hoping for a 85 f2 IS to be next in line.

i believe they can sell it that low because the camera came as a kit and they are removing the lens and selling each item separately.

The Sigma 50 1.4 is very good on the Canon 5D3 body. Something about the 5D3 focus system that just makes the Sigma work perfectly. I say this because the same Sigma lens on my old 7D had the usual focus shift inconsistency.

I bought my 5D3 back in March and have rolled over my file numbers (9999) twice so i'm well over 20,000. I was switching between the 7D for half the year too.

Can't canon just design a LP-E6 II....same shape, better internals and work with any camera that takes the LP-E6

i still think the 650d has the better af. All cross type spread throughout.

Lenses / Re: Thinking about a 17-40 f4L USM. Thoughts?
« on: November 03, 2012, 10:50:01 AM »
I don't use this lens much but i like it a lot when i need it. My 17-40 took a really nasty drop once. It was in my camera sling bag, i had forgotten to close the bag and for some dumb reason i decided to jump and take a picture, the lens came flying out and smashed into the concrete floor. It was the worse sound ever, the cap flew off, a piece of plastic ring in the front came off but i was able to push it back into the lens. Upon testing the lens, it worked just fine with hardly any signs of damage. It's one tough lens.

Piece Of Excrement.  Who on here would buy a POS?

I always thought it was 'Powershot on Steroid'.


The few things I hope Canon will improve for the next version of 5D Mark III is the menu layout….it’s difficult to skip from one section on the menu to another.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Firmware 1.1.3

im very happy about #3. that back light is a minor annoyance, glad it's gone now.

i find myself shooting more jpeg lately with the 5D3. I did a prom shoot this past weekend and shot RAW + JPEG. I decided to use the JPEG's and honestly i don't think my RAW conversions would have turned out any better/different.

im seeing the exact same thing with mine, when i asked others they didn't seem to know what i was talking may be that to some it's not noticable. the screen keeps flickering, but i found that if i press any button to bring up a screen, the screen no longer flickers anymore. this only happens when you initially change the mode dial.
