Re: Any reason NOT to move from 7D to 5D Mark III

You listed my reasons for not going to 5D.

I contemplated moving up to the 5D several times. I really like the full frame vs cropped. However, I always talk myself out of the 5D for a few reasons. The 7D's 8 fps is important to me for sports. The 7D's built-in flash has saved the day (actually night) on several occasions. The pop up flash can also trigger the 580EX, which is quite useful. Thirdly, I like Canon's EFS lenses. Yes, I said that out loud. I Especially like the 10-22mm and the 17-55mm IS. Canon doesn't make a full frame 17-55mm IS equivalent. The 17-55 IS is my favorite lens and I know I would regret loosing it if I moved up to the very appealing 5D. Now, if canon makes the 24-70mm with IS I would be even more tempted to switch to the 5D.
