For a wide fast prime. .. the 24LII is next on my list. ..Omg what an awesome lens. I rented one and feel in love.

...I was afraid someone was going to say that... !
So - would that be a lens you would consider for up close concert/performance shoots? I'm a bit worried about body/facial distortion if up too close (I should probably post these q's over in the appropriate lens threads - soz for getting things off-track)

Ken in my testing the 5DII does better for single frame LE. But in continuous shooting like star trails the lag between exposures of the 7D is a fraction of that of the 5DII which results in smaller gaps in the light trails.

I posted one here last week, I only really used it for one thing, I didn't get to use it as much as I had hoped, but that was my fault. I just liked the images it produced. The light falloff was so smooth, and when used right it really brought the eye to the subject. I like vignette, I don't gripe about it...the bokeh was almost perfectly round not onion shaped like my 85 f1.8. But it let you get close, and still get some context. Shooting wide open that context faded OOF quick but that is what I love about fast primes. I just liked it. It won't be for everyone, I am renting it again in a week and a half for a whole week...the next step will be to save a lot of pennies and couch change!

I am not sure. I have only done one concert type performance, and I was not allowed to get close enough to the performer to use a 24mm. I didn't feel like distortion was a problem on the 5DII. You just have to control your angle to your subject.

Just got mine.
As an 5D Classic owner I felt right at home with this body.
Few shots from my walk in the woods today.
