Canon 7D
Canon 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6
Canon 50mm f/1.8

B+W 62mm UV Filter
B+W 62mm CPol Filter

Speedlite 270EX + Diffuser
Giottos MT-9251 Tripod
Joby Gorillapod Focus


But I'm really tempted to switch out the 7D for a 5DII before even getting any nice lenses. I'm not liking this crop factor stuff.

You'll have to sell your 18-135mm though; isn't it an EF-S lens?

I did exactly that a year ago. But beware that AF on the 5DII is nowhere near the level of sophistication of the 7D's, plus you lose the wireless flash ability (it doesn't work nearly as well as radio triggers anyway) and the burst speed. For me it was a no-brainer since I don't shoot sports (much) and the trade off for the FF sensor made it very worthwhile. And despite the claims, IMO the 5DII is much better in terms of noise, as well as dynamic range and general IQ.

Yep, no EF-S lenses on the 5DII. If they were able to mount, the mirror box would be obstructed by the rear element and would vignette like crazy.

Actually I JUST bought the camera and that thing came as a kit lens, so I can still just return them together. No biggie.

Yeah I don't think it'll be a problem, I don't shoot sports either. Honestly, if it's really only a matter of losing the fancy AF and built in wireless flash, I think it's worth lowing them for the image quality and wider shots.

Yeah, but at the same time you lose that "extra zoom" from the APS-C sensor (again, no biggie if you don't need it). The other problem is that FF sensors record the entire image circle projected from an EF lens (as opposed to APS-C which sees only the central "sweet spot"), so corner IQ is worse, requiring really good glass.

For example, I briefly had a Canon EF 17-40 f/4L, one of the cheapest L lenses, and it had fantastic IQ on APS-C, but on FF, the corners were soft and full of CA.

Ideally, I would like to have an FF and a crop back up, but where is the money?

but FF comes with a HUGE price/weight penalty. the 17-55/2.8 costs ~900 stabilized. the 24-70 cost ~1100 non stabilized. tokina 11-18 costs ~600 while the 16-35L costs ~1500. were looking at nearly the same range, imo indistinguishable IQ at half the costs and thats just the wide end.

i went FF because of the bokeh, dynamic range and of course the IQ. plus the a700 only shoots at 5fps and has the nearly the same AF system as the a900, i didnt lose anything. unlike if i was shooting canon......

you can easily crop your images to get the reach + sweet spot. aps-c sized is about 8mp on the 5d2 sensor.

That might not be for everyone. If my own family is any indicator of what clients may be like, I think I'm better off keeping photography as a hobby.

"The flash isn't on, you should turn that on so the picture could be better!"
"Can you use your zoom lens instead so we can have nice pictures?" (Note: This was indoors in a dim room)

Obviously there's a lot of people on here that can put up with that and still make their clients happy. I'm not one of them, unfortunately. That and the only lens I have that's suitable for low light is my 50mm f/1.8.

tl;dr: For some people (like me), photography should remain a hobby.
