Hello all been a long time since I've been around...
Now I have had a T1i for the past 5 years and absolutely have loved it. But my major concerns among others is that the high iso (for me from 800-1600) isn't really of the best quality putting it mildly.
So I'm in the process of considering to upgrade however I have to be mindful of prices considering the import and customs duties to Trinidad are ridiculous: A $2200 cam would cost me $1000 more or less to clear unless I can find someone to bring it in... and at a 6.4 exchange rate ($20,000.00 TT) that would be crazy to just make up easily.
Now I usually shoot some events at night and indoors where a higher ISO would be beneficial, but also personally I love to shoot birds and aircraft, so based on that my criteria pretty much are:
1 Better IQ at higher ISO for night or indoor shoots
2 Faster autofocus
3 Something with faster FPS than what I have currently...
4 Want to remain crop body preferably
5 Want SD slot (not too much a fan of CF cards)
Now I know that the general thing is to get better glass for better images and that will be done in time, but for now looking for a body that will help me to increase the limitations... so with that I have been keeping an eye on the 7Dmk2, the 70D, the 6D (only full frame i would consider) and the upcoming T6s
I initially watched the 70D till I read about the focus issue (which sometime in life I would like to get faster L lenses) and though the 7dmk2 and 6d are quite high in the price range, I was considering to start saving for one of them, until I read the T6S is to release and by all looks it seems not too bad on paper.
So my question is which of these would you consider getting which will be a good compromise to what is needed and to be kept for another 5 years or more should I choose to?
