I wanted to help new folk by putting this one, and maybe answer a wee query too.
Anyone looking to upgrade to a 7D from a Rebel series. I'd have a really good think about why you want to do it. Do you shoot sports a lot? Do you strive to be National Geographic's next big thing? (Buy a 1Dx) No seriously unless you are needing to be one of the above, then a 7D will be wasted on ya.
I thought I needed it, I thought I had time to sit and wait on wildlife to do its thing, and I certainly don't do sports enough to warrant having a 7D. It's probably a bit too 'pro' for me.
My situation leads my to thinking that my 70-200 2.8L IS II would just so suit being on a FF camera. My future shoots include 3 weddings in the next year, events and parties. I feel the lens is being held back by the 7D's older sensor.
It's looking like I probably have the wrong body for the job, but FF is costly and I think if I tried hard I could manage to trade against a used 5D mkII.
I'm all about IQ, and low noise. It's more important to me than I thought. I like a lot of data to work on in LR/PS so do you reckon I'm going to miss a 7D?
Has anyone else felt they missed the 7D once it was gone?
Feel free to e-slap me or flame, It might do me good for making the wrong decision. However, I want to think about this logically now. Buying this L lens has really opened up my world, Just not enough FOV for my liking.
