Do you have "Upgrade-itis"?
Dec 11, 2013

At my place of work, the IT department purchased a 5D Mark III. I made up a reason to book it and took it home to do test shots vs. my 60D (which I love). I think I had been expecting too much. In almost all scenarios, there was little difference (certainly not $2,000 difference). It was actually a relief. I was convinced that it would be a magical difference, but I did not see it.

If you feel the need to upgrade to FF, make sure you try to test a body (even in a camera store). If you are looking to be blown away, you'll probably be underwhelmed if you are coming from a body like a 60D. Spend your money on lenses - they always make a difference.

One man's opinion after reading way too much hype.
