5DIII > 7DMKII ?
5 months ago

I know the 7DII isn't exactly announced yet, but everyone knows it's coming. I had the 7D before and really loved it. Sold it, and 'upgraded' to the 5DIII. Fantastic camera of course, and got it paired now the 24-105L and the 70-200/F2.8 IS II. But somehow I never really fell in love with it. I now even rarely use it and tend to grab my RX100M3/A6000 (Sony's). Not sure why, of course the slr is bigger but I never got into it.

When browsing through my lightroom catalog, I always feel I like the pictures I got from the 7D+17-55IS a LOT more than what I'm getting from the 5DIII. Maybe that's because it was a F2.8 lens, although the 24-105/F4 should be about the same on a fullframe. But somehow, for me, it isn't.

Adding that I rarely do (paid) photowork any longer, so investing in very heavy, expensive FF glass isn't exactly an option. I'm very much considering to sell the whole set and wait for the 7DII to arrive and couple that with the 17-55IS I loved and maybe get the Sigma 50mm/1.8 ART for indoor shots. I don't need the reach of the 70-200 anymore (no more weddings).

What do you guys think? A good choice, or stupid?
