Hello All, I am thinking of upgrading to a Canon 70D from a Canon 40D (about 7 yrs old) and need some advice. One of my main goals is to learn how to shoot cars (Static and in motion such as race cars). Right now this is purely a hobby but I am very passionate about cars and would love to get good at it. In talking with someone from my local camera shop who was very friendly and knowledgeable (No sales pressure at all) He recommended the 70D and a 15-85mm EFS lens which would allow me to get a wider angle on the cars while being closer. I really like the updated features on the 70D and have the money for both the camera and the lens (Body 999.00 and Lens 599.00 after $100 instant rebate) which I don't mind spending but am wondering if I should maybe get just the lens first and then the body or both together. Also, he suggested to stick with canon because I have been using mine for a while and have a few lenses which will fit the 70D. So, to try and make this short would this be a good course of action to take? I have been on these forums for a while now and there are a lot of very talented people. I would greatly appreciate any advice in this area. While I am definitely an amateur I would love to get good at taking all type of cars and vehicles (inside and out) as well as capturing the action at a lot of live motorsport events. As a side note I have a chance to attend the 24hrs of LeMans next year in France so that would be something I would like to work towards. Thank you for your time!
