The only potential downfall I see is that people like me that have a 5Dc and a 5D2 would see an inherent drop in value in these two bodies (moreso than we already have what with the release of the 5D3, though the 5D2 is on the rebound back up to more than the refurb price on avg for used sales, settling closer to the $1850 mark again from what I can see).

Just get a 5DII.
post #20033 of 29551
Nah, if the new offering is an upgrade on the 5D2 (full frame, not ancient auto focus, etc) and is between the 7D and 5Dii price, it's a no brainer.

Great lab, this is where I take all my film for dev, their prints are really good as well. Helps if you dump your ICC on the drive/disc you're gonna give them, like any other lab. If you're in the suburbs, Quality Plus Photo in Worth is also very good, and they do all the bizarre media like vinyl and aluminum (which can look very cool with the right b+w shot, albeit pretty kitchy). I would offer to do them myself, but I simply don't have the time these days.

Not a problem unless you are only into photography to make money by flipping gear. If you're worried about resale value, you probably don't need 'x' item as bad as you think you might.

I'm not in it just to make money flipping gear (If I am, I'm doing it wrong biggrin.gif ) but I understand where you're coming from.

It just sucks to pick up a body, and like two weeks later have its successor (after four years of nothing) get announced, and basically tank the value of what you just purchased. I had half a mind to return my bnib 5D2 and pick up a refurb since the price dropped to $1750, but I didn't because I'm not specifically doing this to make money. Alas, that will always have a chance at happening.

Economics, bro. At least it's not like the instant automobile depreciation when it leaves the lot.

The 5DII is fine for you. If you start making "the big bucks", then score a III and fuhgeddaboudit.
post #20038 of 29551
Yeah, I'm not disagreeing..

I am daydreaming about selling my 5Dc and 5D2 after May 19th to pick up a 5D3, but I don't have to do it.

Totally not worth it. I'd sell the 5D for another 5DII, or just buy another 5D altogether, but not a 5DIII.

What? Why? I don't understand why it's necessary to have more than one of the same camera.
