Hi

After several weeks of debating, second guessing, hemming and hawing, ad naseum over the 7D, a 1D of some description or the 5D I have today, entered into adulthood, made a decision and ordered my FF camera. A 5D Mark II from Henry's in Toronto for an excellent package price will be sent my way next week. Cetrainly I will keep my trusty 40D as a good and reliable 1.6 crop. Have also ordered the 24 -105 lens and the 70 - 200 F4 IS lens. Yes, truly I am an excited man.

Blessings...
Lorne

why the full frame purchase? the style of photographing change that a crop sensor could not handle?

Congratulations twice!

Nice camera first of all and it is hard to get something reasonably priced from Henry's as well.

Thanks kindly. I shopped around a bit (actually a lot) and Henry's price matched with a USA competitor. I thuink I saved $800 CAD off of the posted Henry's price. I was surprised and impressed that they did this.

Thanks for the reply. In response to your question I think it is the 2.5 times larger sensor, the 2 times resolution and the fact that I am so tired of never getting 'the big picture'. Great comment though and one that I did ask myself. I did not jump into this purchase lightly. It was a real debate. I am happy, however with my decision. It also reinforced to me that I am taking my photography seriously.

Good for you, Im excited FOR you! I'm patiently waiting for Canon's next full frame offering and every now and then I load the 5d II into my cart at B&H and then I say, "No, just wait..." It's tough though, and my current bodies serve me well. Would love to have the big display and higher ISO's though. Enjoy your new gear, you've bought some really nice stuff!

Thanks kindly for the reply. Good luck with your own decision...mine was not easy as I debated waiting but I had the cash available now so I took the plunge. Hope I like the water....! Take care.

Hi

You entered adulthood and bought a full frame camera all in the same day? Impressive!
