5D Mk II for a hobby?
Nov 21, 2008

Hello,

I've just sold my old 350D and thinking to get either 50D or 5D II. I take photos for fun, (a lot of) travelling, friends' wedding (which is unpaid) and make personal portfolio out of it.

Do you guys think 5D II is too much of a camera for that purpose? I mean, I am not one of those guys who earn (quick) bucks from photography. Probably I would, but not anytime soon...

If I buy 50D, I can get couple of good lenses, but if I buy 5D II then I'll have fewer lenses. For short period, at least. The 5D II is a bit too expensive for me but I'm sure it will worth the price and lasts for long period to me.

What would you decide if you were in the same position as me?

All the best!
