| p.1 #1 · choosing between the NEX 7 and Canon 1Ds mkII for a trip. |
Hi fellow FMers,
I am leaving for a 4 week trip and am putting together the photo kit I will be bringing with me; my choice is to either bring my NEX 7 with E and MF glass, or borrow a Canon 1Ds mkII; either would be used with MF lenses.
The only reason I am considering the Canon is that the very harsh environment I will be shooting in may damage the unprotected NEX body. Given the amount of room I have, I have to choose one of the two, and even though I prefer the NEX by far, I am worried.
My main concerns are a), being able to accurately focus MF glass on the 1Ds with a std matte screen and b), whether the mirror on the Canon will have clearance issues with the lens clearance: I will be carrying an Oly 21mm 3.5 and 50mm 1.4, mainly.
Your experience would be greatly appreciated; I have to make the decision without the Canon at hand to check for myself.
