    ... but $2,800 for 5D2, (with 16gig sandisk card and Lowepro shoulder bag), battery grip, extra battery, and 2 77mm UV filters is FTMFW!

    I'm waiting for my 1DIII to come back from Canon with the focus fix. I'm down to only two cameras without it. I feel so.......so.......naked!

    You sir obviously have never had an STD scare...

    Waiting for HIV results > anything.

    Unfortunately I can speak from experiance, about hhrrmm, L33t, how many times now? probably 4?

    Says my brother in arms

    I think with my dick, I can't help it I love all ladies.

    :hi5:

    Oh yeah, that might beat HIV scare... I dunno... I remember when I was 16 and I banged this chick down the road from me (first time) not only was there a condom failure, I was a little fast on the draw... Nothing like creampie-ing your 15 year old gf.

    Thank god she had bad genes or I was shooting blanks. :noes:


    Regardless, you will like the 5dmii, so far I love it. I have to say the front control wheel on it (how it is placed and grip layed out) is superior to the front wheel on my D700, but over all controls still feel to right handed to me. Get yourself a 85 1.2L. I love mine.

    Std scare worse than pregnancy scare. You can't throw Hiv down the stairs. Lol
