Give yourself a treat and buy!
The more you procrastinate you are only torturing yourself in the mind because you will keep thinking about it until you really bought one. Just like many others for the cameras (Canon FF or not) we like, me included :)

Agree on ur point 6....price of camera body keep on dropping like nobody's business. :thumbsd: That is one thing holding me back from getting it now. And truly speaking its more of a want than a need right now...

True...I keep thinking of it lol. But luckily not to the point where I can't sleep every night and tossing and turning till I buy the cam. :sweatsm:
