I'm trying to decide if this upgrade is really a good deal. I bought my 5D in 2006, so it's a relatively old digital camera, but I just upgraded to the markii and hoped to use it as a back-up on shoots. However last summer during a shoot in Chicago the mirror fell out of place and this was apparently an "unofficial" recall from Canon. Then this summer the shutter release button got stuck, apparently Canon says, "these cameras are only good up to 150,000 shots" which isn't quite worth the 4K I spent.
So as a loyal customer they are offering me a deal on an upgrade to a 7D - which would be markedly better at shooting in low light (I do a lot of theatre and dance performances as well as weddings), but I just invested in the markii and the "refurbished" makes me nervous....any thoughts?
