i only upgraded because i needed cleaner images at ISO 3200 and needed to go beyond that at times. otherwise i would have saved the money and kept the 5Dc.

That's not really a good example. Though it's rough and your subject is moving, it's not really moving in and out of focus. The wake boarder is tied to a fixed length rope and will always be pretty much the same distance behind the boat even when going from side to side.

And if everything is unsteady as it was this weekend, having your lens focus between what's behind your subject when you point the AF mark off of them because of bumps and then back on your subject again means the camera is doing it's job.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

or it means that the AF is so slow that it never noticed that the object left it's focus area. :):)

Seriously, I know that the 5DII gets a bad rap because of it's slow AF, but as you say, it is not that bad and the hidden helper points do help quite a bit when in AI-Servo mode.

Could you guys who have shot with both the 5dC and 5DII please let me know the max ISO which both bodies can handle without producing noticeable noise?

I know the word "noticeable" is open to interpretation but I hope you know what I mean. Sorry, I'm sure this has been covered numerous times in other threads but I just thought, whilst were talking about it ...

Yup. I shoot with both, the 5D at work and the MkII for fun. I have had very nice pics at ISO3200 in the classic with no noticeable noise, but than I've had the same on a 40D as well. It's all in the exposure and what steps you take to minimize noise.

I haven't had too much experience at high ISO with the MkII, but have shot at 1600 without being careful with little noise.

It seems as if my ISO floor is being raised stop by stop with each camera. With the XT/XTi I tried hard to keep it at ISO100 and maxing out at ISO400. I would shoot faster, but worked to avoid that. With the 40/50 my base went to ISO400 as the difference between 100 and 400 is pretty much gone and ISO1600 became my top end though I stop higher as well.

With both the 7D and MkII it seems my base ISO is now ISO800 and 3200 is no problem.

If money isn't an issue then definately get the MK II, it's a better camera all the way around.

I'd say I was comfy with the classic at 1600 when pushed and knew my 3200 shots wouldn't be super stellar... With the mk2 it's 3200 and at a push 6400 as I k ow with some nr it will be ok BUT won't be an award winning shot...

With the focus- I shoot wakeboarding too and it's actually greAt using the 5d2 as with the 1d3 t grabs the background so easily and so fast in mid air tricks... What sux is shooting far focus point in alot of scenarios such as f1.8 in situation where u don't want to recompose. It surprises me that it hunts when I consider the light to be quite good.
