Hi to all. I need some help convincing the good wife why I need to upgrade to a 5D MII. Whatever I say, she does not understand, or does not beleive.

At the moment I have 2 50D's. I need 1, as I have an underwater housing for it. Will sell 1 to help finance the upgrade.

Any and all imput welcome. More than likley she will beleive you guys more than me.

By the way, she is an accountant.

Thanks to all who reply

Matt

No locations down under but I see they're in Hong Kong. Perhaps for a small fee, a POTNer could overnight her a few boxes. :lol:

Come on guys, your'e meant to be on my side here.

I would like to try and take my photograghy to the next level. Produce some larger prints. Less noise in low light. Better image quality. HD video (not that fussed about that really). Able to shot at 50 ISO.

Every thing I have read and heard about the 5D MII has been positive (exept the price).

And I promise to take her out for dinner either way.

Do you make money from your photography, i.e. a business?

What do you shoot?

Are you in debt? (she's an accountant, and will stop you on this alone :lol: )

Thanks for the link mtnbkr1. I now have it as a favorite. Laughed out loud when I opened it.

I know it will probably never happen, (the camera that is). I'm just trying to have a bit of fun with the forum and with the wife. But you never know.

with the 5d II you can get much wider angles that have more distortion, and if you use a modified 10-22 with an EF mount on it, and take a picture of your wife, she will have lost roughtly half her body weight in an instant!

Well if you have 50Ds but no 5D, then you probably need something that is FF or else you are missing out on (1/1.6)x100 percent of all the pictures/money you could be taking/making with that extra sensor size, right? :p

MG30D-thanks for the reply. At the moment I shoot as a hobbie, Though I do not rule out making some money in the future. I tend to shoot Landscape/seascape shots, though try and dabble in portraits/macro etc

Do you shoot at very high ISO, or want to shoot video? If not, how about a 5D classic to get into full frame. THEN, you can complain about it's faults and get a 5DmkII. One step at a time? :)
