I thought I will never buy a full frame camera.
Feb 25, 2012

If you know me you should know what I've been saying that full frame sensor offers little advantage for what I do and bodies like 5D/5DII are not very desirable to say the least. I have less and less desire to buy a full frame camera and thought I might never buy one. I'm almost certain my next camera will be a general purpose compact camera like G1X or NEX that I can take anywhere and offers more than satisfactory IQ for landscape and travel photography while I keep the 7D for wildlife and occasional event shooting.

This have all changed with the 800D. I can't imagine anything will be even remotely close to what this camera plus 14-24 can offer. It's almost like, and even better in many ways than, having a MF very cheaply. It's still so even the 51AF point may be wasted for me because I will keep the 7D for wildlife but that could change later too.

The question now is if I should buy the 800D first or my planned (Canon) 300/2.8.
