5D Mark II an overkill for a hobbyist?
Aug 28, 2010

Just wondering if it is too expensive for a hobbyist like me? I just care for beautiful pictures, not wealthy (can afford the 5D Mark II plus 24-105 with the condition that I don't buy any more Camera gear for another 5 years). Currently have the Rebel XSi and am happy, but not over-awed by its image quality.

If an overkill, can you please suggest a camera that's not an overkill? (please no 7D suggestions because it together with 15-85 costs just AUD1000 less).

Many thanks in advance.
