EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Thinking of downgrading my 5d3 system
« on: January 13, 2013, 11:06:21 AM »
as has been said before, keep the gear, unless you really need the money, and buy a small point and shoot, there are so many really good models out there now.
We all go through phases with our hobbies, one day we're right into it, the next we don't care either way. Chances are, once you've sold all your gear, there'll come a day when you may really regret that!

Canon General / Re: How do you store your gear?

I use 3 Pelican cases for home storage and a number of LowePro when I'm out and about.

have a read of this regarding the EF 2x extender and what you need to be aware of.
I have the EF 1.4 and I like it for wildlife.

Technical Support / Re: CANON 5D MK II problem
« on: January 10, 2013, 02:44:39 PM »
unless your camera is still in Warranty, Canon USA, in Irvine CA charges a minimum of $219.00, they call it Out Of Warranty labor charge, plus shipping, about $15.00.
That charge though includes checking out the camera's functionality, cleaning and resetting to factory specs. If any additional parts are required for repairs, these will be added after you have OK'd them.
My 1DS MKII required a new shutter assembly, failed after about 212000 actuations, total cost to me was around $500, still cheaper than a replacement body!

Lenses / Re: 24-70 or 24-105
« on: January 09, 2013, 08:12:56 PM »
I have both, although the 25-105 is a relatively new addition to my arsenal.
I love the 24-70, but find that the 25-105 seems to be a better walk around lens!

Software & Accessories / 5D MKII CD?
« on: January 04, 2013, 09:42:11 PM »
I recently purchased a secondhand 5D MKII which did not come with the original CD.
Is there anywhere where I can get hold of an original or copy, thanks!
