Hey thanks for the comments, sorry I forgot to reply it gets lost in the vast amounts of posts on this site, the indoor group shot was just 2 580ex ii's and the outdoor shots were just natural light.
I'd wait and save the cash until then. If the 7D2 is really good, then you won't even have to worry about upgrading to the 5D3 later.
5D2 if you regularly shoot and make large prints at ISO 1600 and above. OR if you have certain Canon lenses which really work best on FF (T/S; the fast wide primes like the 35 f/1.4).
7D for everything else.
No matter how many times people insist...just insist...there's a HUGE difference when they pixel peep at 300%, they cannot pick out 16x24 or 20x30 prints at ISO 100-800.
And $600 would make a big dent for lenses, either buying one you need out right, or getting you that much closer to one that's more expensive.
But...if you must buy a full frame, I can't imagine why anyone would buy a 5DII when the 6D can be had for essentially the same price and you aren't buying four year old technology. In fact, right now, a new 6D with the 24-105 kit lens is actually cheaper than a new 5DII with the same lens. (B&H and Adorama).
I really like the 40/2.8. IQ is very good, and the size makes it very convenient. My normal use for the lens is when I'm using a big white zoom, either the 70-200/2.8L IS II or the 100-400L. I carry that setup with a Blackrapid strap connected to the tripod collar, and the small size of the 40/2.8 means it fits in my pocket. When I need a wider FoV, I unmount the zoom and leave it attached to the Blackrapid strap, holding the camera with the 40/2.8 in my hand. If I wanted to do something similar with a 35L, 24-105L, etc., I'd have to put it in a lens case on a belt strap.
It seems you didn't get my point (it was not about language).+1
My 50'000$ Honda has only 14 cupholders, while the 45'000$ Toyota of my friend has 22 cupholder. I like to talk to the Honda CEO, he needs to do something about that. Why does my Honda have fewer Cupholder than the cheaper Toyota.
I also need to bring my Honda to the dealer for inspection every 20'000km, while the Toyota only needs to go every 25'000km.
Honda will be going down if they continue like this. I will sell it and buy me a Toyota.
Wow... anyone ever stop to think that English may not be the OP's primary language? Who cares if the grammar isn't up to par. Many of the members of this forum make far less sense with their posts and English is often their primary Language. Give the OP a break. If you have something constructive to post then post it... otherwise stop insulting and move on to another thread...
I made a little fun about people comparing cameras like they would compare cars in a Top Trumps card game. Sure, it is fun to compare cameras, but it does not say all that much about the quality of a camera, and even less about the quality of the pictures you can take with it.
I don't think I'm at the wrong place here; I rather think that all the people in here who are playing Top Trumps with camera specs are wrong in here, but this is only my personal opinion.
You could have just said that. To us viewers You appeared to be mocking the OP and came across as extremely rude....
It was his/her first post, and the other poster's comment about learning how to use commas and then yours didn't make for a warm welcome.
Technical wise photography is perhaps the easiest art. It basically just needs ur eyes to work and u gotta be able to press a button on ur camera. Imho most other arts involve some kind of motor skills and/or body control that u dont just have as an average person.
yeaaaah and is there somebody here who never heard "person X shoots great photos cuz the have a great camera" ??...............................
most people know from school singing or any kind of drawing/sculpting isnt so easy
