Re: Went to the dark side and bought a 5D

For $650, I think that you got a decent deal. However, I would keep an eye on the shutter count as the rated average life span for the 5DC is 100,000 cycles. If anything should happen, the cost of replacement is around $200-250. I'm sure that cost will vary depending on where you live.

Based on the cost, it sounds like you got the two lenses and flash for free. The lenses however will not bring out the best of the 5DC as they are relatively consumer oriented, but they will take decent photos regardless. The primes mentioned earlier will bring out much more with respect to DOF and IQ.

Congratulations on your new setup. I hope that it brings you years of enjoyment.
