Bet it's not the 24-70 mkii. I'd keep the 5d3 assuming you have adequate glass. Canon is not going to give us a 5d4 for at least 3 years, you may want some of those capabilities you aren't needing today.

Op states they were shooting with a MkII before moving up to a MkIII. I too looked long and hard at the MkIII and after playing with one for a while concluded that the only practical difference for me was the AF and I almost always manually focus anyway to it would have been a total waste on me. Could be the same for the OP.

The OP actually moved up to the MkIII so not really the same. Maybe he's coming to your conclusion after the fact, but I don't get that vibe from his "whataya think?" post.

Yeah, i noticed that as well. :confused:
What say ye, milleniumking?

Lol. I dont want to turn this into a battle royale, was a quick question for the peeps on here. I am down to 2 lenses because having too many lenses for me is not needed. I like the versatility of zooms and when i had the 24-70 i really liked it but didnt have the range. The 2 lenses i have for me a perfect for what i shoot. But the original question from the guy in the park made me think about the 24-70 again and also how and what i shoot. I am weighing the options and parting with my beloved 5dmrkiii may be a bit too tough.

So then the question is, do you really need the 24-70 (in a way where your 50 doesn't suffice) and is it worth downgrading your cam. Yes and yes, then go for it. Otherwise, well, you can figure it out. :-)

you need the 24-105 for general use and travel
and you will have most the focal length you need

I would not take that deal. The AF system on the 5DII is antiquated. Tell him you want a 6D and 24-70II.

No. Once you've used the Mark III's autofocus you'll ever be happy with the Mark II. Why do you think he's willing to make that kind of trade?


I use a Kodak Brownie

AF is great, but if you don't require it, then the 5d2 with good glass is a much better deal. Many people get by just fine with the 5d2...in fact I get along just fine with it's "antiquated AF system".

like other said if you don't need the AF from the 5D3
the 5D2 still a 5D
but I will not do it
i like the SD card memory than the CF cards
and the AF of the 5D3
this AF reminds me my old 7D

Big mistake IMO. I wouldn't do it. For me I waited too long and went through 2 5D's for the pro AF. I could find a used lens if needed.
