Hello all. First post on the forum. I have been reading and searching though for a while. I am a hobbyist looking to upgrade my camera body (currently T2i). My primary use of the camera is shooting ice hockey and walking around during travel / holiday. So, I am looking for something with better / faster AF performance and tracking and reasonable / fixable low noise at high ISO. Most of my ice hockey shots are ISO 1600 - 3200. My first thought was a 7D, but given where we are in the product cycle, I think it would be more advantageous to wait. I figured I could get a used / cleaned 1D mark III for relatively equal price to a refurb 7D and then see in a about a half year if I want to upgrade to the 1D mark iv or a 7D mark II / 70D (whatever canon has plans for). I shoot a 70-200 2.8L for sports fyi.
Looking for advice from anyone with experience in shooting ice hockey particularly with 7D vs 1D3 vs 1D4 etc.
Thanks in advance.
Thats a good upgrade, As the 1D3 and 7D are similar in price. The 1D3 is a great cam, just make sure you don't get a body with bad AF though.
