Wow lots of 7D bashing going on. I disagree, the crop body has a place in my bag for weddings. I pretty much shot an entire wedding with the 7D & 17-55 and 5D2 & 135L. Of course theh 5D combo rocked it but you know what the 7D was no slouch! (And when the bride wants a shot of 11 people jumping in the air - 8fps makes it a cake walk) AF is crucial at a wedding and your subject is rarely in the center. And if it is then your shots will look crappy and average.Agreed, the 7d is still a relevant body and it has been the APS-C flagship for Canon since it's inception. It's still relevant and I think will remain so, until the 7D MkII is announced and makes it way into camera bags across the globe...QuoteNow, my point is not to go out and buy a 7D but that AF is important and if you are choosing a camera for weddings, the the 5D3 is the clear choice. You have the speed, the IQ and the higher res file for cropping. There will be cropping!
Oh and when you go from indoors to outdoors in 1second. Good luck changing your WB on the 6D.
I think a lot of current 7d owners want the new one, just because the original is such a great camera! They may be thinking that if this one is this good, how much greater is the next one going to be, especially after the number of years it's been holding it's own.
I used my 7D in weddings and it got the job done but I can't honestly say it "rocked". But it got me through... often times with a lot of work in post with regard to the noise in the shadows and darker areas. It's high iso usage is limited at best, especially compared to the 5d MkIII.
