Yeah I stopped caring about the condition of the 5DII a while back and now I'm on a mission to make it ugly through use. Paint missing near the delete button, DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE FROM.

I've owned and used both cameras for sports/birding/etc and the 5D II does ok with center AF and a f/2.8 lens. The 7D is very capable for sports in the right hands if you customize the AF modes effectively (which is ridiculously complicated).

How terrible is the 1D3's high ISO in comparison to the 5D2?

Has anyone been tempted by the xPro1? I know there aren't any X100 shooters here but the xpro with a M-mount adapter, voigtlander glass (cause its cheap, duh) and an update with peaking would be fun. Albeit overpriced.

Why do people put down crop cameras so much? A 7D can take sports shots on par with a 5DII any day unless you want to start printing big. I would think most sports shots would usually max out at about 8x10 if purchased by someone and so many shots these days end up living their life online at 800x600 or 1024x768.

I shot a race recently where we were alll asked to take our file size down a notch. The proofs were posted online and he only offered up to 8x10, said he never sold anything bigger. The number one seller was a "Facebook special" digital image that was 800x600 or whatever Facebook is at now.

He's probably referring to the 7D's insanely dense pixel count, which results in visible noise even at low ISOs, although I recall it's high ISO noise being fairly decent. Anyone shooting sports using Canon in all likelihood does use crop as the 1D series are APS-H (unlike the 1Ds and 1DX), not to mention the fact that many use xxD series cameras as backups.

I've been considering doing some extensive testing with medium and small size raw files out of the 7D to see if noise is handled better or worse. My initial (real world) test indicates no visible benefit in shooting smaller raw files (other than getting more files on a card). I may put that off, I need to work on my posing, three weeks till my first wedding as a primary.

Oh, damn. I've been neglecting my reviews. I think I was asked to do the 35L next...

You could always pass that 35L this way and I'll ghost write the review for you biggrin.gif You know, so you can focus on more important things tongue.gif

Nah, my reviews are bad enough, I dont want to trust someone else to produce the lack of quality I can output, I have a reputation to uphold after all!

Also, dont fret too much about loss of value. It's about on par with things like the 70-200 f/2.8L non-IS ($1450 out the door BNIB, resale is usually under $1000). While CLP has them for $1407 (the 5D2 that is), they actually have to have them in stock to sell for that price. Used will still be worth more than refurb merely because they're actually available (until the point where the market gets so saturated that the price adjusts downwards).
