Julian have you ever used a 5dmk2? It feels slow compared to a 7d.
I hope canon doesn't follow the trend of making 5dmk3 to look extremely plastic and digital looking files. You can see this going from a 5dc to a 5dmk2 and without a doubt more so in the 7d files.
I'm not too obsessed with the idea of a 5dmk3 until I see how the raw files manipulate. I can do everything I demand (my application) out of my 3 full frames.
Its handy having both crop and full frame. I'm kinda suprised you dont see a substantial difference in dynamic range in the 5dc . You should start analysing the skin tones you get with a 7D vs. 5dc. I've looked at your 7d files (websize) and theres a distinct look a 7d has.
When it comes to snapping photos of my kids I had equal keepers with my 1dmk3 and 5dmk2. The reliable Center focus (lousy outer focus points)is the limitation of owning a 5dc/5dmk2.
Man you love your 7d!! I tried it and I will not consider buying one for my uses after getting spoiled with the super consistant IQ I get from my 5dmk2. skin tones on the 5dc is very nice and have a totally different look. If you have an IPS panel you'll see much more differences between the 7d and 5dc and I'm not talking about dof either.
I'm a creature of habit. I'm just too accustomed to how the 7D works. Never held/used a 5D2 but I'd imagine it's pretty much similar to the 5Dc, granted there's MFA, better LCD, video, and more megapixels.
I don't have an IPS panel so maybe that's why I can't really tell the difference. So I got a quick question/experiment for you, since you brought up skin tones and what not. Here are 4 photos I took. Do the skin tones look different on your monitor? Enough where you can distinguish which images were taken with the 5Dc and which w/ the 7D?
These 4 photos were taken within minutes of one another as I did this experiment for fun, primarily for myself to see if I can see/feel that "FF magic". And I realized there's not that much difference *to me*. Don't take this as if I regret picking a 5Dc, since I am keeping it (1 of them) after all.
