Yeah, but I shoot with two bodies and I want to replace an aging 40D / 5Dc combo. I don't need the cutting edge tech, I do want the reach advantage of a 7D, over either of the 5D bodies, for birding and the faster fps is better for some action work I do.

A 5D3 would mean pairing it up with my old 40D, I don't see any significant advantages for me with a 5D3 over the 5D2 (apart from AF) but I do see a very significant difference between the 7D and 40D (not least of which are significantly increased reach and the higher fps rate).

Why do u prefer to shoot with two bodies if u dont mind me asking? the 5dmk3 can do everything a 7d/mk2 combo can do and more for same sort of price yet instead of lugging around two bodies, u only have one.

What about a 1d body then?

Shooting with 2 bodies provide the convenience of mounting WA (or standard zoom) on one camera, and a longer telephoto prime (or zoom) on the other. Non-stop seamless shooting experience. It's actually rather convenient.

And if you're a professional events/wedding photographer, 2 camera shooting is almost a must to provide the best coverage, and not only as back-up purposes.

Yeah, that's it basically. Many events have things occuring at different distances. If I am shooting re-enactment battles I can be using 400mm one minute, to capture a cannon being fired at the far side of the battlefield, then having a cavalry formation charge past me close to and need something quite short. No time to change lenses, but there is time to drop one camera and grab the other. I can be swapping between both bodies very quickly all afternoon. In fact, I may well hang on to my 5Dc and carry 3 bodies on some shoots this year, to allow me to have an extra lens mounted.

Even when there are no time constraints, I just find it a pain to be having to change lenses when walking around a show and wanting a different lens to the one I used 2 minutes ago. I can mount 10-22 on the crop and 24-105L on the 5D for a walk around pair when I expect mostly close work, or 24-105L on the 5D and 100-400L on the crop when I expect mostly wide to medium but also some longer stuff. If out birding, or at a zoo, my combo is typically the 100-400L on one body and the 300 2.8L on the other (often with a 1.4 or 2x TC). I still have to do occasional lens swaps, but with the two most frequently used mounted as default, it cuts it down dramatically and I miss less shots due to having the wrong lens on when something unexpected happens.

I always carried 2 or 3 bodies when shooting film and it really bugged me to only have one when I first switched to digital, I seemed to be wandering round events and changing lenses all the time, or sometimes ignoring a shot because I couldn't be bothered to swap to another lens and then straight back again after that shot. After 12 months of that, I was really glad to add a second body.

I know that some people like to just carry one body and a walkaround lens, which is fine, but it doesn't bother me to carry two or three bodies and a backpack of lenses, and it suits the events and shows I tend to attend.

Pop the wide angle on the 5d2 and the other one on this one and you're kicking ass. Precision focusing on the tele with the 5dIII, wider DoF on the other.

Why would the 5D2 have wider DoF vs the 5D3 ???

More 100% crop at other iso HERE (external link)

There really isn't much difference between iso 200 and iso 400. IMHO, iso 1600 is still pretty good, although I probably cannot see why one will want to use iso 1600 for such scene that requires a tripod...

Impressed again. ISO 6400 definitely looks clean, no noise reduction or post-processing applied? ISO 12800 becomes too noisy for my liking.

ISO 6400 sample looks heavily noise reduced :(

There's like no details left :(

Actually there's no detail even in the ISO 200 shot - are you sure they are 100% crops and not 200%?

I think they good good...if you miss by 4 stops anything you are using in going to show alot of noise and I will bet the d800 missed by that much will look even worse. I for one will hold out to see what they do side by side. I use 2 H4d's for work one with a 40MP back and the other with a 60MP back and I can tell ya if I miss by 4 stops even with that size sensor the shadows are going to suffer some.
