I know what kind of forum this is, but I was hoping to turn on some lights.  Plus, technique is a technical term, duh!  :D

It’s a fact that you attract more attention by pointing out the negative, whether they really exist or not. But I still don't understand people's obsession with gear over technique.  I am certain most of the world's prized photographers could have been achieved with lower grade camera than 5d2, 5d3, d700 or d800, etc...

I bought one of the first's Nikon 1DX (equivalent to D3) when it was the hottest new digital DSLR on earth thinking that's what I needed because I loved photography so much, but it wasn't until I began to focus on technique and less on gear that my stuff started to improve.  I switched to Canon since then, not because of quality, by because they have and continue to have (in my opinion) a more user friendly menu system and camera controls.

FYI, I just received my 5D3 and like most of you, love my gear, but 80% of my focus is still on technique, plus my choice is easy since my glass is Canon.

I have yet to hear one world renowned photographer tout one brand over another, BECAUSE THEY GET IT!

I had a similar dilemma, but since the 24-70 version 2 is still not out, I picked up a like new version one from craig's list for $1,100.  Worst case scenario:  if I don't like it and want to buy version 2, I could easily sell it for close to what I bought it for and buy the new one. 

On a side note, I am not a professional photographer and can't justify my obsession with high-end gear.  I just tell myself that I am worth it - and that is why UPS is bringing me my 5D3 tomorrow (like i really need it)

Just bought the last 5D3 body at Kenmore Camera in Washington and cancelled my order at B&H.
