Bodies come and go. Canon glass is great.

@pdirestajr - great shots! My "deadline" for the D20 is well passed and I went with the S100 instead, but after seeing these shots I still may want to pick up a D20. Thanks for sharing!
There is also the benefit that the APS-C sensor shoots the "sweet spot" of the lens. So you can use old lenses like the 35mm f/2.0 and get a super sharp image across the frame! On a FF, it may get a bit ugly in the corners.
That's true, but it's really a strange argument if you think about it. You probably could built an older ef lens cheaper as ef-s without the non-used non-"sweet spot" glass around the center. It might not make such a difference and it depends on the zoom range, but with ef lenses on aps-c you're carrying dead weight.I think Canon should take a leaf out of Nikon's book and allow EF-S lenses to fit full frame cameras, using a discrete part of the sensor - the APS-C part.
However, it seems Nikon users don't really use that option much, they seem to use fx glass on a fx sensor. For this and marketing reasons, I guess there's no way Canon will follow this path, though it would be handy if engineered with no additional cost.
I have another question: I intend to sell my Canon 55-250mm f/4-5.6 to buy Canon 35mm f/2 for portrait shoots (separation of subject from background is important to me). However, I don't know if f/2 of the 35mm can create shallow DoF like (or better than) the 55-250mm with long focal length or not?
I use crop sensor and don't want to move to far from subject so the 50mm f/1.8 or f/1.4 or longer focal length are not suitable for me.
Any advice for me on that? Thank you very much!
... and how "basic" the 5Dii was. Of course the 5Dii's sensor is beautiful and beats the 7D's.
I totally don't understand how anyone can say the 5DIII was a "small" upgrade! It has upgraded basically EVERYTHING.
for sure thats why i've got a bright screen for my 5dmk2 and it's getting used with my manual focus lenses now
its a pretty sweet combo
the mk3 is just so much better handling than the mk ii
