Why don't you just step back a bit for a crop body? compared to a FF.

Re: Why don't you just step back a bit for a crop body? compared to a FF.

As qwas pointed out, sometimes you just can't with architectural photography.

I do a lot of shooting in DC of buildings using a 5D with 24 mm TS-E. Stepping back means going across the street and contending with cars, street lights, signs, etc.

Of course, now you can just invest in the 17 mm TS-E to do the same thing.

also, many of the best lens are less useful in a crop frame camera. When I was shooting with my 300D, I found that the 70-200 f4L was often ajust a bit too long to be generally useful. On a 5D the zoom range is much more useful for the kind of photography I do.
