EOS Bodies / 5D3 hiccup?
« on: March 02, 2013, 03:21:29 PM »
I've had my 5D3 since the summer, and until today I've had no issues.  During playing around with my macro and flash, the top wheel stopped functioning.  I could no longer change any settings, nor could I navigate through any menus.  It began functioning after I pulled the battery grip out for a second time, and appears to be functioning normally.  Anyone else experience a similar error?  Or perhaps it's just one of those strange goofs that seems to happen to electronics occasionally.  Either way I'll probably just take it to Canon for a checkup since it is close to my house, and I'd rather have it addressed while in warranty. 

Cheers.

Lenses / Which lens lineup for 5D3?
« on: June 06, 2012, 01:49:41 PM »
I have a 5D3 on the way, and I'm pondering which lineup I go with, given that the cost is roughly the same.  Any thoughts or suggestions would be welcomed.

24-105L
35L
100L
Tamron 70-300 VC

Or

24-105L
70-200 V2
100 (non-L)
50 1.4

Lenses / Blank slate 5D3 lens lineup help
« on: April 10, 2012, 02:49:52 PM »
I intend to sell my 7D and my EF-S mount lenses and move to a 5D3.  Two lenses I'm pretty sure I want are the 35L and the 100L (for macro purposes.) I will retain my Tamron 70-300 VC.  If I do go with those additions, I'll have about $2,500 left for some additional glass.  I'm considering a few options, and any thoughts anyone might have would be appreciated.  I'm considering the Tokina 16-28 as a replacement for my Tokina 11-16, the 24-104L as a replacement for my 17-55.  Other lenses I'm considering are the 135L, and the 85 1.8/Sigma 1.4.

I don't necessarily need to replicate my crop set-up...I'm trying to balance usability with increased image quality.  I'm a hobbyist shooting mostly travel, family, and general stuff.  If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, I thank you kindly.
