Thanks, every once in awhile I find a gem while doing my research on how to take better pics.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

you are good LOL, yes that is the original 5D which in my opinion was better portrait wise than the 5DII. That said the other two were crop sensor and I don't think I had to do much work at all on them, the last one was at ISO 2500. I think if all you are going to take pics of is still portraits, yes upgrade (if you can call it that) to full frame, but otherwise wait it out. in the next couple of years there will be some big changes in cameras. I am very partial to the range-finder style of camera these days but I've been told NO MORE CAMERAS:lol:

Agree with what you said about the original 5D. I have one myself and believe it's still one of the best IQ cameras (esp. portrait) available today. There is just something special about the files it produces.

He really speaks a lot of truth in people getting caught up in the gear

@ Teamspeed

Hmmm, much tougher on these!

I initially had the first one as FF, then wasn't so sure.
Second one looked FF to me, but again, could have gone either way!
Third one was crop (again, very, very close)
Fourth one looked like a 5D FF to me.

In the end, I decided it was

FF
FF
Crop
FF

So, I got the first one wrong.

I think you are mind f-ing yourself. Just because you see lots of amazing images from the 5D2, it doesn't mean the 7D can't produce the same. It's more a result of the person taking the photo, not the camera. A lot of the people with a 5D2 are just really good, not that FF automagically makes the images better.

I'm not saying the 5D2 doesn't have great IQ, it does, but that the 7D is capable of taking amazing images as well. Look at the many posts here with side by side images from both.

Well put my friend....

have you owned a 5d2? for me, jumping from my t2i to the 5d2, i saw a huge improvement in IQ especially high iso, low light pictures, as well as the thinner dof. of course, not everyone equipped with a FF becomes a pro, i'm not saying that, but you should see improved iq going from crop to ff.

OP, you might as well put that 7d up for sale right now. i remember you asking about a camera upgrade a few months ago and i think you might as well have bit the bullet back then. it's worth every cent, trust me.

PeyDay17 you are still relatively new to photography and you are going through what many newcomers to photography go through. Wanting to upgrade equipment in search of better images before taking a step back and doing a self examination to see if you are fully utilizing the equipment and knowledge you already have acquired.

I hope you realize you already have one of the finest dslr bodies Canon has ever produced. I would suggest you compliment it with some glass that will bring out the best that the sensor has to offer. Hardware wise I would throw this glass on the 7D.

I would swap out the Canon 85 with the Sigma 85 f/1.4 for tack sharp images even with a narrow dof.
Either the Canon or Sigma 50 f/1.4 will also give you a sharp image even at a very narrow dof.
The 17-55 f/2.8 IS lens is everything you want in a (L) lens and more without the L. No other lens is sharper across all apertures than this lens. And it's for 1.6x only.
Those are not the only choices for good glass of course but they help the 7D produce some amazing images.

I have followed your 365 project with your daughter and you really have some nice photo's and you do have a keen eye for catching some once in a lifetime moments. I can't find much if anything to critique about your composition or shooting style.

One item i have noticed however is many of your portrait pics where your color channels are off by quite a bit. I am mentioning the color imbalance in particular because one thing that helps the mind decide how pleasing a photo may look is the color balance in the photo's presentation to it. It's a mistake many photog's including myself don't realize untill we are shown how to color correct properly by a professional.
Now please don't take it as a harse criticism because I really do think you are one of the more talented young photographers on these forums. I really believe however you would benefit more from a training course say from Chris Orwig over at Lynda.com. Here is a Link (external link)

In whichever path you decide upon keep shooting and I wish you the best of luck.

Thank you very much for the compliments and the help! I will do some research on the color correcting and see if I can improve my post. Im still relatively new to post.

I will look for ways to better myself and see if it can pull me out of this "gear obsession" I've been having lately.

I sold my XSi and 18-55mm to a friend of mine tonight. I'm putting the money towards a sigma 30mm 1.4.

...try one more thing, Pey. Upload one image directly here, then link the same image over SmugMug or Flickr and let's see how they look next to each other. I've noticed some linked images from those sites get pretty thin by the time they go through all their processing to save bandwidth.
