Smok'n deals are cool, but if it's from a e-tailer you might want to double check their ratings at <a href="http://www.resellerratings.com/" target="_blank">http://www.resellerratings.com/</a>

If the price seems too good to be true on a camera, it usually is. Use BandH as your guide

snwmot 02-08-2010 8:41 PM

It was listed for 1350?

dakid 02-08-2010 8:50 PM

i'd question it. <BR> <BR>$1700 at b&amp;h (body only).

7D rocks! A friend and I both bought one and the pictures are incredible, you won't be disappointed even at the regular price.

bradlovellphotography 02-08-2010 10:31 PM

email them and ask them if they're an authorized retailer for Canon. If not, that's a huge plus to stay away from them. Priced that low I'd about guarantee they're not. <BR> <BR>Check and see if that "one year warranty" is from the manufacturer as well. <BR> <BR>Not trying to disappoint you, but I don't want to see you get burned. Shop from a reputable company so you don't have any worries if there's a problem.

ok thats good advice thanks guys ill look into it before i buy that's why i ask here first lol but other than that how about the camera it'll be my first cam as well i'm a bit worried i might be overwhelmed but the quality of the picture is just to hard to pass up

richd 02-09-2010 6:25 AM

At $1350 they'll probably want you to buy a cleaning cloth or warranty for $350.

You might want to check out the new rebel that's coming out in march. $899 with the kit lens.

Don't forget that you will need lenses too. Good glass will add another $800 - 5,000+ to your purchase. <BR> <BR> <BR>And to think I just switched from Canon too... come on Nikon!

02-09-2010 3:16 PM

Kung Fu, <BR>Just curious why you switched to Nikon from Canon? <BR>I'm debating between the 7D and D300s. Both great looking cameras on paper. I'm wondering who's better in the real world.

steezyshots 02-09-2010 3:46 PM

Traitor! HAHAHA!

lives2wake 02-10-2010 6:50 AM

So comparing the 7d and the T2i. 8fps vs 3.5fps. I'm sure there are a lot more of advanced features on the 7d but if it films the same as the 7d, why pay an extra $1000?

richd 02-10-2010 8:20 AM

The 7D has some waterproofing, the Rebel probably very little. The 7D has a much better AF system and better high ISO. Lot's of other little differences as well.

malibumike 02-10-2010 2:46 PM

JP, <BR> <BR>It depends on the application. I use both Nikon and Canon products. Some would argue that Nikon is better for fast action sports because of the faster Frames per sec. but now the 7D can achieve 8 FPS right out of the box. As far as image quality I personally think Nikon and Canon's are similarly match, if comparing like products. <BR> <BR>However, if you will be using the video function, I don't think Nikon can touch Canon's quality, yet. That's why I bought a 7D. I don't shoot a lot of photos with it I mainly use it as a B camera on shoots. <BR> <BR>I really enjoy using the 7D, and the quality is excellent. I would highly recommend it if you plan on using the video function. Otherwise it comes down to which one you like better. I know a lot of people that have picked one over the other simply because of the ergonomics and menu layout.

the wife just got herself a 7D a few months ago and i sometimes find myself using it for sports shots more than my 1DmkIII. i think that's how good it is.

wakesurf12 03-11-2010 9:48 AM

I am in love with those new Canon cameras! They are so fun to work with and the quality is amazing! Unfortunately I am heavily invested in Nikon right now otherwise I would probably have picked up one of those by now. Just waiting for Nikon to catch up. I mean, they HAVE to otherwise they will probably feel the hurt of it quite a bit. But come on!!!!

Yes, get a 7D.
