If you love IQ and that is all that matters to you then welcome to the FF game

if you love technology and the features and screen on your camera.

the IQ does really makes it for me. my cousin has a 5dc and i was using it today to test it out but the screen does not bother me. there's just something about FF images and smooth bokeh that gets the attention. :confused:

idk moving from a rebel t1i to a 7d didnt really felt like a huge jump. then after using my cousin's 5dc for a while, it made me realize that FF is the way for me. i dont shoot much sports or anything that moves fast. mostly portraits of my family and some urban photography.

Awesome.
To many people get stuck in the " gotta have the newest thing" rut that they forget what Image Quality means.

I have a D700, 12 MP FF and I love it. :D

By Sigmalux do you mean the 50mm 1.4?

well since i dont have enough money to buy my own lineup of holy trinity of primes, ill save up for a sigmalux since i guess the 50mm FL is pretty much most usable esp. on a FF sensor. hehe
