How Digital Photo Professional report it? That should be your true test.

My best guess would be that a change to the way the new firmware saves lens info in the RAW file isn't being correctly interpreted by Aperture.

I'd report it here: http://www.apple.com/feedback/aperture.html

I love my 5D Mk III, but for the price it should have been something more.
-Canon had touch screen technology ready a few months later in the T4i... I would love pinchy/zoomy/swipey navigation through my shots.
-Build cost estimates for the Nexus 7 tablet show the Wifi/BlueTooth/GPS chip as costing $11...come on Canon, this the new 5D, INCLUDE IT!
-USB 3.0?
-Interval shooting?

Besides pros, the market for the 5D MK III is well-healed enthusiasts like myself. We live and work in the gadget age and expect high-end gear in 2012 to have all the bells and whistles. The 5D Mk III met my requirement of 5D MK II IQ and 7D speed, so I preordered it immediately. However, I really hoped it would be something next-level. Canon missed an opportunity to have another wild hit and I think that is where better leadership could help.

As others have said, the camera was probably set so that you must push the "AF On" button on the back of the camera for AF to start. Some people prefer to separate focusing from light metering, both of which happen by default when you half-press the shutter button. When set this way,  you can aim the camera at your subject and press AF On to focus, then recompose the shot and touch the shutter to light meter the scene as recomposed before taking the picture.

Anyone think a preemptive petition is in order? Maybe if Google sees some early groundswell in support of the plugins they will be less tempted to axe them.

The Tamron breaking down so early in its life does not bode well for being able to count on it when needed.  using three dabs of glue to hold a large diameter element in place is really cutting corners.  I'd expect them to be failing in droves before they are a year old, and as the adhesive dries out a little more.

I would hope they make a production adjustment to address this.

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask them here or in the comments to the blog post. We are pretty responsive!


Any chance we could see comparisons at 35 and 50mm too?

To me the numbers make a strong argument for the Tamron. People have sworn by the Canon 24-70 Mk I, yet the Tamron beats it in resolution and adds IS.

I don't own a 24-70, but am looking for a faster alternative to my 24-105. Hmm... My concerns would be AF speed and build quality.

Speedlites, Printers, Accessories / Re: Lens case for 70-200 f/2.8 II

The factory case doesn't offer much padding. I guess it depends what you plan to use the case for. Protecting the lens during travel? Wearing it on your hip for quick lens changes while shooing events? If so, it's probably worth it to but the something sturdier like you have suggested.

The situation isn't straightforward. After reporting perfect success with this extender I suddenly had trouble Memorial Day Weekend. Mounted on my 70-200 II it was working and then it wasn't. It would lock up the body when using any of my lenses. Then Canon updated firmware for the 5D III to address an issue with Canon extenders. This resolved my issue with this extender for every lens I have except my 400mm 2.8 L II (non-IS).

I really have no idea why it suddenly stopped working, but the firmware mostly resolved it.

Adding to IIIHobbs suggestion, I would also suggest you consider using auto-Iso and manual or shutter priority. The camera still meters in manual when auto-iso is set. This lets you control the motion blur and depth of field while still enjoying auto metering.

100-400 is the airshow king. I know you don't own it, but that and the 24-105 would cover it.
