+1 for FF. I really like my 5DMKII, but the 5D just didn`t cut it after buying the 5DMKII, so I replaced it with the Nikon FF D700.
I no longer like shooting with crop bodies.;)

Sorry to bring this up 2 days later, but... I just moved up from a 40D to a 5DII and haven't put it through its paces yet, but so far for indoor candid photography, I don't like how wide the FOV is on my 50mm prime, or rather how close I need to be to the subject to properly frame it. Clearly I have to rethink my 50mm f/1.2L plans as a general purpose walkaround lens; not saying it won't work, I just have to give it some thought.

I think a crop body is great for wildlife photography, or even in the studio using cheaper normal primes for portraits when lack of light isn't an issue, while at the same time reducing vignetting and distortion.


Gear: 5D Mark II; 24-105 f/4L IS, Sigma 50mm f/1.4, 70-200 f/4L IS, 85mm f/1.8, 100mm f/2.0, Sigma 15mm f/2.8 fisheye. Coming soon: 7D, 2nd Sigma 50mm f/1.4. Outgoing & for sale: 24-70 f/2.8L.

That is simply spectacular. Incredible colour! Taken over boring old England as well, I must get out of town more often

Nicely mate :)

Going to pick one up this month, granted it's still in stock!

Now to decide on 24-70 2.8L, 16-35 2.8L or... 24-105 4L IS!?

Argh.. wish I had another pile of $$ to drop and get them all! :lol:

I'll take the built in level, I am terrible at leveling my landscapes:(

get yourself a gridded screen. But yeah, I'm a drunk sailor, even when sober and shooting myself... :lol:

you're a brave man my friend.... I would have made the switch myself, but the Nikor lens line scares me. A new 24-70 f2.8, goes for $1,800!!! :eek:

so a lens that's $400 more than canon's but SHARPER with a camera that's $400 less is keeping you from switching? Work on you canon preference stories a but more.... Canon's all about L primes with built in motors. If you need them you're stuck, if not you might want to at least rent/borrow a D700 and just see what it's about.

trust me, I'll miss my 24L, but the D700 is such a much nicer tool.

5DII is not weather sealed neither is the 7D. It's has foam protection for dust and sand but nothing against rain!

yeah, wanna know something? That foam works. The sealing on the buttons DOESN'T! My battery/card were still dusty but the rest of the camera **** the bed. :cry:

pwm2 wrote in post #8574060 (external link)
I have never owned a 1N, so I don't really know what Canon means by saying that the 5DMk2 and 7D weather protection is "equivalent to a 1N".

I've owned a 1Nrs. The key thing to remember is it was protecting FILM!!! Film takes to water like a duck. It's batteries were well sealed which I'd guess were the biggest issue....

Yeah, I really need to get a gridded screen myself... something I've been meaning to do actually. Still, the built-in level would be cool.. surprised that is a new feature actually - you'd think that they'd have done something like this before.

Go with the 16-35 II and the 24-70 (or for an all-rounder, the 24-105 can't be beat)
