What do you want to shoot? What do you want to do with the camera?
Do what I did, switched to an XTi
Just a good all around camera. I like landscapes and rundown urban stills, portraits, maybe weddings eventually, events, motorsports, architecture, etc.
I just want a camera that will do it all.
Maybe I should just keep the 30d?
Monies is tight?
monies is always tight
you lucky dog.
keep 30d buy 5d2
fiscally not possible.
It is really worth 2 5d classics?
Landscapes - 5D2. FF, 21MP, and 16-35 or 17-40 = win
Rundown Urban Stills/Architecture - Same thing as a landscape but now its buildings. 5D2
Portraits/Weddings - 5D2 again. Obvious low light king as it stands now. The 5D was the cornerstone of wedding photography and the 5D2 is all that and more
Motorsports - 5D2 again. FF when you need it and you can crop the shit out of a picture for added "reach" and still have a 10MP+ image.
Really, the only time I probably would have suggested something different is wildlife. Then I was have said MkIIN
Meh...Its hard to say really.
Now that I have mine, I can say that I havent picked up the 5D classic since. It really is an amazing camera.
I guess in the end, I would say it is worth two 5D classics.
However, if you cant quite afford the 5D2, I think youd be better off getting a 5D classic and a good lens. Aside from the 5D2, the 5D takes the most wonderful pictures Ive ever seen and require the least amount of PP (althought I havent even really had a chance to shoot with the 5D2 below 6400 ISO )
The 5d would be the only thing worth upgrading to.
I've only got a 24-70 L right now that would work on a FF cam. Wanting a 70-200 f/2.8 IS, but I see myself making more monies shooting ppl. Maybe I'll just invest in a nigh lighting setup and keep the 30d. I'm all over the place
fuck it, ill just keep the 30d and invest in some nice lights. I can shoot portraits and headshots for monies, then upgrade my gear with that.
What exactly is wrong with the 30D?
Get a 5D. Got mine yesterday and played around with it. The pictures it takes are just beautiful. Don't see myself using the 40D much anymore.
nothing. That's why I think I'll just get lights.
get a 85mm 1.8 for portraits. Saves you a ton of money than buying a new body
I wish I had something better than the 30D just because of the ISO performance.. that's why the 5D2 is so appealing, but I'm not gonna pay MSRP.
you are really just itchy to buy something huh? You can admit it, we are all like this
I'm usually not that bad, at least since I got my car.
I'm no Girth or JColman tho.
