Side note: I am looking to purchase a decent camera. My choice borders on two brands Canon & Nikon. For Canon, it is the Canon EOS 5D (with 18-105mm lens) and for Nikon, it is the D7100 (18-105mm). I am wondering which is the better buy. It will be used mostly for leisure, family travels etc. For any of you who have any of these two brands, I would be happy if you can comment on the quality and durability of the product. I notice some of you guys use very good quality cameras to take photos of your outfits and I must say it helps bring out the best of your outfits more so the attention to details is next to none. Any user of the 5D or D7100 on here?? Please you can PM if it is not conducive to leave your views on here in relation to this request. Thanks !
I own 2 5D's.
Can you comment on the performance?!
Arn gets paid to take pictures so i think you'll do okay.
@mcobinad I would recommend the Canon 5D series. You are getting a full-frame sensor and a lot of power behind your images, especially if you shoot RAW. If you do not intend on shooting RAW, I would say the D7100 is a firm option, the price is a much easier to swallow too.
Overall I would still go the Canon route, I've shot with every 5D model and I have always liked what I got out of it.
EDIT: Read http://www.dpreview.com/, this site has been a god-send to me when I've looked into upgrading dSLRs.

I am afraid that the same problem strikes again, there is far too much waist suppression in these suits.
@macobinad, to follow up on the other posters comments, your clothing is worn way too tight, and it isn't achieving the effect you seem to perceive it does. In fact you look no better than a fat man spilling out of something that is too small.
There are plenty of posters with great bodies that don't seek to accentuate that fact by either buying things that are to small or having their tailor adjust so that they look like they're wearing corsets. Rather they buy or tailor to flatter, good fit in the shoulders, room in the chest, and some shape at the waist. When you want to show off the dividends of working out wear jeans and a tshirt.
Sorry to be harsh, tough love. You need to reevaluate. Hope this is taken in that spirit.
Advice taken in good faith.
Good morning and happy monday.
Just saw this on my monitor. Your jacket is buttoned when seated, so that's going to look off no matter what, but that standing picture mang....
To be fair I can't really say anything constructive other than what has already be said, mcobinad. Your suits need a lot more drape and much less structure.
