Do you still shoot an "old" body?

You should see my 70-200 II on my XT :lol:.

Yep, I've borrowed the 70-200 II for the XTi, one of the reasons why I bought the 70-200 f4 IS instead. Too heavy for my liking :P

As Doc would say, "weight has nothing to do with it" :p.

The image quality of the 70-200 II really blows me away. Then again, I'm the type that would lug around an 8x10 camera for better image quality if I could afford it.

I shoot with 4~5+ year old bodies, I love the "it just works for me" feel. Don't really need all the new bells and whistles of new bodies (maybe except for high native ISO), I'm literally stretching what the 5D classic can do at low light (that requires at least 1600 ISO) with fast lenses and some techniques. I'd probably use the 5D and 1D IIn till they fall apart.

Is T2i considered an old/extinct model already? :(

The 70-200 F4 IS holds its own in terms of IQ. But the problem is if it's too heavy, it'll be at home and that will defeat the purpose for owning it in the first place :)

No such thing as weight if it means better IQ. I'll carry 5+ more pounds if it means creamier bokeh, sharper focused areas, more image pop, etc...

I still use my 20D - it's the camera that sits on top of the fridge for quick shots.

I would most likely be but my 20D died and I used it as the excuse to get the 7D I really wanted through Canon's Loyalty Program. My 11 year old shoots on a 10D that I picked up for $100 and it's great for him to learn on.

Sure, if it makes or breaks your photos for you. To each his own.

I'm using my second 10D, which was recently refurbished by Canon. It does what I need and does it very well. I'll upgrade someday but not until the 10D is ready for retirement or I find a super good deal on a 7D or 5D.

I shoot with a 40D, 20D, and an XT. They are all in top working order and are a pleasure to use. I'm thinking of converting the XT to infrared. (or just selling it.) I can't really afford to upgrade but I'm shooting with these and don't see any reason to upgrade.

Does the 5Dc count as old?

Announced over six years ago? I'd say yes.

I occasionally break out my old d30 (no, not the 30D) - it's an old clunker, but still produces pretty reasonable images.
It was a A$3000 body when it came out. Now I wouldnt get $30 for it.
