Okay, that makes sense Bug. While I'll agree of course that it's about the light and tripod, having a 5D / full size CMOS on your side doesn't hurt, especially at lower light levels. What about glass? L?
Alright, the equipment doesn't hurt. The 5d is pretty Damn nice, and the new lens 16-35 2.8L Mrk II is the shit, had the "mark I" before and it was ok but the new one is amazing. The "5D mark II" is comming out, ugghh, anyone want to buy some fly rods?
B&H has them as expected in December. It's not on my short list, but has me seriously considering scrapping the idea of a D10 for a second camera and putting that towards a 5DmII. That 2.8L though, buddy. Those two together and no wonder you consistantly get great color saturation in low light. Nothing against the guy behind the lense, but you're certainly not being held back by equipment. Sweet.
