Default Re: Camera gear

5Dc's are only a little more than a 1D MkII... and that isn't even that much. Wait just a few more months when the 5Dc owners need money for Christmas, and you might find a good deal. Or a few more when Uncle Sam wants his dough.

10-22mm... meh. I like the 18mm on my 1.6x crop body (XSi), but as I have a 1.3x crop body now (1D MkII) I can go with a slightly higher powered lens and get the same results. For instance, a 22mm will give me the same 28mm equivalent that the 18mm would. I can deal with a bit of that not being there with the 28mm.

Back to the 10-22mm, though. I personally do not see how anyone really needs that, but... whatever you want.

I think next summer I'll end up getting a 1D MKII I need something that has a higher FPS if I wanna start taking more sports pictures.

I've seen alot of pictures at like 14-16mm that I've really liked so I'm not sure. Probably wont be getting anything new for a few more months though

1D is a heavy, heavy body. It really is. I think my camera weighs about 10lbs or so with my lens on it, and it wears out my shoulder real good after a solid day of shooting. A 40D has a 6fps rating, and is quite decent at 10mp for large prints and cropping. And, it's a few hundred bucks cheaper. Also, if you do end up getting the 10-22mm, it's an EF-S lens that cannot be used on the 1D MkII. Look around a bit and pick your poison carefully since you have time.

Yeah I will for sure. I know my friend has a 50D so I'll probably play with that and see how I like it.

If you plan on shooting sports go for the 1D, even my 40D seems like a POS when I switch to it for a shot. AF system on 1D just can't be beat.
