So the town I live in is a Beach town, that means in the winter I am one of the only residents on the island lol That being said there is little to no light pollution so the night skies around here are amazing!

I'm gonna get a D800. Selling my D3 and D7000 to get one of those.
Never use the 9fps on my D3 so why not get a D800. :D

You're gonna jump ship?
And just beware, the autofocus on the mk II is horrible.

I would highly recommend a D700 instead. unless you're planning on video of course, then the 5D is the way to go.

I have been looking for a D700 for months but the ones I have found have an enormous amount of actuations :( I rented the d600 and didn't like it at all and the d800 is a bit overkill for me. I also like the fact that the 5d mk ii is brand new with warranty. Also all the local photographers shoot canon so I have used quite a few mk ii's and didn't see any issues with the autofocus.

My D7000 was more accurate and faster when it had a broken autofocus engine. It is a known thing with the MKII. Other than that it's still a kickass camera, and unless you shoot a lot of street shooting or sports you won't really notice it. Gonna get some L glass for it or still do third party?

I'd get an 85mm f/1.4 instead, the 50mm F/1.2 is incredibly soft and expensive. And remember you got a full frame camera, so 50's aren't 75's anymore. 50mm is great for everything, but 85's are better for portraits.
And seems like the 5D MK.II is right up your alley. ;)

Unfortunately Canon only makes an 85 1.2 and an 85 1.8, They dont make a 1.4 :(

Then get a Zeiss lens. ;)
They're insane for portraits. Great contrasts and insane build quality, but no auto focus.
I'm gonna get an 85 f/1.4 from Zeiss one day.

I got a question about filters.

Polarizer vs ND for landscapes/cityscapes, which one is te better choice as a first filter.
And screw on vs the ones you slot on.

Thank you!

As for Nd or Polarizers, to be honest they are used for two different purposes so having both is great! Nd Filters make for a longer exposure, as in 30 second exposures during the Day and Polarizers can saturate the image more by eliminating unwanted reflections

I prefer threaded filters but I know alot of people use the cokin 4x4's as well

My recommendation would be to get a decent Circular polarizer from Hoya!

So tonight I invested in some Cokin PGraduated ND filters :) I bought the holder, a 2 stop grad and a 3 stop grad. I have a 9 stop light craft ND filter and a hoya Circular polarizer so I should be pretty good on filters now.

Leica has no features whatsoever. I'd much rather get a Fuji X Pro 1.
If you're gonna get a leica, get an M3. Why anyone would buy a digital Leica is beyond me. Ruins the whole aesthetic about the brand.

If you want performance a DSLR from Canon or Nikon is a lot better. leica optics aren't that much better.

Stig do you own the Samyang 14 2.8? My budget for a new camera has changed a bit so I am now looking at a D700, Nikkor 50 1.4D and am looking now for a good wide angle.
