Camera advice (1 Viewer)

Clive Watson

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit ampheta
So I find myself in need of a new camera. When I say new I don't mean brand new, that's out of my price range, forget all this 3 grand plus stuff. I was thinking something second hand maybe a couple of years old. My main priorities performance-wise are good flight photography capability and good high ISO performance. I was going to go for a 7d mk 2 but having read a few things here I'm not so sure any more that is the best choice. Any suggestions/advice as to what I should go for? It has to be Canon, all my lenses are Canon.

Many thanks in advance!

You may have answered your own question here Clive.
If it has to be Canon, which it does, the best choice for you is the 7D2 because it's the best that Canon have to offer for BIF that's in your price range.
Disregard any negative stuff that you have read, it's still a very capable piece of kit and would serve you well. ISO wise, I found it was good up to 1600.
