5D classic worth it ?
Aug 12, 2014

Hi everyone,

I currently have the opportunity to pick up a used 5D (50K clicks, looks worn but has been checked by a reputable camera store) and a slightly damaged, but optically fine, 50mm 1.4 for 600$.

I am seriously considering it since I wanted a fullframe for a long time, but couldnt justify the cash for a 6D and the extra lenses at the time.

Naturally I don't expect it to be as speedy or feature rich as my 70D, but I was wondering if this is a good deal, and if the two could coexist ? The usual price for a used 50/1.4 is 300$ over here, so I would effectively be getting the 5D for 350.
