I've nearly got everything sorted for leaving, but the main thing I need to make a decision about is what camera/lenes to buy.
At the moment Ive got a Canon E0S 300D with a Canon EF18-55mm Lens and a Sigma 10-20mm Lens.
I've been wanting to upgrade my camera for about a year now as Id like to take the next step toward making a career out of photography. The 300D is a great camera, dont get me wrong but there are a lot better ones out there now... i got it around 5 years ago and and its only 6.3 megapixel.
One camera that has caught my eye is the Canon 5D Mark II - at £1800 it isnt cheap, which I dont mind when considering what im going to get out of it over the next few years. My only problem with the 5D Mark II is an issue regarding lenses.
I love taking wide angle photos and probably 80-90% of the photos i take are at maximum frame. The sigma wide angle lens I have at the moment works great with the 300D, however it isnt compatible with the 5D - it causes a massive vignette on the photos - so this means if i get the %d - i'll need to get some lenses as well.
Basically what im asking is; With wide angle landscapes in mind, which lens do you think I should get for the 5DII ?
or should i go for a completely different camera so i can still use my current lenses?
The images below show the sort of wide angles Im hoping to achieve with the 5d - do you think it will be possible??:
