As for lenses, you probably already noticed that what was a tight framer on the crop is no longer tight on FF.  And UWA that were splendid on crops show their weak points on the expanded FF sensor... even so, 16-35II is a good zoom in the Canon lineup...not the sharpest mind you, but produces some great shots in the right hands. It is also one of those lenses that come into their own on the full frame. And oh, welcome to Full frame.


Thanks! Yes I have noticed this significantly with the 50 and 100's - I can use the latter inside!

The Canon 24-70 sounds much better than the Tammy based on others feedback, but is $600-800 more. If you had the choice... 5Dii and Canon 24-70, or 5Diii and Tam 24-70?

Lens first if you can wait to upgrade the body later.  Get a refurbed or used 5DII now and you won't lose much on trying to sell it later.  Prices for the 5D III went down to 2500 near Christmas.

Thanks for the responses! It's good to see what others experiences are in terms of upgrading or comparing 7D to 5Dii/iii. The crop vs ff is another discussion that can debate the advantages of both. My biggest concern is that my 7D may have had other issues based solely on the dramatic improvement in IQ and AF with the 5D, but that seems to be at least somewhat consistent with others.

Congrat...on 5D III purchase. Do yourself a fav. skip the Tammy, get the Canon 24-70 f2.8 II. You will not regret it...contrast is much better. So much sharper at f2.8. Not to mention Tammy has reversed zoom

The Canon 24-70 sounds much better than the Tammy based on others feedback, but is $600-800 more. If you had the choice... 5Dii and Canon 24-70, or 5Diii and Tam 24-70?

5D II + Canon 24-70 for now, save up $ then get 5D III for better AF system.
