Re: 5D for sports/children

To me the answer is 5D.

With the 5D, I shoot sports for our local newspaper(using a 100-400 canon lens), I shoot tons of pics of my grandkids playing and activities and I shoot family portraits.

Diff between 30D and 5D speed wise is two extra frames a second. The 5D still gives 3 fps.

We have a rebel XT and I considered moving up to the 30D(mostly because it's less $$$) from the XT...instead I went with the 5D. I'm really glad I made the move to 5D instead of the 30D.

BTW, I've used the 30D, very nice camera but that full frame is something else for both shooting sports and portraits...and plenty of pixels there to do cropping.

5D for me.

Also, there are a few thousand threads on this subject on different forums out there.

Best of luck in your purchase.
