So, I gathered the money for a new camera.
I don't wanna go back into reasons why I dislike my XS, but let's say it's mostly due to the ergonomics of the camera itself, it's just darn to small.
But, I'm looking at the price of the 5d mkII, and I am sort of leaning towards the original 5d.
I don't shoot video, I don't shoot high ISO (heck I am even happy with 1600 on the XS).
I don't need the resolution.
All I want is the bigger viewfinder, better WB and a FF (I'm tired of standing 15 feet away from the model and constantly shouting).
First I had thought about getting the 5d classic as a back-up body and selling my XS, but now that I thought the whole thing through... I'm wondering what does the 5d mkII have that the original doesn't????
The screen is much better, but apart from that, I just don't see why would I drop a nice trip, or a Mac Book Air, or more flashes for a body that does the exact same thing as one that costs half the price????
Is the 5d reliable enough (with changed shutter?)????
