5Dc to 5Dii - Do I really need better glass?
Mar 20, 2012


So I'm still considering the upgrade from 5dc to 5dII.... when discussing lenses... I keep hearing that I'll need higher quality glass for the 5dII because of it's pixel density, etc.... however, I assume this is only when you compare 21MP vs. 12MP.... so just to confirm, my question is this:

Can I assume that the lower quality glass cannot look less sharp/clean on the 5DII when downsized to 12.8MP like the 5Dc?

This is rather important as I will usually only need 12.8mp, but would like the other improvements the 5Dii brings...

thanks again.
