The 50mm 1.2L,  ;D

The 50L is nice but it's one of the few lenses I own that I have to micro-adjust. That will take a little to long for me to get some images  :-\

 My 35L will hopefully go together with the new body like peas & carrots.

Don't know if I need to micro-adjust until I try it out... Probably will, but you never know until you try.

My 50mm f/1.0 - and then I'll turn the ISO up to 25600 and start looking for a black cat in a dark room.

My 16-35II and then the 8-15 Fisheye. I can't wait to see how wide these two really get after being used on a 50D since June and October respectively.

Is everyone really expecting it to be that much different from a MKII?

Might be a few disappointed folks...

Not everyone is upgrading from a 5D2.  If you are upgrading from a xxD, you will probably not be disappointed...no matter what.

ISO? 61pt AF? Yea, you're right... Prob no difference at all :o, prob just chuck it in the bag and forget about it.

So you're not going to test it out? Do a little comparision of your own? Interesting, even when I bought my copies of the mkII I tested them out. Since I have few 5DmkII, 7D's, and 5DmkIII... I will def be looking into the comparisons. My 35L will most likely be the workhorse for testing, followed by either the 100mm Mac or 135.

135 F/2L

This is going to be my first as well. Love this lens on my 5d2, I'm sure with the 5 double-X points it'll be super accurate (if no MF is needed).

The 24-105 that comes with the kit.

I started testing with a 50mm 1.4 and my cat. Shot at F2.2 1/200 12,800 iso no flash.

I picked up a 70-200 2.8 today and used that as well. Still waiting for for my kit w/24-105 from amazon. Wish I had ordered that from my local store too.

I'll probably test it with my 16-35 2.8L III- - (doesn't exist yet -- I have the II), but since the camera is taking so long to arrive . . .

It's going to be my 35L first !!!

I going to take some high ISO shots with my Tamron 18-270mm ! I've got the 50mm f/1.8 on order too, I figure the extra stops will help in low light.

I've ordered it with the 24-70 mk II ... so I'll give that a whirl.

Calumet UK are showing it 'in stock' for the 24-105 ... but not for the body or the other zoom kit?
Title: Re: What's the first lens your going to test your 5DmkIII with?
Post by: e-d0uble on March 20, 2012, 08:00:16 PM
50mm f/1.2l without a doubt.
Title: Re: What's the first lens your going to test your 5DmkIII with?
Post by: swampler on March 20, 2012, 08:38:29 PM
Either the 24-105 f/4L that comes with it or my 70-200 f/2.8L.

Considering I have a 50D now, I don't really care if it's much different from a 5D Mk II.  8)

Post by: prestonpalmer on March 21, 2012, 12:44:43 AM
100mm Macro II!!!  Of all the lenses I own, that seems to be the sharpest.

Post by: Joellll on March 21, 2012, 12:49:50 AM
Probably shoving all my Tokina crop lens to see if they work, then my Takumar 50mm f/1.4.

Then the 100L Mac, as some mentioned.
