Hi all, I posted earlier in the year about whether I should get a good EF zoom / kit lens for my EOS 350D, then get an EOS 5D MKII body. I had some helpful replies.
My main issue is that I WILL NOT (in the current climate) borrow money to buy an expensive camera. Sorry kids I sold the telly.
I've fancied an EOS5 MKII for a while and I have almost got the cash for it. The bonus of waiting is that it seems to keep going down in price (most unusual) Currently £1490.
I see that they have released a MKIII version of the camera, at a similarly unattainable price that the MKII was, and to be honest I don't think I can justify the extra cost and time taken to save for it.
I would like to know if the majority still think this (MKII) is a camera worth having. (I am old, and barring a LARGE lottery win, I do not think I will be getting another camera soon, so this will have to last me.
The ES350D is 6 years old and has been a great camera, but I'd like to go Full frame. The newly released 6D is a bit of an unknown quantity at the moment, seems to also have lots of lights and bells that I may not use.
If I found the MKII eventually limiting I suppose I could part ex, but there are only so many lights and bells I can use.

Any thoughts on this?
