It was a real debate. I am happy, however with my decision. It also reinforced to me that I am taking my photography seriously.

Lorne

from what I've read in this forum, plenty of people are very satisfied with the upgrade, so you'll definitely enjoy your "adulthood" !

congrats

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

Not to pick on your words but why did you have to wait to adulthood to buy a 5D MKII when you have a 40D camera? Anway good luck on your camera;)

The adulthood comment was just an acknowledgement that I stopped fussing and made a decision. Thanks...

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.

Lorne

There are several choices to give an ultra wide view for crop cameras including 8-16, 10-20/22, 12-24, 17-55, 15-85, 17-70. You could have gone for the 15-85 and just kept using your 40D. And a 70-200 on aps-c is about like a 120-300 which Sigma makes as f/2.8 and is a very expensive lens.

So there were options for you that would have saved you $2000+ to keep using your 40D. The bigger image sensor gets you about 1 stop cleaner high ISO. Is that worth $2000? Or you could have gotten a 60D which has higher ISOs built into its firmware though you could simulate the same thing by just under exposing ISO 3200 on your 40D and pushing the image during photo developing.

And do you print so large that you need more than 10 MP? Even 10 MP can make excellent very large prints.

I have always assumed that Henry's would not match a US competitor as other retailers do not. It's great to hear. I will be making my next big purchase at Henry's, which is a 10 minute walk from my house.

<rant>if you saw the link to the site I gave the O/P (www.photoprice.ca (external link)) - Henry's is routinely on the bottom of those pages as too expensive - so yes - I do hope they price match for you as they did for the O/P because given their purchasing power of all the stores they have - obviously they have margin 'wiggle-room' to hopefully match better prices. I simply do not give them my biz, many other CND stores are much less $. </end rant>

I was actually really surprised they matched as they do tend to be on the expensive side. The same Macro lens I bought from the USA was at least $150 more at Henry's. But I took a chance, asked and they delivered.
