5D vs 1D older models
Oct 3, 2012


I have 7D at the moment and it has served me well. I like the crop body and nice autofocus with especially wildlife shooting. I've just come to decision of maybe eventually buying a second body, a full frame. So I wouldn't ditch the 7D.

Which one should I buy: old version of 5D or 1D?

The newest ones are pretty much out of my price range, but there are some great second hand deals available for the outdated ones. As 5D and especially 1D are top-end models, I think they should perform well enough. Only considerations I have with the oldest models are if the high ISO performance is any good compared to for example 7D.

With the full-frame, I'm mainly shooting travel and street photography.

The budget is hanging around €1000 (In Finland it buys about as much as £1000).

Thanks in advance, Petri.
