It seems that over the years I am cycling through each major camera manufacturer. I started (wrt SLRs) with Minolta, but after my Minolta 7D broke down and Sony (who bought Minolta’s camera business) tried to screw me over on my refund I decided to move on and switched to Nikon. I loved my Nikon D80 but I realized my passion was more in wildlife and sports. Looking to upgrade my D80 for a better camera I strangely fell upon the Canon 7D.
So here I am. Sold all my Nikon equipment and now with Canon. I got to say, I love the Canon 7D. Its going to take some time to learn. Way too many options and configurations. I like the ergonomics but its very different from the Nikon. So its taking a while to getting used to the camera. But I love the high FPS and the high ISO performance is great. I read some people complaining about problems focusing. I have experienced none.
So in the coming weeks I will try to write up on the new Canon experience. Its time to start taking pictures.
