I had lent it to a friend who had assured me she would return it before we went on holiday to South Africa.
It didn't arrive in the UK until the day after we left. So, there I was in SA with one body (5D MkII) and 3 lenses - 24-70 f2.8, 70-200 f2.8 IS and Sigma 150-500 OS.
One body is great for landscapes and when you have time to change lenses, etc.
It's not so ideal when you're going whale watching or on safari (I don't want to open up a camera while being driven along with dust flying up around me)
So, there was only one thing for it.
Yes, after I had distracted Helen with her official engagement ring, I bought a Canon 7D.
Why that? Well, it's got very fast AF, good high-ISO capabilities and it's a crop body.
Is it any good? I think so!
Here's some selected photos I took with it...
But my 5D MkII is still great...
