Just a couple of playtime pic's with the new 24-70 mk2, that lens and the 70-200 mk2 turn me back to being that zoom-guy instead of that prime-guy...

Love the swing picture. Looks like a fun day  :)

Wow...I just got my 1Dx in May and it meets the criteria to have an issue. I'm not too worried about it just yet.

Custom built rig:

Win 7 64bit
i7-960 running at 4.16Ghz  x4/8HT
Samsung 830 256GB SSD
nVidia 460GTX

CS5 runs just fine no issues... LR4 run like a Dog...  I am out of ideas how to speed up LR4 apart from switching off the HT cores.

How are you running LR4 regarding your libraries? I find that I create a Library for each event or job that I do keeps it pretty speedy. When I first started using LR4 I used to keep everything in one library and keyword like crazy but that started to bog the system down. I took some advice from Scott Kelby and started breaking down my Library by event and it sped things up for me.

Windows Machine
Dell XPS 8300 (Adobe Premier Pro/Adobe After Effects/Gaming box)
Intel i7 3.3GHz chip
16GB 1333Mhz RAM
Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB Video card
2TB 7200 HD

Macintosh Machines
Mac Pro (Mid 2012)
3.33 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon
32GB 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM (Final Cut Pro 7/X, Motion 5, Adobe After Effects)
ATI Radeon 5870 1GB
3x 2TB 7200 for media
512 SSD for OS
4 3TB External FireWire 800 drives for storage
8GB Raid external for backup

17-inch MacBook Pro
2.8 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
8GB 1066 RAM
Nvidia GeForce 9400 256MB
500GB 7200 HD

I have no trouble running Photoshop on either of my machines. I plan on upgrading my 17-inch to one of the new 15-inch MacBook Pros later in the year after the refresh of the line.

I would go with another 5D MkIII or an 1Dx. I use the 5D MkIII and 1Dx and the menus are almost identical and the autofocus is the same. The only thing with shooting with the 1Dx it makes me want another one.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III or 1D IV for sports!
« on: May 23, 2013, 11:07:53 AM »
1D MkIV hands down. I have a 40D, 5DMkIII, and a 1Dx and I find myself using that 1Dx a ton more for sports. I'm definitely going to purchase a 2nd 1Dx towards the end of the year. Don't get me wrong the 5DMkIII is usable but you have to be able to anticipate action really well as the fps is slower than an 1Dx or 1D MkIV.  The autofocus on the 5D MkIII is good as well but the 1Dx just focuses faster.

Lenses / Re: Who do you recommend for Lens Rental?

I've used and in the past and both have been excellent. Glad to know about Aperturent as I get down to Atlanta quite a bit. I'll definitely rent from them next time I need something while I'm in town for a few days.

Lenses / Re: Do you wish your 70-200L were black?
« on: May 23, 2013, 10:45:29 AM »
Nope. I like it as it is because when you pull that lens out people know you mean business! :D

Ah...the lens I would like to get next or most is the 400mm 2.8L and I've been saving up for it for two years. But since they've announced the 200-400mm I've been thinking of that one instead of the 400mm 2.8L. I am going to use the lens for high school/college football. Other lens I want are:

  • 50mm 1.2
  • 85mm 1.2
  • 300mm 2.8
  • 24-70 2.8 II. This lens will be an upgrade for me since I already have the version 1 of this lens.

I've had my 5DMk3 for over a year now and I've only had two problems. One problem was when I was trying to use a Speedlite 580 extII flash with the camera but found out that wasn't so much of a camera problem. I've since got a 600ex and that problem is gone. The other problem I've had is that the ISO button has gotten stuck in the down position. I can still shoot with the camera and it still performs well. I'm going to send it off to CPS to get fixed but other than those two issues the camera has been top notch. I'd say go for it
