If planning to buy a full frame Canon......what to do?
I am still struggling with my wide angle lens question (see thread in the lens section) which was the starting point that I looked even deeper into this and now have another problem
Actually I wanted to have a wide or ultra wide angle lens for my 600D and after a lot of reading, help from the forum and even some tests with the sigma 12-24mm lens which I actually like, I am asking myself now the question whether I should already now with the lens switch to a full frame camera.
I think it is fact that the canon 17-40mm is quality wise much better than the sigma lens however it is no point bung this canon lens for my 600D because it will be far from a wide gale lens.
I tried the sigma lens with my camera and that was quite ok but I could have it even a little wider because with my camera it is at 12mm really 19mm.
I played already with the thought to switch to a full frame camera in the future and actually I had a 5D mk3 in mind because it is much faster than the mk2 which is important I think for sports, fishing photography etc.
The thing is that I will not buy a mk3 for the current price which means I would have to wait at least something like 1 1/2 years. Therefore I was thinking if I would be satisfied if i would buy now a mk2 with a canon 17-40mm lens?
I did already quite some reading about comparisons between the the 5d mk2, mk3 and also 7d and it seems that the speed is the main disadvantage of the mk2 compared to 7d and mk3.
How is the mk2 with respect to high ISO because this seems the other main disadvantage compared to the mk3?
I am grateful for any comments, suggestions or ideas regarding my not easy situation.
Thanks and regards,
