5D2 for what you do if you are thinking about going FF. Mind you with a couple of other lenses you can do very well with the 7D. I had a Tokina 11-16 which is a very sharp corner corner lens. The Canon 85 1.8 is a inexpensive and excellent portrait lens.   

I have both the 7D and 5D3 (had 5D2) and you can't been the IQ you get out of a FF but I can't imagine giving up either. I also shoot sports and wildlife (birding) so each body has it's place.           

Tokina @ 11mm

Are you comparing apples to to oranges? Is the auto in camera NR and in DPP off? Is sharpening in DPP off? Are LR NR and sharpening sliders at zero?

Yes start off with DPP.  Then I would suggest to take a serious look at LR if you are doing mass edits.

Module 5 starts with what are raw images. Good to go through it all but 1 to 4 talk about what is new in DPP. If you have not used it then you may find it confusing.

It is legit. Happened to a member at POTN and was raked through the coals but came out clean.

Nice work.

Just curious why you choose 3200 for portraits? That is my preferred setting for my 5D3 and like you will go higher but that is for dark venues while run and gun shooting.

If I set up a couple of lights I shoot at 400. I may have misread what yo mean by portraits.         

Oh, by portrait I generally meant single subjects even if lighting isn't controlled. So that includes dark locations where 3200 might still be needed. If lighting is an option, I agree with 400. Great quality at those ISO levels!

That was what I thought. Just wanted to clarify. .

I doubt the frequencies are the same. I do know this. You can put a transmitter into a Sekonic flash meter that will work with PW and fire a flash when a PW receiver/transmitter is attached to the flash. Sorry don't know what the mini or flex actually do so I just called it receiver/transmitter.  The Sekonic won't fire the 600.

I contacted Sekonic to see if they were ever planning to develop a transmitter that would fire a 600 and they said no. They are partners with PW. So if the Sekonic and PW are on their own frequencies as opposed to Canons then as I said I doubt it will work.

If you scroll down to the 4th and 5th images you can see the difference masking makes.
