A self portrait taken with my new (second hand) Canon 5D.
What can I say other than 'Wow'. This is an amazing piece of equipment, and definitely a step up from my four year old Canon 350D. Although the previous owner had it for almost 2 years (1 year and 10 months), it's in mint condition.
One of the 'rules' in photography is to invest in good optics. But now that the marked is packed with people upgrading to Canon 5D MkII, it's the perfect time to get the hand on a used MkI for a reasonable price. In fact, for the price I paid for the 5D, I couldn't even get a new 500D. Sure, the 500D has more mega pixel and full 1080p video. But I'm not interested in video, and the camera is to small for my hands. And that is also my biggest regret on buying the 350D in the first place, but it's also the only one. Always buy a camera that fits your hand.
I've finally ordered a Canon 5D (used). Hopefully it will arrive within a week. Yay! Certainly looking forward to this. I have walked around with a 350D for almost four years now, and though it's a great camera. It's just to small for my hands. Even with a battery grip (which is recommended for this particular reason, it helps).
