Lol, nope, not for someone who likes canon it isn't, which is an awful lot of people. Personally I'd chuck the 7D aside if somone got me, lets say, a new canon 5D and a few decent lenses? Maybe once I have a proper
job I'll splash out on a really amazing camera, unless I suddenly get married, have six kids and ruin my life.
That really amazing camera could be a 9D or it's future children?
I take it your dad is a canon man. I can picture the rows.
