Yes, I suffer severely from "annalysis paralysis"! Two weeks until the current rebates may end, so I guess I have to make a decision soon. The info from your question has been helpful.

no need to suffer - the 5D II is a very fine camera at ISO 3200 - this image was taken last weekend at ISO 3200 with AF in the vey last second before the flame was over - good enough I guess

Great exposure:-D

Kind regards


I bought the 300 f/2.8 II instead of a 5D III or D800(E) plus equivalent 70-200 f/2.8 - same price but dramatically better quality for shots where you need 300 or 600 mm

It's all about the lenses - I would always vote for the lenses as long as the camera is FF or something very close to FF - 1.3x is something I'd be willing to accept too.

The 7D II is rumored with a 1.3x sensor - make it 20 to 28 MPixel and I am seriously considering this body for sports and action - make it on the level of the 5D II price and I buy it in a heartbeat (if my bank account is in the right condition that time)
