Well let's see whether the higher ISO is in the sensor or the noise reduction software.

I really want the dual slots but so far I see a 7D + 5d2 as superior for the same money.


My imagine composition sucks. I need a heavier lens.

This is prcecisely what I am looking for in ONE body...mind you there is merit to having this is two bodies IE. backup...but for me I would love this combo in ONE body. Again for the same money
