Software & Accessories / Re: Sub $1000 27" monitor for photo editing

The dell U3011. I have a pair of them @ 850$ on a Newegg sale 6 months ago. You should see them drop again by the end of this year but a fantastically accurate monitor and calibrates like a champ.

$850 for a pair? Wow! Time to look at newegg!

Will these cards work with my 1D mark iii? I think my cards are the 60mb/s sandisks

I today got State Farm to give me 20k gear insurance and liability for my shoots for 335 a year. Allstate quoted me 558 for less coverage. I'm happy with State Farm.

I bought a Auria 27" 2560x1440 from micro center, I liked it so much I bought 2. Paid 399$ each. I used the spyderpro on them but was very unpleasant with the results. Bought color munki and they now match each other. It's a good monitor from Korea, I think it may have the same insides as the the apple displays. It's a great monitor for a great price.

Great photo - beautiful (and chain-link-fence crazy) bokeh!

Thank you! It was one of my first photos taken with my new 135L. The shot I planned the bokeh was all the lens' doing!

Love shooting Owls - here's a few of my favourites.  Most of these have been shot with Canon 5d II, Canon 1D IV or Canon 5D III and either Canon 100-400L or Sigma 120-300 f2.8 (and 2x teleconverter).

I think owls are super cool thanks for starting this thread! Could anyone tell me where and how to find owls, I rarely see them but I'm sure that's what the owl wants.

Why are there bottles of dos Equis in the exhaust pipe? Don't warm the amber beer please  :(

APS H format serves not useful purpose in digital anymore. Sensors are so good now, a C size one will do just fine.

But I love my 1D mark iii, don't make me get rid of it!

Can someone (I am thinking of you, jrista) explain why no low-pass filter is better than a non anti-aliasing one (except to Nikon, who can probably save some money).
Thanks

Anyone bueller... bueller. Back on topic lol?

Lenses / Re: 70-200 f2.8ii or i

You will not go wrong with either one. For portraits, unless you are enlarging the prints to huge dimensions, you probably will not see much of a difference. For peace of mind, if the money difference is not a major factor, get the MkII. It will last you for decades, well beyond your current body.

+1 this is so very true, I have the 70-200 2.8 usm so I guess I don't know what to call it since it's not the mark I but I love my 70-200 so much I couldn't imagine how much better the mark II is but it's your money and bday. Like the post I quoted stated you can't go wrong with the piece of mind having the best! It's certainly a chunk of change but well spent for sure.

I totally agree that the 7D2 will be a great action photography camera.  I wonder how the ISO performance will be vs. the 1D4.

This is what I am wondering too. I keep waiting for the 7d2 as a possible replacement for my 1d3 but I'm still looking at the 1d4 as well.
