So I know I've touched on this before. You can make beautiful pictures with older cameras, say a D80 or a Canon Rebel. With that said I can honestly say it's a hell of a lot easier making beautiful pictures with a full frame your friends can't afford it type camera.
I just got the 5d MKII. Yes i know it's old considering that the MK III is out, but i'm smitten.
I don't have many lenses for it yet but they will be coming. I'm mostly shooting with a 28-135 and a 50mm 1.8. I'm getting by and making some great images.
Can't wait to start sharing more on this blog.
