The new Canon 7D specs are really nice,
- APC-S 18mpixel Sensor, 8fps (thanx to the two Digic 4 processors inside),
- full HD videos,
- 100% Viewfinder,
- 63 Zone dual layer metering sensor,
- Magnesium Body
- full specs here
… Side by side with the Canon 5D Canon these two cameras will kill Nikon if it wont answer really soon.
Nikon Competitors? No for now.
The D300s add so less to the D300 that is not worth.
Thinking that Canon 7D and Nikon D300s have the same price i’ll buy again a Nikon only if my Nikon lenses are really expensive and i don’t want to sell them (my dear Tokina 11-16 is going probably) !
The only doubt is about that pixel density on the sensor, comparing to 12Mpixels Cameras (Nikon models) and the 21 MPixels of the Canon 5DMK2 which is also full size.
Price? About 1400 Euros (1700 Dollars), about half a Canon 5DMk2.
My new Camera? Probably…
