Thanks, BL. Very useful tips.
aj, to each his own. For my specific purpose, I need a cheaper full frame body to complement my 5DIII where I cannot take the latter, and where I cannot change lenses.
Also, thanks for sharing the information about shadow noise in the 5D.
I do understand one cannot get everything at once. I have to expect some trade-off for getting a FF camera for so cheap. I just need to make sure the trade-off is in the right areas. The AFMA is a bit of a worry though.
I did not notice a problem with my 2.8 lenses in regards to AFMA. Anything faster than that, prepare to use your eyeballs and a high precision Ec-S screen
Oh, that's true. I can use the Ec-S with the 5d!
