I know this is some people problem back day. I always wanted to having 7D. For me its such a great camera. I've been doing research for months reading pros and cons and reviews for 7D.
But something change my mind so fast when I saw the price tag of 60D drops steeply. It drops $150 in my local store from $850 in March 2013 to only $700 by now!!
And this making more than $500 price gap with the 7D.
I once taking indoor basketball shots with my friend's 60D and his 70-200 F4 IS
. In my opinion its great but the only thing missing is I missed the moment.
I am using iso 800 and it doesnt enough. So I moved to 1600 It's OK
, I could get more thack sharp photos more often but the noise is noticably high even with camera's built in LCD
screen. It's OK
, too, I can use some like Nik's software to minimise the problem.
I've never taking shot using 7D so far, no one of my colleagues own 7D I can borrow.
If there's 7D owner who might tell the story about sports photography with that mighty 8fps burst 50 shots non stop with JPEG and 20 shots non stop with RAW (CMIIW
) that'd be very pleasure to hear.
Using 60D for aviation photography is enough for me but this decision is for long time period (about 5 years, maybe). Looking the price drop on the 60D, I am worried about its future resale value compared to 4 years 7D which is drops $500 since its launch and 3 years 60D drops $400 since its launch too.
With exactly same image sensor and other similar features to the 7D, is $500 price gap is worth of money to spend? Should I go with 7D or just 60D and saving more money for other lens? And what is your opinion about 60D's price drop? Is that normal? hehehe
Anyway, I'm sorry for any grammatical errors, thank you and cheers.
