At one point, then I decided to stay on the Nikon route when I saw the high ISO performance of the D300. When I'll buy is unknown at the moment.

Looks like I've defected to Canon FF... will post some pics when I get round to it. Preliminary test shots looks very promising. Very smooth high ISO.

wow... what's the damage boss?

It's a 5D huh?? hmm was considering it sometime ago too but the cost of switching system(selling lenses/flash etc) put me off.

 

Do post some samples ! :D

Because I managed to get GST off. It all cost me under $6K:

- 5D body

- EF 24-70mm f/2.8 USM

- 580EX Mk II

 

I wasn't really switching systems, my intention was to go FF (D3 too expensive) & that the above were all I really need for portraits (& maybe landscapes) since my D70 + 70-200mm VR I use more for the tele end. Will only upgrade the trusty old D70 once it konks out or the D3 becomes cheeep cheeep.

 

Haven't got round to doing a proper shoot, just shots to get me used to the Canon system.

When D4 becomes a reality. Second hand D2X getting cheaper & cheaper after D3 was out.
