Canon EOS 7D
Advantages: Amazing picture quality, quick controls and focus.
Disadvantages: Horrible flash.
I was torn between the Canon 7D and the Canon 5dMK2, I went for this in the end as I use more automatic modes so thought that the Canon 7D sounded perfect. It is very easy to learn how to use and turns out great quality pictures every time. It's very quick to switch between the different controls and modes. If there is a sudden change in the light then there is no problem quickly switching aperture levels or changing the iso. The automatic zoom is great and very fast so no magic moments will be missed!
It is quite heavy once you have your lens attached, and especially if you add the flash too but it's well balanced and you soon get used to it - once you're over the shock!
My only complaint is that the flash is absolutely horrible, I've never used a picture that was taken with the flash and have it set to never come on! I would strongly recommend getting a separate flash so that you have much more control over the light levels.
Summary: Great camera - but use a separate flash.
