I would get a 50 or 35mm prime and a 5Dmark iii
You will be set for a long time. I had a 5dii and when I upgraded to the the iii it made it easy to stop my kids in their tracks. Your lil dudes gonna start getting fast real soon ;)
The 1.4 or 1.8 prime will be great indoors for low light shots. Just my 2cents.

Youve either got cheapo canon lenses or youre not focusing correctly then....
Many of canons lenses are VERY sharp....what a silly statement.

hi, i'd say i'd be mostly shooting kids in a studio setting inside and outside... then some wildlife thrown in, and a bit of landscape. I have a 70-200 L lense maybe I should be shooting with this instead of the 24-105. Or like others have said more practice !!!


5D MK 11, 24 - 105 L, 100mm 2.8 Macro, 580 EX Mk II, 70 - 200mm 2.8 L IS usm, 350D with Lense Kit. - New Years Resolution - Take at least a picture a day!!:cool:

Upgrades are fun, but the 5DMarkII is top notch. Still my primary camera.

I'd personnaly go for the mark II but adamg5 is right ... 5d mark iii will sure be better in tracking them down :)

AF wise there is no comparison between 5dmk2 and 5dmk3. It helps when shooting kids even in non AI servo mode. 5dmk2 has what like 1 cross point. My main reason not to like 6d compared to 5dmk3. But all depends on the budget, if it allows, why not.
