should i get a 5d if ive no L glass

Canon Camera EOS forum from -

Should I get an EOS 5d and just use my present non L lenses.

I know the standard well known advantages of full frame v apsc but do I really need L glass for a 5d

I have the following lenses that I use on a 550d including its"" no good on full frame efs ""18-55 iii

I was thinking I could just use the following lenses I have but im not sure it would be a good idea or not.

Canon ef 75-300 f4-5.6 iii

Canon,ef 28-105mm f3.5-4.5 7 blade

I also have manual focus lenses that I use often

Olympus OM 28mm f 3.5

Olympus OM 50mm f 1.8

hellios 44-m4 58mm

lens baby 35mm composer pro

Tokina sd 28-70mm f3.5-4.5

Tokina sd 70-210mm f4-5.6

and that's far

Ive got great results with all of these

One part of me says a 5d isn't that expensive and it would be fun to use with these lenses and I should get one anyway,as full frame quality is bound to improve matters

while another part of me says I would be wasting a perfectly good 5d with these lenses and I should get some L glass

What do you think

Regards Andrew
