I have a 7D and a 5D mk3. The mk3 I bought mainly because the top wheel on my 40D was slipping when changing settings, that was my backup camera.

The 5D mk3 is a fantastic camera, the AF is a dream to use...I love it!...but if I were you I would start looking at the Einsteins if you want to get serious with your studio work. I have 4 Einsteins now plus one AB 1600, I do a lot of studio and location work and the 7D has been a great camera. I did have issues with focus, which has never been the best even now.

Start with one Einstein first, believe me it won't be long before you want 2, then 3 etc. Trigger the Einstein with a Cactus 4 until you get the cash for the Cybersync gear. That's what I did for nearly 2 years!

Get some lighting...get creative, then if you have some spare cash in the future if you aren't buying more lights get a mk3. Nothing wrong with the 7D in the studio I can a sure you!

The 7D from my experience needs more light to perform at it's best, compared to a 5Dc or a 5D mk3 for example, if you push for shadow recovery on a 7D there will be detail yes and more noise YES. using strobes takes away the shadow issues, I agree with the above post.
