I bought my current digital camera, a Canon 20D, in 2003. That’s five years ago, or about 3 trillion in camera years.

Every year, I’d watch the trade shows, hoping that my dream camera, a replacement for the Canon 5D, would come out. Every year, a new upgrade of my camera would come out, but still no 5D replacement.

And every year, I’d hold off upgrading my camera because the one I really wanted wasn’t out yet. Even when the autofocus stopped working. Even when the aperture stopped working reliably. Because I knew, if I upgraded, the camera I really wanted would come out the next day.

And it finally has! Yay! The Canon 5D Mark II!

I’ve already pre-ordered it through Amazon. Unfortunately, now I have to wait until at least November to get it. :(
