EOS Bodies / Re: Should I get 7D now or wait for MKII?
« on: August 01, 2012, 01:54:11 AM »
So far the 7D is what I expected and more! I'm very happy with my 7D!! For now I went with the 18-135 kit.

Looking on getting a 24-105 L or a 17-55 later on this year. and a couple more lenses later don't the road.

Thanks again for all the advices and suggestions guys!! Very much appreciated!!  ;D

I'll post up some shots of it after I get back from my Dallas trip this weekend. :D

I'm happy with my 7D.  I had bought the 5DMKII and returned it (wasn't for me).  I still plan on upgrading to full frame eventually, but in the interim my kit keeps me going.

For traveling, I get by with the 7D, 24-105 and the 10-22.  I can fit them all in a relatively small bag.  The 24-105 is used most often (say 80%) and the 10-22 the rest of the time.

I have a 70-200 2.8 (non IS) for the telephoto stuff.  I don't do too much of that since the lens is really big and heavy and I don't much care for lugging it around with everything else when you are out on your feet for 8-10 hours. 

I have a 50 1.4 (never use it but it is a staple) and just bought the 40mm which I still haven't tried yet.

The one nice advantage though of say, getting a 5DMKII is getting it with the 24-105 and, at least for me, that would do me for 90% of the type of shots I would take and would save having to carry around an additional lens.

do you loose something by using the L lens on a crop body?

the lenses you have are the same lenses I plan on having down the road! :D

Hey guys! I'm new to this forum and new to Photography. I've always loved taking pictures of landscape,cars,people, and just random stuff. Lol So I decided that it's time for me to grab a decent DSLR.

I'm completely new to DSLR's and photography. Still doing a lot of reading and learning on which camera I should go with. Based on the stuff I've read and learned I'm leaning towards getting the 7D. But I'm concerned that when I get the 7D now couple of months later down the road the new rumored 7D MKII comes out.

So my question is should I wait for the 7D MKII (why?) or I should just get the 7D?

There is no guarantee from Canon that there will even be a 7DmkII - nobody really knows.  It is also anyone's guess when Canon plans to introduce a new APS-C sensor.

What would interest me is why you particularly want the 7D?  If you don't have specific needs to shoot sports or to use the camera in an environment where a sealed body and lenses are needed, you could look at a 60D, which has the same sensor, or even a 650D.  I would possibly rather put the difference in price between the 7D and the 60D into a good lens, which will possibly yield a better return than a higher end body.

The reason I want the 7D over the 60D/650D is because of its weather sealing and also its faster. My family travels a lot thats why I want the rigid and weather sealed body of the 7D.

The things I want to take pictures of are landscape, fast moving things (cars going around the track), and just random stuff. lol its mostly going to be cars and landscape.

As far as Lenses go I'm not quite sure of what I need for the stuff I want to shoot. I do plan on upgrading to a 5D later on just not sure when tho.

Then by all means, The 7D is the body for you then as the MK2's AF isn't quite as good. Just pick up a 10-22mm as well. A very good lens.

I plan on buying that lens also the 17-55.

or should I be getting L lenses instead? I do plan on upgrading later on on a 5D body but not for the next 2 yrs. or so.

I'd get the 10-22mm + 24-70L. This because you wont overlap focal lengths and when you switch you'll have the 24-70L ready.

Personally, I'd get a 50mm 1.4 and a 100mm f/2 as well.

I want the 24-70L but its damm to expensive!!

The lens I plan on having are 10-22 (or maybe 16-35L?), 24-105L (or 17-55?), 50mm, and 70-200L.
