Under almost all shooting conditions (including dark environments) this phenomenon will not affect your captured images, from: Canon USA.

Your Sigma 10-22mm wide angle lens will not work on 5D.

It would be great, if you had a chance to try each for a day or two .

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

KOT has a point. Why not rent one then the other for a few days or a week each so you can try them for yourself.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

I'm going to have to check if there is somewhere near me where I could rent cameras. I know it would be the way to go. Thanks.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

There is a saying, "Once you go to Full Frame you will never look back". I own a 40D and a 5D and when I go out the door I almost always grab the 5D. The "... almost" is when I am going out whale watching or shooting birds in flight. However when/if I get another 300mm f4 IS I will use it with a 1.4xTC on the 5D especially for the whales. For BIF I will still use the 40D. Now I have the original 5D not the 5DII. The 5DII is a better camera than what I have but I prefer the simplicity of the 5D. (simple mind )

With any of the 5D series you will get better results at higher ISOs, cleaner images out of the camera, easier processing, and outstanding detail. The 5DII as well as the 7D have a better LCD than my camera and both have more fps. The view through the view finder is much brighter with the full frame camera. The colors blend together better, in the case of things like flesh tones where there is a gradual change of color, and they can be made into larger prints without having to do special work by increasing file size. When using RAW and ACR your image processing may not require any other work in photoshop. This happens often for me. I also like the feel of the camera in my hand over the 20D and 40D. It feels more like a camera should. But then I had come from a fairly heavy 35mm film camera.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D




This is a 100% crop. The original photo of the entire boat covered 3/4 the width of the frame. Notice the Red Cross on the first aid box inside the boat door. Photo taken using a 70-200 f4L IS @180mm.

I would post the original photo but I haven't figured out how to post more than one photo in a thread.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

Thanks all for your comments and advice. I think I'll be going to town on Saturday to have a look and feel of the cameras.

If you could swing it I'd think about a 5D MK III to be honest, best of both worlds. Incredible AF and full frame goodness.
Yup it's terrible, complete rubbish, as a matter of fact everyone that has one should just pitch it in the bin.

Someone should tell these guys.

All these are from the Flickr 5DII group and searched for sports. It may not be the fastest focusing body out there, but like any other piece of kit you need to know how to use it properly to get the desired results.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

Hey Christian

I own both a 7D and a 5D MKII, fairly certain I'm sure of the capabilities. 5D MK II produces lovely files but I'm not grabbing it when I go shoot what I like to shoot.

There are some rebates right now but nothing fantastic.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

I actually ordered the 7D the other day, and can't wait to get it. I just couldn't afford the 5D MKIII.

Re: 5DMkII or 7D

Good luck with your choice of the 7D! I'm sure you will really enjoy it.

Don't forget to post as soon as you can.
