Title: Ideal choice for second body?
Post by: ck5dmkiii on October 06, 2012, 12:25:30 AM
Hey everyone! I am on the hunt for a second body and I am unsure of what will be the best for the money. I currently shoot a 5DMK3 and have a 40D as a second/spare. I shoot weddings 99% of the time. Here are my options I am looking into:

1DMKIII
5DMKII
7D
Possibly a 60D since they are dirt cheap :-\

Im really leaning towards the 1DMKIII but I would like everyones input as well before making the decision. Thanks!

Personally, I'd suggest the 1d mk3 unless you need that extra reach of 7d  :)

Likewise. As great of IQ the 5d2 can give, either 7D or 1d3, preferably the 1d3 which I'm betting will give you better IQ and much better overall ergonomics and AF.

1D mk III, isn't that the one with a APS-H sensor and 8 frames per second? Do you need speed in a wedding? and do you need the crop for anything that a 70-200 cannot cover? Given your list, I would actually opt for a used 1Ds MK III. It is an awsome camera, and was the flagship camera for full frame until the 1Dx was released.
