After a lot of contemplation, consideration, procrastination and a lot of other words ending in '-ation', I have taken the plunge and have invested in a new camera body. My trusty Canon 50D has been travelling for nearly 4-years enduring bumps, bashes, heavy rain, high humidity and freezing temperatures, it is time to upgrade.
The Canon 5D Mark 3 is a full-frame DLSR and so will take some getting used to. I need to read the manual which I am also not so good at doing so it may be a while before I am using it regularly but I think I've made the right decision. My 50D is not redundant and will be my travel spare and very useful when shooting events as I can have 2 lenses attached to 2 bodies for speed of use (I'm very fond of it!).
