So the rebate is 200 off the 2999 msrp? Bah that's lame but whatever I guess it's an ok deal still.

I've been on the fence about buying a 5d2 kit and watching the prices but I just checked tonight and it's up 100 dollars matching my local vendors and last week everyone online had it for 2699. Does this mean something new might show up or stock is dwindling down and so price goes up? It's starting to not seem like a good deal to me anymore.

How do you take that photo? Flash and what camera settings? I really like the photo.

Hey everyone, came across this ad on craigslist tonight and thought is this too good to be true?
I have a very good condition canon 50d with a grip and this guy is open to trading for one according to his ad. Provided its not a scam and the camera works would it be dumb to pass on this trade?

Well thanks for the input. I don't see beach camera having any deals currently. And I'm waiting for a craigslist deal to happen and if it goes as planned I will buy the 5d3 on eBay and see what happens. I don't think it will bother me to have a new 5d3 that used to be a kit so long as the camera is actually new.

I was looking for 5D3's at google shopping and found
It states it's a kit that had the lens removed, so is this a good deal and will I still have a warranty? eBay always makes me somewhat nervous but 400 bucks less is a good deal. So please anyone who has bought a new camera from eBay and maybe even from this store tell me is it safe?

We should be getting leaks in two or three days, as more and more people become aware of the details.  It is true that new lens announcements are kept quiter than announcements for bodies, just not as many leaks.

I want the leaks now! I'm so on the fence about a 5d3 or 5d2! Give me something new canon please!

This quiet period is the sign of a lot of new lenses and bodies !

100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS II
200-400 f/4 L IS II
400 f/5.6 L IS II

7D mark II

yes i'm an optimistic guy 8)

I'd be more than satisfied with that selection!

I think one thing people are forgetting is that for a year after a body is released, its price is very, 50% higher than they sell for right now. Do you really believe the new 7D is going to be worth $17-1800+ for the body when the current one can be had for $1100?

so you prefer not to have any new stuff... i see.   ;D

i have 2000 euro waiting for a new backup FF body.
no way i buy another 5D MK2 and the 5D MK3 is to expensiv for a backup body.

So you too wanted something better than the 5D2 but cheaper than a 5D3?

If a new full frame isn't a very good possibility of being announced then I suppose a 5D2 is in my near future. I was kinda hoping a new EOS body would show and perhaps drop the prices a bit on 5d3 and 5d2.

So it sounds like its a bit of marketing, price and technology. I will sit and wait another 12 years and see what cameras become and how outdated even a 5D3 would be considered. Was the EOS 1V rather expensive for its day? 12 years ago I was young and had a 2 megapixel Olympus that I thought was the best camera ever, I didn't know anything about film.

Ok Im quite confused, I know digital is the new thing and film is kind of almost vintage, but seriously why couldnt they just turn this camera digital?
I get the convenience of digital but this 1V film camera sure seems like one hell of a camera! Maybe I am too young and naive about film vs digital or however you want to call it. So is it really just a convenience factor that determines the price and features of the current SLRs because 1V has 45 point AF and can do 10FPS what the hell mr 5D2 or even 5D3 for that matter! I would trade the 5D3's 61 point AF and 6fps for the 1V's 45 point and 10fps, how cool would that be? Or is it more like how long did it take to get where the 1V is vs how long will it take for digital to catch up? I guess its only been 7 years since the 5Dc was announced I suppose its time to look up how long canon had been making auto-focus film cameras!

Anyone shooting a wedding for the first time should really have some experience behind them first, owning some gear doesn't really qualify you to do a good service to a couple. Most of the advise here is not going to help. Go out there and shoot some events. Learn what works. Even better, shoot with a professional and learn firsthand how to approach things. It's funny how many posts like this end up on various forum sites. What you need to shoot a wedding isn't gear, it's skill and knowing how your gear works in various situations, and even more - what are you capturing - what many call the best day of their life. If you don't know how to do it, should you?

I shot my first wedding with my wife for free, because the couple didn't have a budget for photography. We did a good job considering we were new to weddings, but we were also far out of our depth. You really need to be a second shooter to get some experience.

What better experience than actually shooting a wedding. Sure anyone can grab a camera and take a picture but good photos come from someone thats creative with a camera. My first wedding I shot was for my girlfriends best friend, I really had no clue what to expect the day of the wedding and every single wedding is different. So I took my camera and the lenses I had and gave it my best! Everyone loved the photos that I got and sure it was a small wedding and I felt very under geared but I did it and the photos turned out great in everyones eyes. Thats all that counts as far as I am concerned. Also the bride was almost considering not having a photographer because of money so I offered because who wouldnt want pictures of that day! I would love to tag along with a wedding photographer I think that would be one heck of a trip! Make sure batteries are charged and memory cards arent full!

You could always buy it, use it for a while and sell it if you no longer like it or if it doesnt fit your needs. I buy and sell lenses a lot.
