5dIII vs 24-70 II
« on: March 30, 2012, 03:37:36 PM »
I have a 5d mark II and the 24-70I , given that the new 24-70II is so awesome and will be out soon would i be better off buying the updates lens instead? I really don't live at high iso settings, landscapes don't tend to run move around, and the center point is golden on my "antique" 5d mark II autofocus system. I am very happy with the color i get up to 1600, but i mostly shoot 100-800. I have a 1d mark III also, so with all that being said would a new 5d mark III really be better than a lens that can actually resolve 21 megapixels?

The new lens is looking like it will be really amazing, that said it's a shame if it's to be paired with a camera that cant keep up with it.  just saying. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

If you ONLY do landscapes, then go for the lens! The mark III is amazing, but you would be better served with the lens. Or get the 24 1.4 L. I just got that lens and its quite amazing.

That's what I was thinking too, lens first, and yes the 24 1.4 is on my wish list
