I need some opinions please...I've been doing a ton of research, and am formulating my own opinions based on what I have experienced and what I have read, but I am looking for some more opinions, from you please. And yes, this is cross-posted between a few forums.
I sold my 1DMKIIn and 7D a while ago to obtain my 5D3. I am really enjoying my 5D3. However, I have some angst in using my 5D3 outdoors in "inclement" weather, even though it has some seals and gaskets on it. My angst is probably because it is the most expensive camera I have ever owned. I'll describe inclement as sprinkles, snow showers, fog, etc. And yes, I do have a raincover for it, and do use it.
I did not have this feeling while shooting the 1DMKIIn in this type of weather and not quite as much when shooting my 7D (all w/o a rain cover except in pure downpours).
I now want to purchase a second body for these inclement type weather situations again. One I won't have so much angst using like I do with the 5D3.
So, I am back to thinking about picking up a used 1DMKIIn, 7D or 1DMKIII. Or maybe a super remote possibility of trading my 5D3 for a 1D4. Figure, action sports use, like mountain biking in rain showers, skiing/snowboarding in snow/sleet/rain here in New England. Outdoor kid's soccer and baseball in the sprinkles. I don't mind full size, gripped bodies, so size is not much of a concern. Video is not a concern, if I go the 2nd body route. Megapixels is not a huge concern for me either (assuming going the 2nd body route). So, I think it comes down to weather resistance....
Out of the the 1DIIn, 7D and the 1DIII, how would you rate them, weather resistance wise between them? I am not looking for comments about "always using a rain cover," "they aren't waterproof," etc. I just want to hear from your experience among these 3 bodies, which are more weather resistant than which and any other beneficial information you might have on the subject.
Thank you in advance! Ben
