    :D:D:D:D Man I'm like a little kid in a Candy store. I was trying to decide if it was going to be the 7D or the 5D for the longest however decided to go FF for both the main and the back-up so I went with the 5D. I can't waite to push this baby to the limit. Funny thing though since I got it about 6 hours ago, I haven't messed around with anything else but the video function...who cares about photography :lol:

    Having done a decent amount of video work myself, I would love to have video function in the next body I get. If only to be able to shoot with my specialty lenses. It's really stuff that you cant get out of a little handicam.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Oh man it's great..Now I just need Final Cut PP software now so I can edit the videos I take of the kids :D

    :lol: Maybe I should switch fields..

    I second that! I was thinkinig of adding this video feature on our products for our bride and grooms where I can have both video highlights and stills on video/slideshow that we give them. We'll see how that pans out :D

    Givin up on Canon ? If you are let me know b/c I need a second 70-200L 2.8 IS :D . My partner and I have been fighting over our 1 copy all the time for the ceremonies.

    Yeah Intempus...we'll believe it when we see it ;)

    Ok just took a test shot with the new toy and gave it a wurl at one of the harshest conditions you can do with a camera..shoot against the high sun. Not the greatest...just a little test shot to see what I got under my belt. I'm going to do some tests later with natural light during the golden hour
