    My 4 year old 300 just gain a bit in value!! Wondering if the missus would let me sell it off, and get the new 400...I knew I shoulda rolled Darren when he was last in LA!! He had the new 800 with him. Now that's a lens!!

    Although still not available at retailers in the US as yet, the prices for the new series of L lenses have been posted at ADORAMA.

    OLD EF300 f2.8 L......$4499.00 USD

    NEW EF300 f2.8L.......$7000.00 USD


    OLD EF400 f2.8L.......$7190.00 USD

    NEW EF400 f2.8L.......$11000.00USD


    I really do not want to see what the replacements for the 500mm,600mm and 800mm lenses would cost. Seeing how well the last generation of this line of lenses performed, I may consider adding a couple of primes from the old line while they are available......for a hobby insanity! As a professional, you probably have to sell a lot of pix.

    The EOS 60D is now available in Germany. Price is around 1100 Euros (body only) with deliveries from October on. To my surprise, the price for a 50D has climbed from 650 Euros (best offer) last week to 730 Euros today.

    I've yet to find the 7D that impressive at higher ISO's, however i havn't really used it that much aboive 800.

    If you want high ISO ability they get a 5D2. My god are they good at high ISO.

    Unlevel - REJECT!

    Joking! That's exactly the kind of thing I want to see and it sure does look impressive. Thanks for making me want a 7D even more!

    Just for you Paul...sorry bout the large size but i think you will get the idea.
    ISO1600 with the 7D..think you can see even at a rez of 2000 it kicks arse...nowhere near as bad as zillions would have you believe and this is ISO1600...the full image cropped is 4700 across and simply superb in terms of noise control..

    Of course that's a great, clean image, but it's ISO 100 in perfect light; hardly fair circumstances to judge the performance of any camera. I want to see the results when things are seriously pushed to judge performance, not when they're ticking over!

    I think everyone raises some good points here..The Canon vs Nikon crap which flies all over is basically that..
    Both make great bodies and whichever route you go you will get great results. Canon seems to get the short end of the stick now where 4 years ago it was Nikon(in some respects deservedly) copped it.
    If i owned a 50D now id be casting a serious eye at the 7D as its far more capable and offers stellar image quality.
    I mean look at this...killer shot
    [photoid=6910325]
    Anyway i think we are all spoiled for choice and quality and given the price the 7D is a bargain and anyone with a 50D,40D etc looking to upgrade would be insane to not look at it seriously after they have ditched all the rubbish written about hi MP sensors being average..if in doubt look at the image above.

    Basically because that's what I tried properly first, I didn't really fiddle with Nikon until I had a couple of Canon bodies and lenses. Don't get me wrong, I love my Canon gear! I genuinely do, but I do hammer it and it's getting tired. I've just bought a 40D that had a new shutter fitted recently from a friend so effectively I have a fairly low usage camera which will hopefully last me a while, but I bought it because I don't have the money for a 7D and I just didn't want a 50D. I've heard of and seen too many cases where the 50D hasn't performed well on noise, and shooting what I do sticking at low ISO's isn't really an option. I want to be able to shoot at concerts at ISO 3200 without really worrying about it (like I can on my 30D) so I didn't like the idea of that particular camera. I also thought it was a totally unnecessary move by Canon from the 40D when other manufacturers were still being sensible about their pixel counts.

    So yeah, I haven't suddenly turned anti-Canon by any means. I'm not anti-anything (I hate all the Canon v Nikon bullshit as much as I hate the Airbus v Boeing bullshit), it's just that if Canon want to rearrange things in such a way then I'll maybe look into alternatives. If everyone is making the same moves then I'll stick with Canon. It's gonna be a while off before I do anything, at least until my 40D breaks or a lottery win comes along!

    Anyway, why the huge outcry at the thought of changing systems? It isn't exactly an alien concept; I've preferred the handling of Nikon cameras for years (there's your other "suspect" decision, Chris, and I'm not quite sure why you use the word "suspect"). I don't really see what's so difficult to understand about someone possibly thinking about changing systems.
    Oh ok, i thought you had a similar amount invested as James and I based on the amount of photography you seem to be doing. In that case then yes, the cost of change for you would be substantially less.

    There is no outcry about changing systems, i think Nikon offer a great system. However i think if you've spent time with Canon, bought Canon and use Canon to good effect then there really is no reason right now to change system, even based on ergonomics. I used the word suspect because you made the comment without backing it up with examples. Maybe it's because i read too many forums but i often hear someone criticize a system for reasons that can't be justified.

    I have to ask though Paul, if you have preferred the handling of Nikon's for years, then what made you buy Canon in the first place?
