the sigma is faster focusing than the lethargic beast of an L lens.But the L lens is creamier and better built although its not weather sealed.I would go for the siggy but i have heard of focussing issues dont know if there is any truth to them though.

stick the uv filter in your bag and bring it out when you believe there could be a chance of damage as in kids or drunks or salt water and sand.
Its pretty simple if canon are selling this in the numbers that they expect then the price will stay the same for the foreseeable future on the other hand if its not selling well and there not making enough money which is what its all about they will drop the price simples. i expect to see a couple of hundred uk pounds off this camera for xmas.
maybe you are correct but people are coming on here saying the 5d3 AF system is rubbish and that my friend is total bullS___!what it is is someone who has bought a new camera and doesn't have a clue how to operate it!Man, what happened to Canon's QC?
Man, what happened to originality in trolling?
Seriously, have you no self respect? This "Canon QC is crap" line is old - you must try harder.
Seriously, it's an old line...and still used because it's still relevant. 1DIII AF issue? 5DII black spots issue?
I find it curious that of all the recent releases, almost all of them have been delayed for unstated reasons...the 8-15 fisheye, the 4 supertele lenses, now the 1D X and 24-70 II are also delayed. Why? Is it simply for production reasons, or were problems identified with early units, resulting in a need to re-tool? If so, that speaks to good QC, rather than poor QC, even if many people are upset with the delays. Yet...the 5DIII came out on schedule, and a DPP update had to be released to support it. Both have at least one known, acknowledged issue (IS noise with 200/2 and 800/5.6 for the 5DIII, soft RAW conversions with HQ mode for DPP). Might there be other bona fide issues? While Canon's QC might be quite good, it may be that they were overruled by marketing and pushed the 5DIII and DPP out the door with known issues.
here we go again people saying the camera has issues and they have just taken it out the box tut tut please use the camera for a month learn how to use it properly then come back saying how bad it is or good.
maybe there are some problems but people have had there 5d3's no more than a week theres one thread here who said he shot a wedding with it and the AF is rubbish i mean cmon seriously WTF give yourself time with the equipment and learn how to use it properly this is a whole new complex AF system and im sure it's awesome although i dont have one yet so dont take my word for it.I think before people start commenting on the camera they should do so after at least 3-4 weeks hard usage then i will take your work for it.
