The camera i had prior was an FF and very limited on ISO and MPs which is why im stuck in the past i guess.
the more m looking into it, the more im considering a used 1Mk1 or preferably a 1Mk 2

Canon 450D (love this for its simplicity and HUGE LCD screen).

What FF camera did you have before? I can't believe you are considering a Canon 1D or 1D Mk II. They are VERY old cameras now.

I don't think you will like going from a 450D (12mp, simple, and HUGE LCD) to a 1D (4mp, complex, and tiny LCD) I know I wouldn't.

I didn't realize Fuji made FF bodies.

even on my 16-35 . its not as wide. a crop is still a crop on any mm.

The 16-35 on either of those cameras will not be as wide as the 11-16 would be on your current camera.

And you'll probably not want to go over ISO 400. :p

I dont think your understand what he is saying. If you currently don't feel comfortable going higher than 1600ISO then you REALLY won't be comfortable with it on a body as old as the 1DmkII.

Honestly I took the time to read through this entire thread and I must say you are lucky to have people being this willing to continue conversing about some of these issues you are having as I feel much of what your saying is contradicting itself.

Take this opinion coming from someone who went out, purchased a 7D last year when it came out as my previous Nikon D70 was outdated big time. I wanted to jump to FF of course, but the advantages the 7D offered for the price was unbelievable compared to much of the competition. Also I shoot a wide mix of things, majority of it being high-speed automotive photography. I have now been shooting with the 7D for a year now and LOVING every minute with the camera. A month or so ago I felt the itch again to try jumping to a full-frame body as I wanted to begin to expand my portfolio away from the automotive world and into things like portraiture, landscape, and still-life, but knew I did not want to spring for the 5DmkII as it was entirely to much money to be spending on a second body already so I started doing my research on the 5D Classic.

Well needless to say I purchased my 5D Classic about a week ago now for 1000$ CDN /w battery grip, two batteries, all manuals, all cables, and the charger and strap in FLAWLESS condition with about 7K shutter actuation's on it (Not bad for a 5 year old camera) Anyways I threw on my 20-35mm F2.8L and instantly my heart melted.....

Yes maybe the LCD screen is horrible looking, and yes the AI Servo is not the fastest (Not even close to my 7D) but the 5D Classic has this very genuinely unique feel to it's images it produces no matter what glass you are using and it just makes you smile when you plug your CF card into that reader and upload :-)

I can tell you right now that in low-light obviously my 5D Classic does not outperform my 7D but even at 3200ISO FF or not FF, technology has come LEAPS and BOUNDS since the era of lowISO capability that you have been talking about. Before my 7D I was just like you, I wouldn't DARE going over 800ISO on my D70 even though it could manage 1600....now I'll crank it up to whatever I need. With everything esel set right you should still capture an excellent image.

Bottom line, from the sounds of it you should look into the 5Dc. High ISO capability, FF for your lenses, and affordable!

Here's my 5Dc /w 20-35mm F2.8L (Which may I add is a 15 year old lens in itself) @ 3200ISO or (H) Setting on the 5Dc....my garage is almost pitch black and these are the images you can produce!
