Me, personally, for "pure" shooting and IQ - 5D over any existing Canon crop camera.

Fair trade IMO - 5D is still a very nice camera to shoot with. Very little distractions, makes great images.

Takes nice pics, already can feel a "different" look to them, more creamy, more realistic?

DOF just got thinner with all your lenses :D

Which is only an advantage if what you shoot requires it. For some shots that is actually detrimental. ;)

I think, personally, for a lot of shots it's detrimental.
That's just me.

I own a 60d and a t3i. Like them both. Shot 35 mm for 28 years before this. Don't really care what forum wannabes have to say about which body is 100x better. Lol. If you're a good photographer the differences are negligible. My instinct tells me that a lot of people have great equipment with much smaller skillsets. This goes for any hobby I ever had. The need that shows up with his 10k bike and can't pedal it up a hill is the first thing that comes to mind.

The biggest advantage of full frame for me is the increased availability and usefulness of prime lenses, especially film era manual lenses. I like having a wide choice of "standard" lenses and wide angle primes to choose from, crop simply doesn't give me that kind of variety. In fact usually you're limited to 1 choice if any for prime lenses. On top of that the increased DOF is useful often (though, not always) for my style of photography.

I agree that there are probably some users out there who don't really need full frame, but that doesn't make them "wannabes" either, if they can afford it and it's what they want, more power to them.

Agreed. The "wannabe" comment was kind of like "if the shoe fits wear it" sort of thing. I'm sure ff is great, but you can surely tell that there is a good portion of people that are equipment geeks. I could care less what people use or what they like when it comes to equipment. What irks me is the people that rabidly force their views on others with no room for judgement. Happens all the time. Again, this is not directed toward anyone specifically. "If the show fits"
On another note, I have guys in my bicycle club. That argue of grams of weight cut from their bicycles and they ride once a week, are overweight to some degree, or quite frankly, aren't that good of a rider. While there is nothin wrong with having a super nice bicycle, it is also often these same people from the example above that coerce people, or try to coerce them that their current bike is slowing them down and they "need" a new one. It irks me. Reason being is I ride with the A group in my town, am in the top 4 out of all the folks that ride and have a 10 year old bike that just fits right. Had a new one last year and never got used to it, and t was specced out way better than my old one. For some reason, the old one just works for me better. That's my point.

I hear you, I wasn't trying to belittle your comment or anything, just saying that it's not always (and in my opinion, not usually) the case.

I went from a 60D to a 5D Classic and immediately fell in love with the raw images. MUCH better files than produced by the 60D. I constantly came back from shooting with the 60D disappointed and that stopped when I started using my 5D. Just much better iQ and that's all I was concerned with. No need to compare all the bells and whistles if your bottom line is which will give me the better image quality. Good choice! you won't regret it, ever.

Any issues with focus on the 5dc compared to it's newer counterparts, or the mark II?

"100x better" is a silly thing to say. I'm not being hostile, that's what I don't like about the boards. Written word can be taken out of context very easily. You do have more pull, and your opinion is valuable to the forums. To the OP, congratulations on your trade. I hope you enjoy your new body!

Of course it's a silly thing to say, if you were to take it literally. That's why they call it hyperbole.

Finally, someone understands me! :lol:

The center focus point is the only usable focus point (not to be taken literally) for shooting anything moving with ai servo. But with that said I was just out taking photos of my dogs chasing each other yesterday and a good 75% of shots were in focus on the face where I was attempting to aim at a running dog. So yes, the 5d is plenty capable of grabbing an accurate focus, but it is not necessarily easy.

The outer focus points are perfectly usable for landscape stuff and still objects/posing people, but struggle some in lower light situations.

Just sold my 5DC tonight :cry: but in 10 days when I return from canada I will have a 6D

I know a few photojournalists who still use a 5Dc. I reckon one of the reasons you don't see many for sale on ebay and the like is because it's still a great camera for people. I'd do it myself if I wasn't such an all rounder.

There are tons on eBay, though.

They don't stay long though, they get scooped up quickly.

I keep the 5D classic posts on a notification, I see about 20 go up in a week and see in a few days.
