One thing to keep in mind for car shows are CPLs. It helps with reflections and if you have a tripod with you, then take a few shots. So as to combine the shots and keep the reflections away off of certain areas.

My camera is just the same. Me and my moms boyfriend bought our D300 at the same time, mine have done about 50k actuations and my moms boyfriend have done max 5k. His looks brand new and mine is just as you say, smooth and really shiny.

Here's a little comparison between the two cameras.



Mine is, ehm to the right.

It actually looks ok to me too. Noise patterns are way different on the 5D versus the 7D. The 7D's pixels are much smaller (relatively) so the noise "grain" is tiny, making it less apparent when not viewing at 100%, not to mention that the 7D handles noise at least as well as the 5D. The 5D has such an awesome low pixel density that the photo sites are really large, allowing for excellent DR as mz said.

I think that lots of detail with some noise is better than smoothed-over shots with PP NR.

And frankly, I found noise at low ISO's to be pretty bad on the 7D; even at ISO 200 I would see distinct maize patterns in full light daylight.

What did you find wrong with the Elan 7? I ask because I've been eyeing one for sale at my camera shop, mostly for the novelty of it, but partially because I have no Canon film body (and can't spend the money on a pro film body).

Time to bite the bullet, get Paypal & eBay accounts, and bid on that lens. You're really cutting yourself out of the vast majority of online used gear by dealing in cash only. It sucks, but it's the nature of the beast.

That lens listing will either sell barely for $400 (or lower), or a huge bidding war will break out in the last 10 min. and it will go for close to $500 (the latter is very likely as I all I see otherwise are Buy It Now only listings).

19mm? Come on, it goes to 10mm! I loved shooting that lens at 10mm. Canon should make an EF-S 10mm f/2.8 prime (yeah right).

The rubber grip came off after about 3 years of use, i tried to glue back on, but it came loose again after a short period, i even think it was ducttaped for a while. But it have been used very well under sometimes hard conditions, especially in the winter time, i could spend 5 hours every day day at the local ski hill and it's -10 degrees fahrenheit.

One of the few things Nikon offers is ADL which in some cases can be helpful. I've claimed some keepers with ADL set to normal that I couldn't save with ADL off and PP.

Just say'n.

There's nothing really wrong with the elan7. Sure the af isnt the best but the biggest problem i have is my lack of eos glass. I could borrow the glass but it just makes it more complicated.

Also of you get the elan make sure you get a grip. The body only takes cr123 so it gets expensive to shoot.

Ok, so it looks like i will try to get a D5100 and another lens. If i go through B&H i can get $150 off a bundle of the D5100 + 55-300MM, or $100 off a bundle with the D5100 + 55-200MM. Ive read that the 55-300 has slightly better IQ, is that true? Which one should i go for?
