My 500D, noble beast that she is, needs to be retired.
Her AF isn't sufficient when trying to catch quicker birds in flight and when it comes to low light photography, anything over ISO 800 affects image quality.
So I decided, that I wanted two cameras to replace her and set my sights on the 6D for the full frame goodness and 7Dii (yes, I know it's not out yet
) for frames per second, AF system and so on.
But a friend is now messing with my mind. His advise? Get the 5Diii instead.
His contention is that the 5Diii will give me more bells and whistles than the 6D offers and provides sufficient resolution that would allow me to crop an image to equal the 1.6 "zoom" of a crop body.
But I'm not so sure that cropping an image shot at 400mm (FF) would give me the "fill" of a 640mm (APS-C) without negatively affecting image quality.
What would you guys do? If the 7Dii isn't announced this year, I may go for the 70D instead.
I'm really in need of some convincing that the full frame can replace a crop body.
Thanks in advance
