Canon 7D vs 5D mkII

I recently bought a Canon 7D (see other post) and today I spurred for the 5D mkII. Full-frame is so much sweeter and wide, and I can put the 24-70mm f/2.8L USM to proper work. It's too narrow on cropped on the 7D because the APS-C CMOS sensor.

Here's my advice: If you shoot action, get the 7D. It's insanely great value.

However, if you shoot portraits, low light, or mostly landscape, GET THE 5Dmkii! It is AMAZING! :)

San Diego McChicken!

San Diego McDonalds have brought back the McRib to the menu, and we also have two extra "limited time" McChickens.

The new flavors are Jalapeño Cheddar and Cheddar Onion. I tried them both today, and I have to say that the Jalapeño Cheddar was actually spicy and had a kick to it. I'm not a fan of the Cheddar on the Cheddar Onion, but it was something special and unique from the usual boring McChicken.

 If you're in the San Diego area, text ‘SPICY’ to 44144 to receive a coupon for one free Jalapeño Cheddar or Cheddar Onion McChicken with any purchase sent directly to their mobile phone*.
