Lens or Mark 7d Camera

(1/2) > >>

tazdog:
I have a Mark d5 III and the longest lens that I have is the 70 - 200mm 2.8. I am being asked to shoot indoor sports Basketball and hockey. I would like to get 300mm, but could only afford the 300mm 4, not sure if that will be fast enough  and in mix low light conditions. Should I get the 300mm or get the 7d with the APC sensor which with the 70-200 2.8 give me the speed and 300+ distance?

Tks

Menace:
5d III + 300f4 will allow you to shoot with higher ISO to stop indoor action whilst 7d will give you slightly longer reach with 70-200 f2.8 ... interesting dilemma.

Personally, i'd go with the 7d combo esp with the 8fps.

Cheers

Are your photos for the web or for print?

Random Orbits:
Or you get a 1.4x to convert your 70-200 to 100-280 at f/4, which would be less expensive and might work better if you're not focal length limited.  For low light, the 5D III would give you an advantage in noise/shutter speed.
