Would YOU buy a 5D classic still or spend more for a 7d / 60D or other ?
Apr 25, 2012

I have a 50D and 600D but was interested in trying FF. I have read threads that talk about a special quality the 5Dc images show. My main lens on it would be the 35L.

There are a few 5ds showing up locally at US $800 - $1000 or about the same price of a 60D

Any advice or opinions most appreciated.

ps - I am a slow shooter - only people and landscapes. I would possibly sell one of the other two cameras AND could also look at a used 5D2 if I sold in advance of purchase.

Also to be honest my search of images with the magic 5D look have not shown up anything spectacular - if you have seen a sample I would love to see it too.
