EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Not sure which Canon body to get

For your application I would also recommend the 6D.  You can't beat full frame for what you plan to do.

Most dealers offer it as a kit with the 24-105 which gets you the lens at a real bargain price.  You could also hold off on the 17-40 and see if you find 24mm wide enough on the 6D.

Thanks, guys.

I was not looking to update my 1D4 with the 70D.  As I stated, my 5D3 has pretty much become my primary camera and the 1D4 has been relegated to backup mode.

I was just thinking of reducing the investment for a camera that will likely not see a lot of use.

I don't need the funds and was just trying to think like a practical person.  Not an easy task for me.  :)

He!!, the 1D4 doesn't owe me anything at this point.  I'll just hang on to it for sentimental reasons if nothing else.  I suspect that, as others have eluded to, I would not be happy with a 70D at this point in my life.

Happy shooting, guys.

I have used a 1D Mark IV since it was introduced as my primary body and have always loved it.  Mid last year, I acquired a 5D Mark III and over time have turned to it more and more, to the point that it has now pretty much become my primary body.  I simply love the files it produces.

I shoot primarily motocross during the spring and summer months and mostly birds and other wildlife during the off season.  In addition to that, I shoot pretty much what everyone else does such as landscapes and people.

I am now contemplating selling off the 1D Mark IV and replacing it with a crop body which I would use for backup.  I'm looking at the 70D as I have read good things about the camera.

Question..... is anyone aware of any particular issues reported related to that camera?

I would appreciate any input.

My 'Best Friend' and I were pretty much joined at the hip for many years and hunted up a lot of birds together.

We lost him a while back to cancer but he will be in my heart forever.



Thanks for looking.

:D

To be fair, I remember when Canon did NOT HAVE AN ISSUE with the 1D3, even though mine was included in a later recall to deal with some AF difficulties.  :D

A piece of foam pipe insulation split lengthwise down one side that I slide over the edge of my vehicle window.  It makes a great rest for long lenses when shooting from the vehicle.

I didn't see anywhere else to post this so.....

A good lesson for manufacturers who won't admit to product problems or deal with the issues properly.

I would have to factor in the cost of a divorce over and above the cost of the lens.   :P

The area around the front of the hot shoe also looks chewed up.

I'd run, not walk, away from this as fast as my legs would carry me.

Thanks a lot, folks.  Yes, owls are really extraordinary creatures and a pleasure to photograph when the opportunity is there.
