On article Throwback Thursday: Canon EOS 5D (240 comments in total)

I bought a 5D Classic about nine years ago and it's still my daily driver. I'm just still very pleased with it. When I do upgrade, it'll be because of low-light performance and dust, but I still don't feel an upgrade on the horizon yet. It's just a great feeling, using a camera that I've gotten to know so well over the past so long.

I'm all for minimalist design, the whole "less is more" thing. But, looking at the top of the camera in Photo 3, that kind of less is not more, I think that less is just less.

$2,800 camera, $2 shutter release. A bargain!

While I'm not yet in the market for one yet, I'm very, very happy to see that camera manufacturers are jumping on the bandwagon of putting bigger sensors in smaller cameras. This can only lead to good things.

I'd love to have been a fly on the wall at the meeting where Nikon got on the floor and begged Lexar to help them get the ball rolling on this XQD thing.

In reply to:

makeitworst: Where the hell are the XD Cards!!??? I have Olympus cameras, GREAT Cameras, that are now media card Orphans because these jerk Flash Card makers adopt and DUMP formats at their whims! The largest XD cards that were ever made were 2GB! And those are nearly impossible to find! Even CF cards are becoming too expensive and hard to find (for older DSLRs like the early Nikon's before the switch to SD)!! There was nothing wrong with CF, considering the size they could have made 128 or 256GB cards by now!

This is BS!

I know I can't find cheap CF cards anywhere. Excluding every place I've ever thought to look.

A full-frame 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens for $200?

This means that Canon DID read all my letters I sent them!

For horizontal and square photos, it's quite nice. Vertical photos, not so hot. But so be it. They're finally trying. This only bodes well.

Can you adjust how many "blades" the simulated bokeh has? There are precious few lenses that produce genuinely round "orbs." Not to mention, the shape squashes a bit by the further from the center of the frame they are.

I'd still rather spend the cash on a fast prime and an ND filter. Better to create than to edit.
