Would you buy a 5D II now?
Aug 11, 2012

I am looking to upgrade my old 20D as I have a good lens (24-70 2.8L) and flash (580ex) for it. My main camera for the last year has been a Leica M9. I was originally planning on selling the 20D, except I find myself using it quite a bit more than I intended (family events, indoor action shots) where the M9 is challenging to use. As I have a newborn, I'm looking for something with some basic video capture as well. I believe my days with the 20d are over with.

I saw that I can get a new 5d mk2 for about ~$2100, which is quite a bit cheaper than the $3300 my local dealer quoted me for the mk3. I don't like the feel of the rebel cameras, so I'm not convinced I want to go that route. The mk2 seems like a fantastic camera; is it worth the extra $1200 to get the mk3 new?

Thanks in advance!
