| p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · help decide where to spend my money... - which body? |
help! I've got some bonus to spend on me before it disappears into the general household nonsense...
My current toy cupboard has a 1dmk2N, 17-40, 24-70 and 80-200. I also have an M9 and a couple of lenses (which was last years bonus!)
I want to do more horse photography and also carry on building a portfolio of fashion and beauty and possibly weddings, then (if they're any good....) see if I can start to make some money out of it in 12 months or so.
So far, I use the 1D2N for horses and M9 for everything else but i'm not good enough to use the M9 for moving models, so it's all very static. The 2N is also a bit limited for winter horse pics as anything over 800ISO is very difficult and some of the barns are quite dark.
a) keep the 2N and get a 1DS2 for fashion (which doesnt help higher ISO)
b) sell the 2N, get a used 1DS3 and use it for everything
c) sell the 2N, get a used 1D4 which I can use for everything
I think it's got to be a 1D body, I dont really like the handling or focus system in the 5D2, I sold one to part-fund my M9 (which isnt for sale!) B and C both have compromises, but which would you recommend?
and extra points for if you can think of a way to sneak it past the household budget committee... (that's a joke - my beloved will be fine with any of the above)
