excellent enthusiast camera.
on January 24, 2014
Upgrading from a rebel xti I'm very happy with this purchase. I bought all my glass before getting decent body. I was split between this and the 6D. I do wish it was better in low light but it has other features that make up for it. Don't get me wrong it is still a good performer in low light. I can live using my 580 exii flash for those low light moments. I don't shoot weddings therefore I don't have such a necessity for full frame. This camera has a very decent 7 frames a second. The touch screen is excellent and acts just as a smart phone. The fact that it articulates in every direction is also a plus for those overhead shots or video. The wireless function is also nice for viewing pictures and deleting them in the field without a computer or having to hold the camera. It also comes in handy for sharing pictures on-the-go. Another nice feature is that it's not as heavy as the 7D or the 5D. Overall this camera is hard to beat at this price level given all the features it offers. I have it paired with a 24-105 f4L which has come to life off of the rebel. My 70-200 f2.8L is ii now has a camera attached to it since it only had a "Glorified lens cap" with the xti. I have not tired my 50mm 1.4 or my 18-200. I know I won't be disappointed. I got some amazing shots of my family on our last vacation and hope to capture many more moments.
