It might be one version out of date, but it’s still an amazing camera. The Canon 5D Mark II is still the camera I use day to day. It’s an amazing camera and now for this price, I’m thinking of buying a second one. BH Photo has a fire sale on it for a limited time….Take a peak:

Tilt Shift in on Chicago’s Architectural Boat Tour
After several years of being in and around Chicago, I finally decided to take the renowned Architectural Boat Tour around Chicago. What better way to kick back and enjoy the city this summer after completing the amazing 138-Way World Record. Of course at the same time I figured I’d try out one of Canon’s top of the line Tilt Shift Lenses. This was the Canon TS-E 24mm f/3.5L II Tilt-Shift Lens.
As you can see, the TS lens literally tilts and shifts away from the straight line of site. For an Architectural Photographer, it’s a must have.
Have you ever taken a picture of a big building while standing relatively near it? The photo you end up with is a building that has a very wide base, but the top is narrow and it just gets skinnier the higher it goes. Well, a Tilt-Shift lens will take care of that. Here is a shot of the Chicago Skyline maxing out the Lens in both directions. It’s a good example of what extremes a lens like this can accomplish.
While I’m not going to rush out and purchase one of these lenses, if I’m ever hired for any type of architectural shoot, renting one of these lenses would be well worth while.
