5d or wait for the 5d MKII
And you thought I was serious?
5d is where I'm probably headed. I haven't seen any confirmation regarding 5dMKII...I assume its legit now?
I'm sure if its coming out the MKIII will be superior but lots of $$ more than a new 5d.
There's a member of this forum who has 5 5ds and her shots are pretty awesome.
Is accurate specs?
1) I would at least wait for photokina 2008.
2) It better be able to compete with the D3 in terms of ISO performance.
According to that link its probably going to be 3500.00 for the body.
I'm selling my Hughes and Kettner for aboot $1800 and I'm going to wait a bit and save some more. If the 5d MKII does drop, I'm buying it. If not, I may just look at a 1Ds MKII.
As in hughes and kettner amp? Damn.
Yeah for 3500 you could probably find used 1DS MarkIII
I was the one picking on the "what camera should I buy" noobies...
I thought you were kidding at first but wanted some feedback. I figured you could make your decision just wanted positive reinforcement.
I've played guitar like 10 times in the past year. I've been so busy that once the last band I was in broke up, I haven't had the time or the desire to try and organize a group of people together. Everyone's interested for like a month, then no one wants to do anything.
I'm even thinking about selling all my recording equipment and stuff. I did just spend $1000 on mics in December.
Well than you are in a good spot...Get what you can afford...You probably have all the lenses you would need.
My spot is I'm spending next 3 years building up equipment and would eventually need to upgrade camera...
30d is in budget but I would like to go Full frame so I hope the MkII makes th e 5d around 1300.
I seriously don't see them dropping below 1500 and maybe even going back up a bit once the rush to off load the old and go with the new is over. Keep in mind, the camera was $3000ish new and is still going for about $2200 new. It may hit the $1300 mark, but it would probably be a while.
