I am currently on my second Rebel body, but with the decreasing price of the 5D Mark II, I am starting to consider going full frame, otherwise it will be the 60D or its successor. The switch is not that easy for me, because my 2 most used lenses are crop only.
Background, I am an enthusiast only, and most of my photo's revolve around family and the trips we make. Photo's are thus a mix of landscapes, indoor/outdoor architecture and family (groups mosthly)
So I want to solocite opinions:
1 - Why people (non-pro's), similar to my use, made the switch (outside of weddings and studio photogs)
2 - Why people DID NOT make the switch
Negatives I am concerned about (due to my expected use)
- Lack of pop up flash for quick fill flash
- Size and weight compared to Rebel and 60D
Positives I have identified
- Better low light performance
- Better "apparent" depth of field
- Have some weather sealing
Again for my use, the lower quality AF and burst rate are not important (I am used to a Rebel), but maybe this played a big role for people who didn't switch.
I am mostly aware of the pure technical differences between the 5D and 60D. I am more concerned with actual experience using it. I.E. was it everything it was made up to be when you switch. Or what is bothering you with the 5D. Or what specific qualities are stopping you from switching (apart from price off course)
Your opinions are greatly appreciated.
