Dang that font size on the blog is too small to read easily. Also having the font a gray color doesn't help the readability. Anyway I didn't even bother reading the article. Increase the body font size by 2 pixels to make it user friendly.

Why do a comparison on two completely different types of camera?


JBF
Canon 7D, Canon 1D Mark IV, Canon 24-105L f/4, Canon 35L 1.4, Canon 200L f/2.8, Canon 70-200L II IS f/2.8, Canon 300L f/2.8IS, 580ex Flash, 430ex Flash, 1.4X Converter. Bunch of other crap! I want the new 500mmL and the 200L f/2.0

A comparison between these two bodies make a lot of sense for someone considering stepping up from a Rebel or an XXD series, or even for someone who already owns one of them and wants to know what they might be missing. My 7D did a great job for me at many things, but fell a little short in producing crisp, detailed landscape images and didn't perform as well as I needed in low light situations, which is why I purchased the 5D2. From my experience as an owner of both bodies, I find Daytona's review spot-on and can offer some excellent guidance for folks seeking information to improve their results.

Nice job on the review Daytona!

Then why did you steal photos for your review?

Apparently you don't understand that manufacturer stock photos are for promotional use. They're considered free use.

Depends on what you shoot. I shoot with my 5DII more than my 7D only because I shoot more static scenes.


Would you like to buy a vowel?

LoL.

So how long have you been using other people's material then claiming it as your own? (You know... stealing it)

So is having your photos and editorial used without your permission. :)

What a douche. You give real writers and photogs a bad name. :rolleyes:


What's in your (external link) sippy cup?
My stuff:
A low-light hi-def rapid shooter, a sniper, a couple old school 35s.

Some L, a nifty f/1.4, a kit IS, some slow EFs and two crappy Qs.

Because, about every other day we have a new thread titled "Please help! 7D or 5D Mark II" :)

The comparison may be useless for people who know a lot about different Canon cameras, but the fact that the question is asked a lot tell us that many people don't know the difference. Hence, the comparison is valid and helpful to many.

Daytona, nice comparison!
