Canon EOS-7D

I just took delivery of this–Canon’s top-of-the-line APS-C format camera.  Although the EOS-60D served me well over the past two years, it is not as effective at capturing action shots as the 7D.  The latter has much more in the way of autofocus options, including: 19 autofocus points (compared with 9 on the 60D), greater autofocus speed and points selection, and lens calibration. The 7D also has a burst rate of 8.3 compared with 5.3 on the 60D. Other key features include a weather and dust resistant magnesium body, and CF disk for recording images.  Since the APS-C sensor is the same as the 60D, there will be little or no difference in still image quality.

If you have been shooting with this model I would appreciate hearing about your experience.
