With Canon 500mm F/4.0 IS lens which body 7D or 5D2?
Feb 24, 2010

I've got a chance to use a 5D2 along with a Canon 500mm F/4.0IS at an airshow in a few weeks. I was planing on using just my Canon 70-200 F/2.8IS with a Canon 1.4TC on my 7D.

Then I got to thinking would it be better to shoot the 500 on the 7D body with the faster frame rate and use the 70-200 on the 5D2 body to capture the close-in stuff.

I haven't shoot at an airshow before - haven't been to one in years so I don't really remember what other people have been using.

Any advice?

TIA
