    New Rig - Full Frame Yummy Goodness...

    I've been shooting with crop bodies for the better part of six years; first a Digital Rebel, then a couple of 20D's, and then a 40D (with a 20D backup). I was doing, primarily, concert photography, so the crop sensor wasn't a horrible thing to have. I've been doing more landscapes as I travel, though, so I've been toying with the idea of going full-frame.

    Well, I brought home my pre-pampered 5D today. I found a good deal on one, with the grip, up in Orange County, so I gladly made the hour drive. The full-frame will take a little getting used to, but I really think I'm gonna' dig it.

    Anyway, I thought I'd share the first photo from the 5D. This is Bizzie:

    I feel sorry for people who don't drink. They wake up in the morning and that's the best they're gonna' feel all day...

    NIce, is it a MkII or previous model? Both are very capable cameras. I'm still on the fence as to the benefit of video in a DSLR.

    Hi to Bizzie!
    No, it's not the MK II. Honestly, I have zero interest in doing video, so I didn't see a compelling benefit to the MK II.

    I'm seriously diggin' the 5D. I do a lot of concert photography, so I'll be seeing how it does on Sunday; shooting Barenaked Ladies and Goo Goo Dolls in Saratoga Springs, NY. Everyone's told me that the 5D is gold at higher ISO's, so, we shall see!

    canon fodder, you're definitely gonna love the 5d at higher iso. the noise is gonna be somewhat minimal compared to the xxD and XXXD lineup of canon.
    one thing you might miss when doing concert photography though would be that extra range that a crop body would provide you with. but all in all, that 5d is a rock solid contender!

    like tomee said, once you go full frame, you never go back!
