I plan to purchase my first DSLR soon, and I pretty much thought I was going to get the 7D, as it suits my needs best. But now the new Mark III is coming out and looks pretty sweet, although costly. Since this is my first DSLR, I will need a good wide angle lens, battery grip etc.
My dilemma is that I plan to keep the camera for over 10 years and would like the latest technology. I have to keep in mind the cost of everything though. I am not sure which lens I will need yet since I am new to DSLR photography and the cost. I would like a good wide angle lens with little distortion. Not a fisheye, but a lens with about a 120 or 130 field of view. Wide angle shots make fish look bigger for magazines, something I plan to get into when I am happy with my photography.
Will the 7D be good enough to submit photos to fishing magazines or will the full frame Mark III be best?
Which wide angle lens would be best for each camera with little distortion? Sorry if this seems like a dumb question, but I am a total noob when it comes to DSLR photography, and many of you have a wealth of experience.
The 5D Mark III does look like a great camera with the latest technology and better weatherproofing than the Mark II. What do you guys think? Should I bite the bullet and spend the dough on the Mark III with the latest tech since I plan to keep it over 10 years? Or should I get the 7D (my second choice for my applications)?
Any advice on the bodies and wide angle lens would be greatly appreciated.
