Bit silly using it on a job if you dont know the camera.

I would use your previous camera that you know well and experiment with the 1DX until you are confident with it.

I really want to go full frame by the end of June as I am the photographer for a wedding at the end of that month, but I am on a very tight budget. I would like to buy the Canon EOS 5D Mark II and the 24-105mm lens; I live in the UK and would like to know the best way/places of getting this camera and lens at the cheapest price possible. Yes I understand this may mean not getting this equipment new.

Thanks very much!  :)

I would very highly reccomend London Camera exchange, they can be fonud almost anywhere in the UK
great quality, loverly and informed staff, and usuially opening for bartering c;

I say just add a couple more pins to the mount, some speciality portrait lenses and the high mp camera with the extra pins to compensate, why not?

Since I upgraded to FF I'm not shooting much at longer focal lengths and rarely use my 300L or 1.4 teleconverter. I shoot some portaits, macro and am doing more landscapes. Here's my current equipment list:

50 1.4
70-200 f4L IS
300 f4L
1.4X III Extender

I'm considering selling the 70-200L, 300L and 1.4 extender to buy a 70-300L. This would allow coverage of longer focal lengths with less equipment. I don't think I'd miss the constant f4 and I rarely shoot over 300mm. I'd  have some money left over to possibly put towards a UWA, since I am shooting more landscapes.

Appreciate your thoughts.



I get along quite nicely with just 135 on full frame at the longist, you considered getting a really nice wide angle and no 70-300?

I would say go for it to be honest, although if weight is an issue, have you considered the 400mm f/4 DO?

(+1(unless you like the look of the DO(then +10 to that)))

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: future of sigma art line

the 50mm needs an optical redo but would be a big hit

Respectfully disagree, Sigma has the best 50mm f/1.4 for Canon available, and I include Zeiss in that statement. I think a modern 24mm f/1.4 is the obvious opportunity to me.

Just curious, is there anything wrong with the 24mm f/1.4L II (other than cost)?  Or maybe you are specifically talking about such a lens aimed at APS-C users?

My Issue is with cost tbh, im full frame and need to shoot wide angle but fast for video and landscape.

 I really like sigmas new range coming out, but would love to see a 24 1.4, what is anyone else going for?

Guess you better get yourself a Nikon body, and spend time on your knees praying for Nikon to release those lenses. 

What is the point of this post, anyway?  Oh wait, now I remember - you're the guy that Canon screwed over.  I guess it's happening again, with Canon not releasing lenses specifically for you.  Boo hoo.   :'(

I love my 85 1.8, the saving could go towards more glass, maybe its worth consideration?
