Re: 400D and a thousand photos later

Last week a poster traded his 5D for the 400D. I tried to do a search but the search engine is down at present. From what I read he is very chuffed with his downgrade.

The 5D has limited appeal to me as it is FF and since I enjoy birding, I would miss the 1.6x crop factor. Using the 400mm on the 400D gives me a FOV of 640mm but only 400mm on the 5D. Love to have one for landscapes and portraits though.

These are fantastic. I was just about to order the 5D when the 400D
was announced. If it's quality could be comparable, I would rather
have the less expensive camera and a third lens.

Do you have any experience or thoughts on the 5D?
