Re: why did you buy a 5D?

To say that the reasoning behind purchasing higher performance equipment is seeking gadgets status is not justified for large spec changes between cameras like the 5D.

If you print large nothing replaces the original data like real pixel info. The 5D MK II certainly has this, enough pixel data for very large prints at 17" wide or larger. The 5D original starts to lose it at above 13" wide. Still acceptable but exactly that an acceptance of artefacts, and a digital up ressing apparent.
