looking to buy a new camera

with my found wealth called tax money burning a hole in my pocket I was looking at the cannons , now I don't know shit about these things other than they seem very complex to use and lenses are mad spendy but, lens are important in the niceness of a photo..

I plan on using this to take photos of boats on the water , on a few larger coastal streams , rain may be a factor ..
and a class may also be needed to get this thing dialed in

Go for the 7D. I would, if I hadn't spent my money on a boat.

no way, you take pictures of boats on water too??
i don't know shit about other camera's besides the one's i own, which are nikon's, but i will say this: spend more money on yer glass than the camera, and just skim over the instruction booklet and start pushing the shutter. good glass can last a lifetime and a new digital camera now is almost obsolete in five years or less. buy fast, prime lenses and use your feet to zoom. so hopefully that helps, and if not, stick to the point and shoots and buy a boat like the ditch.

7d is very nice. If you really got fat, get a 5d and some L lenses.

All of those cameras will take really nice pictures. Spending less on camera and more on lenses is not a bad way to go. There are some nice 3rd party lenses available as well.

Not a thing wrong with Nikon crop sensor cameras either.
