I was hesitant to buy the 5d2 a while back and everyone kept telling me to repalce the glass or invest in other equipment such as lights. Im glad I replaced my 50d. I have been using it for months now and I was looking at my previous pics I took with my 50D and the quality is not there. I have been using teh same 24-70L lens and wow what a difference. Just wanted to share :)

Congrats on the change! I love my 5D2. Wouldn't trade it for anything, yet. :) keep shooting.

Thanks Suzy. I plan to also get a 7D for long distance (crop sensor) with better sensing.. but the 5d2 is more than enough.Just like you, I wouldnt trade it for anything. You can see my pictures on Facebook under my name, Edward Anzaldua. Im addicted to shooting now. lol. but its exhausting as well.

Welcome to the 5D2 owners club! You're going to love it! I made the change from a Rebel XT last year and haven't regretted a single photo on it!

Congrats on the 5D2 purchase!

I noticed the same thing when I upgraded when using a 28-70L. I had nothing but problems with the 28-70 on my 50D and 400D before it. It works perfectly on the 5D2. Personally I think that the lens is to heavy for the smaller/lighter cameras and most attempts at getting a sharp image were unsuccessful unless using MLU and a very sturdy and rock solid camera support.

Thankfully I only had 2 EF-S lenses that stayed with the crop cameras!

You'll find all your lenses will seemingly be 'upgraded' when used with the 5D2.

I'm curious why the "quality wasn't there" with your 50D. I'm interested in upgrading and the 50D is one of my options.

I would not think that quality is not there with the 50D. I had a ball with mine and miss it dearly. Maybe the op could elaborate

the 50D will be a good camera until you try something else better.

The 5D2's FF sensor captures more detail(sharper) and has a very good quality to the detail(eg. dynamic range, tonality,etc.)

I switched from a 50D to a 5Dc last year, and last week switched to the 5D2. I couldn't be happier, and yes...there is a huge difference in image quality between even the 50D and the 5Dc, let alone the 5D2.

However, that's not to say the 50D was/is bad. I loved mine, and I still do even though I don't have it anymore. It just lacked what I needed which the 5Dc filled mostly, and what the 5D2 has now filled fully. :)

I recently sold my 450D (last week) to my friend. I've been dying to do video, so that's kinda the main reason for myself, but also I noticed in my shots that I would get a lot of grain in the photos, even at 100% crop. It seemed like noise/grain/colour noise, and this was at ISO-100!!!

My next step will be the 7D mainly because of how well their priced at for the features they pack. 5Dmk2 would be my #1, but compared to the cost of a 5Dc they're quite steep. I think I rather spend a little extra and have a 7D and 5Dc backup for particular lenses.

5D2 is an amazing camera ... you will be very happy with it. The only time I might think a 7D is a better fit is for sports or fast action photography ... where the 5D2 framerates and auto focus could use an improvement. For everything else, 5D2 rules!

I had both a 40D and a 50D ... when I bought the 5Dm2, I sold the 40D.

Both the 5Dm2 and the 50D have their place and their preferred use in my opinion, decided upon by movement of the subject, distance to the subject and light available.

If the object is moving a lot, it's the 50D ... if there is not much light, the 5Dm2 ... and so on.

The OP could just be having the "ooohhh fullframe!!" sensation which I got when I got my 5dc. Almost stopped using my 50d, started using it again the other week and realised that whilst it might take different photos it still takes great photos. It was just my skills evolving during the time I was using the 5dc.

But yeah, if you can afford it get a 5dmk2 rather than a 50d. Thats something I would tell anyone, but rather get a 50d with L glass than a 5dmk2 with a nifty fifty.
