| p.2 #18 · Cheap upgrade from the 5D? |
Anthony: tell us about the glass....
You should really invest in glass..... in 1-2 years time you'll probably upgrade the body,but the glass will stay the same and , with the new body, even improve your results...
My 50mm f1.4 is almost permanently on my 5D...it is remarkably sharp. I use a 17-40L and 85mm 1.8 on my 40D a lot...again.....they seem pin sharp. I mainly use them at around f5.6 in a studio with commercial flash heads...ISO 160 normally. I have not bought a new lens for a few years now.
I can use any of the above on my 1V as well.
When I say the images are sharp I mean clumps of mascara on a model's eyelash sharp......
Anthony, I've a 40D, EOS-3 and those 3 lenses you mention and get great results as well. I shoot up to ISO 800, but usually between 100 and 400 and love the images... I'm just a hobbyist, do a lot of handheld shooting outdoors and like the 70-200 f4L IS as well. FF is a goal, the 6D my target, but I'd be happy with those huge photosites of the 5Dc, images from the 5Dc at low ISO are stunning.
