Im looking to add another camera body for weddings. Currently have a 5d classic. Lenses are 28-75 2.8 85 1.8 and 70-200 2.8 is. Im going to be adding a 17-40L and possibly a 50mm 1.4 or if i dont have enough cash a 1.8 aswell. I wanted the 5dII but can't come up with the cash (unless taxes are good) I've been really thinking about getting a 7d and if all goes well maybe sell the 5d and get the mkII. How's this combo? I've got a couple weddings booked for this yr and wanna have two bodies. If I were able to get the 7d how would you pair them, what lenses would you put with.what?

5DC + 28-75
7D + 70-200.

If/when you need UWA, swap the 28-75 out with the 17-40L.

I found that when shooting with a digic 3 and 4 chip I could see colour differences in my images. How about getting the 5D Mk 2 and picking up a 50D.

If you can't then the above is a good lens pairing.

5D2 and 7D is an awesome combo. That said, 5D1 and 50D is a pretty good 2nd best IMHO. I love my 50D's.

So you guys would choose 5d and 50d over the 5d and 7d?

I don't know why you'd choose a 50D over a 7D.

The 7D is definitely better than the 50D, so if you can swing it grab a 7D. I'm just saying in terms of bang for buck the 50D is almost as good at half the cost, so if getting a 50D frees up some $ for something else you need, I'd consider it.

Keep renting a backup until you can afford another full frame camera.

I wouldn't even consider a crop sensor cam if you already shoot full frame.

For many having a crop compliments their full frame cameras well. I appreciate having both. Personally I don't know why you'd bother getting a second full frame camera if you already have one.

Consistency.

I'd want both cameras to be exactly the same though, not just full frame. If I was the OP I'd be hunting for another 5Dc.

I'd rather have variety and flexibility over consistency. If you were just getting a back-up camera I would say it should be the same or similar as your main body (like a 5Dc for a 5DII) but if you're looking for a second body I'd rather have something I don't already have that compliments what I have well. I love have both a cropped sensor and full frame camera so if I need the reach, I can get it with my 7D (great when paired with the 70-200) and when I need wide angle I have my 5Dc that for you would pair great with the 28-75 or the 17-40.

I can't imagine life without 2 full frame cameras, but I can't imagine shooting weddings without at least 2 cameras and preferably 3.
