Used 5D, 600d or something else?
Dec 30, 2011

After reading around a bit, I am currently still undecided on what to buy. I can get a used 5D from eBay for around £500-600, a new 600d with kit lens for £600ish or I could get something else.

I'm finding film a bit inconvenient and need a digital equiv. I absolutely love shallow DOF and plan to get a 50mm 1.4/1.8 if I go full frame, or a 50mm equiv for the 600d.

I tend to do general photography (friends, items), a bit of street photography and sometime slow light photography. I don't mind the limited ISO of 3200 of the 5D since I'm used to using ISO 200/400 film, and I don't need a movie mode. Will only be taking photos.

So which would be the better option? At the moment I'm leaning towards the 5D but more opinions would be appreciated. Thank you.
