Hey all! :)

 

I need a "smaller" camera for macro shooting, and i was thinking about the new 6D ll, but i am able to get a used 5Ds (5500 shots) for about 200 $ more.

 

Any of you awesome people got any experience with the 5dsr or if you just have an opinion I'll gladly hear it.

 

TIA Jakob

 

PS: Hope this is the right forum...? :unsure:

There is nothing small about either of those cameras unless your compairing it your 1DX and even then I would hardly consider it a smaller option.  On the other hand, I would prefer the 5DSR to the 6D II.  If you really want small then get a SL2 or an adapted sony a6500.

With my hands, they are "small" cameras. ;) Also why i'm not using Sony.

 

There are really good and bad things about both and that is why i'm a bit torn between them.... Thanks for your reply,

Two different cameras for sure.  I'd choose the 5DsR for two reasons; first the enormous amount of detail rendered with that gigantic pile of pixels gives you a ton of post processing options.  The second reason, mostly my prejudice, is the fact that the 6DII has only one memory card slot, something that is a deal breaker for me.  I've had one card failure since I got serious about this and that was enough to commit me to cameras with two card slots...period.

6d-ii does not seem to be getting very positive reviews from the early adopters.

Thanks again all. :)

 I use the 5DSR for macro work and it's great. What I found out was this camera really improved my technique due to the 50 mega pixel sensor as any shake really shows up. It just took a little practicing to figure it out, but when you do the detail really pops out in the photo.
