The Bottom Line An overall excellent camera, but one that fails to capture the best-in-class prize for image quality. An excellent midrange dSLR, the Canon EOS 7D delivers for the money. An excellent dSLR for experienced shooters or Nikon professionals looking for a relatively cheap option, the Nikon D7000 delivers on almost all counts, including the company's best shooting design to date.
