It's brilliant. Not 35L brilliant, but close enough.

Looks like we may be off in what I would need to throw in for cash. Canon screwed me by adding the 60d to the CLP

Wow only $640 on CLP...how bad do you want FF?

Think of it this way. If you go through with it you spent what you spent on the 60D + the extra for the 5Dc, so ~1300-1400 for the 5Dc.

And if canon releases a new 5dMKIII then that will make the 5Dc drop in value a little more, and a lot of people are going to be selling off their 5DMKII's. And if you want to sell it then you will lose more $.

You could sell the 60D for 850-900 on eBay or Craigslist though. And then you would loose less cash. But then how long do you have to sell it? There will always be more 5Dc's for sale later on too.

Oh man, tempted to sell my 50D for a 60D now...

Yep, glad I have one myself.

Edit: The flip screen is beyond handy for a lot of my shots and video.

Gotta figure out first if the swap is "worth it". This isn't a clear upgrade perse, as I'd be gaining and losing some.

On one hand, better sensor + video. On the other, (IMO) worse ergonomics and losing AF MA.

post #15637 of 29551
I was going to say something about the loss of AF MA, I want it, but I haven't had any problems with my lenses so far. And as for the ergonomics, I don't know how they compare, but using the dial to choose the AF point is a pain in the @55. It is awkward. Doesn't the 50D have the little toggle that does that? If so just stay with the 50D for that reason IMO. But if you are going to really want to do video take the loss and grab the 60D...or get a cheap camcorder. lol

50D has a direct-selection scheme with an 8-way joystick. Essentially, push it in the direction of the AF point you want or click it for the center AF point. Works very well IMO, and the loss of the joystick is one of my gripes with the ergonomics of the 60D (along with smaller rear dial).

Aha, I think my best option might actually to just wait out for monies for a 7D.

This. You won't like going from a 50D to a 60D for reasons you have already stated. The 7D however is virtually the same in terms of handling and ergonomics. However, the 50D sells used for well under a grand these days, leaving a lot for you to spend to get the 7D.

60D has the same thing, it's just a D-Pad instead. If it's really that big of a deal you can just super glue a nub to the D-PAD and it'd be the exact same thing...
