Re: 5dmk2 vs 7d with Canon 400mm f5.6

My point is that the 60D and 7D are very similar - I can't tell the difference in picture resolution. The 7D has a few features that make it good for sport otherwise I understand they have the same chip. But the 7D has supposedly better focusing (but not in my experience but I only ever use the central focusing point). For the sort of photography I do - wildlife I can detect no difference. Therefore I compare the 60D and the 7D with the 5D2 as these are the cameras I have experience with. I would still go with the 5D2 as I get a sharper picture when I crop.

By the way I have tried a 1.4 extender with a 300 2.8 and a 5D against a 7D with the 400 5.6. Not much in it. The 2 x extender is notably poorer with a 300 2.8. The extender did not work with the 400 5.6.
