To Keep the 5D classic or not to keep
« on: June 26, 2009, 08:09:04 AM »
Was thinking for the past week if I would sell my old but truly wise 5D Classic and the proceeds would go to a 50d w/ grip. Well the reason why that idea crossed my mind is because when I placed the 70-200 lens in a crop sensor I saw those tight shots which I realized "I need those tight shots without going super near to the subject!"  Would it be a wise decision or just keep my 5D classic? need your inputs mga friends :)

putting a 70-200mm on a crop body will much serve its purpose better.... besides you have naman the FF body eh.......  ;)

keep it then just crop to tighten shots.

despite its age, the 5D is still a very capable camera. its starting to become a "cult classic".

the only reason i could think of to replace the 5D with a crop body (40D or 50D) is for the faster focusing.

Boss Albert, you don't have to sell it. You can afford to buy 50D even without selling "The Legend" ;D

Sa taas ng resolution nyan cropping should be hassle free (I can crop on 8/6/even 4 MP cropped cameras and print up to A4 with no problems). 

You may also wish to consider a 1.4x teleconverter.  Should make your range comparable (at a 1 f-stop compromise).
 
But if you believe that the best way to deal with an itch is to scratch it - just get a 2nd lower priced cropped sensor (ie the "highly recommended" 1000d perhaps) and keep the 5D.  Much easier to replace the "consumer" or "entry" grade body later on when fiscal position is better. 

Of the course, selling your 5D now (to me perhaps :-)) will give you the excuse to get the MII  hehe

Keep it, most people are itching to have a FF camera like the 5D but does not have the budget to buy it. So keep a great camera and save your money... or sell it cheap to people like us... :)

Having both 5d and 5d Mark II will just disappoint you with the 50D IQ.
After awhile you will find yourself using the 50D less and less.
Get a Kenko 1.4X TC if you want to shoot tighter shots without getting too near your models.
7-8k lang ang 1.4X TC. Cropping your 21 MP 5DMK2 file is also a good suggestion. Lots of room to crop.

Teka bakit ayaw mong lumapit pag mag close-up shot, bagong ligo naman yata sila.   ;D ;D ;D

PS. My 5D is a keeper and still gets more use than my 50D.

It's a downgrade IMHO. I wouldnt do that.

If my problem is cropping, either I go near the subject, or I'll do the 1.6x cropping during post processing. By that, I dont lose the many benefits of the FF body. Besides, it's a classic body you have there.

If you trade it with a crop body, yes you get the exact crop you want at 200mm (which as I mentioned you can do something about), but you lose a lot. Imagine probably getting a tighter shot but noisier...!  And many more! hehehe.

Besides, you'll get the same problem on the wide side. 70mm will not be wide enough on a crop body. Wala ka na magagawa dun. You cant add (during post processing) the lost details cropped by the body.

Just a thought.

Try them both first before making a decision. I have 50D and 5Dm2, and I use the FF 99% of the time. The wide side is a plus. While I'm also bothered by not-so-tight shots at 200mm during an event, at least I now I have a remedy during PP.

My 2 cents.

Cheers!

definitely keep it, any Canon camera besides the 5DM2 or the 1D Series cant match the old 5D's quality. just my thoughts :)
