Default It Arrived

Got home yesterday and my new 7D and EF S 17-55mmf/2.8 IS USM lens were there waiting for me. Bought a Blue Crane Digital - Basic Controls DVD and have started going through it and am amazed at how easy this camera is to use. Thought I might be biting off more than I could chew going from a Canon A620 to this, but am now so happy that I went straight to the 7D. The ergonomics are perfect for my hands - all I have to do is remember which buttons do what without looking. It's so simple and fast to change settings. Have today and tomorrow off so guess what I'll be doing most of that time? We have a "Bad Taste" theme dance (ballroom) this Sat night so that should be a good baptism of fire so to speak. Am pretty confident already that I won't need any flash at all. Will post a few pics next week so I can be critiqued. Have always respected constructive criticism. Learnt many years ago from go-kart racing that you do what the guns do, ask lots of questions and learn from others mistakes.
