heres a couple more the swallow with my 5DIII and osprey with my 7D. much prefer the lens on the 5DIII but on a crop camera can get awesomely close
One related question about your comment on getting close on the 7D; would you not be able to take the same picture with the 5DIII and crop without loss of IQ?
The 5DIII has a larger sensor so it will have better dynamic range as each pixel will receive more light? Not "questioning" you; I am just moving away from a 70D so at times I feel like I am giving up the crop-factor benefit in moving to the 5DIII but the 70D pictures were quite noisy at higher ISOs so genuinely trying to understand and learn. Thanks!
Each individual pixel will be better, but there just won't be as many pixels on the bird itself, which means you will lose detail. At high ISO settings, the noise factor may mean that your overall IQ would be better with the FF body even without as many pixels on target, but that would depend on the conditions of the specific shot.
