| p.1 #1 · Canon 40D vs Canon 5D mkII |
Now some may call me nuts, but I have a bit of a dilemma on my hands.
I had a 5D classic (bought it secondhand with unknown mileage), always had the nagging thought in the back of my head that it might fail on me at some point. So, when I came across a 5DmkII with very low shutter counts with a 24-105 L lens for about $1000 less than brand new I jumped at it. I am very happy with it, but am far from being a pro photog (i.e. it is a hobby only). Now the nagging thought creeps into my head, do I really need all this resolution and MPness?
I then came across a 40D with extremely low shutter counts (less than 2700) from a reputable dealer (Henry's in Toronto) for $450 incl taxes and shipping. I also used to have a 40D and was pretty happy with the results.
Now, I guess the question is, should I keep the 40D, sell the 5DmkII and use the money to buy really good glass, or stay with the 5D mkII? I have been comparing the image quality between the 40D, 5Dc, Rebel XT, and 5D mkII and cannot (on my Apple 21.5" screen) see a huge difference in picture quality.
I am really torn now and would appreciate any words of wisdom.
