Can a 5DMII user be happy with IQ 7D for wildlife?
Jul 29, 2011

I am doing a two month trip out west with a 3 week stop in Yellowstone(starting 9/13). I am debating the purchase of a 7d for wildlife to provide a little more "reach", faster AF, and more fps. My concern is that I will not be happy with the IQ . If you have experience with a 5DMII/7d, combination, I would appreciate your thoughts. I have the following Canon lenses on the telephoto side.

70-200 f2.8 L IS II
100-400 f4.5-5.6 L IS
300 f4 L IS
1.4x TC III

I normally rent a 500mm for Yellowstone trips, but it is a little pricy to rent for two months.

Thanks for your help.
