EOS Bodies / Re: on the verge of buying, just need some final moral support

Jimmy!, I just went to FF after a couple nice crop bodies.  It was also a lot of funds for me...lost a bit of sleep and had some buyers remorse,...until I looked at some of its images.  There is just something about a FF image!  I have no regrets,..have fun!

Funny thread!,...I really like mine,..AE-Program! My first SLR! I was 13 years old. I still have it and it still works.

Lenses / Lens Help..EF 28mm f1.8 any good?

Hello,…always looking for people’s opinions, especially when it comes to buying new gear.
For a long time I have had an itch to pick up a Canon 24mm f1.4L II for my FF, but it is a pricey one.  I would like to do some static star shots and trails also, as well as have a nice fast wide prime for indoor and landscape.  Until the funds materialize,does anyone have any positive experiences with the 28mm f1.8?

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D to 5D Mk III - Pull the trigger?

I have been shooting with the 7D since late 2010. In October 2012 I bought the 5D MK III.
I will sell my 7D but......buy (if specs are ok for me) the 7D MK II. Why? I need the 8fps and crop 1.6 for sports and BIF. I do not have the budget for long focal length primes. So shooting sports with my 5D MK III and my 70-200 f/2.8 MK II does not give me enough great close-up shots.

But buying a 5D MK III was one of my best purchases. I love this camera for; build quality, quality IQ, ISO, AF and silent shutter

For me (with a relatively tight budget), the combo 7D and 5D MK III is the best
Agreed! +1

I always think the Canon 50mm 1.4 is a great lens in your bag, and one to do a lot of photographic exercises and one to learn from.  But,.. I have to agree with Neuro with 24-105mm f4L.  I have one and use it quite a lot on my FF,..very versatile and great all around lens.

The 7D is a very nice camera that will serve you well.  I have had mine for about 2.5 years and have enjoyed it.  I have however, on several occasions been very annoyed by its noise and banding (especially with some landscape shots) at ISO 100.  Now,..I am an enthusiast and an amateur who very much enjoys his hobby,…but I honestly at times do a good amount of pixel peeping, when I shouldn’t be pixel peeping.  I love the ergonomics and functionality of the camera, and the FPS and reach of the crop are very nice when you need it.  I recently upgraded to a 5D III and the IQ is far superior.  Some people might say this is a lame comment, but as some other posters have said,..there is just something about a FF image,…there is…  The current prices that we have seen for a new 7D body are interesting,…looks like a replacement is coming soon,..so as another poster said,..a used body or a refurbished one may be a good choice..

Mmm,…this is a great thread that most likely many of us can relate.  I myself have purchased professional level gear over the past year,….makes me sit back and think if this is practical….but we all enjoy our profession/hobby.  Just my 2 cents,…my opinion,….sell everything except the 5D III.  Keep the 5D III, it’s a great camera and will serve you well for many years.  Next, save the cash and get a 50 f 1.4 and use this exclusively for maybe 6-12 months just as a photography exercise.  Re-evaluate in year and see what direction to go….

Has anyone else had any problems with their 400 series cf cards??
