| p.2 #5 · Got new 5D Mark III but do I keep my mint 40D Body |
dude.. here's my honest advise:
I myself have a 40D it's my fastest crop camera---do own 20D,XTi & XSI., and I also compared 50D, T1i, T2i and T3i's IQ to my surprise the 40D is the cleanest in terms of noise from ISO 400 to 1600.... this is the reason why I kept my 40D.
my XTi and XSi been sitting around in my camera cabinet, they're are useful to me whenever I do a NOT TOO SERIOUS\CRITICAL photography, regular friend's party pics, some documentation stuff, a walk around camera, much like I used it as a point & shoot DSLR camera.
for my 20D & 40D I keep them with the big boys 1Ds2 and 5D2.... these are my serious IMAGE MAKERS... I still use my 20D and 40D there are things my full framers can't do.
here's my mentality behind this: I currently own two sets of Auto Mechanics Tool 1 set is from El cheapo Walmart $29.99 Made in China and 1 Set SNAP-ON Made in USA tools $800.00... The El Cheapo Walmart I use it for non cirtical stuff like maintenance on my El cheapo lawnmower, fixing kitchen pipings, all the crappy stuff.
For my 800 Dollar SNAP-ONs I used them on any automotive vehicles especially the Audis, BMWs and Mercedez the manufacturers of these made sure all the bolts and nuts are exact science... no mistakes! otherwise you'll messed it up. I will never use my SNAP-ONs on my lawnmower never-ever.
In short keep your 40D and buy a Sigma 30mm f/1.4 make that one as permanent lens., put it in different cabinet let it sit there. When the time comes for non critical shots take the 40D this is to save your 5D3 for non important stuff.
If you still want to sell it PM me righ away.
