5D or not 2B
Jun 25, 2008

I'm sorry to enter into the debate about the new 5D but I am at a decision point and I would welcome your opinions.

I bought a 10D in 2004 and have been extremely satisfied with this camera. I have a PBase site at http://www.pbase.com/ianboulton/root if you wish to see some samples and post comments.

I want to change my camera, and with a limited budget, I am thinking of buying a 5D either new or second hand. My theorie is that as soon as the 5D replacement is announced the existing 5D will drop like a stone in price. I feel that full frame is my next step so a 5D, even if it is a "bit old" will fit the bill. I do not need the latest camera "at all costs" which is why I am thinking about the 5D.
What are your thoughts?
