I almost sold the 5d because I wanted to get the 100-400 back, so the plan was to get a 40D as the backup to the mkIII.....I got a guy who wanted to give me $1900 for it...This morning he called and wanted to meet up to do the deal.....
Right then my wife says to me,,,,Don't do it, I'll get you the 100-400, just don't sell the 5D, you'll just end up wanting it again, you always talk about how muh you love it.
Needless to say, I told the guy "sorry, no deal."
Slapped the 50L on the 5D and felt really, really good. Something very special about the 5D, hard to quantify, but it's a certain something about the images that even my mkIII doesn't replicate.
Man...I got the best wife on the planet. Took this image right afterwards
5D, 50L, 1/80th, f2, ISO800, cropped about 50%
