| p.1 #1 · Ameteur Considering a Switch to Canon |
Trying to decide what exactly I want to do, but need some help. I have long since wanted to move to FX, the viewfinder is amazing for manual focusing, and I prefer the 1:1 FOV. I had owned a 5D for a month or so and absolutely loved it, but unfortunately had to sell it again.
My current setup:
D5100 + 28/50/85 1.8G trio, and the 18-55VR kit lens
Manfrotto legs + head
I *mainly* just shoot candid landscapes and events, with the occasional paid shoot here and there, but do not rely on getting paid. I have been setting up my lens selection for an FX frame, but I don't see being able to afford any FX Nikon bodies for a while. There have been several very clean, low mileage 5D's coming up for sale recentliy, and I can not decide if I should make the switch or not.
Since I am not familiar with many of Canon's lenses (but prefer primes) I would probably start out with the 17-40L + 100/2. I do not ever use video, or 80% of the gimmicky features of the D5100, but I do like the files it produces. I very much appreicate the stripped down feature set of the 5D, it just [helps] make great images, and some of my best were from that month that I owned one.
What would you do?
