Why don't you just step back a bit for a crop body? compared to a FF.

Re: 7D viewfinder SMALLER than 5D

What if you need more than equiv. 24mm but need f2.8? Can't get that with crop. As far as the VF, the 7D has a bigger, brighter VF than the 5D, and neither influences the image quality of either camera.

Although the magnification is lower, the 5D's viewfinder is still physically bigger than the 7D's (it's a smaller magnification of the bigger FF sensor area, and still ends up bigger).

What I was referring to was that it's 100% coverage vs. the 5D's 97%. The coverage is what's important, not the physical size of the VF.
