5D mark III or 7D and 5D mark II

(1/5) > >>

vlim:
I'm looking to upgrade my photo gear for wildlife photography. Would you buy a 5D mark III to complete my 40D or for the almost same price buy a 7D and 5D mark II (and sell my 40D) ?

Low light situations in european and tropical forests are the places where i'll take my pictures...

neuroanatomist:
5DIII. Much better high ISO, better AF, and will soon be able to autofocus with an f/8 TC combo.

vlim:
Thanks ! i really hope a new 100-400 4-5.6 IS (as good as his little bro' the 70-300 4-5.6 IS) or 400 5.6 IS or 300 4 IS II will be announced in the upcoming months...

Because i have a little doubt about how a 5D mark III will work with the actual and old 400 5.6.

I think it would work very well, actually.  The shot below is with the 'old' 100-400mm, with a 1.4xIII on the 1D X (560mm, 1/320 s, f/8, ISO 5000).  The 400/5.6 would take the extender a little better, although IS does help a bit...

vlim:
Thanks for the sample ! It works very well ;)

Initially i was thinking about the great, sharp and light 300 f4 L IS but i think it'll be too short coupled with a FF for wildlife photography :(
