Quote:As I recall, you did buy a MF camera, CB. What became of it?

I was given a 1931 Agfa folder , but I gave it away to a collector of old objects! Wink

It wasn't really in full working order.

Quote:'d say depreciation is at least 30%
I see what you mean.
However the prices on ebay when I bought mine about a year ago were very little more than todays.

Quote:hardly any drop in the price of the 5D over the past few months

And CB seems to agree ?????? for the moment

Quote:You don't have to buy the lens.
The camera is about 1200.

You do if you don't currently own Canon equipment or if you want to make the most of the full-frame sensor and only have a kit lens....

I've been reading a review of the new Nikon D3. I had to laugh..the reviewer states; "now photographers will be able to go beyond A3 size prints!....I have news for this reviewer. I've been making "beyond A3 size prints" for years....using a secondhand Nikon FM costing just 150 and older style Nikon lenses.
