Sorry for your pain, man, but I'm super glad that the price dropped, cause I just purchased a 5D3 that was almost $1000 less than MSRP. I've been holding out for a deal like this for a long time

Yeah 6 months is an eternity ::)

By over pricing their products.  I am aware that I am being charged too much. But I don't care.  I will continue to buy Canon.

As a Canon user you must know you are paying quite a bit for their product.  You may not care, but it is true.

Isn't the idea that something is "overpriced" kind of subjective?

I don't like it and I don't love Canon like I might but the next best option is Nikon and their lens range is crap in comparrison to Canon's. 

is that so...?

care to explain why.. and how can joe mcnally be such a better photographer then you ...with all these crap lenses?

Just goes to show, excellent photographers can get great images with subpar lenses... ;)

I think professionally, camera kit doesn't really devalue all that much.
Say I sell a $3000 camera second hand for $2000.
I've lost $1000, but I'm damn sure that when I'm upgrading a camera it'll make a significant enough difference to my business that that $1000 I've lost is peanuts compared to my profits.
The same idea follows for shutter replacements too.

I went from a rebel xti to a 7d. My 7d paid for itself, extra lenses, flashes, studio gear and my bills in the first year.
The only way I'd make a loss on it is if I paid someone to take it

Sorry, I don't know who Joe Mcnally is and whether he is a better photographer than me. Perhaps he is a god to some and not to others - photography is such a subjective interest isn't it. My point regarding Nikon's lenses is that their range is crap in comparrison to Canon's. Look at all the popular primes and zooms from both parties and compare them. Canon's RANGE is vastly superior - perhaps that's a subjective statement too. I'm not a fanboy and could happily switch if I felt someone else were producing a better product but they aren't. Bodies - maybe but lense range - not.

I looked through some of the legends portraits. I recognized a few of the photos so he would probably be quite big. Some of the stuff was great. It's not his fault he ended up in this thread.


Haha!  Classic.

A camera is an investment??? Perhaps twenty years ago..... Now they are like a computer, they are a rapidly depreciating expendable item. Like a computer, in five years it is obsolete and needs to be replaced.... Resale value zero.

I think I'll go out and invest in a tank of gas and a bag of potato chips.... Wonder what they will be worth in 2023?
The best camera is the one in your hands

Yeah, but twinkies are the best bet, as they ever expire.

Hold onto those twinkies and other Hostess products.  Could be worth big bucks if the company goes bankrupt.  :)  You will have a collectors item one day.
