Let me start by saying hello sdp community! I have a 70-200 2.8 and a 17-40 4; My question is I have a 7d currently and I'm being told that I should upgrade to full frame so I can take full advantage of my glass, that my wedding pictures will look way better even if I trade my 7d for a 5dm1. Is it really that big of change? I'd be losing some mega pixels some iso and focus points (but I always use center and recompose) and I feel like I'd go back instead of ahead. I'm currently a student so saving up for a newer body is pretty hard. anyway while reading the book I remember a video that had a girl with a 12 mp full frame nikon and she said she loved it, they also said that 12mp is plenty. I'd love to read your opinions! Love the book and she show!

Advantage goes to FX when it comes to low light/indoor settings when using higher ISO. You will have much cleaner images.

 There is an advantage in going to a full frame camera it has a larger dynamic range, However the 7D will work fine with those lenses. I use mine all the time, you just need to be careful in lower light situations. Practice raising your ISO in small steps to see the limit of acceptable noise to you. Then stay below that and adjust your aperture and shutter speed as needed. The 70-200 f2.8 works great outdoors in low light. The 17-40 f4 is great indoors just use your flash when needed. Save your money and purchase a new body on your terms. When you feel your existing body can take you no further. Glass is always a better investment.
