EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D - Worth Buying ???
« on: February 21, 2013, 12:31:18 AM »
I upgraded from the 7D to the 6D. The 7D is still great, but I needed high ISO performance for events, and the 6D does not disappoint.  In low light, it basically becomes a 1 point AF DSLR, but that one point grabs focus like a tractor beam  ;D. For my style, FF is the way to go.


What about the AF ???

@Alex
I know there is no point in upgrading from one crop to another ..
Only  tempting thing is the price which I am getting is great
in India 7D costs around $1600. So even I sell it after  1-2 yrs chances r that I will get more than what I am investing

Neuro always points that you don't need APS-C for the extra "reach" if you won't print big, because you can crop images from, say, your 5D3.


Will not print large but
I am bit skeptical on this part " you can crop images from, say, your 5D3."

How about a 5D II? You can pick one up now for £1200 at some places, and the rest of the money you were going to spend on 5D III you can get yourself a nice lens.

I love my 7D, I dont have a problem with noise performance. i think that problem manifests itself with people who try to crop images down to 1/4 frame and expect it to be noise free.


Actually if I am going Full frame  then I will try to go all the way  :)  --- As I mentioned in my last reply if every thing goes as per plan I can afford 5d MK3 (even 1DX) + good lens by 2013 2nd half   --- 
So I think it will be wise to pass on the MK2

Thanks all for the reply...

For all advising for the full frame --------

I need some boost from my Actual Job (Software Engineering)  for this   ;D --- hopefully something good will happen by mid of this year  :P


As per the Crop body ---

Seems like nobody is in the favor of 7D  ::)

---

I think best will wait for FF  -- and after that if needed and if 7D MK2 is in the market will go for that.

As per the lens part ---- My main target is 70-200 f2.8 is2 (again depends on the "boost" )
+  400 f5.6  [Don't to invest heavily on the super tele part] ----- and this lens is known for great image quality.

Want your advice on Canon 7d.

Currently I am having 600D and in future I have plans for full frame body [1DX if everything goes well  ;D or at least 5d MK3  :)]
But in-between is it worth buying 7D  if I am getting a good deal?  Like if I sell my 600D and buy a new 7D  then my effective investment for 7D will be less than $400.
Note:  Main area of photography fashion/product + some event/indoor and occasional Wild life.

My doubts are like what are the things I will gain in 7D – other than 
Better Focusing system           [+++]
High FPS                                  [++]
Great Build                               [ + ]

But will there be any diff in Image quality – or all of them use same type or sensor?
Actually I read somewhere that 600D sensor is slightly better than 7D.
+ BIG Concern --- WHAT ABOUT ISO PERFORMANCE   --- I have seen in reviews that even at ISO 800 the performance is below par.
•   ISO   [--]

So is it of any value to but 7D or continue with 600D till I save money for Full Frame.
Actually I want to keep a good crop body for occasional Wild Life photography even I buy the Full Frame in future.
