| p.1 #1 · Convert from Nikon - which body? |
Hey all. I'm working on slowly converting over to Canon (so the wife and I can share gear, plus I like new-to-me toys), but keep waffling about which body to get. I currently own a D200 that I've used for 6 years and have loved it. The wife has a 50D, but for around $350-ish more I'm seeing used 7Ds out there. I know there was debate between these bodies when the 7D first came out, but wanted to get a more current consensus.
I also know that the savings by getting a 50D could net me a lens, but I think I'm only going with a 3-lens setup for now, which will be as follows (once my Nikon gear sells):
Sigma 10-20 or Canon 10-22
Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 OS (already en-route)
Canon 70-200 f/4 IS
Is the 7D's AF worth the extra coin? The features of it seem more in line with the D200's AF. The video feature is not a must, but could be nice for filming the kids. I don't use flash often at all, but the commander mode on my D200 has been useful on occasion.
What say you, Canon guys in the know?
