Okay, so I am new to the photography scene and I've been trying to soak up as much information as possible and I had a couple of concerns that have haunted the back of my mind for a little while. I've been reading how certain lenses can limit how well certain bodies perform. As a PC technician, I can relate this to "your pc is only as fast as your slowest part" motto. As for myself, I have the following equipment:
Canon EOS T1i
Canon 50mm 1.8
Canon EF-S 18-55 IS
Canon EF-S 55-250mm IS
Down the road as I am considering further lens upgrades it's gotten me to wondering how much would say an L lens be limited by the T1i? Will I still be able to get super sharp shots from the lens without having the 4,000$ price tag of a mkiii or equivalent? From what I've read about various bodies the differences seem more like features rather than actual clarity or sharpness, but at the same time I've read some comments hinting otherwise.
Is the real-world difference in shot clarity and sharpness between my T1i and more expensive full-frame models significant? And if so, are there any good side-by-side examples that I could feast my eyes upon?
Let me preemptively apologize if this type of thread is out there somewhere else, I had difficulty in using search terms that would yield the answer I am seeking. Also, if all of this sounds extremely uneducated, but I am trying!
Thank you all for any help, it is greatly appreciated.
