So after handling the cameras, talking with Lauren, hearing Amber rave, and having DH encourage me, I decided to go ahead and get the 5d Mark II. It was sort of a gut decision this morning. Crazy, I know! But it seems to be exactly what I want and this way I know that 6 months from now I won't be wanting to upgrade again.
Most importantly, DH convinced me that just wanting quality pictures of my own kids was the best reason to upgrade rather than a reason not to. I also know that right now I can't quite use it to its potential, but I am persistent, if anything, so hopefully it will help me improve.
Here are 2 pics from today SOOC. Not the best technically so forgive that. Just snapshots.
