Anyone here used / chosen 7D2 over 6D for wedding? Please share sample and experience under reception lighting condition.

I am debating between pairing either 6D or 7D2 with 5D3. I see pro & con in both and can't make up my mind just yet.

Thanks for sharing in advance!

Do you need that fast frame rate? If not I'd go for 6d Everytime. I photograph weddings and would opt for good low light and Bokeh over ease of use anyday. I know the 7DII ISO performance is better but it's still not like current ff.

^^^ In addition to frame rate, there are extra reach, 65 cross-type focus points, 1/8000, dual cards, customization viewfinder, in viewfinder level. It could be a better companion for the 5D3 instead of the 6D. Based on all reviews so far, I don't think the ISO capability is as good as 6D &5D3 but if it is better that 5D2 then I will be happy to pair it with 5D3.

Well, as my signature states, I use a 5D3 haha. I would take a 5D3 over a 6D for every type of shoot. But if I had to choose between the 6D and 7DII as my only options for a wedding, the 6D has what I need. I started shooting weddings with a 7D. It's a great camera but lacks the low light performance for weddings. That's why I almost immediately upgraded. Haven't looked back since.

^^^ I agree. One body, it will be 6D over 7D2 but I am looking for 5D3 companion.

What is your other camera / backup body for the 5D3? Please don't tell me that you do not have a 2nd body while shooting wedding.

haha. When I first started we had three photographers and a 5D3, two 5D2s, a 5D, and two 7Ds. Now there are two photographers and two 5D3s, a 5D2, and a 5D. No camera is really a "backup", as they all have different lenses on them used for quickly capturing different wedding elements, however, any of them could work as a backup if needed. The two 5D3s are our main cameras for sure though.

^^^ This for me. I have 2 additional 5D3's so i think this will be a great fit for me. I shoot 20-25 a year So i know the value of FF v/s crop. Lots to be said for what Tigerkn just said

All the time. Especially shooting with a fast prime outside. I have to have 1/8000

I married a woman instead of a camera, and I have to say I don't regret the decision one bit! Great choice!:p

It's Friday BTW.....sorry if I'm a bit off on the humor.

Me! This isn't wedding specific, but if you are trying to use large apertures in good light having a high shutter speed capacity is nice. A stop is....a stop.

That said, this is not exactly a super critical feature as a lot of the time, when the light is so bright that you are looking at something like ISO 100, f/1.4 and 1/8000 you are also starting to have bad shadows etc.
