Hi all, So just wanted a quick 2nd opinion.
I have been an avid Canon fan for years. I have had the pleasure of owning and shooting with various L lenses (24-70 and 100-400) and many bodies (350D, 700D, 1Dmk2, 1Dmk2N, 1Dmk3, 5Dmk2 etc...
Then took the jump and moved over to Sony mirrorless with the A6000, I loved it but it still didnt make me quite happy. I now shoot with a Fuji X-E1 and 18-55 f2.8 lens which i am totally in love with along with some vintage m42 glass.
Now i am looking at going back into equine and motorsport photography and i have shot a little with my Fuji but it has a hard time (so do i)
So..... now i am looking at moving back to Canon, I have pretty much narrowed it down to 1Dmk3 (as it is perfect, i have owned it, rugged and i know i can get great results. However, someone threw a spanner in the works and recomended the 7D mk2.. they both seem to be selling around the £400-500 mark body only.
I know the 7D has more mpix etc. but i can honestly say that 10 is enough.
the long battery life and build quality has always attracted me to the 1D series and the AF is fantastic.
I will be coupling the camera with either a Sigma 50-500 (again because i have owned one and thoroughly enjoyed it) or the much fancier Canon 70-200 f2.8 IS (mk1 not mk2)
Anyone shed any advice on what they personally would chose and why?
