doesn't the k7 top out at 6400?

and actually the k-x is a little better performer in noise than the big brother k-7. albeit without the rugged construction/weather seal and some other features.

Yes the K-7 goes to 6400. But at 6400iso the k-7 is less nosie then the T1i. It is even less noticeable as oppose to the k-x and t1i at 12800iso. I actually tested this when I was deciding on what dslr to get.

Thanks everyóne for your input... I am still weighing and comparing the K-7 and the Canon EOS 550D. I live in a cold climate, so weather-sealing is an important factor... But at the end of the day, I just hate to put down a thousand and then discover I could have bought a better camera. Anyway, I DO thank those who have added thoughts and info to this threád. Ned

WHERE can I download a GERMAN Owner Manual? - I have it in English

Included with 550D are FOUR printed manuals, sized for DWARFs. On 3 included CDs is no 550D PDF :-(

Wether for 500D nor 550D Canon lets download (german) manuals. Or I am blind ...

Default Canon T2i

Every camera I've purchased since 2005 (6 in all) I first read about it here at Steve's. All were on his "Best Cameras" list. I had decided my next camera would be the T1i. Then I read here about the T2i. I'm dissapointed Steve hasen't reviewed it yet, but at least he announced it. (It was just this past weekend that I finally found a full review elsewhere.) If it was not for Steve's, I would now be the not as happy owner of a T1i, but instead, I am waiting for delivey of my T2i from Dell. Thank You Steve for many years of great reviews.

Iiiiii never read a review about cameras - I bought the camera Iiiiiiii wanted.
Not cameras others declared for best.

Before buying a camera I loaded down manual, read it - and decided.

It's MY money, Iiiiii have to use camera, what others think is (for me) long x width x height x across.

Perhaps, but it is useful to find in depth reviews where sample images are made available, so you can make an informed decision.

Yeah, ultiamtely the camera I buy is the one I wanted to buy, and the decision is one I make. It's just nice to make an informed decision.

Thank You scaredpoet. "Informed decision". I like it. I tend to not buy much of anything until I have researched it and feel like I am getting the best/most for my money (hard earned money).
If I were a professional photographer knowing cameras would be my business. But since I am not, I very much appreciate (and greatly benefit) from the great work that others do in reviewing cameras and other products. Their passion for their art / profession / hobby help others like me to enjoy photography. My original comment was just to say "Thank You" to them.
