I have been waiting for the 5D Mark III camera announcement for quite awhile, and must say that I am so far impressed w/ the specs so far. The higher frame rate, better low light performance and higher IQ would be a very welcome addition. The only downside is the price. I have found my 60D to be limiting w/ regards to hitting the buffer when shooting sports or when shooting in low light. My original plan was to keep the 60D as a back-up and buy the new 5D MarkIII, but I am only a hobbyist and am having a hard time justifying $3800 for a camera body. So here in lies my dilemma. I hadn't thought in the past that upgrading to the 7D would be a worthwhile upgrade, but I am starting to re-think that. Would the 7D be a decent upgrade? It has a higher frame rate as well as dual processors so, I doubt I would be hitting the buffer very often. Is the image quality and low light performance going to be better than the 60D? Right now the 7D is selling for $1400 for the body only. I can sell my 60D for close to $1000 w/ the grip to friend. So it would be a fairly cheap upgrade. Once the prices of the 5D Mark III come down in the next year or so, I will still more than likely pick up one for all of the reasons stated above, and keep the 7D as my back-up. Hockey season is just winding down, but motocross is just around the corner and I would like to not be limited by the 60D for this season. Sorry for the wall of text and for asking about a topic that has been covered a bit in the last few days, but I look through those theads and did not see the answers I was looking for. Thanks in advance for your replies. Brent.
