Great capture. Love the high-def look.

All time sentimental favorite camera is a black body 1974 Canon FTb-n with the FD 50 f1.4 breech-lock lens.  It's my first 35 and the camera that got me hooked on photography.  Next favorite is the Canonet GIII QL17 (40mm 1.7).  Both are simple, manual, nothing fancy, tough, no battery required (except for the meter) cameras that were fun to use.

But, my current favorite is the 5D3 with the 70-200 f2.8L II.  Never ceases to amaze me what this body can do in tough situations.  (Shh...a year ago, the 7D was the favorite that didn't cease to amaze.)

I'm in late 30. I got into photography 5yrs ago. I don't know much about film camera, but I LOVE the look of old-vintage camera bodies.

I wish Canon would make some FF mirrorless, looks like your "Canonet GIII QL17". I will be the first one on pre-order list :)

@ OP - looking at signature, I don't see any fast primes, macro, and UWA lenses yet. You are far away from done :P

My favorite gear changes from time-to-time, mainly depending on what I shoot.  The 5DIII has been a mainstay since I bought it, though, so that's probably the best answer.  If we're talking about gear love, though, my 300 f/2.8 IS II holds that title and has since I bought it several months ago.  My body is still a wreck (major neck/shoulder/arm problems) but what little shooting I've done lately has been with this lens.  I love the way it makes even mundane photos look amazing and I've been shooting portraits with it lately and love the results.  I know you sold yours for the 400, but the 300 has found a happy home with me :)

Hope you get better soon mackguyver.

300 is an AWESOME lens - period.

Add one of these, maybe both: 85mm f1.8 and/or 135L. Don't forget to remove the flash from the camera ;)

If you bought it from an authorized dealer, then you should be fine. Just go out take pictures and have fun with it

These images are from our 2 hour cruise, off the Phillip Island Coast (on the very friendly Wildlife Cost Cruises), Vic, Australia ... we are told that this little island is home to around 14000 Fur Seals ... it was quite an awesome experience to see so many seals in their natural habitat ... although these images may not stand up to some of the awesome images posted by other members, it is one of my truly best memorable experience for  me.

-1....your photos tell the story.
Thanks for sharing Rienzphotoz ;)

I'm sure you guys still remember this ::)

To be honest, I'm one of those thought Canon going to have something in vintage as well. Last time I check, Df didn't do welllllllll

I think it didn't do well because of the borked controls, not because it was "vintage". I'd welcome a Canon vintage body design, so long as it did not include the hideous stacked dial controls and...well, basically kept the phenomenal electronic controls and button placement that is now standard on Canon pro bodies, just in a nostalgic retro body design. And, yes, with out any video features...at all... ;o)

In the end i have decided to drop the idea of getting vintage lenses. Good ones are as expensive as EF lenses, plus the cost of adapters. I'll be picking up a used Canon EF 28-135 next week for 200€. It covers almost all the focal lengths i'm interested in (except 24mm), and i'll be able to sell it with few (if any) loss. Thanks everyone for the advice. :)

I think you made the right decision.

+1...if you not in hurry, wait for x-mas holidays. BH has great deals on EF and L lenses.
