Mentioning the umentionable...

I see that a Canon 5D (presumably the latest) at Jessops sell 2nd hand for 3000 bar a f**t.

That price would indicate it is a dam good beast. never mind buying a lens or two. Does that put into perspective the oly em X which might be as good a camera???

Being a poor (as in quality as well as pocket) wildlife photographer, (main aim anyway) I continually wonder whether the full frame might pay dividends............

Can't afford one anyway...

Dream on...……………...

Just think of the weight when you attach a decent lens.

Apart from anything else the lack of a WYSIWYG viewfinder on a DSLR would make it a non starter for me now.

Re: Mentioning the umentionable...

The Canon EOS 5D Mk IV is currently going for $3,654.00 (about 2,028.00) new, but body only, in Australia at present.

I can't help but feel that they must be about to release a new model. I have a fair number of decent Canon lenses. It is just the weight that scares me. - It is even heavier than my old Canon EOS 6D.
