There was a shutter life DB for a bunch of cameras, not sure how accurate it is:

Thanks! Oh, I just found out that there's no simple way to count the shutter actuations on a 5Dc?? :(

unless canon does the mirror fix, no. One of the bodies I purchased had 60K when mirror fix performed.

Icic. Ok, definitely gambling then haha. I guess I'll just have to look for one that looks the least used. Is there anything I should look out for in particular? Thanks again.

Lately I have really been contemplating getting rid of my 60d in favor for a 5d. Any reason I shouldn't?

Do you have a specific reason for wanting to switch? Are you going to want additional EF lenses? Are you going to miss LiveView, MFA, video?

I shoot with my 1d mostly, so I was planning on getting rid of all my ef-s lens anyways. Never use video or liveview. Would really love to have the depth of field that you see with ff. mostly just hate how noise my 60d is even at low ISO. So just wanting to see if the grass is green on the other side.. Only reason I still have the 60d right now is my 10-22 that I use for rig shoots. So I would have to get a 17-40 if I made the jump to a 5dc

Nothing like a beautiful SoCal sunset @ the legendary Huntington Beach Pier... The sun is about to be eclipsed by the mountains of Catalina Island... 5Dc + 16-35L + Lee 0.6 GND and 0.9 ND Filters (stacked)... ISO 50, f/20 @ 1/8sec...

Great shots, Rolfe!
That lens is doing a good job for you. Where were you able to find the lens?
I don't know if they are no longer being made, or are just hard to find.
Glad you are still enjoying your 5D ..... what is that other "expensive" hobby?
Joe

Thanks Joe!

I bought it from Amazon(like 85% of my stuff haha).

It was $86 used, but it appears to be brand new. I think it was just sitting collecting dust.

My other expensive hobby is music. I play guitar. Been playing going on 16 years now, and it was my first love. That picture up top is of a Orange Micro terror amp in the middle of me swapping the tube.

Unfortunately, guitar easily out paces photography in the cost area lol. One vintage Les Paul could easily buy everyone in this thread an L lens and a beer. :D

Here's a shot of some of my gear-

There you have a step back- Including my 1985 Fender Strat.

If you look closely, you can see all my photography stuff piled on the computer desk, alongside my bag etc.

There is also a Polaroid camera and a Canon Powershot minus the front fascia lol.

Funny, that little Orange amp actually gets quite loud when it is cranked. It can easily keep up with the Valve state and can be used to play gigs haha.

Rolfe, that is an impressive collection!
I can remember when the improved audio came along, and, audio transmissions over the upper frequencies radio. Very elaborate amps, etc. I was busy with building stuff for my amateur radio hobby (I built an amp using 4 611A tubes in a war surplus steel case, among other things).....fun stuff.
I still can't get over how well that lens performs.....happy for you.

Guys,I need your advice!
I want to buy a new lens for my 5DC,I sold my 24-105 L and looking for something better.
I know its completely different lens,but which one you recommend for 5DC : 85mm f/1.2 L or 24-70mm f/2.8 L
My primarily shooting is landscape/portrait/fam​ily.
Does it mean that 85mm f/1.2 L is only for portrait and 24-70 f/2.8 for landscape/portrait and everything?
I really love 85mm f/1.2 but I think this lens is only for portrait.
Thanks.

In your case, I recommend Canon 16-35L F2.8 II and 85mm f/1.2 L (or the less expensive 85mm f/1.8 ).

Hey, gang!

Something came up today!

A few years ago (back in '08) my grandson accompanied me to a trip through the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge here in Washington State. Besides getting bird/wildlife shots, I also got some pics of him...he's been a close "buddy" but has endured a lot of life issues, including five open-heart surgeries!

After the outing, I was going through my shots and stopped at, well, the first few shots of the day were of him. And then, as I looked closely, I was totally moved at the expression of his face and especially his eyes! In fact, I cropped a "head and shoulders" portrait of it, and then I did a B&W conversion.

Well, here's the "5D Classic" part: of course I shot with the 5DC (using the 16-35 lens). The thing is, the "final" portrait crop was "originally" a 100% crop, that is, the pixel dimensions are almost "small" enough to go into POTN without resizing, and still the image looks great! It got just a bit of Noise Reduction, but still, great! In fact, I did an 8x10 print of this, and it came out great!

Here's the uncropped original:

And now, an "almost" 100% crop/pic from the 5D Classic, good enough (to me) to put out to the world/Internet, and good enough to make a very decent 8x10 print!

I did my first wedding 2 weeks ago, used my 5Dc for the bulk of it :). (These are websized photos, so the quality may not look as good as the high res)
