A very nice 2nd body to a 5D3.
True, or a great complementary body to a 6D, filling in the functionality gaps for high FPS, AF tracking and ruggedness at close to the price of a single 5D mark III body.

A very nice 2nd body to a 5D3.
I do like the Canon 12mm tube, the smaller tubes are useful for shorter focal length lenses, and only Canon makes a 12 mm, for more extension, I see no difference between a good set of Kenko Auto extension tubes, and the Canon ones. The Kenko set also allows more combinations of extension for various magnifications.
I use eos remote on galaxy note 3 to shoot landscapes, fireworks, family portraits, and difficult-angle shots with my 6d. It drops the connection sometimes, but it usually picks right back up also. I have yet to have one bit of camera equipment, computer, software, phone - any bit of tech that does everything it's supposed to do all the time or is otherwise flawless. While I find the 6d wifi and canon software adequate for my needs, I would still buy a 7d II, depending on the price, whether it has wifi or not - I'd just rather it did...
I currently don't do any professional portrait shoots but when I move out I am considering giving it a try to help my income. The screen and calibrator will be important because I know for a fact my prints don't match what I see on my screen all the time (my screen isn't even an IPS screen). I think if I do manage to get the money together to buy the 85 1.8, I would consider upgrading it eventually to the 135mm f2L.
Well damn, I wasn't really planning on upgrading my cold shoes, but those RRS shoes look quite nice.
Finally, but too late for me, I'm now using the combo 600 EX-RT and ST-E3-RT. I really like this system.
All I can say is that I'm in awe of some people here. I get involved in print judging, and (annoyingly) most people don't say what type of camera/lens combo was used. And, obviously, there's no EXIF data to review. I'll admit it, I'm just not capable of telling what type of camera or brand was used. But some people here are so confident that there is a night and day difference. I'm now worried that I must be missing something. Some even suggest that my eyesight must be defective if you can't see it (ok, my eyesight is defective and I wear glasses...but I see fine with my glasses on).
Help me! When I look at a print, what should I be looking for so that I can determine with high level of consistency and certainty if it was taken with a P&S, M43, crop camera, FF, medium format or large format camera? If it helps, most prints I see are approx 8x12. I'd love to get this right so that I don't inadvertently promote an image taken with a crop camera over a FF camera.

An array of flash accessories too embarrassing to use.
Oh it hurts the money I've wasted!
Local camera shops here in Los Angeles were the same story as B&H, KEH, Adorama, etc.: they offered around $650 for something they'd clearly flip for $1100-1300, so that's out.
I've opted to give Fred Miranda a try. We'll see how it goes.
My only hangup was the call to describe my lens as a 9 or 9+. I believe it to be a perfectly clean lens other than scuffing on the hood, so I called it a 9+ but was sure to flag the hood scuffing. We'll see how I do!
