I've been wanting to add a macro to my lens bag. This one might be it, or the 180L.

If you are serious about photography and if you're into pure stills and don't mind the weight, I wholeheartedly suggest a 5D classic (or 5D2 if you need video) + 50mm 1.8/1.4 depending on your budget. This is the system I'll use if I were to turn back time and start again. I'll also get a Yongnuo TTL flash afterwards. From there you can build your lenses then you can upgrade again your body if needed. You will learn a lot with a professional body and a 50mm lens.
My GSD olga. She is no longer with us.Love the B&W of Olga, RL... Great image, her eyes are epic!
Agreed, gorgeous picture of a beautiful dog. Sorry to hear of your loss RLPhoto.
No USA warranty service if purchased grey market or through an un-authorized dealer. If something breaks because of bad manufacturing, It will not be repaired for free. You have to pay.
I buy off Evil bay because my Insurance covers this anyway and I have no issues with that.
Insurance is not a warrantee. I sell insurance for a living and I have yet to see a carrier who will cover a manufacturing defect. Unless you have something uber-special (and likely really expensive) I highly doubt you have the coverage you think you have. I'd suggest you read your policy again, specifically under covered perils (or covered causes of loss), my guess is you have coverage for theft, loss, maybe some coverage for property in transit, but not much else.
That being said if you can confirm it does let me know who is placing it for you as I'd love to get in with this outfit.
What type of insurance do you have?
Is it homeowner's insurance, or specific photo gear insurance?
Hello I am looking to upgrade from a 60d.
I have spoken to a few professional photographers I know and they have both advocated a full frame sensor.
I went to our local shop here in Nashville and I was steered to a 7D which is still cropped. I have looked at the 5Dii and the 5diii,the 6d seems like some odd hybrid, half the af points of 7d but not a 5dii either. I have a budget for 1-2 new L lenses and a body. I will have some great coaching as I step up to a higher performing camera.
I have a toddler who I will need speed for, some animal pictures, nature and outdoors, 40% of shooting will be indoors, most in lower light. I may shoot some birds, but not much, some abstract/ architectural type/ general purpose. I was thinking 24-70 unless the kit lense 24-105 is better at my overall usage.
So having said all of that to I pony up more cash and get the 5d?
Is the 5dii fast enough? Is the 5diii overkill?
Looking to shoot RAW and run aperture or light room for my post.
On a side note I will be using the camera 60% of the time my wife will be learning and relying on the AF features initially.
Thank you all for your help and expertise.
