5D3 + 7D
- Same battery
- Very similar body controls.
- To have a second back up body.
- To have 2 different format ( FF and 1.6x )
- Keep in mind the 5D3 is better than 7D in every way.

Except for the reduced reach of the 5D3 vs 7D using the same telephoto lens, just depends on what you shoot... Other than that, we agree 100%. :)

I am really enjoying my 5D3!

You guys have made me start to concider selling both and also the tokiga 11-16 to buy a used 5DIII. I mean, what's the point when I don't have to own a backup body? I don't do photography for a living. There are a couple of lenses I'd like to get too. I guess I could buy an extender to compensate for the lack of focal length if I should feel limited.

The 6d is very good, having two FF makes two lens shooting easier.
The 5d3 is still the better action camera, but for all else the 6d is certainly no slouch. The wifi is very handy fo me, and the main reason I bought the 6D instead of another 5D3, the IQ of the 6d will not disappoint, is as good as it gets. But it want keep up with action like the 5D3.

The 70D looks promising if you need crop.

I just put the 7D and Tokina 11-16 out for sale. I haven't decided if I'm going to sell the 5Dc after buying 6D or 5DIII yet. I've realized I don't need to own two bodies. Sure it's more convenient but I'd rather have another good piece of glass.

The 5D3 will be the better all around body between 5D3 and 6D in my opinion. I currently use the 7D and 5D3 and am quite happy with this combo. Apparent reach with the 7d and superior performance of the 5d3. F8 autofocus of the 5D3 has been very helpful at times. I also consider the Autofocus of the 5D3 to be superior to the one on 6D.
FWIW.

I have this combo, not sure how the buffer is better on the 5D3? Mine drives me nuts. Different bodies for different applications. Perfect combo for me. Wish list is buffer work in firmware like the 7d got.

I've had no issues with the buffer in the 5D3. Are you using the SD slot? Using just the CF card slot, I've never hit the buffer.

I'd agree, no problems with my 5D MkIII when using CF only, a 16gb 600x Transcend UDMA-7 will take 23 shots (in ideal conditions admittedly) before a pause and taking the 24th frame. That's over 3 seconds (nearly 4) of continuous firing at my MkIII's closer to 6.5fps than the quoted 6 on firmware 1.2.1.

My old 7D did 27 or 28 frames in the same conditions/same card which at 8fps is a pretty similar 3.5 seconds of continuous firing with firmware 2.0.3.

The SD slot is slower.

The card speed on the 5d MK III makes a huge difference. With the faster processor of the 5D MK III is notice quite a bit of difference on buffer and how fast the card writes depending on which card I am using. The new Lexar 1000X cards are the best and fastest I have found for the 5D Mk III, I notice a difference with my 300X and 600X cards, all Lexar being slower which affects the buffer than the 1000X cards on the 5D Mk III. I do not notice really any difference between the 600X and 1000X cards on my 7D. I only shoot in RAW and do not use jpeg and have only tested using the CF card.

You had a point, so I checked. 9 shots then the buffer fills. 6 if using one-shot and shooting quickly. 600x card, with and without SD card inserted. ISO 1000, f10, 1/200th. I dont understand why the buffer fills more quickly on one shot. I know that higher ISO uses more processor but still....I keep my SD for emergency overflow since it only writes @133x and slows the CF to the same rate.
