All the RAW software has made some huge advances in developing images in the pasr 4 or 5 years. However, the 5D MK II gains maybe 1/2 stop, not 1.5 stops.

There is Sony XEL for example.Sony released the small OLED TV about 3 years ago, high priced, and apparently either did not sell, or the technoloogy wasn't ready. Right now, Samsung is in the drivers seat with huge profits while Sony is borrowing money to develop their products. There is going to be a big fallout coming, Sharp is almost dead, Panasonic and Sony are hurting badly. Its not a good time to be producing TV sets that sell for below cost.
OLED is just not mainstream yet thats why u didnt hear much about it
Thats why we do not see a whole flurry of upgraded high end lenses. The cost to develop and tool a new one is high -really high! The 24-70mmL and the 70-200mmL had to be done, and they sell in large quantities such that as soon as tooling and development is paid off, prices will drop.Actually, Canon likes to sell lenses, not have them priced so high that they do not sell.
If you ever meet some Canon exec, please be sure to tell them that - I wonder if they aren't being a bit too excessive even with the newest "standard" lens prices for their own good.
Actually, Canon likes to sell lenses, not have them priced so high that they do not sell. Thats why they continue to make the non IS version of the 70-200mm L lenses, something for everyone that Nikon cannot match.Why make a slightly better one for 2-3 times the price?
Canon accounting could give you the answer as to why this is an excellent idea :-> ...
Honestly, I don't know what all the gripes about the Mark II's AF being slow are all about.Most of those comments come from those who do not own one.
Some are getting the inexpensive Canon 90ex flash ($150). It will act as a master and control other flashes, so you could get it and a 430 EX II for a low cost beginning outfit.
So, going forward, would it be best to just for now....start with getting one 600EX-RT....working with that, and as things come along with the RT Canon line....build up from there?
Can you attach to the 600EX....by wire...other cheaper flashes....in case you wanted to for some studio shots.....would that be a cheap starting out way to have multiple flashes if needed, and then add Canon radio accessories as they come along?
Again, thanks for the info and suggestions!!
