Neat Image...

Coming from the 5DII to the 7D I was at first alarmed at the noise on the 7D. I bought a copy of Neat Image and now I'm good at 1600 ISO and below. I've since added the 5DIII and love it.

However, for birding I still use the 7D about 85% of the time. When I do use the 5DIII it is not because of the noise of the 7D but the superior AF of the 5DIII.

Even on the 5DIII I still need/like to use Neat Image for noise on most shots. But using the 7D, it is a life saver. Noise Ninja (and others) would probably work too.

If you take a P&S along for convenience, NI also works wonders on those noisy shots.

My hope for the 7DII (or whatever the successor is called) is that it has a 5DIII like AF and better high ISO / low light performance with the AF being the most important. But I can work with the noise if it remains.
