Re: DXO 5D/5D2 vs 7D
In reply to MAC, May 28, 2012

Personally I believe 5D3 is more suitable than D800 to you for wedding photography. From what I have read, 5D3 AF edges out in very low light, much controllable file sizes that are matter when you shoot lots in one event, extreme shadow pulling is not important in wedding photog, no mention some best L lenses are only from Canon including your favorite 100L

you don't own 5D2 and probably not 24-105L as well.

not a setup where I see that it has much, if any advantage over crop in real shooting

Just you "see" not you have tried.

FF is for low light primes -- imo -- to get an advantage

Also in good light with either primes or zooms. Overwhelming shooters own both in all kind of photography including people shots and wedding said so.
