So the last several weeks went like this:
Sold 600D and a 24-105L. Got a 5D3. Got a new 70-200/2.8L (non-IS). Missed the 24-105, so decided to but the 24-70/2.8II. Sold the 70-200/2.8L by thinking that a 135/2 will be much better. Bought 24-70/2.8II. Tested some 135/2 - not long enough, bought a used 70-200/2.8L (mine was already sold) in a so-so condition. Decided to get a used 7D as a second body an bought one (today). I burned about 200$ with all those bad decisions on the 70-200 - lesson learned.
Now my setup is 5D3 + 24-70/2.8II and 7D + 70-200/2.8 and I will be testing it out over the weekend at several gigs.
Some people say this setup is amazingly stupid, some say it's the best for any kind of shooting. I would like to hear your takes on this. One thing I know so far - it's heavy (I am 67kg, 180cm).
The second thing i realized that the 7D's ISO is "crappy", the AF is slow (in low light) and it feels like a toy - the whole sentence only, if you compare it to the 5D3 side by side (what a surprise /sarcasm).
So, since I've got some free time tonight I decided to make a short comparison between the two bodies, lenses (at 70mm) and also compare the 50/1.8 that I have lying around with the 24-70/2.8II at 50 mil. Since I didn't have a model (lying around) I used a bottle of shampoo in my bathroom.
Distance: 1,5m (24-70) - 1,7m (70-200) in order to get the same frame. Sharpness set to Canon default (3).
Tripod & 10sec timer. Each frame repeated 3 times.
I let you decide if the 7D can compete against the 5D3 in terms of sharpness, quality etc - it seems that my 24-70 needs some AFMA adjustment, LV is sharper then PF @50mm - am I seeing this correctly?result
