I don't think you can buy a better quality camera for the money. I have been shooting sports, alongside another photographer that has a 6,000 dollar Nikon Body. There is very little that his camera can do that this one can't. At 9 frames per second, it more than quick enough. The only drawback is the smaller sensor. When I bought the camera, I was choosing between the 7D and 5D. I shoot more sports, so the frames per second mattered to me. I used to be a landscape photographer when I was shooting film. Landscapes and portraiture aren't the same with the smaller sensor. Your wide angle lens now becomes a normal lens, causing you to loose depth of field. I am looking and waiting to buy the 5 D Mark II, hopefully the Mark III will bring the price down. They are both very good cameras, but I think each has it's specialty.

I love this camera so much I have two! I'm a freelance photographer part time and shoot high school sports and local events this camera gives you about eight frames per second, and is fantastic, use with a fast 2.8 lens and you can shoot indoor sports like Basketball or Volleyball. I also use this camera with a fast 600X write speed memory card so there is very little delay between shots.
