I was happy with just my 5d mkII and my one lens. Telling myself that this was all I needed to enjoy the photography I was learning/doing.
But then along came POTN and the wealth of information about the advantages of F2.8 over F4.0 and the amazing new Canon F2.8 70-200mm IS MkII. Of course I wanted one (didn't necessarily need one). Fortunately logic prevailed and the $2500 price tag said I just couldn't justify it.
Mind you I did rent this lens recently and did like it!!
But then along comes POTN with the info that Adorama is selling them for $1974. So I did what I really wanted to do all along and justified buyiny one because of the money I would save!!:p
All that to say I just put the order in with Adorama and will hopefully have it by the end of the week. Why can I buy this $500 dollars cheaper in the US than Canada? Ah well, I am more loyal to my pocketbook than my local retailer (I did call them and ask them to move on their price - but they wouldn't budge.
Now, I haven't told my wife yet - one dilema at a time. Thank heaven shes out of town at the moment!!
