I just replaced my "5D Mark III" strap with one that says "Canon EOS". It does feel a little less like "look at me with my Mark III!".. :)

I also had a problem like yours.. See here: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=4736.msg96090#msg96090

In my case I think it was solved when I switched from my old 4GB CF card to a new Sandisk Extreme 32GB CF..

I had all my pictures burned to DVD's but recently I put them all back on my 1,5 TB HD. (That's my OS drive right now, though I'll need to get an SSD for OS soon..). I have the folder "Photo" synched with another 1,5 TB drive. That one used to be an external usb drive but I built it into my PC for a faster synching speed through the SATA connection.

Lenses / Re: Revenge of the Primes

24L - 50L - 135L were my choice. Very expensive and took time to get but well worth it.

Or

28mm 1.8 - 50mm 1.4 - 100mm f/2. Much more reasonable setup.

That's what I've got: 28mm 1.8 - 50mm 1.8 - 100mm f/2. All nice lenses, the 100 is great for sports. Although I have to say I never use the 28 anymore since I got the 17-40 a few months ago.

Usually I switch between the 17-40 and the 50. Since I've got the cheapy 1.8 this new rumored 50 sounds very interesting to me!

But to answer your question: if you do a lot of landscape/wide-angle then I wouldn't go for primes. The comfort of being able to zoom beats shallower DOF. ;)

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: 5D MK III Images

Nice shot bakkar. I really like the clean, vibrant look. And yet its not harsh. Mind sharing your processing technique?

Thanks! I used the HSL module in lightroom to boost the saturation and decrease the luminance of the reds.
The greens/yellows in the grass I made lighter and the blue of the sky I made a little darker.

Lightroom HSL has this great option where you can just click and drag with the mouse on the colour you want to edit. But I think what makes the shot nice is the location and the fact that the shot is divided in these coloured areas. 

This shot I edited at the same time, but it doesn't have the same 'quality':

Software & Accessories / Re: GPS, does anyone really use this???
« on: September 18, 2012, 09:29:15 AM »
Can anyone else add to this??

I think GPS is just one of those features that you like for no reason. I'd love to have the location data written into the exif at the moment I take the shot. Especially in areas where maps are not exactly clear, like this one for example: https://maps.google.nl/maps?q=kilpisjarvi&hl=nl&ie=UTF8&ll=69.209282,21.490631&spn=0.104194,0.528374&hnear=Kilpisj%C3%A4rvi&t=h&z=12

But do I have a use for that extra data? No, it's absolutely useless.  ;D
So I don't want to spend €295 on it.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Official Specs
« on: September 17, 2012, 06:16:17 AM »
Well, I've got the 5D mark III but I really don't see the point why this 6D gets built-in WiFi and GPS while the mark III does not.. The argument that it consumes the battery faster is not valid in my opinion. It should be possible to disable these functions in the menu for those that don't want to use them..

I think it's because of the fact the 6D has a plastic top plate. The GPS won't work properly through magnesium alloy so you can't build it into pro body cameras without ruining the durability.

Ok, I can live with that!  :)

I've also got this lens as my "standard" lens. It's on my camera all the time and I really love it.
Some samples:

Clear Cut by sjoukebakker, on Flickr

I bought it for the f/1.8 since I often shoot indoor events like meetings. Now I'm saving up for the 24-70mm f/2.8 since a little flexibility in zooming also comes in handy and for my landscape work the extra few wide mm would be welcome.

Your CF card's writing speed is not high enough.
