I finally am getting a chance to replace my 5D camera that went swimming in Alaska a couple years ago. I've been shooting my 20D all along, but am ready to put a new camera or two in my bag. My wife is interested in shooting with more than the powershot Elph I bought her a couple years ago. Since I shoot mostly for fun, I shoot landscapes and travel photos, portraits and have been the photog at few events, Christmas parties, a couple weddings, etc... but also get called to be the GWC at church events. Recently I had a chance to shoot low light (no flash) at a concert. Wow! Whole new area and I really had fun. But my 20D was really too slow. nuff said here, my wife still needs to be convinced, I'm almost there....Yes, I need to look at my lenses, but really want a camera to keep up with me no matter what. So if I budget roughly the money for a 1D Mark 4, (that would be alot of fun!) would I be better off to buy the 1D4 or get a FF (love that aspect of it) and pick up the 7D as a backup and low light camera. This would give everyone in my household a chance to shoot. (I have a 9 yeqr old son who could learn on the 20D, the wife could use the 7D for macro (flowers and bugs) and I could use the 5D2 for all (my) the fun stuff and when I need low light or fast action, use the 7D. Or I could give her the 20D, she can share with my boy, and I could carry the 1D4.
What do you think? Any advantages or disadvantages I should consider in my purchase? Maybe ther is something out there I maybe haven't thought of.
I'm pretty well settled on needing a new body, I'm okay with my current lens (I will add to them over the next few purchases, so let's not go there.)
Thanks in advance!
