EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 7D to 5D Mk III - Pull the trigger?

I also moved from the 7d to the 5d mkiii and couldn't be happier.  I kept the 7d at first to have two bodies.  But I found myself always just wanting to shot with the 5d mkiii.  I ended up selling my 7d and bought the 100mm F2.8L Macro.

Got into Photography as a hobby to keep my mind off of work.  Most of the people I knew had Canon so I figured they could help me learn the camera and I could borow lens to get started.....Fast forward 5 years and the addiction led me from a T2i to a 7d to now a 5dmkiii and some awesome lens.  I have a friend that shoots Nikon now and I don't like the ergonomics at all.  Maybe its because I'm used to Canon now.  Also, I shot some sports and wildlife and if you have ever used a tele with a Canon and a Nikon...The canon drives the focus so much faster.  Try a close to infinity test and you'll see what I'm talking about. 

I was upset at first when the new round of Nikons seemed to knock Canon back a few steps but I've seen the results and I still prefer Canon over Nikon.  I don't need the extra mp (I understand some do) and I like Canons AF and IQ about ISO 100 better.  I must average ISO 1600 in my shots so that is very important.

I'm thinking it could be an expensive body cap for travel....

I think it will be another camera.

Yea I don't think this camera is going to happen.  If it does...someone in Marketing should get fired for giving out an upgrade to the 7D...

EOS Bodies / Re: I love Primes.
« on: August 23, 2012, 10:30:36 PM »
I'm slowly moving away from my zooms and towards primes.  I find I usually use a zoom at either the wide end or the long end so why not just get a prime and get a sharper image...the 85 1.2L is calling my name.

I usually shoot manual but I still use still because I'm so use to adjusting to proper exposure.  This gives me the chance outdoors to expose to the grass and then as I look around the sky doesn't afect me as much.  I know I could just not change but I'm just used to movign things around to get the exposure I can forget.

40mm F2.8?  I've done some shots in museums and even at 2.8 I sometimes need 3200ISO to get a good shot.   There is a canon 28mm F1.8 that might do you well in your price range.
