I've been thinking about trying full frame for a couple years and finally bought a used 5D a couples weeks ago from another member on this site. I am shocked that I don't even have to sharpen the images. This is way more than I expected. This is straight out of the camera.

I just bought a gently used 5d as well. I'm very excited about the IQ compared to my 40d. I'm selling my 40d and keeping my 20d as a back up. It will be hard for me to go back to a crop camera.

The 5D has a weak AA filter.

I was amazed with the 5DII compared to the 40D and 7D regarding the difference in sharpening needed. It's very easy to over sharpen the 5DII image.

This. XXD cameras have stronger AA filters, so you get a less sharp image straight out of camera.

Can't you just change your sharpness settings in the camera and make them match?

Why do you need or not need an AA filter?

Wow, right this morning I was looking at some 40D vs 5D threads and now you place this one
I am so tempted to snatch a 5Dc, I would have to rethink my normal zoom situation
How are you feeling with the smaller screen and "slower" reaction of the new camera?
What lens are you using?
Congrats BTW, happy that you are thrilled with your new body

I shoot a pair of 40Ds currently. Have considered selling one and shooting 5D and 40D(nice for motorsports/track stuff).
