I had a look. I did not like the author of the poll's condescending remarks about sony and market share.

"Below $2000" is a ridiculous category.

Agreed. Should be sub-$1000 as one category and $1000-$2000 as another. Even then, the latter category will sport a huge degree of variance.

"I'm in the market for a digital camera. I'd like to spend around $300. Or $1999. Whichever."

Holy crap I didn't know the Canon 7D was below 2 grand! I thought it would be at least three! Maybe it is lower price because of the smaller sensor. In any case, I thought the name Canon would equate to 'overpriced'.

Just watched the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cFS83r3c3U and learned that the 7D has built in radio transmitter just like I have been wanting in pentax FOREVER....

You mean, like the one even my old Pentax MZ-6 had? It's not radio, though (the 7D is also not a radio transmitter). It's a first for Canon, but the others had this for ages.
That video is ridiculous, the guy is trying hard to sell the 7D but guess what, he haven't done his homework. The K-7 is better sealed. The K-7 and D300 also have 100% viewfinders. The K-7 was the first APS-C camera to include an electronic level (and it will not only show, but also correct tilts). But who cares, he must prove it's better than the D300s...

He just made some condescending remarks that were not necesarily grounded 100% in reality. Then he compounded that ill thought out remark with an even more petty reponse to my observations.....he apparently doesn't have to consider anything he doesn't WANT to....sounds like something a 5 year old might say.
