I was thinking about upgrading to FF, but 5d3 is a bit out of reach.

I don't take sports shots, but have two energetic kids 8 and 4 yrs old. Selling t2i, 18-135 and 55-250 would probably enough to buy 5dc used body.

I have 50 1.8 and 28-135 ef lens to go with it.

You think it would serve me ok?

If you are okay with taking a step backwards in regards to menu system and lcd screen, go for it.

Having owned both cameras I can say with confidence that the T2i has better ISO performance than the 5Dc.

Shouldn't be too surprising really. The 5Dc is a much older camera... I'm not saying it's bad just that it's worse than the T2i.

That's a little disappointing... Maybe I should save up more for 5D2 or 6D...

A lot of us have the ff bug. I'm thinking about the 6d. The t4i is in no way holding back my photographic talents.

What is your reason?

Most significant advantage of FF is a very shallow DOF it can create compared to smaller sensor cameras, especially with fast primes.

Then again, the newer 5D3 iso 6400 pictures look better than iso 800 pics on T2i's.. ;-)a

Think of the 5Dc as a film camera with a digital twist--it is of the generation that OOC images are the quality that little to no manipulation is needed to produce an excellent end product. ;)

BTW--I have both the 5Dc and the MKII version--and the AF stinks for moving objects with both.

It's two years newer and 5x the cost of the t2i. It should. :)

Why don't you wait for the 6D?
