If I sell my 300 Apple stocks and add my savings, I can buy 57 5D Mark III cameras at $3500/each :D

depends on the retail. The $3500 is a stretch, I was anticipating high $2k's, but I want one. I shoot on a 7D, 50/50 photo and video, so this is a natural progression. It just means the next couple of jobs ALL go in the savings bank.

Considering how much money I have spent (or "wasted", according to my wife) on lenses over the years, the reported $3500 price is not that significant.

Seems like a lot of you guy/girls are just here for fun. I've read many people say "my wife says no"? You're a grown ass man asking your wife for allowance, what a same.

As for me well..


what's your day job?

I had saved enough for the 1DX but with the 1D4 and 1Ds3 I felt I couldn't justify it. So have bought me a large chunk of glass instead :D

At this point, I feel Nikon D800 is a much better choice. Canon needs to go back to the drawing board.

I may buy a D800 with couple of lenses at this time.

Excellently trolled sir/madam. Headgears off to you.



Lol .. Thanks. Cant afford the III but this made me laugh. +1

I have a 7D, two $1K L lenses, several non-L primes, and still my coffee machine and grinder set up costs more.

I'm getting a 5D3 at some point (and not selling any of the old gear), and like that it is less megapixels than the D800 while having the advantages it has.  I still have to get the wife's permission -- but she usually lets me buy stuff fairly easily.

In the USA our taxes are reduced somewhat by having dependents (i.e. children).  The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is the federal tax office that we pay our hard-earned tax money too.
