Getting my photography house in order and selling off gear to fund a new body. Sold my 60D and will sell my 1D classic and 1D mark IIn. I'm looking at either the 7D or the 1Dmk3. The body will have to serve kinda of a wide role covering soccer games in daylight to dance competitions with not great lighting. The 1dmkii has done a good job, but I would prefer a little better high iso performance.

Any opinions?comments?advi​ce?

Also, I will keep the 5dmk2 body for the other stuff I shoot.

Is weather sealing important to you? Are you planning on shooting in the rain? If so, are you ok with putting a cover on the 7D? If not, 1D.

Resolution. The 7D has better resolution. If you don't have long enough lenses and always crop heavily, then 7D.

Build quality. If this is important to you, 1D all the way.

AF. The 1D has a better AF system (well, maybe not as advanced but more accurate and faster nonetheless).

Video. Choice is obvious.

Price? About the same. A used 1D Mk III runs a little more than a new 7D.

Bells and whistles. If that sort of thing makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside and you think all the fancy **** won't get in the way of what's important (ie- shooting), then 7D.

IQ. Resolution aside, I think 1D files have beeter IQ (slightly).

As you can see from my signature, I'm biased. I say go for the 1D Mark III.

Thanks for the response.

Since you have it in the signature, is the 1d3 high iso performance much better that the 1d2?

Oh yes. ISO 1000 on the Mark II is the highest I dare go. Above that, noise is bad (as I'm sure you already know). ISO 3200 on the Mark III is probably equivalent to ISO 1000 on the Mark II. Also, ISO performance of the Mark III is slightly better than that of the 7D.

I have both bodies and I'd agree with what emtp has said. The 7D is a super wee camera, but moving from the 7D to the mkiii in soccer you can feel, hear and smell the difference in terms of the frames per second. Even though the 7D is guaged for 8fps it rarely appears to reach that, but the mkiii is noticebly more consistent in getting close to the 10fps and the results confirm that. The only thing I miss between the two bodies is the 18mp compared to the 10mp, but I'll save the 7D for the good weather and the bike racing season and use the mkiii for the soccer season when the weather is less kind.

Unless you need video, I would go with the 1D. Here are a few shots. One in good light and a couple, not so good.

ISO 3200, this is as high as I would go personally. As you can see, noise is manageable but becoming a problem.
