| p.1 #9 · Cheap upgrade from the 5D? |
Hi Anthony, if you're thinking of moving to a 1D style I'd seriously send Peter aka PetKal a private message. He has been using the 1D Mark IIN and the 1DSII for years and only recently picked up the 1DX. Note, your 5D and the 1DIIN have the same pixel size; 8.2, the 1DSII is 16mp and it's pixels are only a bit smaller.
What the newer bodies have over the older ones is high ISO; which you don't seem to need. the 1D3s seem like a great camera, but other than the IVHS I've never had a pro body. And i sold my 1V to move to digital; picked up a 40D and 70-200 f4L IS for it, I still have two EOS-3s tho
I'd be selfish if budget permits, and get a 1DIIN or 1DsII...but as above talk to Peter 1st...as far as the pagans go; flockem, film still rules kinda
Have thought about the 1D2N..research seems to suggest the 40D is better so far as IQ is concerned...
At lower ISOs; below 800, the 1DIIN is much the same as your 5Dc...we're so spoiled with the 40D, it's old but so sweet; and it's IQ is just a whisker lower than 5Dc/IDIIN. I'm just gonna wait for the 6D flush out, a firmware or two update to be released...I like the two piece style; body and separate winder. You can go light or heavier, best of both worlds. For me, FF digital will mostly be for nature/landscape/flowers and close-up/macro work, my higher FPS bodies can still shoot action....seems like an okay compromise, otherwise I'd move to the 5D3.
