I just checked .. I bought the 5Dc at ~3700 clicks and I am currently at 8154 clicks; thats ~4000 clicks in one month .. averaging 133 clicks/day :D

Oh, but what fun it is to take her out and listen to that mechanical click. She records awesome landscapes, and better portraits (or is it the other way round). She doth like the good glass and shines anywhere from 100-1600 ISO. Neither heavy nor light; just about right with that grip and the hanging 70-200.

<3 5Dc <3

P.S. Just bought a 70-200 2.8 to go with the 7D, let's see if I can say the same about it

Here's one of the father-in-law .. he's quite photogenic

I know how you feel, when I first got mine, I took 5500, but that was at Disney World. For some reason my family thought that was a lot.

To the OP, congrats on your 5D acquisition. I also purchased one a few weeks ago and have found the 7D/5D combo to be loads of fun.

Congrats Freddy :D Glad you enjoy your camera and hopefully you will too for your new lens! Great camera, I've just ran into two photographers using the 5d classic during my last trip. Amazing viewfinder, something that my 7d can only envy :D

I bought a 5Dc sometime ago...
and loved it

I had a 5D2 and a 7D as well at the time - the idea behind the 3rd body was for remote triggering and 2nd body for assistant at weddings
As each day passed, I played with it more and more... a few little things I didn't like about it (in comparison to the newed 5D and 7D) but I grew to love it more and more... I ended up using it as my 2nd body more than the 7D... and recently had an opportunity to 'trade up' the 7D to another 5Dc - and I jumped at it!

OP, great pics. It really is great camera. Mine has been with 24-70mm lens for months now. Colors/saturation has been amazing right off the camera.

So you are tell me, that a Canon Camera is your lover, wife and G/F all in one OH my where is the common sense in that?. maybe some members here need to see a doctor

My camera don't rule me it's just a DSLR Canon camera with no Human feelings. this is not the first post I have seen with a silly title, the other one was call I lay her down for the night members who want to give a good feeling of there cameras should use common sense. or see a doctor,

Who said anything about laying her down for the night?? We haven't slept since we got together ... bw!

I've had a few hobbies, but none this satisfying (no, THAT's not a hobby; its a habit :lol:). I love the hunt, the chimping, the heartache, the joy, the painfully slow downloads, the completely chock full hard drives, the PC overheating lockup, the POTN and CL surfing for glass, the haggling, the *like* on FB, the painfully wrenching desire for objects like the 400 2.8L, etc., and knowing I am not the only dork who talks to his/her camera. And damn it, it is a work of art, I love how it looks and feels and what it does :)

Above all else, my cameras don't go to MACY's and buy shoes for no reason ..

:lol: Really CanonEOS, have you never caressed your DSLR .. does she not make you happy? Does she not make you randy? :lol:

Strange that our posts were removed, I didn't think there was any unusual banter going on, nothing more than what goes on in other threads, very light-hearted and humorous. Oh well....

Your 5D's dad looks like a funny guy! ;)

I have had 2 5Dc in the past (just sold the last one), I really liked it too, but after you use some of the newer bodies, you really start to feel the age of the camera. The IQ is great though!

Yes, after using the 60D and 7D she does feel a little old at times, but then, makes up for age with quality :)

Now that I am back to a 7D as a backup, I feel the same way with the 1D4. I really now am convinced that the 1D4 should have just been labeled the 1D3n, it brings about 3 or 4 improvements to the 1D3, but feels and acts and is controlled the same way as the 1D3. The 7D has more modern configurable buttons, more interesting little features and functions, etc.

If they bring alot of this to the table with the 5D3 and 1Ds4, they will be spectacular cameras and the demand will be quite high for them.

Indeed.

I keep wanting to jump up to a 5D, seems like it would be a great choice...
