Re: Depends

I had the 5, the 7 and now the 5N. I wasn't very happy with the IQ of the 5, so I went for the 7 together with the Sigma 30mm, and whilst I was very happy with the IQ and especially the crop ability, there really was no way for me to justify double the price in regards to the 5N, which has IQ almost indiscernible unless you pixel peep ( and I pixel peep!) I made a thread with some examples of the differences. If money were no object Id get the 7, but if you're like me and on a budget Id get the 5N any day of the week. The price difference is one months rent (for me) and Id hate to be without rent, looking at that camera that takes SLIGHTLY "better" pictures on the table one day... Being a freelance painter and illustrator, that is a very real possibility!
