I'm on the fence about spending more on photo gear , but I have 2k stashed away for just such an occasion.
The current rebates are very appealing.
My line up: 5DMK1, 20D, 17-40 L, 50 1.8 MK2, 24-70 2.8 L , 70-200 F4 L, 70-200 F 2.8 IS,
A newer body like the 5DMK2 or the 7D would be nice, but I look at what my 20D is worth now and I start to use language not fit for minors.
I can see a day in the future, when my shiny new body now, will make a nice paper...Show more →
you don't really seem to know what you need or want in terms of new lenses so maybe just keep saving for now
and even though the value of bodies drops, 21MP + almost any lens = more detail captured than 12MP and excellent lens
but maybe just wait for 5D3 and get that or maybe a 5D2 used or new after the price comes down even more
the macro lens would open up new worlds for you, but you seem a bit unsure about it, it's probably the wrong season for that now anyway
