Will I be happy with a 5d mark 2?
Jun 15, 2012

Okay, so here is my situation. I really want to go to a full frame. I think the 5d mark 3 is awesome but just too overpriced for my liking. I am coming from a 30D that I have had for about six years. I shoot mainly landscapes, wildlife, and I am chasing my 2 year old around and have another on the way. My biggest subject by far is my kid(s). I have a few concerns about the autofocus of the mark 2 as far as the speed and tracking capabilities. I've heard it's an accurate autofocus system just not very fast. I also know I'll lose a few frames per second as well. I'm just concerned I'll get the camera and be disappointed by the performance compared to what I have. I would go for the mark 3 but I also need a new MacBook pro. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
