There's no denying that the most professional DSLR you can get from Canon is a 1-series. However, I see way more professionals using bodies like the 5D Mark II than 1-series bodies.
Of course, it always depends on where you look. At a major sports event, there will most likely be more 1-series bodies present than anything else (except maybe Nikon D3s ;) ).

Bulllll ****, The 7D and 5DII have weathersealing on the same level as the EOS-1N, Which was, at the time, a Professional camera

And it doesnt stop me:

Little hard to tell i guess but it was raining out when i took this, and yes, i shoved my 7D down into the mud to get a couple shots...

Dual card slots..fine i guess..i dont know about card failures, I've had many CF and SD cards and never had a failure...

Comment wasn't directed at you. I know you love your 7D.

And the 7D is slightly below the 1N (look at the techicals, it's missing some key seals at the shutter and tripod mount. The 5D has even fewer seals. Also, have you ever seen the rebel T2i dropped from 5500 feet video? It lived. Ever seen the T2i takes a swim video? It lived. Doesn't mean it's as statistically sound as a 7D, nor a 1D*. I'm talking about protection from events like a bridesmaid getting too drunk and pouring water on the photog. Or getting pushed into a pool. Been there done that kept shooting with a 1D*.

Agreed on the shutter release lacking seals (I do have to admit i found that one out the hard way :() the flash button on the 7D also lacks sealing..

I really REALLY hope Canon ups the sealing on the 5DIII and 7DII and makes them more hardy, More pros buy and use the 5D and 7D series cameras than the 1-series because simply enough, you can have 2 of the above for the cost of 1 current 1 series, and having 2 bodies is always better than having one..

Of course the weight and size is another thing!

sorry if i sounded a bit nasty x3

Wow this thread went all over the place...

I for one think this camera and lens combo is amazing. Just not enough for me to dive in, no real reason, just personal preference. I wonder how many shooters will give this rig a shot, pun very intended

Why do you think it's amazing? Unless I'm mistaken they aren't even on the market yet.

Perhaps "potentially amazing" is more apropriate

On paper, It looks good, its a good paper dragon at the moment with the capabilities to launch a direct assault on the 7D and come out on top, and perhaps even go against the 1-series, Not win, but go against it and put up a fairly respectable fight given the price...

However thats speculation....

I am looking to upgrade my 5D MK I for some time, I am quite tempted to switch to Sony. I like the translucent mirror concept. However, as pointed out in many reviews, one of the problem is the small buffer size. I don't really need 12 FPS, 8 FPS is enough, but I hope the translucent mirror technology can give more accurate continuous focusing. And I like the continuous focusing in video too. Also, the in body stabilization and Carl Zeiss lens. If Sony can do well in the PQ including high ISO noise, I think I will switch. They also price it quite aggressively, I think.
I am waiting for both the 5D MK III and Sony A77 ... or even next Nikon D700. But please, don't give me a 30 Mbp sensor ... I don't need it.


Canon 5D MK I | Canon 24-70 F2.8 L | Canon 70-200 F2.8 L IS I | Sigma 85 F1.4 | Tamron 1.4x TC | Canon 430 EXII

i'm willing to go with an a77. i used to shoot sony and was more than happy with the results i got. the 24mp is a little too much but if the oled finder is anything like the one on the nex7 it'll be a hit.

Actually the OLED EVF is the same one as used in the NEX-7...:)

That's because this thread is 18 years old and those vids have since disappeared. Here's a decent one: http://techcrunch.com …-survives-3000-foot-drop/ (external link)
