So I've been wanting to upgrade to a 5D MKII ever since my 40D crapped out 8 months ago on the day Marcos was born (error 99, sent to Canon for repair). Then last week while shooting an event it suddenly quit focusing. I cleared all my custom settings/functions, switched battery/memory card and changed lenses and it worked again but it just makes me want to upgrade even more. Seeing as how I'm on my 2nd DSLR and my 3rd P&S my DH is refusing to buy me a new camera. He makes all the money so I can't just go buy one myself. I finally bugged him enough (and pointed out the small fortune he just spent on some stuff) and he said "FINE! Go buy your stupid camera!" Grrrr. BUT there are rumors of a 5D MKIII coming out. Not sure when, could be in a month, could be 6 months or even a whole year. He said if I get the MKII now there is no way I can upgrade again (um, controlling? Sheesh). I would probably sell my 40D and 2 lenses that won't work with the 5D to help pay for it. So I have 3 options I've been thinking about...
1) Get a new 5D MKII now (take advantage of the current rebate) and just be happy with it for years to come
2) Just keep using my 40D and wait until the new 5D MKIII comes out, then upgrade (could be a year)
3) Get a used 5D MKII now (for less than a new one) and use it for a year or so and save up to get the newer one when it comes out (then sell the MKII or keep it as a backup) I'm hoping to start making some money on shoots in the next year and doing some freelance sign language interpreting to make my own spending money so DH can't determine when/what I buy.
I just don't know what to do, help! Advice?
