Well, I’ve finally made up my mind. Although it was only once I was in the shop and actually held this brute in my hands that the decision was made. In fact, last night, I’d actually ordered a used 7D online from Carmarthen Cameras, but received an email today to say it had been sold. So I popped into Jessops in Edinburgh for a look around after work. I had talked myself into the 7D as a sensible/significantly cheaper option. But, well…

So this is my present to myself for getting a new job. If it serves me as well as my old 350D it replaces, I’ll be happy. However at around 600g heavier, the 5D mkII pretty much puts my pack weight back to 2009 levels.
