Subject: Re: Canon 1D vs 5D

You'd be disappointed with the 135 sized sensor (the term "fullframe" is
complete bollocks, everything is "fullframe" for the format it's designed
as, remember that 135 is very small compared to real cameras which have
6x6cm frames or larger).
Combined with the EF mount you're getting quite serious edge distortion,
especially with shorter lenses.
