I recently sold my 7D and planning to get a 1DIV. I am kind of confused with these 2 options. I understand that 1DX is just around the corner but I cannot afford that.
Here are my options. I have around $1700 cash now
Keep Sigma 50mm + Sell 85L II + with $1700 cash buy a 1DIV with around 50K clicks
Buy a 7D + Keep 85L II + Replace Sigma 50mm with 50L with remaining cash
I shoot sports in daylight and indoor volleyball. FPS wise whatever 7D offers is good for me. Anything more from 1DIV is a bonus. I am mostly interested in IQ and low light capabilities of 1DIV over 7D. I am not a pro but both the above options are quite doable for me. The reason why 50L is in picture is because I owned this lens in the past and traded it. I really liked the performance of that lens.
P.S: I have a 5D2 and the lenses in my signature. So I am covered from the FF and lenses side . My 85L is tack sharp but only selling because 85mm FL is not my cup of tea. I rarely use it.
P.S2: If anybody is looking to trade their 1DIV for my 85LII + cash please let me know. I cannot afford a whole lot on top. Somewhere in $1650 range
