New here.. 7d mark ii vs rebel t7i! Wildlife

Not sure if this is the right place to post this! Recently bought a Canon rebel T7i... really into wildlife and birds!!! Was considering selling and buying a 7d ii 

 

Is this a wise decision? I know the 7d is older but has a faster fps

but will the lower MP cause an issue?

"Personally, I think I like the usage of '35mm equivalent' instead."

 

That is because you like me, I admit it, come form FF or 35mm days.  We think 35mm!  It is how we learned. However, think of a person that never used a FF or 35mm camera. Crop factor is meaningless.

 

"they may search around and see 24mm mentioned alot."

 

True because it has gotten so ingrained.  The advertising departments doesn't help this situation either.  A person that bought a Rebel knows how their kit, 18-55mm lens works.  If they want a wider lens it needs to be under 18mm. Oh, but you can't do that you must consider the "crop factor".  Because your 18mm lens is really a 28mm lens but if you buy a 24mm it is really a 38mm lens.  When just knowing how your 18-55mm looks on your Rebel and buying a 10-22mm. No crop factor necessary.

The image quality of Canon L glass is amazingly sharp compared to the majority of their  consumer lenses.  Enjoy it.

It looks like you are well on your way.  A tip, make sure you critical focus on the birds head.  Especially the eye if you can.
