    Well after having days of convo w/ my buddy Schwettylns for days about it and seems like we're both heading toward the same direction (weddings) that a 5D MK II was the way to go. So pulled the trigger today as I have 4 weddings lined up ahead of me in the next 2 months :)

    I think it was a good investment to build my wedding portfolio and hope to make that money back next year :D

    Also went ahead and purchased the Canon 16-35 2.8L with it. Hope to show you guys some serious landscape photography as well since fall is coming.

    Damn... LOL.. I'll be where you are in maybe a year. I am still eating my ramen noodle everyday to save money. Hopefully I am still alive in 1 year from eating too much sodium.

    Little trick I learned in grad school: just use half of the seasoning packet.

    I picked up my 5DMii last Saturday. I shot the 24-70 with it on Sunday.
    There are some differences from the 7D, but I have time to learn. I am excited to take landscape/cityscape photos this fall.

    I also have 2 new lenses coming this weekend. :mrgreen:

    Nice :thumbup:
    Which lens are you getting?? I got the 16-35 2.8L for that wide angle shots. Comes real handy weddings and landscape.

    BTW, man I just realized those damn 16gb CF cards are expensive as hell! :er:

    Any suggessions for what you guys are using??

    I take it you'll be doing weddings. I don't, so I can't anticipate your needs. But I can say that I get 200 RAW shots on a 4GB card. Figuring 4x that for a 16GB card, that ~800 shots. That's a lot of images to lose in one fail swoop. It only takes a minute to swap out cards.

    I use SanDisk Extreme IV 4GB cards for my D300 & D700. If you keep your eyes open, they often run rebate offers.


    EDIT:
    Forgot to say Gratz on the new gear.
