So the time has finally come for me to get my new camera. little history i had a 20D, got stolen so i then had a 40D and after good use i managed to damage it and didn't trust it so gave it to a family member to use as he needed a camera for school (also gave him a nifty fifty 1.8 and my Canon 60mm Macro lense)
My uncle gave me his Rebel Xti over a year ago and his lenses he had:
Sigma DC 18-200mm - http://www.dpreview.com …gma_18-200_3p5-6p3_os_n15
Sigma DC HSM 10-20mm - http://www.dpreview.com …ews/sigma_10-20_4-5p6_n15
Canon nifty fifty 1.8
Canon 4530EX flash
So having said that, i am torn between the 70D and the 7D II.
one side says get the 70D and use the money saved to get a nice lenses to go with it, maybe an L Series finally...to complement the other lenses. I find the sigma's slow and not very sharp, but could also be this aging Xti camera...
The other side of my says get the 7D II, it is newer, seems to do better video possibly with the 60FPS 1080.
Also i do not need touch screen and in general the controls look better for me on the 7D II even though i have had D series twice before..
I will be doing a lot of baby shooting as my friend just had a daughter and likely many dog park shooting and scenery shots.
I am moving from Costa Rica to Calgary Alberta and so my days of macro photography are going to be far less interesting than they were in CR.
Thoughts? (i am currently reading over every single 70D vs 7D II thread and video i can find)
