723+tax

The 7d has a better processor and takes pictures faster whereas you'll sometimes notice a delay with the t4i. Not something you will usually notice but if you're taking important time sensitive photos if definitely noticeable.

The body is magnesium on the 7D and is water and dust sealed as well. Also the joystick, and especially the thumb dial on the right make a big difference in usability IMO.

That's cheaper than just getting the body alone! TFS!

Agreed but I could not justify the cost difference of over $600.

I guess one would safely agree that the 7D is more for the professional photographer and the T4i for the amateur. The deal that Vistek had which included the camera and the 18-135 STM + the kit, normally worth $180 and sold with the camera for $30 made it an easy decision. Agreed the 7d is a better camera but not by much.

The Canon 7D is a champ in durability.

Here's a torture test with ice and fire: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RCT-YMgjm9k

Also, don't forget the new firmware that breathes some new life in the 7D.
