Before I make the expensive plunge, are you "still" satisfied with the 7D? Any CONS / Dislikes / Regrets with this dSLR?

How effective do you find the AS system to be (especially at the long telephoto end)?

BTW, when looking at Minolta Maxxum AF lenses, what does the (D) in the model number me?

Example: Minolta AF 100-300mm F4.5-5.6 APO (D)

D is the distance info...

Older lenses do not have this - This is critical only when taking flash picture because one has the option to weight this distance data into the flash computation - the ADI mode.


G is the L equivalent to Canon
... and SSM is the Minlolta version of USM the ultrasonic drive

No regrets, because I study and compare all competitors beforeI choose 7D. You can get equal or slightly better cameras from Canon but price doubles(if you count IS lenses)and won't justifythe hobbyist'spocket. D lenses are required to work with flash distanceintegration system. I have 24-105 D lens whichI use with flash. But Iselected 2nd hand non-D 100-300 becauseI use such big zoom only for naturephotosin daylight whereI do not need aflash...AS system is extremely effective at telephoto. 100-300 becomes 150-450 in 7D and at 450 mm zoom,Icango downto 1/100 sec at hand (instead of 1/500 requiredinother cams)
