If you owned a 7D and then a 5D Mark III...I'd really love to hear your experiences. I know the basics, of course, that the 5Diii is full-frame, better in low light, more AF points, and has less noise; I know the 7D has better reach and a snappier (but more complicated) AF system that makes it great for action.

But I'm interested in hearing your personal observations and experiences if you owned a 7D and then added a 5Diii. Did one camera or the other suddenly become a backup? Or do you still take each one out for specific purposes? When you hold each camera, what is the first thing that comes to mind? What's the most meaningful difference to your work between the cameras? Do you see them as complimentary, or evolutionary?


I have both. If I'm birding or shooting shooting sports then my 7D comes out. All other the 5D3. When I shoot the occasional wedding the WA lenses go on the 5D and the 70-200 on the 7D. I find my 7D does an awesome consistent job.
