My buddy brought over his 7D for me to play with today. It's an amazing body. It's very well built and the fit and feel of it surpasses that of a 50D. The view finder and LCD overlay are superb and it left me really wanting to go buy one. The AF system is very nicely done, the controls are intuitive and simple to use. It's a VAST improvement over the 50D IMHO from top to bottom. Here are some test images I shot in my studio. I shot from a tripod using a 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens. The aperture was set to f/8 (Av mode) and I adjusted the ISO from 100 to 12800. I let the camera decide the shutter speed. I set the white balance to tungsten. Images were shot in RAW and processed in DPP, exported as JPG's. No noise reduction was done to them and no other edits of any time were done. These are straight out of camera with the exception of the last two images at the bottom of this post. ISO 100: ISO 400: ISO 800: ISO 1600: ISO 3200: ISO 6400: Now, here's a heavy crop of the ISO 100 image to show how sharp the image is. I opened these in DPP (shot in RAW) and exported them with default settings. ISO 100 No sharpening: ISO 100 Sharpened 80% in CS3: I was humbled by the high ISO performance actually. It's very impressive for an 18mp crop body. I'll let you guys be the judge, so what do you think?
