If the 7d2 is gonna be announced soon, i guess this is aimed at the high megapickle full frame?

Wouldn't you want faster shutter speeds than these for handheld shooting? Not only for your own tiny movements holding the camera, but also the fact as pointed out -- these people are often crocked and moving as well?
As long as no-one from Melbourne steals my tips (and my business ) then here's how I shoot.
My equipment: T2i, 15-85mm lens, 580 exII (with stofen or Bounce card depending on venue)
this setup is fine for clubs, honestly, only full-frame could look better
Aperture: f/4.0 (but set larger for big groups)
ISO: anywhere between ISO 200-800 (big groups sometimes 1600)
Flash either on ETTL, but I mostly shoot manual flash 1/8 or 1/4, second curtain flash
obviously it depends on the venue, but these are the settings i use in most of the clubs,bars and pubs i work in/have worked in.
Sometimes exposures need to be fixed up in lightroom from using the flash on manual, but yeah, thats an easy job.
Thanks Timothy_Bruce... I forgot to mention, I am using a Stofen defuser, and have +2/3 EC dialled in... no FEC though.
I'd just like a way to shoot f4, without downgrading to an f4 lens... maybe I should look at the 17-40mm L for this reason? :S
I just recently finished shooting my first wedding with my 5d3 and I had 3 CF cards and thank God the camera has that second slot for an SD as well, despite changing cards before each separate event (pre, ceremony, etc) I still ran over during the ceremony and the 5D3 automatically switched over the the SD card otherwise I would have missed the bride and groom walking out as the ceremony concluded!!
This is the closest we got to a confirmation of the 6D's existence. Now we only have to see what the camera looks like next :-)
