I have a 5d Mk III that I love - I use it for macro on jewelry shots. I shoot with the 100mm L Canon .
I am considering buying the Canon 180L Macro, but a photograhper friend of mine suggested that I buy a smaller 1.6 Sensor camera that would esentially turn my 100mm into a 160mm and not be as heavy and would still be sharp. The added advantage would be that my other lens would benefit as well when fitted onto the new body. If I were to do so which canon body would be ideal? He uses the 60d and love it. I like the idea of a built in flash as you can cover the flash when it fires to set off remote flashes, unlike my 5d mk III where i have to add pocket wizards to it.
I realize that the smaller sensor camera's are not as tough or robust as my full frame but thats not an issue for me.
I would appreciate comments and feed back on this.
Spend the money on a new lens or a new body and use my current arsenal?
Thank you -
