Would YOU buy a 5D classic still or spend more for a 7d / 60D or other ?

Re: For $1600 you should be able to find a 5DII

The 5D is a great camera, but the 5DII has a lot of improvements over the 5D; and seems like you should be able to get one in great shape for around $1600. Bump from 12.7 to 21MP is nothing to sneeze at; in addition the higher ISO, the movie mode, LCD screen, etc all saw pretty significant improvements.


I bought my 5D II from Canon refurb site with the 20% off offer. $1400.00 with only 4 clicks. Be patient...they make the same offer throughout the year. It blows the 5Dc away even if you don't use the video.
