That's the combo I am currently using. It's a great setup and you should be really pleased with it.

Just a heads up on my order from Cameta Camera. When I pay through paypal, I have to ship to my verified address, which is my home. If it is an expensive item and requires a signature I normally have to wait until the first attempt is made and then I can call UPS and pick it up at their distribution center that night. Unfortunately, Cameta specifically does not allow this. So I have to stay home so that I am here to sign for it. If it wasn't delivered in three attempts, it would be returned to cameta instead of being held at UPS. When I spoke with UPS, they said this was very unusual and they had no idea why it would be shipped like this if the item was paid in full.

I just wanted to make people aware that if they expect to be able to pick up expensive items from UPS, it will not be possible with Cameta. You will need to be at home the time of delivery.

Just to update on my experience with Cameta. Got the 5d Mark II and 24-70 along with other included stuff. Camera and lens are band new with USA warranty as advertised and everything looks great.

I only had a couple minutes to play with the camera before I left for work, but had a couple first impressions:

Wow! That is definitely a much bigger viewfinder!
Damn.. could they have spread those focus points out at least a little more? Does anyone bother using anything but the center point?
