I bought a 5DC when they first came out, or at any rate before the 5D2 was even suspected, and last year I bought a 7D. I now use my 7D mainly with a long lens, and my 5D for wide angle. In the middle I use whichever comes to hand. The 7D is better if I need to crop, but the images from the 5DC are sublime when everything goes right.


5D & 7D (both gripped), 24-105L, 100-400L, 15-85, 50 f1.8, Tamron 28-75, Sigma 12-24, G10, EX-Z55 & U/W housing, A1+10 lenses, tripods, lighting gear, etc. etc.

So when you say when everything goes right, what does that mean? Do you find yourself using your 7D more than the 5D? Just curious I know each user is different.

Currently I do use the 7D more than the 5D because I'm doing a lot of telephoto work. When I do interiors I use the 5D, and I'm taking it on a photographic tour of Rome shortly. It's easier to get a photo right with the 7D, but when I get a good photo with the 5D it's (marginally) better than anything the 7D can produce.

I am loving this camera. I use it as a 2nd camera when I shoot weddings. I like the simplicity of it. It just works.

A good photographer can take extraordinary photos anywhere, with any camera and any lens while a mediocre one will take mediocre ones everywhere, with every camera and every lens.
Never limit yourself with what others think you should do. Shoot what you find interesting, exactly the way you want to.

Personally, I prefer range-finders for still pictures and movies taken on film.
Can't afford digital range-finder and film range-finder I have is not practical for every day photography.
Using 500D for filming at home and chaise with it after birds and planes.
5Dc is good for still digital pictures. All I need is large viewfinder and 35mm sensor.
5Dc allows to use old MF lenses in addition to EF primes and it gives 35mm (film) FOV, DOF and perspective.
