And, until now, I kind a higher opinion of the folks here. Oh well, whatever. Bye.

Sorry we won'r hear more from you!;)

Aw sorry! Didn't think I was being remotely close to mean or harsh! You don't have to leave, this forum is so much fun!

Well, I guess my point went over your heads. I don't drive a fancy car, either. And I am sure many bought two to sell one on eBay. Understand now?

I think a 1D is still higher end than a 5D. It's like a 10 year old Mercedes S class verses a new KIA I mean that 10 year old Merc ain't too fancy anymore but it sure was he best you could get at one point. Prolly a good decision not to get the 5d3 you can prolly get one for 800 bucks in 10 years.

Must be one heck of a bday party! I bet you would be fine with the 24-70 and 70-200. Maybe rent a second body if you don't have one so you don't need to switch lenses making it way easier to capture shots that happen fast. 2.8 will be shallow enough I would assume just frame it tighter or stand back and use the tele to compress the background.

Well this explains why all the second hand 1D series cameras on eBay all look like hell. Cameras are so multipurpose!

I'm struggling to see the point of this post.   ???

Lol agreed, I was expecting more of comparison versus a short rant. I guess good thing you didn't get a 5d3! Hooray!

He acted and tested like a child. I'm not hostile towards him. I'm just calling it as I see it.

DigitalRev episodes are for entertainment, with some good, practical information shared in many of them. If you're looking for well designed, repeatable tests with detailed analysis...there are plenty of options for that elsewhere.

This is similar to someone watching Top Gear when trying to decide which car to buy. It's not meant to be serious, and if you watch it expecting it to be, you'll likely be disappointed.

Awesome! That's been my way of describing digitalrev to people top gear of cameras. That's why I watch both shows!

EOS M's are flooding my local Craigslist!!!!

Maybe I will get a quote and see how much it will cost. Hate to junk it as it still takes nice pictures.

There's one for sale locally by me for 850$ he must not be ready to let his go yet either as keh.com has them for almost half that.

Eos M white discontinued on B&H website, I kinda wanted that one. I bought the black one.

Sad news!   :'(

The $1.7M price tag.

Oh so it was a bit sarcastic in your post, I assumed it was selling for cheap. That's funny it said 1.7 million! Wish you got the screen shot.

I just posted a few hours ago in the $299 EOS thread that it seemed like a silly purchase; since Canon would likely be replacing it with a dual-pixel AF markII version.

I guess I was spot on with that prediction.


How is paying $300 for a mirrorless with DSLR IQ and a small, fast, and by all accounts, sharp prime silly?  That there would be an improved successor is blatantly obvious. But you're the Man.

In my opinion the EOS-M is not worthy of its price tag due to its poor AF, even at $299.  Opinions vary.  And people can buy in to first generation gear; it's their money - their choice.  They know the risks going in.  And when there's a fire sale, it's pretty telling that the new technology (ie, dual-pixel AF) just made the previous generation obsolete.

Don't be mad. 


Cheaper than my 600$ iPhone, more portable than a 5d that's why I bought one. I can make decent photos with an iPhone and better ones with a 5d but I get nervous walking around with my 5d I won't cry as much if my 300 dollar camera gets stolen. So congrats to the happy people that got a great deal on a great camera!

Ugh I bought a black one cause the whites were backordered! Should I just take the backorder and go for white, did I make a mistake. Hopefully the black will be just as fun and maybe be less conspicuous.

I don't care what body u use, your photo is only as good as your lens.
Go for the lens, whatever body doesn't matter

+1 can't agree more! Went to cars and coffee today with my 5d2 20-35 2.8L attached and a 12 year old canon 1d 4.2mp with 50 1.2L attached only difference I saw was bokeh and distortion from wide angle. Seriously this canon 1d 4.2mp at 12 years old makes just as good a photo as my 5d2. Shoot the af and 8fps on my 12 year old canon will be more than enough for the kids. This old 1d focuses so much better in bright and low light than my 5d2 its insane, disappointing actually. I have some old lenses and cameras but they give me great images compared to what people spend on higher end stuff. If you're not making money from your camera then buy what you want cause you will be happier that way. FF is awesome and crop is too try before you buy then you'll know!!

You got the 70-200 II? Did you sell the 17-55? I was gonna tell you to sell the 17-55, there's other alternatives that are cheaper. I had the 17-55 and I don't miss it. I went full frame and my 24-105 is so similar to the 17-55 on crop as the 24-105 on my 5d. I do appreciate the stronger build of the 24-105 over the 17-55, if the 17-55 was L build I'd keep it but now I don't even have a crop.
