Quick question. Shooting on Saturday, forecast says sun with mix of clouds I'm thinking of going with the 250D stock. Haven't used it before and I was just wondering if it can handle sunny situations when there are no clouds (in case Sat. turns out to be an overly sunny day).

Thanks

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't have any ND filters. If its anything like today 50D is what I need, so I'll just cross my fingers and hope its not to cloudy on Saturday.

No, you still want to go with 50D if you are shooting on an overcast day. I have heard that EXR 50D sometimes had trouble in these situations because of its smaller latitude, but the new 5201 you should be fine with overcast conditions, plus you have the benefit of about 2/5 of the grain. If you're shooting 16mm, you'll especially want the 50.
