5d classic still relevant in 2012?
Feb 17, 2012

Okay, here's my dilemma: I am getting started in wedding photography and would like to get a full frame camera. My current setup is...

EF-S 17-55 2.8
EF 24-70L
EF 70-200 f4L non IS
EF 50 1.8
430ex ii

My idea is to sell the 17-55 and get a 5d classic. This gives me wide coverage with the 24-70 on 5d and telephoto coverage with the 70-200 on the 60d. I bought the 24-70 with the intent to move to full frame but find it too long for crop. My thought is that owning two bodies instead of one will save me from having to rent/borrow some gear for weddings. (I also have access to a 7d, 580ex ii, 17-40, 50 1.4, and 85 1.8 from friends who like me and let me borrow their gear and vice versa). That's what I'm thinking. Am I crazy for thinking of buying an almost 7 year old camera or does that sound like a plan?
