>>Just wondering what your basis is for this statement.
>>I know of a lot of photographers that use canon gear to

>I am sure people can bird on any number of cameras, I did some

>My comment is based on my experience having shot the 7D on

>his 7D based largely on the autofocus system.

>Do a search and you will find numerous people who complain

>graphical focal point aid (the black box as my friend called
>it) is poorly done and obstrusive as they stay lit until you
>take your photo.

>While the 7D has Canon's best DX autofocus system to date - it
>is not as good as the D300s, D7000 and will be leagues behind
>the d7100. I would note I have not tried the 7D post 2.0
>firmware update so it may be better.
