The Canon EOS 7D Digital SLR Camera with EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens appears to be a strong contender against the Canon EOS 5D Mark II Digital Camera Kit with Canon 24-105mm f/4L IS USM AF Lens. It seems that Canon really listened to a lot of users on this camera. Notable advantages of the EOS 7D include:
• Higher frames per second due to TWO image processors. This will be a welcome addition for sports and outdoor shooters.
• Another big deal for those who like to shoot with a lot of off-camera lighting is the addition of wireless flash control. This appears to negate the need for an expensive master flash to control off-camera flashed.
• Hugely improved video framerate options. Canon has created the new king of SLR Video with the 7D. The new framerate options will allow for better syncing with external sound, and the 60fps/720p mode should allow for much smoother action shots and more creativity with slow-motion, again, very handy for outdoor photographers that want to cross over.
• The video sound sample rate has been increased, a refinement that shows that Canon is really listening to amateur filmmakers desires for a camera that includes video as well-sorted feature rather than an afterthought. And speaking of improving video options, the EOS 7D has Manual Video Control and dedicated video buttons right out of the box.
• The remaining advantages of the 5D Mark II? Well, since the 5D Mark II has a much lower pixel density, it will exhibit much smoother, noise-free images at higher ISO settings, which makes it stand-out for low-light shooting, and the higher overall resolution helps for those really large applications.
• One of the most obvious differences though, will be the significant price difference of about $1,000 less for the EOS 7D. The 7D's lower price, combined with it's higher performance in many categories make it the superior choice for all but a narrow set of high-end consumers and pros.
