My canon 5d2 died today. Sad. Too much rain during a shoot. Reminds me that I have to figure out weather protection for cameras. Still it has served loyally. Hopefully a simple repair.
But means the urgency to get a backup camera has never been bigger. So onto figuring what I can buy given product cycles:
NEX-9 and NEX-7n. The NEX-7 is prrtty incredible. Buy rumor is the NEX-7n gets announce in the next month or so. Faster 24 megapixel and an amazing 3MP viewfinder in store. The NEX-9 is supposed to be a $3k mirrorless full frame. How cool is that. Like the RX-1 but with changeable lenses!
