    i'd hold out a week or two if you'd be happy with one of those you'd likely want to check out sony's new alpha when its released (should be shipping around the 4th or july afaik).

    true but a bit harsh. r1 is kinda like a hybrid in between. i was thinking im not hardcore into photography and if i were just to buy one and not buy lenses perhaps the r1 has a better lens than the kit one with the kd. kit lenses are usually rubbish.

    that one camera guy wasnt happy that the new sony dslr doesnt have direct access to camera controls like ISO etc

    Don't get me wrong, theres nothing wrong with a point in shoot. If a DSLR was better for everybody, point and shoots would not exist. You really have to evaluate what your motive for buying the camera is. What do you plan on shooting? How much is your short term budget? What about your long term budget? Does the R1's advantages match up well with your needs versus the advantages the 7D offers?

    Yeah, they're both the same price. Which is better? In my opinion? The 7D. Which is better for YOU? I don't know because you have told us nothing about what we should be basing that analysis on.
