5dmk3.

7d, nice AF and everything but too many MP for that small sensor. With 5dmk3 you get nice FF sensor and AF better than 7d. So I would go 5dmk3 unless I needed two cameras.

There have been several threads discussing exactly this combo along with other threads comparing the MkII to the MkIII, the 7D to the MkII ect. In summary... It depends on what your looking for. There is no right answer.

Or more reach, or don't want to give up EF-S lenses or a multitude of other reasons.

5Dmk3. It's the best of both worlds FF IQ & awesome AF.

I love my 7D & 10-22/17-55IS combo but the 5dmk3 just makes my life much easier.

Soon this thread will have to be renamed to 5D3 vs 6D + 7D.

I would prefer the double combo given the choice. The 5d3 is superior to the 5d2 but if you do need superfast af and burst step in the 7d. As said there is no right and its down to what you prefer but put the 3 of them infront and I'll take 2 please

Burst agree. Super fast AF you mistaken. 5dmk3 AF is better.

There is nothing like having two cameras when shooting events. 35L on the 5d2 and 85 1.8 on the 7d. That is something you cannot do with a 5d3.

Owning both a 7D and 5MKIII, the AF on the 5D MKIII is significantly ahead of the 7D, found I have a higher rate of keepers for fast moving sports.

I vote for the 5D3 vs the 5D3+7D thread.. And then the answer will be the latter... That way you can do things like put a 35L on the 5D3, and an 85 1.8 on the 7D... I don't know why someone would look between a 6D and a 5D3 and choose the 6D.

Ummm...maybe $$$. If $$$ don't matter, why stop at the 5d3 and not buy the 1dx?

I believe the af on the 5d3 is more customizable than the 7d. I don't believe its faster. If i paid 3 grand for one it may make me believe. I am not saying I am right, but what i think. By the way i would love a 5d 3, so not putting it down

.. I don't know why someone would look between a 6D and a 5D3 and choose the 6D.

It's still too early to tell but I can think of a couple reasons. For those of us that do not need fast AF but are more interested in image quality, early indications seem to show that the 6D image has been improved especially at higher ISOs. Another reason is price, the 6D is significantly less and if you toss GPS into the mix, it is more than significantly less. Size and weight may be another reason. Some of us actually like smaller and lighter as it's easier to pack and carry around. Bottom line, the 5DMkIII is a nice camera but it's looking like the 6D will be as well. Each has it's areas where it does best and neither are the all around answer.
