Can't decide on which one to get and want to hear experiences with each and which one you would buy. I do a lot of action shots of sprint car racing after dark in low light. I have an older Minolta 9000 and some lenses.

have you held each one?* The 5D is smaller and lighter - to me, the 7D felt way too big and heavy, but it depends on what you're used to.* If you like the feel of the 7D, then I'd buy it, since it's almost the same price as the 5D w/ that $200 rebate.

I'm also looking at the 5D and 7D. I'd prefer the 7D, even though it's about $200 more than the 5D with that $200 rebate. So I guess I just need to head to my local camera store and really get a feel for the both of them. :|
