I feel it's a waste of money upgrading from one Canon rebel to the next rebel or even a 60D to the 70D.
I suggest that you upgrade only to a larger sensor body.
It is just a waste of money to buy another camera having the same size sensor IMO.
Upgrade your glass instead.
Thats a great hook.
If you plan to.
Anybody with a DSLR who plans to live more than say 5 years, will probably be considering at some point a move forward with the latest tech.
135 / leica / minature format sensor DSLRs are great, some like the 5D3 seem really terrific, and the 1DX seems superlative.
So I have to agree, that really is sound advice. Go to a larger sensor DSLR.
Thanks for that.
I hadn't realised before you made it clear.
I'm not going to follow your advice though.
135 / leica / minature format would give me a couple of problems.
1. I'd only really be able to stretch to a 6D or a used 5D2. (and I need better AF than that for my stills, ok needs a bit strong, would like.
2. I'd have to buy new lenses to cover my UWA and WA. Each at a cost similar to a very good cropped sensor body that my lenses already fit (this is on top of the cost of the 135 / leica / minature format body.
3. I would need 3 bodies to replicate what I have just now. None would have they very useful flip out screen like my 600D. None would fit in my pocket like the M. On a video shoot I usually have 2 x bodies, to save switching lenses all the time and for 2 angle interviews . So I would need at least 2x bodies.
So the cost is racking up, but heres one final operational difference which is a deal breaker for me..
I don't like 135 / leica / minature format bodies for video. The focusing becomes hyper critical. The APS-C format cameras are much easier to live with in my opinion. So even if the 135 / leica / minature format DSLRS weren't at least triple the price of a rebel, I still wouldn't be all that bothered about having one.
You love yours, health to use it, but it's a broad old church this photography lark, don't assume my needs are yours or vice versa. If I ask you what I should buy then feel free to give your advice, but it does smack of flaming and trolling to suddenly proclaim aloud in a must-read post that your way is the only way.
I've had a look through your posts and you're not generally a troll or flamer, this post seems like an abberation rather than the norm.
