I got my dream gear 5D Mark II - Dreamstime

Dear friends I am happy to share with all of you that finally I purchased my dream gear canon 5D Mark II. I must admit the quality of the produced images is awesome!!

I started working on photography from around 2004. My first camera was Nikon coolpix4100. I brought that for shooting pictures of my daughter Mansi. Slowly I started loving digital photography. I started to participate in some online photography contest. I come to know limitation of my small gear. I upgraded to SONY DSC-H2 at around 2005. This camera was supporting all manual settings with 12X optical zoom. I learned a lot with this camera. I changed my gear only after realizing their limitations for my work. I worked with canon 400D for around 4-5 years.

The major decision for switching to full frame body was requirement of high ISO performance, it's suitability to my favorite photography areas like portrait & landscape, HD video shooting capabilities & the to have quality photographs of my new born son on 15th March 2011

Currently I have three EF lenses for this camera.

1. Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II

2. Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro

3. Canon EF 70-200mm f/4.0L IS USM

I was slightly confused between canon 24-105 & canon 24-70. So I have kept this focal length lens purchase pending. Also there is rumor of up gradation of 24-70. I will sold out my old gear 400D & EF-S lenses eventually.

I know there is another strong rumor of up gradation of 5D Mark II. But as per the discussed reasons I considered better to go for than waiting.

My only advice to serious amateur photographers will be to save for quality lenses & gear. It's quiet tempting to go for cheap lenses but at last you result to experience the same which I am saying.

I hope I will have very nice time with this new gear & lot more interesting images to share with all of you :)

Congratulations. I bought mine two years ago with limited resources and I am still very much in love with it. It is just a great camera. I specifically like to use the Canon 16-35 mm f 2.8 wide angle lens on it. Happy shooting.

Kind regards

cool - in long term I'm also preparing to go for the full format from Canon - that's why I'm not buying any lenses which I can't use then - I think you shouldn't worry regarding the upgrade - if we would always wait for that new upgrade we probably would still be using analog ;)
I would look at the Canon 16-35 or 17-40 L's which would match wonderful to your existing gear....

Im currently shooting with 40D. But looking forward to go full-frame as well upgrading to 5Dmk3 once it's out. I know the 5dmk2 is amazing camera, but i decided to wait a little and go for a newer technology (rumors say the new top line canon's cameras may have amazing high-iso quality).

Hi, I have a 24-105 L and its a great lens, with the 5D the lens suits perfectly for almost all type of shooting, but you can have both worlds using the 24-70 and the 70-200, I just think its better to have a longer range to carry when you dont want to carry all that weight.
You can check a comparison using the 5D with both lenses at DxoMark
DxO Mark
Of course, the 24-70 is 2.8 and the 24-105 is 4, but its really up to what you need for your photography

Drooling in jealousy here! Congrats!
I love you husks--it's amazing how much drama the color of nature (combined with the talent of the artist) in creating such art from even the simplest twig. Looking forward to additions such as these in your pf...
