I was going to get the 5D MKII but when I added the price of the camera with a grip and knowing I would have lost more money on my brand new 30MM Sigma i just got (ef-s)...I said forget it. I could not have cancled my ebay bid because 2 guys were bidding on the 50D and it had reached 930 usd, more than I was looking for. Also the fack that I was laid off Nov.30 did not help either on forking out 1.5K more than the 7D just to get my dream camera
Thats the scoop.
Okay, if you were happy with the 50d, why did you want a 5d mkII? Was there a shot that you just couldn't get with the 50d, did you need better weatherproofing, what?
Sorry to rub it in, but it just seems like an upgrade for an upgrade's sake.
Too late now. You'll probably love the 7d, but this is a lesson learned in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" category. On the plus side, you now own the best APS-C camera out there.
Sorry about the layoff, too.
