I have a great idea. Send it to me. I'll make sure it's treated properly. I'll even straighten the lens cap. Be sure to leave the quick mount on, as well.
Too Heavy, eh? Definitely you should send her to someone who deserves her. Like some poor old pensioner who could then trade his old 20D in for a good prime lens.
PS to Too Heavy, eh? Maybe you should check our galleries to see who needs the most help and send her there!
Does it really matter 1D or 5D ? Canon 5D II still does not have the "Art of composition" nor the "This picture is not worth taking it" functions. I hope Canon will do something about it soon.
Don't get any bad ideas about fondling the Playmates now .. I wonder if the other side of the fence is really any greener. Every time I make a mess of my images I tell myself I should change to Canon .. but most probably the fault is with me. Hmm, I certainly don't have a full frame though ..
Tom, you are right, and I already miss the 5D that I sold in January. The problem is that digital cameras did not (as predicted) truly pass into obsolescence or simply stop functioning (none of mine, anyway). They keep being born but do not die off as predicted. In other words, at some point the family starts getting crowded. Plus, the longer they sit, the more one can see their market value falling away--unlike lenses, which seem to be appreciating, although how much of that is due to the changing exchange rate I do not know. --Lannie
The Canon 1Ds Mark II as shot by the Canon 5D Mark II. She's so pretty, and very tough to boot, but what does one do with the Canon 1Ds Mark II now that the Canon 5D II is here? Keep it as a backup, sell it, or just keep shooting it? (As if I really can afford two full-frame Canons. . . . ) --Lannie
You're right... you shouldn't be saddled with this old thing any longer. Email me and I'll send you my address!
Cannon the canon. Get a nikon.
Lannie: Keep her, remember she is a member of the family by now. Tom
Actually, I prefer strapless. Still, a nice image and a beautiful model.
After reading all the comments, I sort of like the direction I took..........buy everything and keep everything.
I really do enjoy taking out my old Kodak (Nikon body) DCS 720X or 760 (both over ten years old) and take great looking pictures with sensors that never required anything larger than 512 meg card ! And yes, I have all the Canons , too.
Best Regards, Mike
Playmate of the Decade: Put it out to pasture, on the auction block--or just shoot it? Comments welcome.
