Hello everyone, Thanks for taking the time to read my first post. I am an armature photographer who would like to move toward photography as a profession. I am signed up for some classes starting in the spring to expand on my knowledge base. Right now I am using a Rebel T3, which has been great to learn on, but feel I need to upgrade to make the next step. I have targeted the 5d mark III as the Camera I want, however, it will be awhile saving for it, and I have been told that I should look at getting an older full frame body to practice with while I save. There are some used 5d Mark II body for sale in my area $500-$900 CAD, but I am hesitant to spend that much money on a Mark ii when that money could go toward the Mark III. I guess my question is, should I get the Mark II and get used to using a full frame body while I save for my dream Camera, or continue to save and use my T3. Would I notice a huge difference between my T3 and the Mark II? (that might be a loaded question sorry). Thanks again everyone for your advice and opinions!
