So i bought a rebel xti in 2007 or so and bought only full frame lenses thinking gosh in 5, 6 years Canon will make a full frame camera I can afford. I like low light shooting, so I waited and waited. Didn't upgrade my xti. Well it never happened - Canon just never brought full frame down the line up. Will it ever happen? And maybe I could find a deal on the 6d but no flash is annoying since it's handy in a pinch. I started to feel like I made a mistake with my whole system (28 1.8, 50 1.4, 85 1.8, 28-135, 70-300). Limited wide angle, lenses bigger than I need, no affordable prosumer full frame in sight.
So I sold it all on ebay over the weekend. Bought the fuji x100s that I've drooled over for years for its high sync speed and awesome daylight fill flash. That's my new low light indoors camera, with higher ISO than I've ever had and will never have with the affordable full frame Canon won't make. And far smaller than lugging an SLR.
But I still needed an SLR. I thought about going Nikon for 15 minutes just because I'm mad at Canon. And it seems Canon has just been using the same crop sensors for years (one reason I never upgraded the xti)
But the 70D got me with the video focusing and the STM lenses. Got a 18-135 and 55-250. My iphone shoots great video but not far for kids soccer, family sports, etc. Sure I could buy a camcorder but then which do I bring to the event?
And boy those crop lenses are cheap and small. Wow I can even afford the new 10-18 IS STM coming out. I think I can live with the lack of full frame SLR.
