EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Amazon vs B&H for purchase?

Buying a 6D today... will be huge upgrade from my 450D, the only question I have is for ease of returns or warranty does it matter?

Where you live may matter.  B&H only collects sales taxes if you live in NY.  Amazon collects for several states.

Macro / Re: Couldn't do this again if I tried

This isn't technically a macro shot, but I think it's in the spirit of macro photography. Sometimes, you just get lucky.

That's pretty.  You still need to be ready when you got lucky!

Here's an idea.  Why not just move closer to the stage?

If you feel comfortable with that, then bring either your 7D or 5D3 with just the 70-200 and start shooting.  You might even be able to use a flash if you have the permission to shoot.

I probably could just sit in the front row and shoot from there, but the problem is that I would be the low perspective.  If I sit somewhere further and higher (stadium seating), there are heads that would block me.

Permission is not a problem. 

thanks

Thought about renting a 300/2.8L IS II for the event?

No, but I did look it up after you mentioned it as I'm sure it would give me better results.  The cost would be about $310.  Hum...  less than buying the extender 1.4 III.  But if I buy the extender 1.4 III, I can use it again and again...

Thanks

>>What's the intended use? 

It is for a preschool / kindergarten event.  Absolute quality is not as important.  But would like to get better than what I had last year with the 7D + 70-200 2.8 IS

Thanks!

Hi,

Which of these combinations would work better for taking photos of a non-professionally lit stage (middle school) from the back of the auditorium?

1) 7D + 70-200mm F/2.8L II
2) 5D III + 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II (would have to enlarge it more in post)
3) 5D III + Extender 1.4 III + 70-200mm F/2.8 IS II

I shot it last year with a 7D and the 70-200mm F2.8 IS  (not II).  The raw shots were usable, but I want to do better. 

Would I get better shots with the 5D III and the 700-200mm F2.8 IS II and just crop/enlarge the photos?

or would the 5D III and the 700-200mm F2.8 IS II + 1.4 Extender III do better?

The 7D gives me the automatic 1.6X enlargement, but the 5D III is more light sensitive.

I thought about buying the Extender 1.4X III but is worried about the one stop less of light.

Thanks!
