Full Frame (5D3) or APS-C?
Mar 4, 2012

With the 5D3, I have a potential chance to upgrade to Full Frame. However I'm strongly leaning towards holding off for the 7D replacement which will probably be in a month or 5, and spending the difference on glass. Reasons being, price and focal reach advantage of APS-C.

I'd love your opinion about the advantages of Full Frame. The only real benefits I see are wide angle options, and slimmer DOF.

My question is - with 1.4 and 1.8 primes, as well as the EFS10-22, can FF really offer more in this respect than my 60D?

I gravitate mainly on Landscapes and Sports, some wildlife.

Apologies if this has been done to death in another forum, search did not yield results.
