i was and am a ‘5D ’ Admirer for a long time…and i do consider this body as a Classic…!!!

it’s always a true pleasure to follow the “5D CLASSIC admirers, assemble 1 2 3….5” and i have seen So many Great shots made with this body. My kudos to all of you…..;
Out of 1DsII… 1DsIII and 5D…. i ended up with 5D. Canon’s 1D series Bodies are amazing and if you ask me which body i am going to choose, my answer will be 1Ds II (new).

But for me “5D” will do just Fine……i believe if i am not good enough with my old 350D ( which is still clicking) i am Not worthy of a 1DsmkIII…!!!
i am into photography for nearly twenty years and have a tendency of getting “Institutionalized” with my equipment and that’s what happened with my 5Ds. The IQ it produce is just perfect for me and i don’t NEED anything better than this.

It makes me sad that the “Era” of the “Great 5D” will end.

So to All 5D lovers……what will be the next FF body from Canon that we can fall in Love with… ?
with kind regards….s Arman s.

With MF 135 2.8

IMAGE: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-WtNT-Ot1qxU/TqS6toaNZ7I/AAAAAAAAX1w/ViI4bkvLD4U/s720/_MG_7602.JPG

Purchased this lens to test how 135mm focal distance works for me. Little bit too long for practical use in my regular situations. I think, I'm going to get 100 F2.

The popularity of 5D will continue to increase with price getting little but lower.
It just going to be more ex-Rebel users compare to pros who left to 1DSx and MKII.
"The era" of any body lasts as long as Canon supports it and even after.
People still using 10D/20D.

Just a question to you 5D users...

I'm looking at moving up to a 5D from my XSi. I do a lot of Aviation work so my only real concern is about the AF system. Will it have much trouble locking on to jets etc?

If anyone has any examples that would be rad. Especially if there's any cropped shots from a 70-200f4L. ;)

I hear you! :) Cheer up, I think the "Era" of 5D is far from over!

For me 5D is perfect camera too. All lenses are manual focus; I don't need advanced AF, metering, etc., features for AF users. Basic camera features. Sensor from top of line, however.

Now if Canon take sensor from latest 1Dxxxx, put into simple affordable body -- same as was done with 5D -- I think Canon will get same success as 5D generated for same reasons -- there is high consumer demand for affordable top quality images. Imho Canon would be better off splitting off the 5DII product line into dSLR built for video, with proper chip cooling and ergonomic features specific to video stresses.

Center point ai servo is pretty darn good at tracking moving aircraft, but even with a 100-400 I rented for an airshow I wanted more reach. 200mm is not long on ff.

I have more at home, particularly of faster flying jets. I had no problem with it, specifically because at that distance and the 7.1 aperture i used, its not hard for any focus system to keep up with IMHO. I suppose if I were closer or using a much longer lens i might have seen some problems. I will say, if I had my 1dII at the time it would have made life a slight bit easier.

Didn't know the T-birds flew at Miramar.
