| p.1 #8 · Second body for sport activities |
I currently using a 5D MKIII for all of my photography activities, and since my 9 year-old son doing a lot of sport activities (karate, soccer, and swimming), I figure I need a second body to get an extra reach. Therefore, there are 2 cameras that come to my mind, 60D and 7D. Which camera do you think would serve me well for that kind of activities?
The current lenses that I own right now are 17-40mm/F4.0L, 24-70mm/F2.8L, 70-200mm/F2.8L IS II, 40mm/F2.8 STM Pancake, 100mm/F2.8L IS Macro, TC 1.4X III, and for sports shooting, I will definitely use the 70-200 plus...Show more →
forget the 60D, crazy to use that instead of the 5D3 for sports, poor AF, no micro-focus adjustment
even the 7D has much less trustworthy AF for sports than the 5D3 although it definitely does have more reach, at age 9 though reach might not be so big a deal, maybe better to slowly invest the money in another lens, by the time he is bigger the 7D will be totally yesterday's news, maybe start to a 300 2.8 of some sort (it also works pretty well with a 1.4x TC)
