Thread: Dilemma - which will you choose?

  1. #1

    Default Dilemma - which will you choose?

    Assume you have budgeted $6k to spend on yourself this Christmas for your photography, you have a choice to get the Canon 5D (and you are already very happy with the current 20D) or 2 super primes lens (which are already covered by the zoom lens that you already have) which will you choose? Just a superficial situation so don't say use the money for other etc.etc.etc...
    always the Light, .... always.

    If you ask me, spend your money in books/workshop/training (eg, http://www.vtc.com) and travel. Upgrading without knowing your bottleneck is fruitless.

    $6k can't get you 2 super primes. Even a 300 f2.8L IS will set you back by ~$8k already
