Do any of you have a mixed system (ff and crop)?

I couldn't imagine not having a crop because I like the extra reach and don't shoot wide much. But then I realized I could probably get a 5D someday in the distant future and use it along with a crop for the wide angle stuff.. just as an example, a 5D with 24-105 or maybe a wide angle lens, and a 7D with 100-400.

Do any of you have any systems like this and do you ever feel like you are off balance or lopsided in someway?

...or you could grab a 10-22 or 15-85 for the 7D...or, a Sigma 8-16 if you want really wide. ;)

I have 5D3 and 7D. The full frame gets used for most shooting since I added it to my kit, with the 7D regulated to wildlife use with a 100-400L. When I carry only one body, it is always the 5D3.

I have a 5d/t2i combo. I find they both serve thier purpose with the type of lens and photography that I do.

Wrong. You can crop a 5D3 + 100-400 image to a 7D + 400mm equivalent and the ff image is still better.

There is simply no place for crop camera once you own a capable ff body such as a 5D3.

I use a 5D and a 60D, basically interchangeably. I have better glass for the 60D: 10-22, 15-85. But the 5D is quite capable even with mediocre glass. I use the 20-35 and 28-135 on it and am happy with the results. OK, the 20-35 distorts worse than any other lens I've ever used, but I live with it, thanks to Lightroom. I use my longer zooms, 70-200 & 100-400, on both bodies. I get more reach with the 60D, and more modern controls and options. But I like the files out of the 5D better.

I kind of chuckle at folks who claim the 60D is a too small or that the 5D series is just too big. I have grips on both of them. Neither is too large too handle. I don't even notice the difference in size anymore. Sometimes I have to look at the body to see which one I am using.

If I buy a Pentax 645D, can I claim I am using a 0.6x crop camera? Or is it fullER frame?

I think 'no place' is a bit strong. However, if I could afford the 5DIII, 16-35II, 24-70II, 70-200 II, 24L and a 135L, I'd surely find a deserving soul to give my apsc equipment to. As long as I have to compromise, my 60D fills the bill quite nicely.

I have a 7D and a 5DII I bought from a friend. I never owned a FF before so I've been using it a lot just snapping pics and playing with settings. I am bringing both to a rugby game today and I plan on setting up the 5DII and firing it remotely while using the 7D on a mono.

I don't pay much mind to al that crop/FF/extra reach/shoot wide/better bokeh/DOF stuff. I use what I have and try to make the best photos and learn from each time I go out.

I'm upgrading my kit soon, getting a 70D and soon after a FF, really want a FF for night stuff, street photography and holidays. The 70D will be for airshows etc :)
