Advantages: 8 fps, 19 AF points, built in wireless flash for slaves, build quality
Disadvantages: Not as sharp as the 5D mk2
The Canon 7D, Wow what A camera, I purchased the 7D because my 20D was getting a little old and I searched the Canon site for a suitable replacement, After looking at several cameras I wittled it down to 2 that were in my budget the 5D mk2 and the 7D and after alot of thought I went for the 7D as this suits my type of photography better as I believe the 5D mk2 is better suited for portrait work the 7D is by far better suited to sports and nature photography
If you are looking to shoot sport and nature then this is the camera for you with 8 frames per second you know your going to get all the action, lots of other features you will like for instance the built in wireless flash so you can use your Canon EX Flash's of the camera without having to buy the wireless connector, Also the 19 AF points is very nice
Other features like the live view mode is excellent and the level indicator (which looks like a flight simulation) is very handy, also the grid display you can use to help with the rule of thirds is very nifty, I could go on and on but if you are looking here and are looking to purchase the Canon 7D you will already have some knowladge of this type of camera and if you are looking to take photo's of sport, aircarft, wildlife then this camera will do the job with ease and give you great results, If you are new to Digital SLR's then be warned that there are no presettings and you will need some knowladge of how to use a digital SLR to get the most from it.
Summary: For sports, wildlife, aircraft etc its awesome
