If you're packing in photography that would be an incredible waste of talent Sad Fingers crossed you have another camera lined up!

Second that Pete, you are really talented Chris.

Thanks all.....I'll be packing it in for a while as I would like to get back to my walking a bit more....I'll more than likely pick up an old 400D or some such to keep in the day sack while out and about but fined I don't need all the kit that comes with the 5D.

So... keep the crackin' combination of camera/lens - and forget the rest Chris!

(Such talent matey..!!)

Don't get it...

As others have said Chris, don't be hasty. But the kit away for a few weeks, and I bet the urge returns.

Another activity giving photography a break can sometimes enable one to take a step back perhaps with an eventual new interest. Selling what you have will make that more difficult. Putting it away somewhere out of sight and mind would be my option.
Plenty of compacts around that could be thrown in your day sack bearing in mind that photography isnt all about kit.

Incredible photography, just seen your work, too amazing to be giving it up.
A talent such as yours should not be giving up what you clearly can do extremely well.
you are an inspiration to many of us who would love to get close to your work.
put the camera away but don't sell it, you will regret it.

You'll want it back again one day and you'll never get it for that price ever again.
Don't Do It.

Why??? Just stick it in the back of the cupboard and chill out for a bit, I guarantee you'll regret selling it.

It doesn't make any sense at all to sell it, just pack it away for a while, even if it's a couple of years.

Totally agree with all the others. I sold my 7D,70-200L and 17-70 Sigma 18 months ago because I didn't want to carry on serious photography. I bought a Lumix G2 thinking that would do the job. Two months later I realised what a big mistake I made. I couldnt afford to replace the Canon stuff then.
I bought a 600D and 55-250 lens. I wasn't too happy with the 600Ds controls. I now have a 60D which is much better. Ive lost a small fortune.
Don't do it!
