I sold my 10-22 and bought a used 17-40 to match my new 5D which should be here this week. This will be the first L glass I've ever purchased (rented a few)

i made the mistake of using the 17-40L on my 7D and i personally wasn't not that impressed by it. focal range sucked for a walk-around as it was a bit too short at 40, but the 17mm was nice.

i should have kept that lens but i didn't think i was going to buy a 5Dc the next week :)

Hey all you who are new to the 5D Classic!

Besides a welcome to this thread and a congrats for getting a fine body, lemme ask you -- despite whatever you may have heard, did you know that the 5D in AI Servo Mode is actually capable of tracking/panning moving objects?

It can, and can get good results!

These were shot handheld out of an open car window with the 300mm f/2.8 lens and a 2x TC -- I'm including the first in the set to show that it ain't easy getting the framing right when you shoot long and have to work out a car window:):

And planes, passing by, shot with the 70-200 f/2.8 IS with close crops so you can count the rivets!:

It boils down to: use the right glass and the right skills and the 5D can do great things!

Looking to pick one of these up. How does this body perform at higher ISO? Specifically between 1000-1600 in low light such as a car garage or night time photography? Will be used with fast primes/zooms.

I hope to be able to keep up with you guys on here. :D Still have a couple days to wait for my "new" 5D to arrive. Waiting is the worst part. :lol:

Hey Rivest, nice to see you over here! You made the plunge. Guess you won't need me to do that test for you, you can do it yourself!
About higher ISO, 1600 is a piece of cake. It cleans up beautifully in lightroom, no muss, no fuss.
