Re: Has anyone here stayed with crop frame because of the Sigma 18-35mm?

I stay with a crop for the 18-35 and I feel no reason to jump to FF.  I do events and have NEVER had a client that was not thrilled with end product, not one.  I have never seen anyone outside of this field that could tell the difference between crop and FF or cared (yes there are some).  No matter what some of the people will say FF is more money.  I can use my Sigma 50-150 2.8 OS for less then half the money as 70-200 II and its sharper** on my 70D.  So for me I will stay with my 70D for at least 3 years then see where the market is.

Also the equivalence idea is a bit over done, yea the 24-70 will cover the same range+ and have the same DOF but  its still just about 1.5 stops slower which negates much of the 2 stops advantage the 6D has. The 18-35 is a 1.8 Tstops while the 24-70II is 3 Tstops**.
