    Hello
    I'm about to move from my 20D to a 5D and one of my concerns is if my actual and only one lens, a 28-70 f2.8L, is good enough for the full frame: I switch mainly to take advantage of the full frame and I don't want to find myself disappointed discovering that my lens is not good enough for the new camera: anyone has first hand impressions on this topic?

    thanks in advance
    Fabio

    if the 28-70L isn't good enough for your new 5d, I'm not sure what lens in that range would be.

    Can others edit my Photos:

    You will notice that 28mm is truly 28mm with the 5D but I would consider that a plus. I agree with John here - You have a top of the line lens.

    Well, your problem will certainly not be that the lens won't be good enough for the camera. I suppose it would depend quite a bit on what you intend to take pictures of.
     
  5. That's a stellar lens with a great camera. Go hug your equipment.
