Returned MKIII
Apr 5, 2012

Would you still buy a 5DMK II if you were starting from scratch?

I recently had a 5DMK III for a couple of days but found that I couldn't justify the £3700 for what I need.

If I am honest I also didn't realise that the body was 150g heavier and I think the grip may be slightly larger, this is an issue for me as its 1620g with lens. Don't get me wrong this is a phonominal camera and if you can make use of the extra features, such as 61 focus points then its a no brainer.

By the way I couldn't believe it looks almost identical to the 7D, part from the LCD

However I am thinking about buying the 5dMKii + 17-40 +50mm f1.4 + 70-200 F4 IS

This comes to less than the 5DMKii and is also lighter, i.e. body = 810g and 17-40 is only 475g, total 1285!

Only slight issue is buying an old model thats almost 3 years old?

What you think?
