I don't desire new lenses. Had a couple on the 40D that I loved (17-55) and hated (85.8). When I moved to the 5D2, I returned to the focal lengths I liked to shoot on film with the 50L (love), and 35L (learned to love equally).
The thing with the 40D and 5D2, I hated handling the files. People say image quality rests on lenses (I had the best, no excuses), lighting (became more aware), and the photographer's skill (reexamined my technique, settings, and post-processing heavily and constantly).
Eventually, I just stopped shooting, and unexpectedly found myself in a shop, and sold my body on the spot when offered more money than I could have sold it for back in the states.
After a few months of Instagram and shooting with my cellphone (horrible!), I had the itch to buy a new body. There is only one camera that came to mind: The 5D3.
I don't know what it is, but besides the SUPREME, effortless handling over both my old Canons. Whatever flaws I had with my lenses (fringing, CA, softness) simply disappeared or became unnoticeable, and the files from the 5D3 are so easy to handle and post process.
The camera does what I want it to do.
Shooting in color is easy now.
Photography is fun again!
Has anyone experienced anything similar? Switching bodies making all the difference?
