Thanks everyone for you tips and advise. The reason I don't use my 5DIII is because it does not have the 1.6 reach that the 40D has. It does not matter what end of the field I am shooting from the girls always gravitate to the opposite side of the field, so I have to crop and crop…

I will dig out my 2x extender that I rarely use. I cannot remember if it will work with my 5DIII and 70-200 combo.

If you conclude that it works moderately well, your next purchase should probably be a 100-400 for your 5D.

I purchased a refurbished 7D from Adorama. I am having second thoughts  :-\ and may cancel the order and purchase a new 70D. Please advise on your experience in purchasing refurbished cameras.

The reason I purchased it was because I currently use a 40D for girls soccer and I hate it. It has really bad image quality (10MP) when I crop in on my shots.

I can't wait any longer for the 7DII. My daughter is a junior and will only play soccer for another year. I have no need for a crop frame beyond that. So my choices are to buy a cheap refurbished 7D or buy a new 70D.

Personally i would have gone for the 70D over a 7D it has more new features like wifi and tilty flippy touch screen
