I've got a friend who's got an unused EOS 10D. I'm able to grab it for about $80 US. Just throwing the question out as to whether I should grab it or not.
At the moment I have a 7D, 10-22, and a 70-200 f/2.8L IS USM.
Why I should:
+ I've always wanted a cheap camera which I needn't worry about, needn't baby it. I'm not saying my 7D's absolutely mint, but it does pain my heart every time it gets a new ding. As a result, I seem to only take my 7D out when I'm planning to shoot, and hence, quite often, I miss fantastic photo opportunities.
+ It's cheap. I could grab a okay-ish lens and still have it for less than a S100, perhaps even a S95. And I figure, even with a mediocre lens, I probably couldn't get worse performance than a S100.
Why I shouldn't:
- It does not support EF-S. Which means going wide will be a problem. I could mod the 10-22 so that's not really a problem.
- It's pretty darn old. I'm not sure if I could get used to such an old interface and relatively poorer performance after being with the 7D for about, 2 years?
- Re my previous comparison against the S-series, it's a heck of a lot larger than that. Not really a problem, since I do typically bring a bag along. But sometimes it'll be nice to just slip a candybar in my pocket.
So guys, please keep your thoughts and opinions flowing!
