Goodbye, 7-year-old Xti. Thanks for all the teaching, but I think I've outgrown you.

I'll be literally doubling every capability -- 10.1 to 20.2 mp, 1/4000 to 1/8000 shutter, 3 fps to 7 fps, 1600 ISO to 12,800 ISO (may not mean much for pretty pics, but it sure does for identifying wildlife in a dark forest), 9-pt. AF to 19-pt. AF, etc.

</dance>

Congrats, Lenny! I upgraded last year, so I know that feeling.

Mmmm, nice. I am torn between the 7D and a 5D (the 6D is out for many reasons, not the least of which is the lack of high speed sync). I will likely wait until I can afford the 5D, or buy used.

Still, I used the 7D not long ago and fell in love with it.

Uh, yes it does. Where your xTi likely had an unacceptable level of noise by 1250, your new 70D should be clean and crisp well past 1600, probably acceptable to 3200.

Due to the medical bills killing my 6D plans, I've been thinking about the 70D; was waiting for the Pop Pho stats (next month), but I'll surely be interested in seeing some sample pics, if you'll post them....
