Ok so this weekend I was at my sons event at school. On stage and I was up front. my flash broke so need a new one or fix my current one with the thread up here.
anyhow.. my t2i while serving me well has been seeming to fall short lately.
so first my needs...
outdoor soccer - I have a son on u14 travel so need a long reach. Currently I use a 55-250 and still have to crop in when shooting down field
outdoor hockey - games are mostly night time so i shoot my t2i with a 85mm @ f1.8 and 1/500 and iso 1600
indoor events, kids concerts, fashion show and indoor stuff in general.
I just purchased a new truck so my old play toy ( mud truck ) has to come off the road. I have a friend wanting to buy it and may just sell it. If he takes the truck I will have some coin to drop.
so the question is which way would I be more happier..
7d / 100-400 IS / 70-200 2.8 IS
5d mark iii
now I just read a thread here
and one guy says he thought he would still use his 7d for sports (soccer) but ended up finding the 5d mark iii the better choice.
If I purchase the 5d mark iii I will not have a lens for soccer at all and wouldnt have the funds for at least 1 year so not sure if the 5d m3 is the right choice.....
yes indoor and auditorium stage shots would be a lot better...
im just undecided as I will be calling my friend today to see if he wants my truck.
