It's all really an exercise in what I should lust after, since as of right now, I am broke :rolleyes:

The 7D is realy a much better camera apart from the sensor size - so if you need every last bit of IQ, high ISO noise and shallow DOF get the 5D else try the 7D.

Remember lenses tend to be bigger heavier and more expensive for FF too.

Nice shot by the river RJD, like the position of the bloke on the path between the trees. What do you mean by 5D having shallower DOF than the 7D. For the translating Nikon user, isn't the 5D full frame and 7D crop?
What does the sensor size have to do with the DOF? I thought the sensor locations/film plane where the same distance from the lens mount in either body and DOF was just down to the lens aperture.

Looks like spring is here and Woodsy is feeling clucky

Its all to do with the circle of confusion (and print/view sizes).

But in practical terms if you frame a subject the same on a FF camera vs a aps-c crop ( say 5D2 with a 24L and a 7D with a 35L) shoot both at f1.4 the 5D2 will have 1.2 stops or so less DOF than the 7D - or about half the plane of focus.

This alows you to get much thinner DOF than a crop camera can, usefull for subjects that arnt very close.

Also steps up again to MF and large format.

A guy I know just bought a 7D, and a 15mm 2.8f EF fisheye to go with it, 1.6x effective crop makes it a 24mm, just looks like a zoomed pic with EPIC lens distortion, so much fail :lol:

I got given from my family a Canon 450d (with 18-55mm lens) for my birthday a few weeks ago. Its my first camera so I'm still getting the hang of it (although my dad is a pro so I've used his cameras before). Heres some shots I've taken over the last few weeks.

Thanks man, I did not know that. Learnt something new today.
Also means I should be even more pissed at my inability to focus on the eyes at f1.4
