I would probably give up photography if all I shot was used gear and high school football games.

Get out and shoot, or at least post some of what you're seemingly holding back -- photography is best when shared, you have more gear than anyone here and post so little. There's gotta be some gems hiding behind the monetary worth of what some of us drive to work.

NOTHING OF VALUE. Mostly stuff for sale. Haven't been shooting anything recently, but I'll bring the M6 to school tomorrow just for you.

Just thinking to myself - i cannot afford it right now but anyhow.....

Most of my photos are landscapes.
Currently using a 550D - as an upgrade - should i be looking at a 5D / 5DmkII
Im using a tamron 11-18mm lens mostly so id need to upgrade that too - so thats more expense....im just thinking out aloud.

Also - just posted this: http://www.overclock.net/photography...l#post14986205

Looking for advice re wedding photography

I much prefer medium format for landscapes. The picture quality is superior to digital, and you get a lot more creative control. Plus, developing by hand is half the fun.

You can get a Mamiya 645 + 45/2.8 lens for a whole lot less than just a 5D body.

Anyway, just a suggestion.

Hm, Wal-Mart doesn't immediately come to mind when I think about "street photography." I know everyone can't be lucky enough to be in or near a large metropolis (myself included), but take a short trip somewhere, where there are actual people on the streets. I suppose you could practice at Wal-Mart, but you're likely to get some strange reactions.

And some of the most legendary street photogs used manual focus only, but it will be challenging. A split focus screen, or least a high-precision screen like the EF-S screen would be ideal.

Oh and the DK-17M is very very nice on a 5DII. VERY nice. Rivals an OM-1 body probably. Fricken huge.
What did you have to do to adapt it to your 5DII? Any decent magnifiers made for Canon?

I have to agree here dude. A gear recommendation from you would go a lot further with examples of usage in a variety of different situations, though think a lot of your sports work is very good. Put up or shut up.

GT, the 17M fits Canon bodies. I bought one on a whim, it's alright... but nothing can save Canon's terrible eye relief.

It's really cheaper than digital unless you shoot all the time or have a habit of taking hundreds of pictures at a time. $500 would get you a decent MF setup, versus 1100 for a 5D + 600-800 for a decent wide angle lens. That extra 1200-1400 dollars would buy you a TON of film. You can always send it off for development if you don't feel like doing it yourself. I still do that for color.
