5D VS 7D: Noise Performance?
Feb 11, 2012

I shoot a 5D, and I've been considering longer, faster lenses for low light work, such as on-stage plays and dance. This represents only a small minority of the photography I'm interested in, so I'm trying to balance the benefits with the cost. From that perspective, I'm wondering if it might be more practical to buy a 7D body and use shorter lenses. The question is, how does the current best crop body (7D, I presume) hold up regarding noise when shooting at ISO 1600 and 3200? Has anyone here compared both bodies firsthand at these ISOs?
