    why not? that gives 80mm (FF equiv) focal length, v similar to the 85L on a 5D. IMHO that's perfect for portraits and is within her budget.

    you'll love the 1.2 even better. By then you'll want to sell off all your Nikon gear and keep the canon for that 50/1.2

    I guess many are already waiting to see you, posing with your CANON gears (given that your posing with the NIKON gear already generate record breaking postings)

    thanks all who replied.

    i'll shelve this idea for time being and see if there's a new canon DSLR launching.
    last thing i want is to get a 5D, and 1 week later new one comes out.

    You know what, come to think of it, the camera really does'nt matter *that* much. I guess what matters is to master a camera that you feel a connection with and that you love. To bridge that divide between equipment and mind.

    I still prefer nikon though, it just feels more intuitive to me and the sleek sexy body is just da bomb. I love the way it looks and feels... I love the sounds it makes. I love it's history. I love it's heritage and culture. I love the nikon ads in national geographic since the 1980s...

    When it's in my hand, it just feels right, all the controls are on the outside and within finger reach, so damn well designed man... I could probably use a nikon even if you blindfolded me but then I wouldnt be able to see the viewfinder but thats besides the point.
