For reference, here is some more info on the 5Dc as an entry level FF camera.

As for its High ISO IQ, Its better than any crop camera canon makes. DXO even confirms this and my own usage agrees also.

My PC does everything a Mac can do and does it cheaper, faster, better, and with no compatibility issues.

For serious editing, I'd never use a laptop. too expensive, outdated too quickly, Run too hot, screens too small, too slow.

Desktops are far more powerful for less $$$ and could be built to any spec needed, upgraded, run cool, and can have large screens.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 6D for BIF

I'd get a 7D before a 6D/5D2/5Dc/20D AF system. The 7D has fantastic AF.

If you can wait, I scored a brand-new USA in the box 5D3 for 2499$ around holidays. I regularly see them for 2899$ on ebay, perhaps you should re-consider holding out a little bit longer?

Lenses / Re: How much would you pay for Canon 24-70 f/2.8 L IS

1999$
LOL, that is pretty specific ... so what you are saying is that if it is $2000 you will not be willing to pay the extra dollar? ;D

I would wait for BVI to have the sale.

In my usage, I felt comfortable in all ISO settings 100-3200 as long as you get your exposure correct. I had no issues shooting at 1600 ISO and looked much better than my 7D.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon Confirms 70D; Future of Semi-Pro DSLR is FF

There is always that chance that maybe an APS-H 10fps 7DII with EF-s compatability is coming. I think it would be a fantastic idea If it plays out.

I think this is physically impossible. The image circle of a EF-s lens is too small to 'expose' the whole APS-H sensor.

A crop mode like Nikon?

Makes sense, buy (and pay)an APS-H senosr, and then run it in a crop mode...

The other problem is the mirror. EF-S lenses use the space that was freed by the smaller mirror for APS-C. I think there also would not be enough space for an APS-H mirror. But, you are free to use third-party APS-C lenses (Sigma, Tamron) even on a FF Canon Body, and crop it on your own.

If they could do it right as not to alienate current efs lens owners and give the extra reach/IQ when using FF glass. I'd buy one.

I loved my 5Dc a lot. It still better than any crop camera canon makes and your can find them for as low as 450$ in decent shape. If you care more about lenses, I'd get a 5Dc with a set of lenses over just getting a 5D2.

To be honest, the 5D2, performance wise, is no better than the 5Dc. It's IQ is far superior but if you have duff glass, what's the point?

After you get a 5Dc, save up for the mk3. You can use the 5Dc and then sell it for exactly what you paid for it. The MK3 around holidays could be as low as 2499$, which is what I paid.

It's like a temp camera until you get the MK3. If you don't like the AF performance of the 5Dc, you won't like the MK2. If you don't mind it, the MK2 is an option. If your patient, the MK3 won't limit you later on.

Yep. I have no appetite to shoot Crop again but I do miss the reach sometimes.

Get the boy to take two large steps from the backdrop and set your flash to 24mm. Depending on ceiling height, bounce the speedlite slightly behind you and add + flash expo comp until you get something like this. You can add a reflector under to kick a bit more light under the chin.

5D3+ 135L

f/2.2 - ISO 100 - 1/200th

If they put a filter that size, I'd just give me another reason to buy a tamron 24-70Vc.
