Well, her face/eyes look a little soft (slightly out of focus), but you got good light on her. The background is a tad strange; I can tell it's a piano, but it doesn't look like you meant for it to be there. You also put the girl pretty much in the middle of the frame, which some people dislike, but I think it could potentially work for this photo. Overall, I'd say you've captured mood, which some people prefer over technical perfection (but some don't).

If you've only taken 50 shots with your dSLR, I'd say you're doing pretty good so far! I'd love to see another attempt at this shot with the girl's eyes squarely in focus. :)

Fangita, I would say low actuations, mirror fix done already would be nice, and a serial number that starts with a 2 or 3 which are the newer ones with the better LCD's I believe. Cosmetically, it's whatever you want, but if it has low actuations, the body should be in pretty good shape. My .02!

I wasn't the one who asked, but I'm glad you answered. I'm looking into one as well. Thanks for your input!

without sending it in to canon you have no way of knowing how many actuations a 5dc has unfortunately.

sat on my arse with my foot up lol

seriously though, it was using a 1979 helios 58mm f/2 at f2 ISO 3200 and using the VSCO presets (fuji 800z+ i think)

the lens was a fiver and the m42 mount about £8 so cheap as chips lol

Mr.Bill, those are 3 kick-ass images. Great work. Where is that tiger located? For a second I thought it was in my room! :)

Thanks. The tiger shot was taken at the local zoo.

Anybody want to sway me one way or the other. I'm looking at either the 24-105 f4l, or the tamron 28-75 2.8 + 100 f2. (the latter combo may even be cheaper)

I would like to have a nice walk around lens, but my money making is from portraits, so I don't know how well the 24-105 would be. I like the idea of the 24-105, but it is hard to invest in a lens that would just be so so for portrait shooting. I think I could use the 28-75 for walking around, and the 100 for portraits.

I could also sell my 70-200 f4l, and then buy 24-105 + 100 f2. Just a thought.

Thanks!
BTW, heres two for your viewing pleasure:
