Thank you hartmanrl that makes me feel good
I too had the same decision and I went with the Canon 5d Mark II and haven't looked back ... it is an awesome machine! The 7d is awesome but lacks the full frame feature! I also bought a Canon 430EX II. Now I just have to learn all the features, tips and tricks for both the camera and speedlite.
Good luck...you won't go wrong with the 5D Mark II.
I love to take pictures of flowers too .... beautiful!
Out standing photos ... I love wildlife and hope to do this too. Good job!
Thank you rpavich ... that is a great idea.
Thank you hartmanr1 ... your going to make my head swell ... LOL
les_stockton thank you for the tip ... I have looked at some videos on youtube and they were good so I need to go back again and look some more!
Thank you Rachel for the comment and the link.
Thank you rpavich and all of you here for the encouragement ... this is an awesome place.
Thank you Danilo ... yes I knew the street curb was there and I also know that my compositions are not the best ... learning. Just trying out the camera ... really awesome piece of equipment.
Thank you Gidgette ... I love flowers and landscape scenes.
The new Canon 5D Mark II with a 24-105 1:4 L IS lens arrived on May 10, 2012. Since then I have been shooting in Auto Focus IS mode mostly to get a feel for the camera. Nice!!!! It is the best camera I have ever had. The pictures are outstanding even though I do not know what I am doing yet! (Notice I said Yet). I purchased David Busch's "Canon Eos 5D Mark II" book and am wading through it to see if I can better use the camera. All in All I am very pleased with it so far ... just need to get out and shoot more pictures and practice my photo composition.
Following are a few photos I have taken. Any critic of the pictures would be appreciated ... just be gentle ... I am a "Newbie".
I like this one ... good color
Thank you Tad... that is great.
