Re: New Canon 7D firmware; SUBSTANTIAL improvements

The facts remain the 7D has an awful AF system, terrible high ISO performance and its DR is beaten by camera that cost half its price, on a APS-C.
The AF system is fantastic. It's not as good as other cameras, but it's also three years old (at release).
The high ISO performance was great when it was released. Again, eclipsed by newer technology. Same deal with the dynamic range.
The one thing you should have mentioned, but didn't is the bullshit banding in shadows and relatively high noise in low ISO (100, 200) images.
Not a perfect camera, but certainly not shit.
