From crop to full frame. Did you keep your crop?

I sold my Canon 60D in order to fund my 5d2, but as soon as I can afford one, I will pick up a back up body, I have not decided between another crop or maybe move over to the new mirror-less. If I had the means I would have kept my crop as I was a big fan of the 60d.

Had a XT then a 50D. Added a 5DII. Then, sold the 50D and bought a 7D. The 5DII and 7D combo is tough to beat! You have just about every shooting scenario covered and you have a backup.

I kept my 7D after buying a 5D3. The 7D gets used for wildlife and occasional ultra-wide angle shooting (kept my EFS 10-22mm), while the 5D3 gets used for pretty much everything else. The two bodies have similar control layouts and share the same battery type, too, which is very convenient.

It's very handy carrying two bodies at times. It saves a lot of lens changing.

Yes I kept it for birding / sports. However I will likely sell it because the 100-400 with a Kenko 1.4x extender works great on my 5D Mark III. AF is fully functional and IQ is good. 6.5 FPS (measured) with the 5D3 is fast enough the majority of the time.

I've never sold any of my cameras. I've still got my AE-1 film camera, which was my first ptoper camera. Having said that, although I still have my 40D, I think I have only used it once since going full frame.

Yep, invested in some good efs lenses that I really like and do not want to let go. Also I can use my t2i in the dark, upside down, without looking at it, where as I am still "learning" my 5d. Its the only thing that makes me even consider getting it again when it eventually dies.

I can't deal with the IQ of the 7D/60D/550D @ ISO 1600 or above after going full frame, other stubble differences like dynamic range and shadow/highlight detail are just so much better on the 5D series imo.

Alas, just put my beloved 7Ds and associated EF-S lenses up for sale. Have gone totally FF. Got tired of mentally calculating focal lengths all of the time between the two formats. Now have a 5DII and 5DIII and maybe will pick up a 1Dx.

When I brought the 5D2 I sat the 50D in the cupboard and that is where it stayed, so I made a huge mistake and sold it. Then when I realised I actually wanted a crop body as well I went out and brought a good 40D. Now they both live in my bag and whilst I don't use the 40D every time I go out is still gets considerable use. The strange part is I prefer the images taken with the 40D over ones taken with the 50D.

When I bought the 40Ds (I originally had 2), the 50D had just been introduced and the 40D price was right. I've never shot a 50D and have been curious as to how owners of both compared the images. I really wasn't happy with the 7D images and I always wonder if the 50D had the same image issue. The one big bonus with the 50D for me would be the MFA ability.

I got my T2i after 5D2, but keep 5D2 after 5D3 and let go of my T2i.
Now I only have FF.

Yep. I dumped mine.

Same. Got rid of the 7D. Already had a 5DC and I bought a 5D3. I like full frame more than I like crop. Just my personal preference. For my needs, the 7D was redundant as well.
