7D or 1D Mrk III for a second Body (owners opinions)
Mar 4, 2010

I am looking at either a 1D Mrk III or 7D for a second Body to go alongside my 5D mrk II. (sports is my passion but can make enough money off it yet) I have used the 1D Mrk IV and loved it but can stretch the budget that far yet. I am asking specifically for people that have used both and what they would choose and why. Thanks so much for your input. There's not to much difference between the price for the second hand unit or the New 7D. Thanks for your input

Concerns I have already

7d Only used briefly was dissapointed by the sharpness - had to sharpen twice as much in pp to get near the 5D

1D mrk III, resolution and the rear lcd panel lacks when compared to current models

Guess thats what I get for Champagne tastes on a beer budget
