7D v 1D mk3
3 months ago

Hi Canon users. At the moment I am seriously thinking about "jumping ship" and considering Canon. The two cameras I am considering are the 7D or the 1D MK3 and I have fancied both for some time. Both are currently available at the same or similar price although the 7D would be brand new. There are a couple of 1D's available which are listed as Blue Spot? and have between 54k and 88k shutter actuations.

The areas that concern me are comments on 7D noise. Various comments on the net are varied but it sounds very similar to the Sony A77 which is another route I could take and still keep all my existing lenses etc. The 1D's however seem to take some flack for focusing issues.

I would be very interested in any comments especially from those who have used both.

My main subject is wildlife, both macro and distant and jumping ship would mean that I am looking at a different brand camera and probably a new long lens such as the Tamron 150-600 when available. For now I would propose keeping my A700 mainly for the macro work.

Being retired I don't have a big budget unfortunately.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.

Denis.
