What's *better* in a XTi/400D than a 5D?

In terms of functionality (other than the whole EF-S thing)? I'm trying to see if, say, I go all the way from 400D to 5D in the future what am I losing there...

Thanks!



5D3 and a few lens

Size, weight, price, portability, built in flash, crop factor. (zooms act as if longer allowing less expensive lenses to behave as more expensive ones, i.e. a 400mm works like a 640mm).


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

Surely it's not so much a question of what you are losing but what you would be gaining. I have a 400D which I am very happy with but I would jump at the chance to own a 5D.

The only thing I can think of is
1. size, portability
2. crop factor, EF-S lens usage
3. dust cleaning sensor (actually this is what mattered most to me)

Ditto.

I did just what you are contemplating. And it's a gain. I then added a new 30D for a few features that the 5D didn't have (faster fps primarily). But skipped the 40D because I wanted to be able to address my dementia for a brainless switch if necessary between the 30D/5D controls and menuing.

But I still use the XTi frequently (always have some body/glass with me everywhere I go except the shower).
It is my version of a P&S on steroids (although the G9 is tempting for that purpose) as well.

So if you moved up you would have the advantage of a FF body and if you stick to EF glass the advantage of both a crop body and a FF with the same glass.

:lol:
