If I am correct, yes. There was a strange big light ball in the nightsky I was able to focus at beneath a Septmeber sky last year. So, I asked at flickr. Well, most of the time I focus manually...So not a big issue under the nightsky.  ;)

Hi,
My 5D3 is a great cam. Coming from the 30D I set its AF by suggestion of my brick and mortar dealer on the center AF point. In 90% of the cases it works great.
But compared to the 30Ds center AF point which was quite snappy even at very distant and dim light in moonless nights, the 5D3 AF is struggling a bit. Still being in my learning curve since August, what are the mistakes by my side while handling my gear.
AF on the moon: no problem.
AF on Jupiter: mostly no problem.
AF on some distant, dimmer light at full darkness...not always working.

Guess I've read about slight issues here, so thank you for any help
Cheers, Peter in Switzerland.

IS on a 50 f/1.4? Not a must have for me. But for videoshooters using a DSLR it might make sense.

Quite unlikely, I guess.

Canon General / Re: Why buy from a bricks and mortar store?
« on: January 19, 2013, 05:24:18 AM »
I prefer a bricks and mortar store over an online shop when it comes down to bodies. Bought my 30D some years ago online. Had dust and oil issues and got treated very unkind. Therefore past August I bought my 5D3 at a brick and mortar store in a town nearby. Friendly people, knowing what they're talking about (went there backed with good research knowledge already). They even lowered the price by about 100 swiss francs as I paid in cash. They will see me again. For lenses, I prefer an online store.

Frist photo looks fishy to me. Can't see any tape attached to the box, so... ::)

14-24. Just curious about the pricetag ;-) Anyway, the 16-35 "will do". Planning on it for maybe later this year.

EOS Bodies / Re: DSLR & Lens Coming on January 15, 2013? [CR1]

Looking for an announcement - Isn't Feb usually the month for the xxxD rebel ranges - are we a month out?

Is the departure of a major UK distributor - Jessops - Making it a bad time to announce a new dSLR body?

Anyway always looking out for new sensor tech from Canon.

700D by Feb, what else? 14-24?  8)

The one that meets the needs. As I do not own all too many at the time and never will. For being short of a WA at the moment coming from crop, the 28 F/2.8 is first choice when it comes to nightscapes. Otherwise I am really discovering the 50 F/1.4 as a fine prime for lowlight. Later this year I guess I'll go for the classic 16-35 range and a few years from now I'd like to go for a 14-24 should it ever hit the shelves...But preferably I will burn the money for another 5D two product cycles from now (2018).

Well, at least it is a Tuesday...;-) So, looking forward to a CR3 for a 14-24 announcement. If not, I will get the 16-35 sometime later this year and will get at least some decent CR2s every now and then.  8)

Reviews / Re: Canon 6D review and Canon 6D vs 5D mark III

I do not call that a review, more one persons opinion about a camera.

intresting experience shared. does the 1/3 of a stop improvement in low light refer to JPEG or RAW. As the MP count of the sensor in the 6D is slightly lower, this might add to it as well.

Lenses / Re: 17-40 vs 16-35, which one got the mojo ?
« on: January 12, 2013, 05:42:52 PM »

.
"Mojo" is a dangerous thing.

Your mojo may not be my mojo.

Advice: Rent a 17-40. If it gets you off, buy one. If it doesn't, rent a 16-35. If it gets you off, buy one. If it doesn't, maybe you need to redefine your mojo.
Sound advice.
