Are you sure you need to go FF? If you really need to, can consider 5D1.

Money hard to make in this economy. Save up for rainy day. Buy a cheap camera and you still can shoot like a pro. Buy a FF camera don't guarantee good pics. In the end, it is you that matters.

If you are currently making a living being a photographer, ya, go ahead, invest.

If you don't mind 2nd hand, can consider a used 5D MK I. About half the price of a new 5DII. Still a fantastic camera despite its age. :thumbsup:

Anyway, just to warn you, the full frame poison does not just end with purchasing the body...soon you will be hankering after fast L primes or zooms...believe me....it never ends. :sweatsm:

well, just cut your expenditure in other areas. or find a job that pays relatively well? :)

most importantly, always live below (not within) your means. as one CS-er as pointed out, you don't need a 5dm2 to take amazing pictures.

If you can't afford it, don't buy it. It's that simple.

Quick cash? Sell all your equipment listed and you might just have enough cash to buy a 5DmkII body. Quick and effortless!
