Hi,

I am looking to upgrade me 30D and I am currently looking at two options, 7D or 5D Mkii.

Which one has a better image quality?

Thanks,
Ayman

5dII. as long as your image is in proper focus. 7d has better of center focusing.

Thanks folks, I realize all the other differences in the specs between the two cameras. I am leaning toward the 5d mkii, I think it worth the $1000 difference in the price.

That really depends on what you shoot.

if you shoot quick moving objects (sports, birds, wildlife, kids running etc) then the 7d will give better IQ because it will focus better.
if youre shooting stuff that isnt moving the 5d2 should be better by a bit.

I mostly shoot people, landscapes and very little of sport, the other reason I like the 5d ii is a heard it is better in low light because of the ff and the better ability to handle noise.

Could you justify the 5d iii at all? You get the best of both almost. Probably a little more here and there.

Sounds like the 5DII is the right tool for the job you need to do. If it weren't for my daughter's color guard shows I would have a 5DII. As it is, I'm quite happy with my 7D


I am serious....and don't call me Shirley.
Canon 7D and a bunch of other stuff

This is like asking which is faster, Lamborghini or Ferrari. Both are plenty fast. You drive them and decide which is a better fit for you.

5d2 or 5dc would be a good choices for you to look at.

Given what you like to shoot --- and provided that you can use center point AF when focusing is critical --- I think the 5D II is a wonderful choice and most definitely is worth the extra money.

When I upgraded from a 40D I also looked at both the 7D and 5D II. After using a friend's 7D, I was very tempted to go that route. Instead I went 5D II for FF. Never regretted that choice --- aside from the fact that it motivated me to spend a *LOT* more on glass. Didn't go straight to L glass. I picked up the 35/2, 50/1.4, and 100/2 when I found excellent sales.

The 5d Mk2 has the better image quality. Simples.

5DII is for you it sounds like. Landscapes and portraiture is exactly where the 5DII excels.

I use the outer focus points on the 5DII all the time. They work fine. No not in super dark areas, but anything with even just mediocre light levels and better works just fine.
