It's been a while since my last post, but I've finally taken the plunge and bought a 5DIII along with a 17-40 f4L UWA lens. As for the 7D, I originally wanted to sell it but ended up giving it to my sister since she "seemed" sort of interested in using a DSLR, never mind that she doesn't know aperture from shutter, much less what ISO is supposed to do.
In truth I kind of envy you guys that are Stateside or are in places with good warranties and return policies. Where I live, they won't even let you touch the body in most stores unless you're certain you are gonna buy it, not to mention not being able to test out lenses to see the FOV unless again, you are certain you will buy the lens. Return policy is only for 7 days, so when I read about many of you guys trying out cameras for few weeks, being envious was seriously an understatement.
Anyways, I love the MK3, and it is totally not because I spent a buttload of money buying it. As for the 17-40, maybe because I still haven't gotten the hang of using an UWA lens, the 17-40 so far hasn't been as "Wow" as the 70-200 f4L when I first bought it, but I'm still learning. Anyone with experiences they'd like to share on using a 17-40 on FF would be most welcome
P.S. I forgot my main reason for posting this... which is,
Thanks to everyone for the inputs that swayed me into spending so much(money well spent though XD) for a camera that is truely a beast
