Decided to bite the bullet and go DSLR!
Less than two weeks ago I became the proud owner of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II with 24mm wide-angle to 105mm medium-telephoto zoom lens.
The camera has a 21.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor; full HD recording in 30fps; ISO 100-3200, expandable to 25600.
I thought I’d go Canon after having spent some 50k on Nikon cameras back in the 70’s; besides, Canon is now a client of mine and I thought I should support the company in my own small, modest way.
NOTE: I did not ask for any discount.
Also, no, you may not borrow it. In the words of a great man whom I shall call “Dr TBC” : “I rather give than lend.”
Not that he has ever given me anything.
