If it does get shipped, I have a few questions:
(1) weather sealing. It snows very badly here and I want to ensure that my experience is not spoiled. Are any add-ons available that can improve the sealing?
(2) lenses, since the lens I will have would be a 28-135 and I want to cover the whole 18-300 range, what lenses would you recommend?
(3) would SD cards work (or my old ones go to trash)? which CF card would you recommend?

The EOS-1N is used as a comparative model because it has better weather resistance than previous XXD EOS models, but not as much as the 1D series. The weather sealing on the 7D is superior to that of the 50D, and slightly better than that of the 5D Mark II. In addition to the various gaskets and seals, the fit of the body panels where they meet is much tighter than the 50D.
PS - if you're pre-ordering from Amazon, don't forget to first click through from our partner stores page to support us - thanks!
