WOW, Bobby! Giving up a 5D2 and going back to a 7D! That's a first!

Care to tell us why the change?

There are a few reasons. The biggest is for what and how I shoot, and the lenses I use, there is no difference in how my images look when they are cleaner(no noise). Like candids, shots of the kiddos, etc. Now, this probably wouldn't be true of all crops, but it is with the 7D. I love the SIgma 30mm 1.4, which is crop only. removing crop vs ff, I just prefer shooting with the 7D. When I want grain in my images, I prefer the look of the high iso noise the 7D sensor produces. I can get this gritty look I really like. When I shoot high iso and do not want the noise, LR4 easily removes it from the raw files of the 7D. Also, a crop in general thing, I like the magnification factor because I like to shoot tighter. So, it is really a case of the 7D being the better tool for me.

I did the same months ago. 5D2 does take cleaner images, but I missed the reach. Would have liked to have kept both, but one had to go....

I am astounded! From what I read on POTN, the only way to beat a 5D2 is to get a 5D3 or a 1DX. I was starting to wonder what all that I might be missing out on by confining my photography to a 7D. I'm glad to know that I'm not missing much, if anything. Thank you, Bobby!

All of my lenses, 10-22, 17-55, 55-250 and 100-400L just WORK so well on my 7D. Thanks for your feedback, fotobuff!

The problem on a message board this big is you get thousands of people speaking on things they have no actual experience with. Full frame has this mystique about it. The fact is, with the Sig 30, and either the Sig 85 or Canon 85 1.2 the magic 3D look can be made with crop bodies. Also the 7D is a unique animal in the canon line up. The best thing to do always is test for yourself and use the tool which works best for you. If you can't think of why you need full frame, you don't need it. It sounds like you love your lenses on a 7D. The only confinement was in your mind. And now that is gone.

Magoo,Mike and Peter, thanks. I appreciate it!!

Magoo, For birds I use spot metering,al servo focusing, high speed continuous In manual mode. I usually overexpose by at least 2/3 of a stop over the meter reading the camera gives me. Of course the light dictates the settings(aperture,shut​ter speed),but I'm just trying to get the fastest shutter speed possible. With the 7d I try to never go over an iso of 400. and stop down by at least 1 stop thought I think 100 to 400 does pretty decent wide open.

Other than that It's just taking a crap ton of shots in hopes that you can get a couple of decent ones.
