| p.1 #16 · p.1 #16 · I've been told that the 5d3 is so much better than a 5d2 but how does it compare to a 1d2or3 |
I've had a 5D2. I now have a 5D3 and a 7D.
If money is an issue, I think the 7D is a fantastic choice for sports, especially if it's daytime work (where high ISO is not really necessary).
I still will go to the 7D for BIF (over the 5D3), and find it quite usable at ISO1600 (often necessary, even in sunlight, to get the fast shutter speeds necessary).
The 5D3 is overall a much better camera, but the much higher pixel density of the 7D (not all usable, since the IQ of the 7D isn't up to 5D2/5D3 standards), and the faster burst rate (8fps is noticeably faster than 6fps, and will increase your keeper rate), makes the 7D better for fast action, focal-length-limited situations.
