Keep 5dII & get 70-300L or sell 5dII & get new 5d3?? Help!
« on: March 01, 2012, 09:35:10 PM »
I really want this lens! I have 28-135IS, 50/1.8, 35L, 17-40L, and 70-300 IS. I could sell 70-300 IS and use money I had put back for new body for 70-300L.

The new body would be nice, too, but I think the lens will better serve me. the only thing that gets me is that the 5dII I currently own will steadily lose value over next few months. That's just technology though, i guess.......

Oh, and I do a lot of street photos and landscapes. Give me your opinion, please! My 5dII is immaculate, with low shutter count. I don't think new 5d3 will improve too much in IQ
5d2; 17-40L; 35L; 50/1.8 Mk. 1; 70-300 IS; 100mm/2.8

Always buy good glass first. Atleast thats how I approach things.

I think the non-L to L upgrade would be muuuuch larger than the 2 to 3. I've been debating new glass given the price point being about 700 dollars higher than I was hoping for the Mk. III, but in the end upgrading from a 50D to the 5D will win.
5DIII 8-200mm minus 35mm in there.
