Re: 5D MkIII + 7D?

I own both the 7D and the 5D mk III. The 6 vs 8 fps is noticeable. But, 6 is acceptable to me. I wouldn't want it any slower.

What I do, is use my 5D mk III for when i shoot indoor sports (volleyball and basketball) since high ISO is paramount to me in that situation.

Then when outdoor sports season starts and I'm shooting track and baseball/softball I switch to my 7D. Outdoors, where I have good light, the 7D's extra "reach" is nice. Switching between the two cameras, the difference in fps is certainly noticeable. But I don't think the 6 fps is too slow.

For me it's a great combination. And I don't find the 6 fps limiting. Would I like 8 fps on the 5D mk III? Sure! But 6 is acceptable.
