So I go into a local camera shop to hold the 5D as I am thinking of switching over. The prices are going down on these puppies and I figure before buying one, I want to see if it is as comfortable to hold as the Nikons are. Not soon after gripping it, I went . People paid $3k for this? Now I know what Canonites have been complaining about. I've seen the pictures taken with this camera in the right hands so I guess the plasticky feel is something worth looking over? Nah. No way. Paying below $2k for a plastic camera is reasonable. But above that, the least you should have is weather sealing. I want a full frame so I only have two choices at this point: 1. Wait for the Canon 6D 2. Sell my current Nikons and put it towards a Nikon D3 Cause no matter how much the prices drop on the 5D, it will still feel cheap.
