5D MII ordered. Upgrading from T2i. What's to be expected from the upgrade as far as quality goes?


Equipment: 5D MKii / 50mm 1.8 / 70-200mm F4L / 100mm 2.8 / 430ex II (x2)

I'll be interested for you to tell us after you have recieved your 5d2.

The T2i is a stellar performer, so I expect you will report the I.Q. differences are not that big. However, if you've shot 35mm film before you're likely to notice the big and bright viewfinder which is very nice on the 5d2 compared to the T2i.

Be sure to post back your results and feelings about the upgrade.

I just upgraded from T2i to 5d2. Still kept my T2i for a second body. You will see a slight I.Q. difference (better). A good lens makes the difference with 5d2 it'll give the photos some pop. Just got a 24-105 f/4 L IS for my 5d2 I was impressed with photo I.Q..

I think you will notice the weight and build quality. The t2i feels like a toy in comparison.

you're going to love having 2 dials instead of 1 :)

much more solid build quality, bigger grip to hold onto and big viewfinder.

files are really nice to work on in PP i find as well.

and maybe your good friend won't make comments about how 'un-pro' your body is now ;) *referring to your other thread of course, lol!*

Update: The 5Dii IS AMAZING! Full frame is such a prize to me coming from crop. The quality seems better, the video seems better but maybe that's just me thinking it's better cus' the camera itself just seems better lol

I went for a Rebel (original) to a 40D and then to a 5D. 5D pictures just seem to have a pop to them the 40D does not. 40D is a great camera but the 5D pictures are just great in comparison in my opinion. The build quality and control layout is a big plus also. Lot easier to select AF points and o forth with it.

I'm also thinking of either upgrading to a 5d or just getting a Sigma 30mm for the time being. I might wait til the beginning of next year to buy the 6d.

You can pick up a decent used 5D "classic" pretty cheap. I bet if you bought one you would stop shooting with your current camera. I bought mine and my 40D was forgotten about. I just recently took out the 40D to play with some with my tele to get the little extra reach. It sat in my closest for about 8 months action free.

Yes, it (5D) is an older camera and technology, but the pictures that come out just speak for themselves.

Wow, 8 months haha. I know I'll probably do the same thing except still use my 550D for video. Just might do it!
