I haven't moved out yet, just observing. Thanks to all that have already contributed, obviously people have different opinions, but that's the point, right?

I did have a question about the shooting technique. Since these gyms I'm shooting in have a wide range of lighting (see examples with bay doors having great natural light, but darker as you go in the gym) should I not use the auto ISO? I select the shutter speed for fast moving athletes and I select the aperture to let as much light in and keep the ISO down, but like I said, CF gyms can have a huge range of light. Anyway, I'm still 2000+ on the ISO and when I crop, it's not as detailed as I want. I attached a photo to illustrate


I don't use the Sigma for the gym, I use the 50/1.4...but you're saying it doesn't have good IQ? I do realize if I go FF then I'll need to get rid of the Sigma and Canon 18-135. I'm fine with that and actually another reason why I'm leaning towards the 5Dii (I was already going to get some L glass to replace the 18-135)

I WOULD print canvases bigger than 30" so that sounds like another reason to go 5D

again, thanks for everyone's input so far...
