comment Are full-frame cameras bad for sports photography?
I don't think comparing the 7D and the 5D Mark II is fair. The 5D is not intended for sports - it is generally slow (including the AF system). Instead, you could look at the D700: It is similarly priced to the 5D and, with a battery grip, equally fast as the 7D.

Also: Can you tell me anything about the switching of the continuous/one-shot and the auto-choice/center-sensor AF mode? On my 450D, I need to press at least 2 buttons for each of those and cannot do the former without taking the camera down to look at the display. Is that better on the 5D/D700? Furthermore, I've heard the 5D has a very good system for saving different sets of settings. Is that correct? Does the D700 have anything similar?

Thanks for your answer! I did go to a store already, however, I don't think it can tell me how I will feel with the camera after working with it for one month. As a Canon-guy, I kind of drift through the Nikon menues unorientedly, discovering interesting stuff here and there, but I don't feel I fully grasp it.

comment Is high ISO useful for photography?
Good write-up! But you should include in your post that the exposure of the ISO 100 shot was corrected in post.

comment Is Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM Lens that much better than Sigma 24-70mm f2.8?
This comparison quite clearly shows the difference between the Canon and the Tamron: the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/…

comment Can manual focus be faster than autofocus?
@PeterT I'd choose a Leica with a few lenses over a car any day, but as a student, I simply can't afford it. However, as I want to try film photography anyway (see: photo.stackexchange.com/questions/9810/…) - is it possible to get a cheaper, used rangefinder when you look into the non-digital area? Would it be worth posting this as a question?

...and in addition, you'll have to re-learn for every lens. This certainly is impressive, but I doubt it's realistic for me to learn this ;)

@PeterT I think I pretty much understand it now... Only why are the Leicas so expensive? :-/

Can you tell me how the Leica Rangefinder AF works? I read something like making two lines meet... can you explain this to me in detail?
