Anonymous asked: but i can't afford a 5dmiii so should i get 5dmii? or wait for the new 24-70mm. i know some photographers say that zooms aren't as good quality so should i get 5dmii and just use it with a 50mm?
Of the two, I would get the 5DIII and stick with a prime until you can afford a nice zoom.
Sharpness IMO is over rated. I doubt anyone would say the 24-70 is “soft” Only time I can see sharpness becoming soft is on my Zeiss prime when comparing center sharpness to edge sharpness. My 24-70 is sharp all around, mainly because its not as “prime sharp” to begin with :)
