EOS Bodies / Re: Older Canon cameras
« on: January 17, 2013, 01:38:12 PM »
So general consensus seems to be ... steer well clear! Although that A1 looks lovely, but with fungus in the picture, that is a no go. Would love to use them at some point, but was looking more at collecting vintage bodies rather than use. What would anyone suggest as a vintage camera, whatever make, which has value as a collectible?

Anyone have experience with vintage Canon camera bodies from the late seventies early eighties era? Have a person trying to sell me a Canon A-1, Canon EX Auto and Canon T-50, all with respective lenses and in working condition film cameras, although he says some have fungus! Is their total worth worth the 200 euro asking price for all three of them seeing they will need cleaning?

Good information, you probably have a point that paying that amount of money for a 5 year old body released in 2007 does not really make sense... but waiting for a high MP count to ever appear from Canon will take quite a while...!

If you had to choose between the 5D3 and the 1DsIII, seeing as the 1DsIII second hand is close to the 5D Mark III price point, what would be the best option. The scenario involves me needing a second body for architecture and landscape work, for the sports and wildlife I am quite content with the 1DX.

Canon have an inflated price structure, as much as I love my 1DX and 400 mm prime, no way they cost an arm, a foot and a whole torso...

Great shots mate.

I'd stop fretting about your equipment, learn to use it properly and get on with shooting. You've got a great kit. Use your surplus cash to take a holiday with your young family.


Besides seconding him, and neuro who says one can never have enough glass, I would say you have an excellent camera body and good glass as it is, just keep learning and improving.

Never saw the need for a tilting head while shooting football, waterpolo or performances.

Lenses / Re: Should I get 1.4x III or 2.0xIII extender - please help.

I have experience with the 2x III on the 70-200 mm II and the 400 mm f2.8 IS I, not too happy with IQ wide open at f5.6, and in most situations you cannot stop down to f8 to improve IQ, so would not be a combo to use often.

Do not expect any price drops any time soon!

Sell you mine? It is a beautiful lens if you can cope with the manual focus that is.
