Default In decision limbo between E-20n and the 7hi. HELP

I am in limbo. I'm looking at the Oly E-20n and the 7hi.
The buffer speed and low shutter speed of the e-20 are no issue to me. I mainly shoot landscapes, people, events, and commercial

My questions are.

Are there any other semi-pros or higher shooting the 7hi.

Did anyone else consider the E-20n?

How is the flash performance on the 7hi and does the external flashes AF assist work on it. :?

What off camera flashes are you shooting if aftermarket? Do I need the "most expensive 5600" for necessary results in low light"

Occasionally I do freelance work. Has anyone used the 7hi for weddings?

I've gotten a wealth of info here.Thanks

- On board flash is ok for short distance only.
- External flashes AF beam does not operate as I know.
Choice of external flashes depends on your need in terms of power , and in term of the modes you intend to use ;
- If you want TTL: only Minolta flashes and “compatible” makes: for example, Metz with appropriate adapter
- If you are ok with manual and auto-aperture mode, the choices are wide

D7 family has an advantage in landscape and people pics with the wide 28mm lens

Yes I did but I think this camera started to show its age:

The D7hi is also highly flexible:

However the E-20 is also a very good camera, and you can't go wrong either way... :? If you buy one you probably miss the other :lol: :lol: :lol:
