OK, please please hotukdeals can we have a category for Camera !
Its so annoying searching in electricals with washing machines !
Ok, now I have got that over with :)
This is an awesome full frame camera.
I have one (also a Canon 5DII and nikon D700).
It is only for people who know that they need a camera at this level. I understand for most folk it is not a necessary holiday snapper.
Its difficult to describe the thrill of a 24MP picture which you can zoom down to the pixel level and see it super-sharp!
This is a high precision optical instrument which can produce pictures at low ISOs only rivaled, but in some cases better, then hassleblad, phase one & leaf backs/cameras.
It is also excellent at high ISO, I use mine alot at ISO 1600.
For those photographers who want the ultimate studio or landscape camera at a knock down price, this is it!
Warning: It needs the best glass, so you will want to get zeiss lenses, or some of the more expensive Sony or ex-Minolta lenses second hand. but you will be rewarded.
However, some super-cheap sony or minolta prime lenses, like the 28mm f2.8 or the 50mm f1.4 can produce amazing pics in the right hands!
Again, a niche product, but an amazing value one if you know you want one!
