Re: I've succumbed!

It's from Amazon...

Canon Digital SLR Camera EOS 5D Mark II + EF24-105 Kit: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics & Photo

The lens on its own is £843, so the body is effectively £1726.

Should be here tomorrow!

Re: I've succumbed!

I have a 17-40 f/4L which will do nicely for now. I'll see how I get on with the 70-300 IS before splashing out on an L-series telephoto zoom.

And I'll try to have fun!

Re: I've succumbed!

I'm only missing the last of those lenses, and I'd prefer something rather more compact!

Sue will find out when she reads my Facebook posts - or I may just cook a really nice dinner and tell her when her mouth's full.

Re: I've succumbed!

Mmmm.... I've sort-of promised to lay off the Amazon habit for a while, although "a while" is a little flexible.

Steve - Yes, I'll probably be looking to sell the 40D, Canon 10-22 and the Tamron 18-270. All as new, but I haven't thought of a price yet. One thing at a time...

Re: I've succumbed!

I am sure that you wll be very pleased with the camera and the lens is great as well. When I see the 5D2 images in Lightroom they still amaze me compared to my 20D and I have had the 5D2 for over 6 months now.

I was really surprised when I'd seen your Canon 40D and 18-270mm tamron for sale. But now I know why. Have fun Silky. Those FM's are big hey. I suppose you've got some homework for the next few weeks

Re: I've succumbed!

I've figured it out now. You just set the dial on the green rectangle and snap away.

Actually, apart from one or two extras like video mode (which I've not really tried yet), it's generic Canon and there isn't much new except the things I've missed.

The main difference from the 40D in terms of technique is getting used to the shallower DoF from the full-frame sensor. I'm trying to put myself back in "film" mode.
