Went from 60D to 5d3 when 6d was already out. Just because focus recompose is a pain. 85L confirmed.

My mom's a great cook - it must be her stove.
My brother's a good writer - must be the typewriter.
My sister is a dancer - I blame the shoes.
Dad got a speeding ticket - must be the "fast" gas.
Little brother took a great picture - he's a photographer.
Who said that all we care about is gear:
Yeah! now we're talking about what really matters ... the Real Things!
I use the 5D III for dance, school sports events where people move about erratically.
I previously used a 1D III also a 7D
I use ,9 point, center single point single shot focusing where I follow my subject with the center focused-locked, half depressing the shutter, on the subject I then quickly re-frame, as the subject is still moving, and complete the shot.
Not very happy as the old 1D III also the 7D were much faster at finding and keeping the focus with fewer missed shots.
Can somebody tell me how come the new 5D is slower at focusing simple focusing tasks then the 1D III and the 7D?
Am I missing something?
Your wisdom is appreciated.
Are you, like me, waiting for a 16/18mm f/1.8 Canon prime ?
Upgrade or downgrade ?+1 on that! I customized one of my shutter buttons with a wet finger covered in DEET. My fingerprint was permanently etched into it and the new texture gave it a better grip. It's not recommended, but it really "personalizes" your camera
Yeah. What lunatic continues to buy gear they hate?
you have not read, what he wrote. He is using multiple Canon bodies for stills and video. Out in the wild.
The last thing I'd want out there is a body from another manufaturer, with different user interface, different sensor characteristics, different batteries, etc. ... how about you?
