5D Mark II vs. 7D
Nov 6, 2011

Hey everyone,

I am interested in buying a new body, and I'm considering either the 5D Mark II or the 7D. I currently use a 40D primarily with the Canon 400mm f/5.6L and Canon 100mm f/2.8L macro. I have been very happy with my results from these camera/lens combos, but I'm ready for an upgrade. My primary subjects are birds, wildflowers (macro), and butterflies (macro).

I've read that the AF is faster on the 7D and the added crop factor would be good for the telephoto. However, I am unsure which would be better for the macro lens. Any ideas?

I plan on keeping the 40D, so will still be able to use that for bird shots if people think that the 50D would be better than the 40D for macros. Thanks!
