Just got my 1st of 2. This one I ordered on the first day, mid day, that it was available and it is amazing. The focus is spot on for every shot and it is tack sharp. Really really happy with it. Hope the 2nd copy is just as good as this one.

Just wondering, but do 90% of the people who ordered the Sigma need the lens straight away for some big assignment? ??? Because it does look like the 90% of people are are just a bit too impatient.  ::)

I want my lens now!!! I want it i want it want it!

Video & Movie / Re: Trailer for film festival - Mark III ML

Woah. That looks intense. When will it be available to watch? I like the concept. Very well done.

I think you did very well for your first. I really like the aerial shots you got. I think the aerial really helped keep in interesting so it wasn't just more of the same shot. I think it would have cool to have tighter shots of the bow on the strings, or tighter shots of his fingers on the strings, and maybe a couple more super wide slider shots of him. But it turned out very well for what it is. Good Job

It's a pretty cute video. I like the color grading you did on it and you fit a nice edit. Though I'm not a huge fan of the artificial light leaks, but that's just personal preference. I also feel like it was just a little too long for the content. But it's a very pleasing looking video and it was edited well to the song.

Yeah!!!!!!

Just got the shipment notice from B&H for mine.  It was ordered on 4/11 at about 9:00 am Eastern time, and is JUST on the way.

 :)

Lucky!!! Order my first one 4/11 around 10:00 am Pacific Time. Hopefully we will get a shipment notice from B&H soon! Ordered the second one from Adorama on 4/19. Not really holding my breath for that one yet.

Lenses / Re: Canon 70-200 USM IS L (not Mark II)

The Mark 1 is a great lens. I personally would go for the new Tamron 70-200. It's gotten some great reviews and the image quality is much closer to the MKII Canon.

The 5D3  can shoot up to 30 Minutes at a time with the files split into 4GB files (these files playback continuously when linked together in editing). When you get to the end of a card the video stops. When you hit record again it will start recording on the next card. There are no heat issues with the sensor and recording more than 30 minutes unless you are in blistering hot sun (which you still can expect to not have issues). Magic Lantern has a work-around that will start recording again automatically after reaching the 30 Minute mark, but you do lose about a second or so of coverage.

I shoot a lot with my 5D3, always with magic lantern, and often longer than 30 Minutes. So this is from experience =)

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: Is the C500 / C300 worth it anymore?

Keep in mind that there's a lot more to camera performance than just resolution and specs.
The C300 is still one of the most requested and used cameras out there right now. I haven't used the C500 so I can't speak to that one specifically, but I'll keep using my lowly C100 over a 4K BM or GH4. The C series gives the image I want without all the hassles.

I agree actually. The c100/300 has a beautiful image at 1080. Most people don't need 4K or raw anyway. And for any "reasonable" distance you can't tell 1080 from 4k on the TV.

Has anyone heard any updates ? It seems too quiet for a new release ;-)

Agreed, where are all the "I just received my new 50mm ART" comments. There are couple. Wonder when they will start to really ship.

I would definitely recommend the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 VS or the Canon 24-70 f/2.8L v2

The IS (or VS) on the Tamron is a great feature for video and stills when your shooting at the long end. I've never had an issue with IS sound in-camera, but that may be also because I don't often use the audio form the camera.

The price difference alone might make the Tamron more worth it, and it is a great lens. But the Canon is unbeatable in sharpness and lack of distortion.

The compression on this video was pretty horrible. Standard 5D compressed footage is pretty soft, but I know that the 5D Raw would not be that soft looking if processed properly. Nonetheless, the Note3 is awesome camera phone video.

I agree. Keep all your canon glass as it will work on pretty much everything. For camera, it really depends on your needs, I wouldn't count on canon releasing anything jaw dropping anytime soon. Blackmagic is a good option, but don't forget about KineMINI!
