    I bought this camera 8 months ago along with the 14-24mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm all f2.8, 50mm ( f1.4 ) and a 105mm f2.8 macro as I wanted a high res camera for the work that I do which is portraits, landscapes and macro work. The results from this set up are amazing. It cost me a lot of money but am beginning to get that investment back. The camera performs admirably at 1600 ISO when coupled with the 50mm wide open at f1.4 in low light conditions. Happy shooting lads and lasses.
