Now I am a little worried about the depreciation in price of the 5DII once the 5DIII comes out.

You just sold all your camera gear cause you needed money. Now you're buying new gear and you are worried about the depreciation of it, if and when a new model is released?

Seems a bit wonky, doesn't it?

Buy a used camera. Depreciation is already built in.


....the best camera is the one you have on you at the time.

I laugh when I read things like "I'm just a college student" and then they go on to buy $3k+ worth of equipment. Either you have some nice parents or you're one of the millions taking advantage of the student loan bubble :P

I have the 7d and 24-70 combo and im pretty happy... Apparently people find it not wide enough AND not long enough but I like it. You can check out my pics at eror11.deviantart.com, MOST are with that combo, i only ever sometimes borrow an 18-55 from my friend if I really need to go "ultra"-wide :P EXIFs are all intact there.


7D with 24-70

I wish I shoot for a living. I am a full time college student and just want to capture memorable moments :D

Your signature says 5D...

I am 23 now and I will have my 7D untill the day it breaks after it can no longer be repaired.


Only shoot wide open.

Now THAT is what I like to hear a young person saying ! Too many fall into the trap of thinking they have to be on the constant so-called "upgrade" path. The word upgrade was invented by and has been pushed by marketing types for so long now, that many folks think that if they are not upgrading then they are just not keeping up. Nonsense. Keep that 7D and try your best to master it. You can, with good glass, create gallery quality images with it.

Oh yeah, and welcome to the forum ! You look to be new around here.

My 24-70 is glued to my 7D, for now anyway. I am very happy with it, except that the lens, in combination with the 7D and grip, can get VERY heavy after a while.

And as far as the 18-55, I took it on a short family vacation (the lens is the kit lens from my T1i), and I have to say, that lens on my 7D gave me some of the sharpest pics I ever had with the 7D, I was very surprised.

Hey thank you! This is actuallyy second name here. I have about 600 posts under another name. This one is a fresh start as none of my namesake or personal work is attached to this, giving me freedom to be me :)
