Thanks! I like the sport pics I get with my 5d3, but I would like to have good eye AF for portraits. (Yes, a little more fps for sports would be nice too.) I do have also 7d2, but I use it only for birds & wildlife.. I prefer 5d3 files if I'm not reach limited, and especially in low light.
Really don't know where to go. 5d4 would certainly be good upgrade, but it lacks the eye AF... R has only 3-5 fps and the eye af works only in one shot.. I cannot afford A9... I cannot use my Canon lenses in A7iii or A7Riii for sports... Not sure if X-T3 would be worth the money to upgrade my 7d2 either. Anyway, my "dearest" Canon lens is 135L, and I'd like to get a nice body to shoot with it both sports, kids and portraits! Maybe I just have to wait better R...?
are you in the US? I would try to look for sales this time of year, maybe a used one from MPB, Adorama, bh, lens rental, or borrow lenses. I got in on an incredible deal with the A9 (lower than super low advertised price due to misrepresentations), and it's hard to put down, it's just a notch above the mk3 bodies, but if you're coming from 5D3 and want newer tech and increase in frame rate, A73/R3 should more than satisfy. I got the A9 a ton less than I did for the R3, and even that I got on sale.
