Yes, if consider the features and performance per cost, 7D is the choice. I am happy with it.

Beautiful image, I gave this a 7 during voting (the red border mainly). The video is very good, mostly like a 'moving photograph' - beautiful place, thanks for sharing it. Congratulations on the rib1.gif.

Wow beautiful shot! Generally I get a lot of noise when I shoot with anything more than say 400 ISO. Well done!

Fantastic shot indeed. I love how your processing looks natural, and how it shows the beauty of the scenery. Congrats on this well deserved ribbon :-)

I'm sure this will hit all the the right buttons with a lot of people. A bit too 'fantasy art' for my taste but the quality of the execution is amazing.

Winner! I don't even need to look through the rest. Looks like a signature DrAchoo border (see Pacific Daybreak). :)
