I have a 10d and am looking to upgrade. One thing that I shoot a lot of is racing/sports. The auto focus has had me scream a few profanities every once in awhile and when lighting fades the noise can get real bad real quick. ISO 800 is as high as I will go.

I never had an issue with the focusing on the 10D, but I only used the center point. I shot at 1600 all the time and could get clean images, providing there was enough light.


As far as image quality under iso 800 you wont see any improvement if you stay with a crop , my 10D is on par with my EOS M. It actually handles the colors better, especially the reds.

for me I would say it's a need to get what my current body is lacking. I'm looking to upgrade to better low light performance, better AF, and to be able to have a higher FPS. I'm debating on FF or sticking with a crop sensor right now. I currently don't see myself ever printing anything larger than 8x10 but you never know.
For years I just had good point and shoot cameras and wanted more but wasn't ready to invest in a DSLR, when the T3 came out I pulled the trigger on it figuring my initial investment wasn't too bad considering I had paid close to that for some point and shoots in the past. I knew when I got the T3 that I would have a need for a higher end model but getting the wife on board with the higher price tag was an issue. Quickly after getting it she realized it was a good investment. Since I got her on board with the whole camera thing it's made it easier for me to get new Lenses and recently she's realized that upgrading the body will help me get more perfect shots in tricky conditions like at our son's football games at night that are poorly lit.

Income has kept me in check a number of times but I might give in to the FF lust in April when I can sell some stocks I got from work. Depending on what is out then I could either buy a 6D, 7D (7Dii?), or the 70D and more lenses. The 5Dii or 5Diii would either cause my wife to divorce me or kill me, but either one is rather tempting to get. :lol:

Thanks eveybody for the very interesting points of view.
As an amateur I rarely feel that what my gear misses is worth spending big money, maybe it't just that I'm scrooge. sometimes I think I need an extra lens to take that specific shot that now I just cannot take but really never think about body limitations...your posts are opening some new possibilities :)

1. Buy a Rebel body
1a. Learn to hate the small ergonomics and single wheel
2. Make decision to buy XXD or XD body (more reasons than just ergonomics*)
3. Look at portfolio
3a. 95% of what I shoot are portraits or candids
3b. Determine FF is going to suit my style
4. Decide between 5D MKII or 5D MKIII
5. Buy 5D MKIII
5a. profit :p

* in addition to ergonomics, I wanted more cross type points, better AF and better low light performance.

The need for speed & quality. I have just mad the jump to 1D mkIII and love it. Had a mkII and it took awesome pictures, but I wanted the menu system the mkIII uses.

Still very happy with my 7D backups.
