I am finally ready to upgrade from my XTi. I have been looking at the 7D Mark II and the 80D (which I had borrowed from a friend). My uses for the camera are for sweet 16 events, very minimal weddings and the occasional small family events (birthday, baptisms, portrait, etc). I don't do sports or any action other than my son's soccer games. I have been wanting a camera that can do well on low light, specially when a dance floor/church/banquet hall is not well lit. I hope one of these camera will do much better at high ISO as my XTi did not perform well is this category. As well as sharp pictures.
I have a Canon 50mm 2.8 lens and a Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 lens with a Canon 580ex.
I am open to other cameras but I have set a budget of at least $1,500. I have also checked the classifieds here so I am not stuck on a new camera either. As I have seen an ad for:
5D mk ii - $800 obo. comes with grip, battery, cord shutter release and wireless remote. All original inserts and straps included. Shutter count is at 48,XXX
I know this is a discontinued item, but heck I have been using the XTi for a couple of years already.
I have tried to read what I can on these cameras but to be honest I have no knowledge on these at all and have not had any handling on any of these other than 1 day with the 80D. I don't think that counts very much.
By the way do any of these cameras allow for viewing on a ipad or pc tablet on photoshoots wireless or wired?
I thank you in advanced for your help.
