Just curious. You seem to have adequate gear to perform most photographic functions. At least, the last thing I would think you would need is a new body. Maybe a different lens or lighting, but you have two fabulous cameras. Switching to a 1dII from a 7d is a huge downgrade. Switching to a 1dIII from a 7d is fairly lateral but a slight upgrade. Both offer different advantages.

I think your focus might be misplaced, or were you just joking?

remember hes the B&H of southern California, hes mostly into buying and sell used EQ and dabbles in actual shooting on his spare time.

To be honest, I don't really care about gear. I don't really get jelly unless its a M9 and Noct APSH. I get gear that suits my uses, if I wanted the best I wouldn't have Sigma or Tokina or the 50 1.2. Its more of a "don't lose money, free rental why not" sort of thing is why I switch stuff around every 2 weeks or so... max.

I have no issues with that.
I've used most of these cameras through work and associates so was merely commenting on the comparison if it would help you decide on a need to switch.

My comment about magic lanterns though was general confusion. Why would the availability of a magic lantern guide ever be involved in a purchase decision for cameras of this caliber?
Did I miss something in the rebel ML I glanced through? What do they offer for a specific camera other then beginner tips on funcionality?

I've been real happy with the IQ and it's just versatile enough. I shot almost all of a really poorly lit indoor show with it because I wasn't trusting the 50 f/1.4 (Canon sent me a return thing, but they want the camera and the lens.. idk if I'm gonna do it or not, the camera works perfectly with most of my other lenses)
You should just send it in. Otherwise, you'll have to sell it cheap since it's misfocusing.

And they want your camera sent in probably because they apparently will cailbrate lenses to a specific camera, so it's for the best. And who knows, maybe there is someting awry with your camera.

Its weird that I don't really shoot unless someone tells me to. I don't think I've ever just shot for no reason. Plus I don't usually upload to flickr, but I think I'll put some stuff up today when I get home. I shot some baseball on Friday, but I didn't really like the pictures. I do need more crap on there though.

I shoot too much it seems. I have way too much crap uploaded to my flickr (2400+ shots). I need to go through and cull some of the garbage.

It is weird -- you're 14 and sans car. Get out of the house, go walk around and make a day of shooting things you normally wouldn't.

Sometimes I wish I lived in like Chinatown. Would make it much easier.
