As a lot of people, I'm not only a photography geek but I also tend to fall into the trap of buying and selling way too much stuff (cameras and lenses), because there's always something better behind the horizon. Or is there?
I have a 5D3 + 24105L + 70200L/2.8II, coupled with a Sony a6000 + 24Z + 1670Z and a compact RX100. Quite a decent setup right?
Now the 5D3 is unused way too much to my liking, mainly because I got fed up lugging around all the heavy stuff. It's not like I make (a lof of) money with my photography, and when going on trips with the family and stuff, I rather not have a 15kg backpack on my shoulders. That's where the mirrorless and rx100 came in. Great camera's, but stil...
I kept a nagging feeling that the pictures I'm taking with either the 5D3 or the other camera's lack a certain sharpness and quality that I was used to before. Rest assured, this is not a user error. I've been photographing SLR's for +15 years, do some weddings occasionally but even the 5D3 never really 'wowed' me.
So I went digging inside my lightroom catalog and it turns out the best pictures I've taken the past few years were with my 7D + EF-S 17-55/F2.8 lens. Almost all of these are tack sharp, got great bokeh and just look amazingly good. Makes me wonder why I ever felt the need to sell and get the FF camera, but I guess we all know why...that itch.
Now, since I'm not using the 5D3 and the expensive lenses all that much, I'm thinking about selling it all and just getting a 70D+1755/F2.8 again. I suppose the 70D is somewhat the successor to the 7D right?
What do you think about this? Am I mad? I might very well be that my 24-105 isn't that good optically, compared to the EF-S 17-55 and maybe I should get the 24-70 for my 5D3, but even then I wonder if it's worth the money when I got such nice shots from the 7D.
