This is an inverse shopping question really.. rather what equipment should I buy.. what equipment should I get rid of, and how to decide.
Currently I have one full frame camera (5D2), and one crop sensor camera (7D). I've just placed an order for a new FF DSLR (5D4) which will leave me three cameras.
- Both existing bodies have their own pros and cons, e.g. AF/FPS, lowlight, image quality, full framey goodness.
- I use both my existing bodies for different purposes, however I expect the new one will take over all purposes as has all the pros of both my existing cameras.
- I do double body
- No. Really. I don't need three cameras!
What should I look at (including my existing work) to decide which one to get rid of?
(I'm trying to keep this generic and on topic as much as possible, so if you can provide comments for alterations/changes to bring this on topic please do!)
Bit more detailed stuff: 95+% of my work is fashion (studio and location) and live music.
When I use one camera (so the fashion work) I tend to use the 5D2 over the 7D because the image quality is far superior. HOWEVER if I just need to grab a camera, e.g. if i'm going away for the weekend I tend to take the 7D due to better straight from camera images (IMHO).
I double body whilst shooting the live music work, using a mid range zoom and a slightly longer zoom. The 5D gives me better low light performance. However the 7D gives me better FPS and auto focus. (The 5D4 should give me the best of both worlds and I expect will end up becoming my goto cam).
I find I rarely need the extra reach, and if I do I have an extender.
