I find myself looking for a little inspiration and want to change my gear up a bit. I currently have a 60D (Gripped) with 18-200 kit lens and a Nifty Fifty. Let me say I love this camera and it always meets my needs! I do not use my photographs as a means of income, just a hobby and way to document life around me for myself and for my future generations. I did not get my 50mm initially when I bought my camera but when I got it in the mail from B+H I felt inspired and began really getting more in depth with my hobby. If I could I would (and I am trying to this day) ditch my 18-200 and stock up on a couple in expensive primes. Don't get me wrong I like the 18-200 for its versatility but find it un-mounted most of the time.
I want to sell my camera to fund either purchasing a 5D II or Classic. My first choice is the Mark II, I do enjoy video capabilities once and a while, and like making large prints for around the house so the higher MP count would be a bonus. But there are no takers in my area for my gear and would be more likely to raise enough for a Classic. My question is this:
Can the 5D Classic still perform well enough for an enthusiast like myself, or will I kick myself for not holding out for an unknown amount of time and getting the mark II?
If you could provide Sample photos from a Classic show casing it I would be greatly appreciative!
