Tiffy, you can probably use a P.O.S. EOS and get wonderful results.. :D

every time i wanted to buy a new driver or putter or new irons, my wife stated, "hey CT. it aint the tool, it is the fool that is swinging the club."

I call it "user error" lol

Compared to the MII, I just don't see how focus points, higher ISO performance, dual card slots, etc will help that much to improve one's senior photography.

I don't know you guys but outside AF points on my 5dc are pain to use even in good light. With cross points it will be much better (I think).

$3500 would go a long way towards paying off some of my debt, doing some work on my motorcycle and giving my wife a good present for her 40th birthday later this year...

LOL! Yeah, I'm not burning for it....I think it's the shiny new toy effect....I adore my 5D and would have a really hard tome parting with it or trading it out. I've not ever felt limited by it so I am happy to wait for a new camera.

I only have a 5D. Higher ISO would be a nice security blanket for the few weddings I do. Dual card slots would be a great cover your ass feature. And focus points, I shoot wide open almost all the time outside so the focus and recompose lots of times will kick my ass.

On a side note, my CS5 arrived today!! It was on the neighbors doorstep though so I lost 5 hours of playing with it. :) I love the new panoramic tool, its so much better than my CS1 version.

Right now, what I mentioned. I had a part fall off my motorcycle today essentially rendering unrideable until I can get it fixed.

CS5 is great, isn't it?

I think I am going to open that 5dmk2 which is lying in my closet for last 3 months. $3500 is too much for me. I can get one but I like working with atleast two bodies.

You want to trade that 5D Mk II for a $2800 laser rangefinder - lol

Was a hard choice between the canon and the laser. Having second thoughts now, wondering if the camera would get more use.

Mike,

just a suggestion... make the swooshes around the UM vertical instead of horizontal. it kind of looks like a word you probably dont want on a senior photo (or any other photo for that matter).

I liked the first one.

The shoulder seems to much in the 2nd. I tried cropping the shoulder from the second one, but then the hand looks like a center pedestle, and not just an arm and hand.

:cool:
