And there is a camera named 5D Mark II which will make wonderful images for less than $3k new and there is a Sony which makes great images for under $3k. Now don't come back to me with the MFDB look SOOOO fucking better and different, I have own both a MFDB and DSLR and yes there are differences, but in the End the images matters 1000 times more than the tiny difference between both systems.
Sorry had to say it :-P
First off, I never said anything to contradict your statement. I agree, which is (one of the reasons) why I sold my MFDB. I can get the "look" by shooting film and clients pay for rentals if an MFDB is necessary.
No sorry needed, my partner and I have four 5Dmk2s on order. Yes, four. My partner and I have a production company. We have a raft of Sony EX1 and EX3s, and a Red 1. These 5d2s might open up new avenues to us.
Yes, there is something about MFDB that is different. At $5k USD, what the fuck, why not. I looked at the P30+ sitting on the shelf, unused, and thought: why not get rid of this thing, the whole industry is about the crash, and I'm mainly shooting video now, why not free up the capital for something else? At $7k, its no bug deal.
