Yes ... You are crazy to sell your Canon gear ... Especially because two months back you were seeking advice as to how to improve your gear -
So I made the jump to FF with my 5D
I love it so much and I feel like it was a step up from my T1i. Thanks to everyone who helped me on this forum haha.
My new question is what should my lens set up be? I currently have theses lenses for my 5D:
-Canon 17-40 f/4 (upgraded from a Tamron 17-35 f/2.8-4.0)
-Canon 50mm f/1.8
-Canon 70-200 f/4
Is there any other lens that I should be looking at? I mainly shoot at family parties and friendly gatherings. Occasionally I do some landscape photography and interior/exterior photography of buildings
I'm thinking about getting a Canon 24-105 but I have lens that already cover that focal length. I do want some primes like the Canon 35mm f/2 or the Canon 100mm f/2 (not the 2.8 macro).
I think I'm set for flashes since I have a 580exII and 430exII. Anyone have any suggestions for expanding my gear list?
Like many hobbyists, I think you may just be having an emotional pang. There have been numerous times when I've thought "so much gear and so little time for photos" but it goes away with time.
Shifting to a smaller setup won't solve anything because you'll miss the most obvious IQ benefits of the FF DSLRs. At the risk of sounding like an idiot giving the opposite advice of what you wish to do, I'd suggest buying something like a Sony RX 100 as a P&S in addition to your existing gear and use the P&S where you need to be unobtrusive. Give it 6 months and if you don't find yourself craving for the DSLR IQ, Sell your gear.
+1. Give it some time and live with your gear.
