i see the 7d II on amazon now for 1125? is it safe to purchase a body from amazon?
at 1125, its almost half the price of the best price i've seen for 5dIII, of 2100....
this definitely factors in here...
deciding between these 2 has been terribly difficult... clearly I would have bought a 7dII a long time ago however these 2 things just stick out so much, for indoor low light basketball....
the cleaner shots at higher ISO
and the much better focal range.
Maybe I'm overthinking these 2 as so many of you seem to have great results with the7dII even in similar terribly lit gyms... I suppose as long as the 7dII, and it's great autofocus, captures a focused shot (and the 10 FPs must help this too), can't noise be removed to match the results of the same shot taken with a 5dIII? not sure if that makes any sense or not. what I'm asking is with my very poor PP skills, can I take a shot at higher ISO and more noise, and PP it to remove the noise to look and have the same detail and results as the same shot taken with a 5dIII?
then there is the focal range.. just seems to be so much better to have a true 70-200 when most of my shots are in the 50-85MM range, which both fall into the 5d's true 70-200 range, as that 50-85MM range on crop is essentially the equivalent of 80-136MM? In real world will this eliminate the need for the 24-70 and switching mid game? Guess I'm just looking for advice from you that have used both... on paper this makes a lot of sense as I wouldn't need to take the 70-200 off unless I wanted really wide shots but even under the basket I looked back at many of my photos and I don't see too many going below 50 (which would be equal to 80 on FF).. it would give me the ability to goto what I now see at 43MM on the low end on a FF... just so hard to quantify if this really makes a big difference..
lastly is the autofocus.. is the 5d's autofocus in low light, on moving subjects, really as good as the 7dII's?
this is such a hard decision that I can't make still LOL
