What's up! Here's my story. 8 years ago, started off my photo journey by diving head first into Canon. Got a 7D when it was just released. Then quickly saw the advantage of full frame sensors and so I sold my 7D and picked up a 5D Mark II. A great move! Still the most important camera ever to me. It got me addicted to photography as well as videography. Paired that with a 50 1.2L and I was bliss! 5D electric circuits fried when I was in New York and got caught up in a huge rainstorm at Coney Island. The camera had to be sent in for repairs which I could not afford so I sold the camera before the repairs were complete and salvaged a bad situation.
From there, I went to Nikon for a few years (they were leading in camera development) then Fujifilm (amazingly small with high quality), got a new job, and then I dived into Leica. Leica was a really interesting experience for me. The size and discreteness are what drew me to it. I had to change the way that I shoot and think about photography and I am so glad that I did. But I am continually drawn to video and action photography (kids, sports, etc.) and so I sold that system and now, this week, I used the money from my previous investments and I have chosen to buy a Canon 1DX MKII with a 16-35 2.8LIII.
It comes tomorrow. Just wanted to share some exciting news to fellow Canon lovers.
I'm back! Have a great day!
