    What kind of RAW editing software do you use?

    At the current time, I would guess the software that it came with!

    Lightroom 2.5 is the latest (Sept 15th) and it added support for the D300s, D3000, E-P1, and two new Panasonics.

    I don't think there's an update for ACR yet either.

    So, until they release updates for LR or ACR, you're stuck with DPP. It shouldn't be too long before Adobe releases updates.

    I finally found some answers on Aperture. It took Apple 3-4 weeks to make updates for the 5dmk2 so hopefully it won't be too much longer.

    For those who have the 7D and aperture you can send Apple some feedback to hopefully push them along at Apple - Aperture - Feedback

    Indeed ACR and Lightroom use the same engine and run identical release schedules. When Lightroom 2.6 comes out ACR 5.6 will too :)

    Well, as soon as mine ships (2 weeks ...) I'll be using Lightroom.

    A friend of mine who recently bought a 7D says that Lightroom can open the uncompressed RAW files. I think he uses the latest version of Lightroom.

    Yeah, I sent one of my RAW files from my 7D to a friend that uses Lightroom and he opened it up no problem. I almost broke down and spent the $280 on Lightroom, but I'm going to try to stick it out with Apple. I just don't want to spend the money right now. (Especially right after buying a new camera!)

    Just did a quick google.

    - 7D is unsupported in Lightroom 2.5 and ACR 5.5
    - Yes Lightroom will open some of the files, but a quick look down under the profile tab says "BETA" in big letters.
    - The ability to open is sketchy. One user reported most of his files would open, another reported more than half produced an unrecognised file error. Same result in both Lightroom and ACR.
    - Apparently if you can open your file the quality out of Lightroom for the 7D at this point is poor. Users on other forums are reporting visible noise from their ISO100 shots along with heavily oversaturated colours.

    Why the hell did canon make a Crop frame Pro DSLR anyway? and why did everyone buy it?

    My guess is because it was new or they thought those hoax pictures of the Canon camera with nikon mounts was real that had dvd disc and photoshop built in etc..

    My guess would be upgrade. Getting the the 7D after using the 20D since it was released seemed like a good idea.

    Could be because smaller sensors are far cheaper to make. Could be because the Nikon D300 was many times more of a camera than the 50D so Canon didn't have a competitor. Could be because quite a few pros prefer the APS-C sensor (especially wildlife photographers who'd rather buy a 400mm than a 600mm lens). Could be because there is a market for a pro APS-C camera (clearly since people bought Nikon D1, D2x, and D2h).

    Why did people buy it? Could be because it's a good camera at a good price.

    If it weren't 10pm I'm sure I could come up with like 20 more reasons.
