EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D3 Auto ISO

at 24mm, i would like it to stay at or above 1/50.  at 200mm, 1/200 would generally be fine for me.

i wish you could set it for a few different focal lengths instead of a single deault.  16, 24, 50, 85, 100, 150 & 200mm would be cool   8)

i've never used this feature until today.  took some shots with it around my house with with a 24-70 & 70-200.  at 24mm the shutter speed on AV was at 1/30.  at 200mm it was at 1/200. 

anyone have experience with this feature and whether it's reliable or not?

16-35 2.8 II.  graduation present for my photojournalism degree.

if youre going to choose between the two, the main thing you want to think about is if you need 2.8.  personally, i do.

i dont always shoot that open, but i have the option to if need be - which is very important to me.  far more important than having IS.

as for the 24-70 range - you just have to decide how often you're going to use a 24-70 lens.  if you generally shoot wide or tight and you have lenses to cover those focal ranges, than a 50mm may be a good choice for medium range shots.

i will say the overall quality of the 24-70 2.8 is pretty impressive and i really enjoy using this lens when the occasion calls for it.

when i shot sports a lot, indoor volleyball was always the most difficult.  nice shots.

f/2 would have helped . . .

I use the Toploader Pro 75 AW with a 1D X with 70-200 f/2.8 mounted and a 1.4x mark iii attached and it fits. The flash also fits nicely in the front and you have some room for a spare battery etc at the top. Not sure if you could fit the two lenses. Any additional lenses I tend to use an extra bag or belt bag depending on how big it is.

the toploaders are awesome.  i have the 70 and i use it all the time.  they're designed to protect a single lens though. 

i've checked out all the companies and models suggested and the retrospective 7 looks like it will be perfect.

"In this unflinching documentary chronicling the genocide in Darfur, former Marine Capt. Brian Steidle is forever transformed by the atrocities he witnesses as a military observer for the African Union."

this is a really good one

i'd say the tse's are aboout the same size as the 24-70 or the 16-35.  decent sized lenses but not nearly as long as a 70-200.

i'm looking for a camera bag that has just enough room to hold a 5d without a grip and two lenses - 17 & 24mm tse's.  one of the lenses would be mounted while the other would not.

shoulder bags and slings are primarily what i'm looking at - not a backpack.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
