7D vs 5DIII- there really IS a substantial difference!
Oct 26, 2012

Hi Gang:

I was a happy 7D user, have been agonizing about going full frame for a good while (a friend lent me a D700 which generated "full frame lust), and finally decided to “go for it”.
I got the 5D III 2 days ago, and shot a live performance at a studio with it last night, mixed fluorescent light at a rather low level.  I had little time to learn it, so set it as well as I could, and blazed away at the rapidly moving performer, ISO 6400, shutter priority at 1/400, with my new 24-105 f4 L lens, and prayed for the best.
I looked at the images last night, and they are among the best I have ever shot, with one of 255 unsharp!  I used my usual Lightroom imports, but the sharpness, contrast, colors were so good that I had to dial back both clarity and vibrance to avoid over processing!  Dynamic range was better, and noise was easily controlled in Lightroom.  I wish I had made this decision long ago, but plan to really enjoy this machine NOW!
