Ok so yesterday I had a small wedding to shoot and decided to try out the newly acquired 5DC. I have a Canon 1D Mark IV that is my workhorse but I decided to give honors to the 5D and WOW i was not disappointed at ALL!!! The Files are so EASY to work with in LR3. I never once felt like I was limited by the older technology aside from battery life. I need to get a grip for it. Even Focus was dead on 98% of the time. The other 2% were once lights switched off for Dance. Thats where the Mark IV had to come out.

Hey!

I was affectionately recalling when, back in "the day" we began the discussion of "adopting" the nickname "Classic" for the 5D.

Some us had been tossing around the term loosly/affectionately for some time, prior to there being any news about the 5D2, but it hadn't "stuck".

Then the 5D2 got announced, in Sept. '08, which put an interesting spin around our beloved 5D -- for one thing, it got really popular with the reduced prices, and no less loved!

Then TheHoff put out the question here in POTN in Oct. '08 -- what "nickname" might be good for the 5D? A few different suggestions came out but those of us who had been happily referring to it as "classic" won the day, and the rest is "history".

The thread where this was discussed for a little while is here (not part of this thread):

https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=578455

Well, that's some fun history -- it took some searching to find it, I hope you all enjoy!

Hi all.

I considering picking up a 5D classic having read its a great full frame, but as you may notice from my sig I've a Sigma 17-50 DC - so far it looks to be my only obstacle (apart from ready cash of course)

Given all you good people here obviously have a 5D (or are getting one), what should I change this lens to to keep the same IQ, OS etc? I really want all my lenses to be of use on both fittings and never imagined when I got the 17-50 that I would even consider a FF!

i would sell the 17-50 and get a canon 28/1.8. :)

The lowest budget approach would be the Tamron 28-75, which on a FF has almost the exact same field of view as the 17-50, and is probably equally sharp, but without OS. You can get one used here at POTN for about $330, I think, making it quite a bargain. The Canon 24-70 or 24-105 are both excellent, but 3 to 4 times more expensive.

One thing to bear in mind is not just the "crop design" of those lenses, but also the fact that they were designed to give a "wide to low telephoto" field of view for crop bodies. For the 5D, a lens with that range of focal lengths would now give an "Ultra Wide" field of view to just a 50mm/55mm "normal" view.

So get a lens that gives the same range/field of view on the 5D that you get on the 60D with say a 17-50 or a "kit" 18-55, you will want something like what Al above is referring to.

Here in 5D land a lot of us love the Canon 24-70 and/or the 24-105 because to us that range makes for a great "walk-around" lens. But as was said, you can go less expensive...

Okay, cheers guys, thats pretty expensive glass here in the UK, even second hand.

Looks like full frame may have to wait until I've got more cash, as it stood I'd have had to sell the 85mm to get the 5D in the first place, but getting another lens and loosing the 17-50 range on the 60D would be a blow.

However thank you all, it was an exciting if short ride.

Hey, at least you have a view of things you didn't have before, and maybe over time your finances will be more "friendly". We all have to count our pennies in one way or another! Back when I bought the 5D Classic in '07, I bought it new, and it was also in that time framework that I was collecting my lenses for both my full-frame shooting and also my bird/wildlife shooting, and yeah, it all adds up -- a fairly expensive body, and then the glass you need...

Well, that all came to an end a while back, and I actually haven't made a photo gear purchase since, well, the end of '08. I've had to spend $$ to keep my computer gear functional, but fortunately my camera gear keeps taking great photos!
