EOS Bodies / Re: taurians upgrading to 5d mark 3

P.S- sorry guys Taurus and Libra are the only sun signs I actually know about don't even know the names of the others or what ancient mumbo jumbo attributed them to.
Basically, you got four groups:

water: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces - social types ("I gotta tell you about this 5D3 I bought!")
air: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius - cerebral types ("Let me tell you why I bought a 5D3!")
fire: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius - active types ("I bought a 5D3! I BOUGHT A 5D3!")
earth: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn - down to earth types ("What do you care I have a 5D3?")

...and all that, of course, depending on in which of twelve celestial 'houses' or regions the sun was, when you were born. If you want more specifics, you can calculate where the moon and the planets were, so you have a nice set of zodiacal signs to explain your behaviour. Or, of course, you take responsibility for your own actions, but that seems to be less common.

I'm a Pisces.  Upgraded from Rebel T1i to the 6D.  I gotta tell you about this 6D I bought.  :)

A wonderful product.  Used mine attached to the tripod plate.  Carried camera with 70-300 L attached for 6+ hours.

Highly underrated lens...excellent IS.... Great IQ ...congrats.

Thanks Ray, that is almost exactly what I have heard. I ran into a lady a week ago who had one on her 5D2 and she said she never takes it off. She remarked how fast the AF is and how super sharp the photos were. She showed me a few pics on her camera and I was pretty impressed. I believe I made a great choice.


Congratulations.  Excellent high end, affordable lens.  You did make a great choice.  Enjoy it.

Did some serious landscape work in BC last week.  These have been fairly heavily edited, but hopefully they will give an idea of what can be done with the files from this camera.

Love them.  :)

For those who own a 6D, we know it takes great pictures in all lightning conditions.  The concern is the focus.  Here is one I took tracking a sea gull.  I panned and clicked once.  First shot came out fine.
