What?!

Broken tailbone and concussion. Unable to drive or sit for long periods of time, so no travel to shoot photos, visit family or much of anything else.

Was involved in a wee bit of an accident. Caused more than a few complications in life. LOL Hoping things have settled down and I can get back into doing more stuff.

Dang! But glad to see you back. :)

Nice to meet the thread starter, although it could have been under better circumstances. Hope you're doing much better, and your sit vs lay time is getting longer on the sit side.

I'm teaching my puppy sit and lay right now along with stay and come.

I have 2 cats. They tend to do what they want regardless of what I say. They do spend a lot of hours asleep though.

Let's put it this way, if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't. LOL

Ahh crap, I haven't bought any camera gear for a long while - Kids (good), Life (good) and Work (bad) gets in the way.

So I see that the 5D mark IV comes out and I'm thinking I've wanted a full frame ever since the original came out but I could never justify buying it on my wages at the time. Instead I procrastinated and bought a few lenses and cameras, including the 400mm f5.6, this is all before kids (I'm in love with this lens btw). I had my first kid and bought the 7D with the good excuse as it being a good investment in memories (kid photos and stuff) with the added bonus of a great birding combo.

Fast forward to now and I start investigating the Mark IV, I like it - problem is now I need a new middle of the range zoom. That adds a bit (lot) of cost as the middle stuff since mostly I have is EFS. One thing leads to another and now I'm eying of the 500mm f4 II that would naturally have to go with a FF. This endeavor could get expensive real fast. Now I'm thinking should I wait for the 7D Mark III and get the 500mm now or should I stick with my 400 and get a 5D Mark IV because of the better (non-birding) pics.

Life is hard. And this hobby is expensive if you let it get away from you. Should I just wait?

Thoughts anyone?

I mean it can still take some nice images - though I'm not that happy with the 7D noise...

When I'm looking to upgrade, I get the camera in my hands to see how it feels. Then I rattle off some images, become very impressed or very disappointed (rarely). You can decide you don't like it. I passed on the 1Dx. Too much camera for me.
Or if you want to wait, I'd pass on the 7D Mark III and wait for the Mark IV. It's rumored to have dual flux capacitors.

As for the 5D IV, I have it, I love it. I haven't had a lot of time with it yet. That whole life and work thing is keeping me pretty busy right now, but when I do make some time to shoot, it really is a stellar camera.

Sell your wife and kids and buy the 5DIV and a 100-400mm f2.8

Hope that helped!

As for 500mm, I love my Sigma 150-600 OS (C) and Tamron now has an upgrade out same focal length. I find I need to shoot at f/7.1 or 8 anyways because the dof is si thin at 500-600mm...
