Re: To Landscapers with 5DII

I used and KILLED several 5D1 (four) and 5D2 (two), still got one each. If it were me, I would go with saving the money for a TS-E 24mm II. (I have a TS-E 17mm to cover architecture and landscape).

If weather is a major consideration, I will go with a used 1Ds II or III. If I start afresh, I will go with the D800e instead. Now I am waiting for the 46.1mp 3DX, with a large box of L's.

Hi all!

Do you think that 5dII has everything you need for Landscape photography? If you had the bucks to change to 5DIII, would you buy 5DIII or invest it in lens?

I am going FF since I´ve got a 1DIV and need the wide angle view, so I am deciding to buy a 5DII or a 5DIII (no 6D). If I go with 5DII I won´t get an used 5DII because it´s a “small” difference in price (about 400€) but a big difference with the warranty (I work in wet and harsh places, so I better have a warranty).

Thanks for your responses.
