Choice of Camera.....5D3 OR 5D2
Mar 2, 2012

Hope you are all fit and well today....

My dilemma........I was all set to purchase the 5D mk 2 next week as a retirement gift to myself when today they have announced the mk3. What do you think I should do?!

I am an experienced amateur photograper but this was to be my first experience of full frame and Canon in general as up to now I have been an Olympus user. I could afford the mk 3 but it does seem to have been pitched at a very high price. However I had already decided the lenses I would get with the mk 2 and that choice may have to be compromised somewhat if I purchased the vastly more expensive mk 3. At the moment you can pick up the mk2 body for around £1399 in the UK which is about $2220 I think. Thats a bit of a bargain I think and a huge price difference to the £3000 they have priced the mk3 at. I am inclined to stick with my original choice of the mk2 but my head has been well and truly turned as if i were to go for the mk 3 i would be future proofing as well.....so before I take the plunge does anybody have any strong advise or has thought of something I probably havnt?!
