Since you haven't replied to my texts/FB Message (
When are those engagement shoots you have? If I have my gear by the next one, I'll come with and mule again, if you want to try out the 7D if you don't have the 5D by then
1D II N doesn't have anywhere near the noise handling capability for what I intend to shoot, and I'm really trying to move away from paintball photography.
Tom bought a II N and has spent the last month fighting with the guy he bought it from to get it repaired. It has this weird band of over-exposure right through the middle of the image. I feel bad for the guy, but he bought it from eBay and it was a seller that offered no extended warranty/return policy. Sold it "As Is". I'm going to go with a gripped 5D since I'm really pushing to get into more indoor related photography and having a full frame is going to be a real plus for me.
As far as the engagement shoots they are of the actual engagements themselves so having multiple people with me is going to draw a bit too much attention. One of which is going to happen on a helicopter landing pad at Midway and another is more local to me. I appreciate you wanting to help amigo, but in these two situations I can't really see a need for it. I'll keep you posted as more come up. I have a wedding in the spring already on the books, and another pending so you and Tom will be working those if you're up for it.
