1.4 extender Mk 1 vs 11 or 111 and conundrum
Apr 6, 2013

I have just moved to a 5d and, whilst  I love it, I might miss the extra reach my 7d gives. I have not yet sold my 7d, but  I know I should!

Here is my conundrum and I would appreciate your views.

Do I keep the 7d just for nature shots? I have a 100-400  and a 1.4 mk1. I hardly ever use the extender. On the 5 I lose reach so:

is the 5 d cropped equal to an uncropped 7d....so giving similar reach?

Is. Here much diffence between the extenders...would I benefit from upgrading to a newer extender?

what else should I consider?  In many ways I would rather ell the 7d as I am unlikely to carry 2 bodies and I will favour the 5D ( mk 111) I am sure!
