The usual stuff form a camera released in 2009
. High ISO imaging stinks and please use me in good lighting.
It is a "good" camera in 2014 but is do to be put out to pasture so why buy five year old technology?
When I am on the field at a football game, a lot of "professionals" have 60D's, 30D's, etc. hanging off them. In the end, they are all good cameras but time moves on and the capability compared to current offerings starts to really show. It was not a knock on the 7D but an impartial look at it compared to today's cameras.
I own and use a 7D. It makes my 300mm ii L a beast and that is why I always will believe Canon will have a C sensor camera in the offering.
I would slap a DO NOT BUY label on it as it is time for an upgrade. If you are shooting sports in daylight, it is a good camera. I nit pick the AF system a bit but understand I compare it to a 5D iii.
I use a 7D to compliment a 5D iii to photograph football.
I can't believe you 7D is sucking up to your 5DIII. What does it say?
I shoot side by side with many pro sports photographers, and there are guys with 2-3 1DXs, but there are plenty of guys with a 7D as a primary or secondary camera.
I really doubt it's the right camera for Naish27, but it's a great camera.
