While the 18-megapixel APS-C (1.6x crop) CMOS sensor is an upgrade of 3-megapixels over the 50D, the Canon 7D is more akin to the pro-level 5D Mark II in terms of its features and build. A new autofocus system consisting of 19 cross-type points will likely be welcomed by most shooters. Additionally, Canon has addressed the cries of many aspiring filmmakers by including several frame rate options, including 1080p recording at 24fps.
The Canon 7D is likely to become known as the pro-level crop-sensor camera in Canon’s lineup.
