OK LET ME START BY ASKING A QUESTION,,AND WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT IM NOT TRYING TO STIR THE POT
i was at a wedding this weekend and another photog that was shooting after we were done had the new 5dmk2. we chatted for a few minutes and i was asking him about the new toy. he made a comment that i found od. asked him if it was a problem working with the larger files and how he liked the camera ??
his response was not what i expected. he said,, all im shooting is s-raw and smaller files,,takes up too much memory,,so its really not a problem to process them. the whole time im thinking,,jeeze,,why get the 5dmk2 if your only going to shoot smaller files,,thats close to what the current 5d file size is. my thinking is he just got an updated 5d and his only real benefit would be the viewfinder and high iso performance.
AGAIN,,NOT TRYING TO STIR UP A BIG ARGUMENT. but doesnt that really defeat the reasons for getting the updated 5d over the current 5dmk1. would like to hear your thoughts from the guys that use the current 5dmk2. i was set on buying one at the start of the year
