Hi leon,

1 single exposure through the 5D is no different to a single shot through the 350D...however the 5D has much larger field of all depends on what you want to image and with what scope...their is no such thing as the perfect scope or camera as all benifit in different areas...for example...the 5D is terrific for Wide field imaging because of the size of the image sensor/ has no benifit imaging a single galaxy.

Bert has produced some wonderful widefield image using the 5D combined with a modified 100ED can produce the same fov images by using the 350D with a shorter focal length all depends on what you want to achieve....but answering your question between models NO it makes no difference on the amount of exposures needed to produce a nice image.
