I like the 7D. I think its best feature is the "Q screen", which allows me to change any setting quite easily.
It is hard to bring out the feather detail when photographing large, dark birds like eagles in good light, and very difficult to bring it out in the lousy light I often find up here. The Q screen allows me to experiment with aperature/shutter speed/ISO settings easliy.
The main drawback I find is trying to hold focus on flying birds. The "AI Focus" autofocus feature is supposed to do this, but you can tell from some of my photos that it has not. I am not above admitting that it may be operator error.
