Switched from a 7D to a 5d2 a month ago, so I thought I'd post up a few shots.

So far I am loving it, it does have an edge over the 7D , the 17-40 is certainly better than the 10-20 I had on the 7D.

We've had a crazy month weather wise too which as been great for photography!

Wow, great shots Rob. I love the winter wonderland and Dyers pass sunset, they are just stunning! It certainly sounds like you have enjoyed the move to full frame. You'll never look back now.

I'm not 100% convinced as yet it was worth the expense, ask me next week after I've picked up the 24tse!

I guess the d800 is the obvious way for you?

D800? Sorry, that's a language I don't understand! My 5D2 has just been upstaged but is still doing good service.

Have a great time with that 24TSE, Rob...by all accounts it is totally stunning!

Awesome shots. Calendars or posters, all. KUDOS to you.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.

Yes...I bought a long lens for birding but was having difficulty with AF tracking. First shot sharp but when the birds take off...too many misses. Now I just need time to put the 5D3 to work.

As far as IQ goes...not much difference really.
