Hey guys. Long time no seeee

Looking into either a 5D2 or 1D3 this summer thumb.gif Not really interested in the 10 fps or the video but I would love a camera that can take a beating and can track should I ever need it in my shooting.

Well the 5D2 is terrible at tracking (AI Servo) so I might suggest the 7D, as it is also weather sealed, can take a beating and track very well.

How much experience do you have shooting servo on a 5D2? rolleyes.gif

Not much.

I'm not the only person who will tell you the ancient AF system in the 5D2 sucks at tracking also.

it sucks at tracking professional athletes at high speeds and thats about it. just about everything else it has no trouble with. im yet to hear anyone other than a sports shooter say that the 5D2 doesnt do the job. its AF system may be old but it works for everyone that is using it wink.gif

7D is great at tracking but being a crop camera is its downfall. if you care about quality and want a great affordable FF camera the 5D2 is by far a better choice

The center point is usable for servo tracking. Would I pick it for sports? Probably not -- and if you're mainly shooting daytime sports or at night with good lighting, the 1DIII is a better choice than the 7D, by a long shot.


Anyway, OBABO sent me my tax refund today, so the Fuji is en route. Now, to order a stupid amount of 120/220 for vacation.

The 5DII doesn't too bad at the track actually, but you have to get a feel for it. For other sports it doesn't fair as well.

Coincidentally there's some rumors that indicate the 7D may be getting a major firmware update long before it gets a refresh / update. The buzz is video updates primarily. I wonder if they're going to incorporate some features from Magic Lantern.

5DII has no flaws. Only people who say it sucks shouldn't be taking pictures.
