Maxxum 7D as a cheap backup to the A77?
Jan 4, 2013

I know there are at least a few people who use a 7D as a backup to their Sony Alpha, but obviously it's a cheaper alternative to spending $800+ on a backup with the same resolution & features.

Does this make sense at all as far as a quick fix until I can afford a match to the A77? I've read the 7D is good, but it's dated.

The one aspect that would bother me is making sure the white balance between both cameras match as much as possible. I've read the 7D AWB has problems in artificial light.
