Full frame or not

4 months 1 week ago #690780 by 2guns
I’ve got a T5i. I’ve been using it verses an older XTI. I am shooting 90% landscape and nature. Video doesn’t matter. 
ive been eyeballing all the Canon 5d Mark ll cameras on mph site. Missed a few with 30,000 shutter counts. I’ve used a friends 70d a few times and really like it but wondering how much better the 90d might be. I’ve used the original Mark 5 once or twice but would like to go full frame. I’ve got some decent ef lenses that would fit both but have more efs which will not fit the full frame. Which would you go with for outdoor photography. I did notice that the older 5d with my canon macro does way better on flowers and color seems richer than the 70d. I’m asking the experts.  I’d like to have both but extra money could go toward lenses.

Go FF… what ever the make.
Good lenses are always the better investments.

That was what I was thinking. I know the newer asp have more focal points and features than my older T5i but the full frame has always seemed richer in color. If I didn’t have all these lenses I’d consider the Nikon

When digital entered the scene at the end of the F4 era,
Most my colleagues switched to canon… but not me.

Happy I did not follow the then trend… as always.

If you can buy both, buy them. However, the EOS 90D has a 32.5MP APS-C sensor that yields lenses 1.6x the telephoto limit they would have on a full-frame camera.

I totally disagree with your post, Naheed.

Sorry but suggesting to invest in two systems is not a very
good proposition… specially based on an untrue statement.

A crop sensor will NEVER yield a 1.6x that you suggest can
be gained in focal length, it just pre-crops the capture thus
reducing the AoV — angle of view.

That thing with the gain in focal length must have been a sa-
les pitch that stuck over time.

This.

And most full frame cameras will have an APS-C mode anyway that allows you to punch in. Useful for video, but with photos you might as well use the whole sensor and just crop afterwards.

You mean focus points?
I never use more than one… I don't get the fuss!

I was going to buy the 6D Mark ll but wound up going with the RP and adapter and my ef lenses with exception of the 18+135 kit lens that came with it. Really like the evf with older eyes. So far I’m more than satisfied. You are correct that no matter how many focal points I usually use just one but do expand if shooting sports sometimes. 
The T5i and the 80D served me well but I do like the full frame. I still keep the old Canon XTI with me most times just in case in bad situation if it gets damaged I’m not out much.  I still prefer the 80D for sports photography.
