Thank you for your reply.
From better money spent bstand point...
I was leaning more to getting 5d3 as it supports high ISO in addition to a lot better AF, which means maybe you don't need very expensive L lenses for low apperture value? So, the better performance from one investmennt in a good body like 5D3 applies to all lenses you have andwill have, and therefore, better investment?
I maybe thinking this b/c my body is a 30D, and not fully understanding the effectiveness of having better more lenses vs a improved body performance. Any advise will be highly appreciated.
I think putting most of the money in the camera body is not a good idea long term. If you get the 5D3, then you'll have a 24-105 and a 50 f/1.4 for 4300 USD. Perhaps you should wait and see what the 5D2 goes down to before making a decision.
Right now, the 5D2 and the 70-200 II goes for about 4500 USD. A 5D2, 24-105L and the 24 L II costs about 4700 USD. A 5D2, 24-105 and the 70-200 would be 5300. What would you rather have, a 5D3 with 2 lenses (50 and 24-105) or a 5D2 with more lenses for slightly more money? Is the 5D3 worth 1100 USD more to you?
