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

I kept my crop because it's still a fantastic body, it's lightly used, I don't want to take a hit on selling it, I wanted the availability of the crop factor for range/distance , and as the lens collection grows, so does the chance that I will end up needing a second body. Whew..

As far as the 100-400L + 1.4x- well, there goes AF. Probably not as much fun without AF- right ? Personally, I did not notice the loss/ difference, partly because I didn't plan on selling the crop in the first place, and secondly, I just didn't notice it that much, and thirdly- I adapted & changed tactics some- so I kind of compensated.. The only place where I noticed the losses- is at extreme distances- like taking a moonshot or birds at a distance..

Personally, I used to have a t1i, the predecessor to your t2i- you will probably be better off with the 5D3's AF system (think cross type sensors here- better for AI focus ) resulting in more keepers over your t2i. That is, unless you limit yourself to mainly center point AI focus for BIF/wildlife, etc. Work on getting closer if you can.. If I were you, I'd consider an upgrade to a t4i for it's 9 point cross type AF and other enhancements- but overall- if you are comfortable with the t2i, I might do nothing. Notice I did not suggest a 7D here- because as nice as it is, it is fairly expensive, and very similar to the 5D3- and sometimes it's nice to have a very lightweight setup - like a T4i/18-135 STM...

Why? Mine AF's perfectly well thanks, both on my 5D2 and previous 30D.

If you can keep both, why not? I will have to sell my 50D when I upgrade.

I am a hobbyist, and not a rich one. Once I bought the 7D, the 40D was only used one time - to take a picture of the 7D. I never used it again. When I decided to get a 5D Mk III I sold the two crops and all the EF-s lenses, so I didn't pay very much for the Mk III. I shoot mostly landscapes, and like the other features for occasional opportunities, but I would never shoot a wedding (after a few of my own, I won't even go to one...) and I don't go birding. If I ever need a backup, I will rent one.


I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.

I have crop and full frame. Since I purchased the Canon 10-22 lens, I hardly ever take the 5D out of the bag.

I'm keeping my 500D, it is nowhere close to 5Dc for portraits and some other things like pictures with fast EF primes in general.
But my Rebel does good job for macro, street photograpthy and fast moving objects. It also helps if I need to shot something from big distance with 70-200.

I had a 450D for about 18 months before I went FF almost 2 years ago now. Kept it at the time & said if I need to sell it I will but so far have gotten away with it ;)

I don't use it regular but if I do car track days or urbex I'll keep a lens on each to save the continuous swapping of lenses :)

Going to sell my 7D when I get back to the states in October. Will wait to see what Canon has for us with the rumors floating around, maybe pick up a 5DIII later if price comes down. Only non FF I plan on keeping around is the X-Pro 1 and X100 for travel.

I sold off my 40d and 60d off when I got my 5dmkii. I'm really getting into wildlife photography and birding and wish I had that extra reach.

when you have something like a 400mm on a FF it makes a big difference on a crop as it goes to 620.

Sold the 7D. Not only did I loose the reach of the 7D but I sold my 10-22 to to help fund it so I'm missing the UW. But I really love the 5d3. And cutting down on the number of lenses I have isn't a bad thing, it makes me work harder on composition.

So what you're really saying is you need a 17-40 for your FF ;)

Speaking of the 17-40, does the lens really REALLY shine on a FF? Bought it because I want to upgrade. But I'm currently using it on a 50D and I'm not impressed.

I bought mine when I had my 30D .. it was always pin sharp. I'm even more impressed with it on my 5DII. It lived on the 5DII right up until I got the 24-105, so now it only gets used for wide stuff.

I kept my XTi for 2 years after I bought the 5DII in 2009 and used both a lot. But I didn't really "get rid of it". I just wanted to get back as much $$$ as I could since I knew I was going to replace the XTi. I'm now waiting for the T4i to arrive at my local photo store (their previous stock got recalled). So, I'll have a crop and FF (at least for a while).


Too much stuff, not enough shooting time.

Canon T4i (2 lenses), Fuji X100s, Olympus OM-D EM-1 (3 lenses)
