Canon General / Re: Authorized and unauthorized dealers

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.

Good stuff.  8)

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.

My flash head on my 7D was defective from the factory, It wouldn't pop-up any more.

It was no longer covered because it was a Re-furbished body and canon wouldn't fix it under warranty services. They took it in and I paid my deductible to hill & usher. They took care of the rest and I got my camera back just fine.

I didn't have any fuss, but good service from them.

If you shoot a digital camera, Its possible through this mans research. Its very sad but his legacy lives on in all our cameras.

What type of insurance do you have?

Is it homeowner's insurance, or specific photo gear insurance?

EOS Bodies / Re: Looking for new camera

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.

Thank you

Mark

7D + 17-55 F/2.8

or

5D3 + 24-70 2.8 <---------Your choice of lens.

Both have excellent AF, and I would skip the 5D2 series all together.

When I had my 7D, It was awesome. Its AF was fast, accurate, and a solid hit rate. The only problem is it wasn't FF.

Then I discovered the 5D3...  :o

I would like a Leica styled camera with a FF sensor. AF would be nice if possible.

If canon could do another Canon 7 camera, I'd buy one.

The 24L II is more awesome than the 35L IMO. Its really Wide and Really Fast!

I get usable 12,800 Color and 25,600 B&W's out of my MK3. How much more ISO performance could one really need?!

That kind of performance in a APS-C sensor would be groundbreaking.

Just purchased it. Great price and needed a 2nd body.

Im very glad that I never pay full price for my 5D's. I feel bad about the early adopters.
