You Get What You Pay For

I'm a picky person and I'll admit that. If I buy something, I want it to work perfectly, to look perfect, to be perfect. If I'm paying for something, why shouldn't I be like that? Yes, it's just stuff but still, this was how I felt when I paid so much for my Mark II and watched all my money go bye bye out of my bank account. I wanted this camera to be WONDERFUL. If it wasn't, I was planning on taking it back.

Well, I don't need to take it back, that's for sure. Haha. It has blown my expectations out of the water. I had no idea the colors were so beautiful, that the high ISO barely had any grain, that the focus was amazing, and that I could shoot at 1/40th or 1/50th of a second and still have a sharp photo. So different from my Rebel. I'm very pleased and I'm just itching to have a photoshoot! You may not be able to tell the difference in my photos but there's definitely a difference. Enjoy!
