So as I move into my 3rd year of photography, I find my 500D isn't able to help my take my photography to the next level and its beginning to feel like my L series lenses are begging to shoot on a full frame body.
I've never had the chance to shoot full frame so most of what I know is pure theory derived from reading reviews etc online.
With South Africa's economy in a bit of trouble, I can get a hardly used 5D mkii for a reasonable price so I'm considering taking that.
Just what can I expect in terms of image quality and noise performance? Is the IQ of a full frame substantially better than a crops? Will I be able to take relatively noise free images at say ISO 3200?
The reviews seem to indicate that the native system for L series glass is full frame. Does this mean that I will experience a dramatic improvement in IQ?
The more I read, it seems that crop bodies have a singular advantage over full frame and that is the increase in focal length.
Can you guys chip in and throw some opinions and facts my way please?
Thanks in advance everybody.
You will love full frame cameras, but you won't like how much the lenses cost.
There are some value ef lenses... but if you get a nice body, it is just a waste to put on mediocre lenses.
Even then... if you just go with primes like the 40mm, 35 f2 is, 100 f2... you can get by.
Sure, but you'll want to add at least one pricey one.
lol. I do have some pricy (for me) lenses.
Canon 100mm macro L, Canon 400mm f/5.6 L, Canon 70-200 f/4.0 L, Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L mkii.
Then also have the EF-S 10-22 & 50 f/1.8.
Nice glass shame about the body! Did you just forget to upgrade your camera when you were acquiring your L lens collection??
