Somehow after the Drobo fiasco, my spirit has been dampened a bit, and my desire to take pictures is not as enthusiastic as before. I have been bring my camera to work, but haven't been out shooting at lunch time. Could it be because I don't like the 7D as much as I thought I would? I am quite disappointed with the low ISO image quality of the 7D. Even at base ISO, noise in the shadow area makes me cringe. Why is Canon going backward now? It was known as the image quality king for many years, and after Nikon has surpass it with the D700/D3/D3x, Canon is now playing the mega pixel game. Sure it can claim to have highest number of pixels on the pro-sumer level of 18MP, but at what cost? Give me image quality over pixel count any time! I am, as with many others are, happy with 12MP of good quality pixels.
I like everything about the 7D, except the image quality. Why is there always something that ruins a near perfect camera?
End of ranting.
