Ok well I have money to upgrade cameras, My Lenses are 50mm 1.8 and 70-200mm F/4 L, I am debating should i Buy a 5D Classic and still have money to buy another L Lens. or Upgrade to the 5D Mark ii and just roll with the 2 lenses i currently have. I usually shoot high fashion.


**An Update**

I just purchased the 5D classic with a 10k shutter count mint conditon. I must say i am impressed with this FF camera. very good Detail & Color. Just now on new debate about which next lens to get.

I highly doubt FF will make a difference to your photos.

I had the 5Dc - great body - and now have a 1DsII. I went with the latter for the better AF mainly, but the 30% increase in pixels didn't hurt the decision. Only thing about the 1DsII is that in order to shoot tethered and access personal functions, you'll need an XP version computer with a firewire hookup.

If I shot mainly fashion stuff I'd go 5d classic, sell the lenses, and buy a fast 85, 50, and 35.

From what I've seen that isn't the best deal. I have seen many sell for $800 and one recently went for $950 with a brand new shutter and another for $920 with 15,000 actuations and no scratches etc.

I'd go this route, unless the ISO performance and higher MP's of the 5d2 work better for you

If you're in it for the long haul, really need full frame, and can handle a full size camera with a built-in portrait grip, the 1Ds2 is definitely the way to go. As good as the image quality is from the 5Dc, the 1Ds2's autofocus eats the 5Dc's (and the 5D2's) for lunch, and the 1Ds2 has all the goodies Canon tends to put into their top-of-the-line.

There's a good thread on it here: https://photography-on-the.net …/showthread.php​?t=1184308


But I have to ask: why do you believe you need full frame?
