What I got in my mind to figuring this was get 5D2 with Sigma 35 F1.4 and 24-105 F4L. That Sigma and 24-105 fills my needs for now pretty much all the way because most of shooting what I do now is just family/portraits and some snowy landscapes. And later on add 16-35L or 17-40L and 70-200L II, and change 25-105 to 24-70L Mk1.
Help me to make right decision, I've been shooting with 7D now +2 years and been looking for moving to FF. Basically what my gear includes now is 7D with 17-55 F2.8 and basic kit 15-135 that is not used like at all.. and now shooting with 7D these couple years I've noticed that my pictures are almost 50% portraits and 50% landscapes, cityscapes etc.
What should I do, been looking for to get 5D Mark II?
If you are wildlife photographer and you don't want distract animals, obviously lens camo is way to go to hide much as possible that big white in middle of forest/field. Otherwise I don't see point using those.
I was just surfing around petapixel and ended up checking this out: http://goo.gl/wbxIc Truly amazing shots, once in a life time you are able to get such as pictures around that huge city!.. Truly amazing..
Only thing why I would like to get it used or as grey is the price... local dealer's price is 2359€ = $3118 and from US you get brand new one for $2099 (1588€) so that's kind of high price for that particular lens.
I would like to have advices to buying used lenses. I've been checking used lenses from internet now for while, mainly from CL. And what I came up with was http://goo.gl/4WxDF this one. That would be a lovely to get but as knowing internet... scams... that is one reason what have kept me away buying used stuff from internet.
Anyone else found that F2.8 pictures are way too soft almost unusable, pump it up to 3.2 and this is BEAST with it so sharp.. and then from 3.5 to 7.1 a bit jumping up and down and then again at F8 it amazingly sharp.
