Safari 5D and 1DMk4 or 5D2 and 7D
Feb 20, 2010

I'm going on a safari, I plan to take 2 bodies, one landscape/backup and one crop/faster focussing for animals. Do I add a 1DMk4 to my 5D or do I get a 5D2 and a 7D for less money? The money isn't that important, less weight would be nice, but maximising the quality of the pictures I capture is more important. Will the 1 series focussing speed make much difference over the 7D? I've never been to Africa before, I'm assuming that low light capability isn't too important for animals in Africa but high ISO for a faster shutter speed might be. The opinions of those who have used both the 7D and 1DMk4 (or earlier 1D versions) would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help
