Jack56 said:Hi all, Last winter, I had some problems with my Mark 5d III. I've bought a new body, Mark 5d IV. The III has been repaired so I've got two good cameras. Is it wise to keep the III as a backup or should I sell the III and buy another backup?
I agree. Keeping the 5D III as a backup for the IV is probably the most economical solution. But, it also depends on your intended use. I like having the ability to put a 24-105 on one body and a 70-200 on the other body for shooting events.Sporgon said:If you're serious about a 'back up' camera, for serious work, then it should ideally be identical to your main camera. But if you're just wanting another camera body, or one that's more suited to different situations, smaller, lighter, or faster etc, then you just get what you fancy.
