    Default G5 to 10D

    i am now using a G5, but i feel like changing to a 10D.

    Do you guys think its worth the upgrade / investment?

    If you can shoot often enough, then I'll think it'd be worth the $$!

    If you asked this question, IMHO you should stick with your G5 until you HATE shooting with yr G5.

    Of course!!! Why didn't I thought of that? Its always the function thingy.

    So do you actually know what you need that the G5 doesn't give you? Do you really need those extra functions the 10D gives you?

    What kind of functions are you looking to ?
    Are you prepared to carry heavier gears ?
    Spend more money on lenses ?
    Maybe you should try handling a 10D first (if you haven't) before buying it.

    i dun really mind carrying the extra stuff for the camera.

    but one thing i am concern about is the cost of upgrading. i am aware that the price does not includes those 70-300mm lens, and alot of other things... which is why i still have not made my move.

    where can i go to have a trial test of a 10D?

    As always before any equipment move, ask yourself: are you prepared to spend the extra money? What is that the new equipment able to give that the old one cannot?

    Of course, if you just want to satisfy your equipment lust, it's good to know getting the 10D body is just the tip of the investment iceberg.
