After literally months of hearing non-stop about the pros and cons of this camera vs. that camera, ISO whatchamacall-its, full frame vs. cropped sensor and other blah de blah, Aksel finally went and bought a new one - a 5D Mark ll..... with lenses.
The man in the shop subtly won him over by mentioning that this was the one that "professionals" buy.
And now I am a camera widow. Left alone while he learns all the new possibilities that his new baby offers him.
The up side is that Aksel takes really good pictures. And now (so I am told) with this new desirable they are going to be even better. I am particularly interested in the new portrait lens that promises to smooth out the wrinkles and take off 5 lbs and 10 years ( I'm sure that's what he said, I mean at those prices it must perform some magic, mustn't it?).
I also inherit his "old" camera, which I need to learn how to use, but this is much more likely now that I am allowed to get my hands on it.
