17-55 IS, there isn't an EF lens that matches it and it is a great portrait lens.... ;)

And the 7D has spot point AF which is actually quite nice for portraits too. :)

Battery life is many times better than the 5D, so less time taken up changing batteries. :)

You did ask for some advantages, I can't really come up with too much more. :lol:

And you are really stretching it when you are claiming the above points are advantages. I get by quite well with my 85 1.8 lens for portraits thank you. As far as battery life goes, I've never run out shooting portraits with the 5D. If I did, it takes what 20 seconds to change batteries. Never had any issues at all focusing the 5D for portraits.

I don't believe any of those points you detailed are advantages.

I would urge you to stretch your budget and include a 17-40 - pretty easy to find used, and makes an exceptional combination with FF sensor.

Yeah I dont blame you at all the 5D creates immaculate photos with that intangible full frame feel.

Its intangible because it isnt there.

FF has certain features that lend themselves to certain types of photography, but this "FF magic" stuff is a bunch of garbage. The pictures arent magically better because they were made with a FF sensor.

Some pictures are better because they benefited from the high ISO performance, others are perceived to be better because the thinner DOF helped with subject isolation. But no picture is better just because of some magical/intangible thing that only a FF sensor provides.

Now, thats not to rag on the 5D - if you need the features of FF on a budget like the OP, its a great deal.

the only reason I'd ever use a 5d over a 7d is if I used lenses like:

16-35
all the tilt shifts
15mm fish
14 2.8
24L
35L

etc.

if you plan to use anything else, i wouldn't do it

Name me some of those advantages the 7D has over the 5D when it comes to portraits.

everything, unless you're taking portraits with ultrawides.

well either way i did the switch already. just waiting for my 5d to come here. hehe as for the advantages, in my case, i need the IQ more than hyper shutters and high iso capabilities etc. that the 7D has. 5D it is and im not turning back regreting i made the switch from a fancy crop to a old but handy FF body.

Well, in that case, happy shooting. The 5Dc will take the same great images it always has and hopefully you won't miss the extra features of the 7D.

The 35L is a pretty amazing lens. I haven't used one on my 5d, but rented one when I had a 7d and was very pleased. I can only imagine how it would be on a 5d, but I have a zeiss 35 for that.
