Hi guys, i have a 7D and considering the switch to 5DII as im finding i do love the 7D but my 7D doesn't deal with the higher ISO in lower light situations all that well? IS the 5DII much better for ISO?

Thanks :)

It's said that you'll gain a stop at higher ISOs.

I have the 5D MKII & the current crop bodys and your not paying $2499 just for the FF format since the 7D`s AF performance is miles ahead of the 5D MKII:

fair enough, would you say it performs alot better in low light, do you notice a big difference?

The 7d is no slouch but the 5d II wins the iso war at all iso over 200. It does based on my bodies anyway.Would you see this in print? Not so much.

Looking at your gear, if you are not getting the shot at f1.4 and 1/25 of a second...

Also look up team speed's photo analysis on this very topic. I'd link for you but I'm surfing on my phone :)

Why is there so much hate for flash on here? Done correctly, and let's be honest this is pretty easy, you won't even know it was flashed.

True!

7D is very usable even up to 6400, 5d2 you will get a stop more out of it.

It all depends on print size , and technique too!

A lot of churches and religious ceremony leaders dont allow flash during the actual ceremony.

I never used a flash in church when I only had a 400d and have excellent photos from them. The 7D certainly does not need a flash in religious cerimonies with the correct lenses.

The better photo is the result of proper noise reduction technics, not the camera body.

I was responding to that post. :D
I agree. ISO 1600 looks great, even with no NR. 3200 is very useable.

Keep in mind that you only get less noise with the 5D2 if you accept a thinner DOF. So if you don't want thinner DOF, the 5D2 will not have any benefit in low light.

I dont hate flash at all, but when i shoot the evening partis and so on i prefer to try and keep it natural light, i feel it just looks more natural :)

Thanks for the info though guys, i might with a 60D as my second body for now and upgrade to a 5DII later and keep my 7D

:D
