I have a few questions regarding the 3 cameras above, as Ive been offered a choice of 1 for my birthday.
Im far from a pro, i have been to a very short part time photography course where i used the mark 2 and found it to be user friendly but i havent had the chance to handle either of the above.
I do love photography and would like to in the future become more involved with it professionally or not.. I have no equipment this will be where I start.
So this is my dilemma 40D / 50D / 5D mark2?
1. Light meter, as with the mark II there is a light meter within when focusing on an object, does either the 40D/50D have this?
2. Apeture, with the mark II one can only use the expensive, L-series, if im not mistaken, lens which has a very low f. and great quality, is it possible to use thse lenses on the 40/50D and if so, get the full use of the lens
3. Is the difference in fps speed between the 40 / 50 d noticable if any
4. on the 50 is the noise issue still a prob at high iso?
Ive been searching the web for updated comparisons but its mid 2011 and the latest thread ive picked up is from 2009.
Im sure by now most have had experience with all 3 and could share some helpful info
