so my mother asked me today to find something special for my graduation (next week) and so she splurged on the 5DmkII kit w/ 24-105 from Amazon ($2850 shipped).
I'm wondering if I should sell the 7D? I love the camera, but my question is if I will miss any features that the 5D doesn't have? I don't need two camera bodies as I am not a wedding photographer, jounalist, etc... that need the security of a second body. When my 60D was stolen in Hawaii last year, my iPhone4 saved the rest of the trip even though I was cursing all the time at the fact that I had ZERO control over exposure, focus, focal length and everything else we all love our DSLR's for...but that's another story in itself.
My last camera was a 60D and was completely happy with the AF and quite honestly, I don't use any of the advanced AF features of the 7D other than center point AF, and I never shoot in burst. Given my shooting preferences, is the 5Dmk2's AF just like the 60D or is it the abysmal AF that everyone seems to complain about?
A good friened of mine who has the 5DmkII keeps telling me the AF is fine but can't back it up with a good explanation
