The newer Canons are far ahead of the old 5Dc

Let's talk about the right camera. There is no model called the 5D mark I nor is there a 5Dc, it's plainly the 5D!

With all due respect, we rarely label something as I, Mark I, or senior, until a II, Mark II, or junior arrives upon the scene. Once the Mark II arrives, it is much simpler to use 1, I, 5D1, or Mark I, than type a longer description. We know what it means, and it avoids confusion, as some folks use "5D" loosely, when referring to the current 5D model.

Moreover, unlike some automobile and firearms companies think, "Classic" is a title that is earned, not self-proclaimed. I believe the original 5D has earned the title of Classic. The early full-frame Canon DSLRs were a BIG thing in their day, causing much anguish among the Nikon folks, and at its introduction, there was nothing else like the 5D, the first light-weight full-frame DSLR. I do not, however, use "5DC."

To be clear, I did not mean this to seem argumentative.
