Hey so I have been lurking the recent dslr threads that have been on here the past few days trying to absorb the info before I decide to finally buy another camera. I used to have several mid range Canon cameras (50d, etc) but they were stolen a while back and I've just been borrowing from my nice brother for my photo shoots, which is getting a bit old. I was curious to what the experts in here would do with this choice. I don't have an obscene budget otherwise I'd just get the 5d mkII and be done with it, but I was checking out the specs on the 7d and the t1i, and was surprised at how good the t1i looks. Should I just pony up for the 7d and wait a little longer on more and better lenses, or will the t1i be good enough and I can supplement it with better glass? anyone have experience with either of these cameras? Thanks guys!!
7D looks pretty nice, feels pretty nice in your hand, too. No experience with it, though, but am personally looking at that or the 5DMkII (or if Nikon ever comes out with their D800).
the 7d does look nice. I am intrigued by the video mode on it. i suppose it would mean I wouldn't have to get a video camera in the near future either.
7d has more features (19pt autofocus or something) and maybe a little better low light capability, but its so much more expensive than the t1i. if you are going to spend that kinda cash, just get the 5dmkii. at t1i's price, you can buy a nice lens or two (50mm f/1.4 and maybe 135 f/2L)
I'm sure I'm the only one who thinks so, but the Pentax K7 is a damn nice camera for the money.
- i am sure it is, i have played with some pentaxes before, but i have some canon lenses already :Pspifflink
- I had 3 Pentax bodies (istDS, K100D, K10D), kept updating them hoping they'd improve AF and high ISO...raf
- I ended up getting a second hand 5D, just to try it. Sold all Pentax gear soon after that, never looked back...raf
- OK, I do look back sometimes, pentax with its individuality hype is a nice niche to be part of ;)raf
sweet, i am getting the t1i with the 18-55mm kit lens (there is an awesome black friday deal with the lens, might as well). maybe one day i'll be awesome enough to justify the purchase of a 5d mkII. now i can afford a 35mm fixed and some other cool stuff hooray!
compare canon's 35mm F2 to the 28mm F1.8, the 28/1.8 has very smooth AF....the 35mm F2 does not....
