The 5D MKII has been shipped!

So after 4 weeks of waiting and being patient with the order I finally call up and they are shipping it today. OMG I cant wait for the 5D MKII to get here I'm literally busting to get my hands on it and give it a good thrashing.

I'm not sure if I'll take it out on tour immediately because at the moment I have Camera Armor on my Canon 400D and have had since getting it just over a year ago. The 400D is in pristine condition not a single scratch on the body but more importantly the LCD screen this is pretty amazing after more than a years shooting in the desert. So for this reason I'd hate to cut up my LCD just because I couldn't be patient... but would you leave a $4000 camera at home just because you didn't want to scratch it.

As a side kick the 24-70 f/2.8L had a price jump from 1,699.00 to 1,850.00 which was a bit of a shitter because I ordered it at the original price but still had to pay the increase. NUTS.

So as I finish my 60th tour on Saturday I'll be very much looking forward to unwrapping it early next week and I'll be very sure to let you all know what I think.
