Over the last 5 years or so, I have built up a collection of Canon gear including 5D body & battery grip, 17-40 L Zoom, 24-105 L Zoom, 4.5-5.6 70-300 Zoom, F2.5 50mm Macro, 580EX ll Flash together with Canon G12 and 270 EX Flash..... UV , polarising and graduated filters .... and batteries (6) for the 5D and (2) for the G12.
Due to continued ill-health I find that the 5D together with the range of lens is becoming too cumbersome to carry , plus the fact that I'm not hiking to those "out of the way places" to capture a lot of landscape photos.
My dilemma is whether to sell this gear and go for something a lot lighter and more compact to carry.
I am interested in the new released Fuji Pro X1, but do not want to buy the three (soon to be) available prime lens, but would much prefer one prime and a zoom. I am wondering if I'll notice any difference in image quality between the two cameras. Are there any rumours going around as to what zoom Fuji may be adding to this range ?
With the release of the Canon 5D Mark 111, I don't want to leave my decision too long as I can see the price for a second hand 5D will drop remarkably, if it already hasn't.
I would much prefer to sell this gear as one outfit, but it's probably not a practical way of doing things.... maybe it would be best to sell the items individually, leaving the 5D body and the 24-105 lens to last.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
