5D vs 20D

that these are some extremely nice images!
It would be great to hear your thoughts on the move to 5D - besides
the obvious DOF that you really make shine.
And as an aside - where in Spain do you live? I visit Barcelona
from time to time, and will be there next week (with my measly D30).

Main difference between 20D and 5D is the FF sensor and its implications (DOF, larger viewer, very low noise : even at ISO 1000 is almost not noticiable...)

A practical exemple of implications in DOF:



This was what I was lloking for and it is enough for me. Other differences are not so noticiable (not for me). Perhaps the 12.7 Mpx vs 8.3 Mpx but I think this is not very necesary (if you are not planning to have print copies larger than A3)

DOF is very important for me. Now with f2.8 I have the DOF I need for most shots. So, I can use zooms (with 20D I was "forced" to use prime lenses all the time; now I use primes 50% of the time, but I also can use a 24-70 f2.8L and feel comfortable)

Larger LCD and a differnt system to archieve photos in folders as you wish are also very useful but it is not a buying reason.

Disadvantges vs 20D: price, FF requiers L lenses to work fine, speed (only 3 fps), no flash, no automatic programs. All this things wasn't a real problem for me... Worse thing is you lose focal lenght if you like tele-photography.

Comparing to 1D MarkII, the only thing I would miss is the 45 points of AF. But I don't like 1.3x crop, nor complicate menus, size and weight... With the 5D I can choose to use a grip to have a more consistent camara and to shot vertically, but also take off the grip to go on road.

Also I would choose to have always the ISO indicator.


P.S. I'm from Barcelona
