I started out a Canon girl, back in the 35mm days. Got myself the Elan 7, along with a Macro EF 100mm 1:2.8. I love the lens. Got a Rebel to go with it, crappy...(about 10-12 years ago) Sold it in december for a new Powershot, yay love it!
I became a Nikon user in 2004 when I started working for a newspaper. They gave me a D200 with all the fixins. It was such a step up for me, I was on top of the world with that monster. When I quit in 2007 I bought the D2Xs from a friend who also worked for the paper. I shoot a lot of sports, do a bunch of portraits, and a ton of events.
I just recently started a new hobby of hybridizing hibiscus, and it has brought me back to my macro roots. Now I want a camera to go with the 100mm lens. I was thinking of just a nicer Rebel model. Something that will take nice color shots, and also something that I can bring on vacation, around partys, and maybe use as a back up camera (I am getting sucked into doing a wedding, I hate shooting them).
Talking to my camera savy friend, he suggested I just go for the 7D. After looking at it, I think I absolutely am in love. My question here is, does anyone own a 7D that can tell me what they think about it? I think it may be my Nikon replacement. Does it do well with high action shots? And good in low light situations, so I don't panic at this wedding??
Would love to hear any thoughts,
