This is Canon's way of telling people "Your idiots, nothing is wrong... But to make you happy along with the bandwagon, we will do something about it".

Seriously, this light leak issue is the stupidest problem ever. I kind of wish Canon just said there is no issue and be done with it.

This leak has caused all types of negativity for no reason.

From the poll I guess it is safe to say Canon shooters are perfectly fine with 18-22MP offerings.... Very few require or want 30+ MP sensors at this point.

Generally it will be the exact same. But you never know if Canon made any changes and will never know, either.

My thoughts is that production and stuff improves over time, even if the parts/assembly instructions do not. The glass making, IS assemblies, etc... Generally will benefit from an improvement somewhere. Probably not enough to ever know, but that is why I always prefer to have the newer makes of even older lenses.

You realize the grass is not greener on the other side right? ^

Go look at B&H for both Nikon and Canon lenses. Then scroll to the bottom of the list to see all of the out of stock lenses for Nikon and the lack of for Canon. I see 25 Nikon lenses out of stock (not including import models, only USA)... For Canon, only 4... And 2 of those being the super tele's that just came out.

Canon may be delay prone at the beginning... But once out, they can actually keep up with demand and be in stock. Nikon is not so good in that regard.

So chose either initial delay or long-term supply issues.

It's a battery grip, not a big deal.

I want mine badly, but I don't NEED it right now.

And that light leak issue? Please... How can anybody consider that a real issue when it has happened on many other Canon bodies in the past? I mean really... Unless you shoot in dark caves below -1EV and use the top LCD at the same time (who even uses that normally?), does it even matter? Nope. Only to those who want to complain about the camera and use it as "fuel" for the sake of argument.

EOS Bodies / Weather Sealing: 5D3 vs. 5D2 vs. D800 Diagrams
« on: April 26, 2012, 11:13:17 AM »
I put together the weather-sealing diagrams from Canon and Nikon on these cameras and it looks like the 5D3 is more robustly sealed. The 5D3 is also quite a bit better then the 5D2 it replaces with a larger use of gaskets around many of the dials. Canon seems to have done well sealing this body for the elements. Both bodies look great though in general.

I notice the 5D3 has additional sealing in the top LCD, the mounting brackets for the camera strap, tripod mount, diopter adjustment wheel and two switches on the back of the D800 which lack any sealing (from these diagrams). Not sure of the function of these switches so I don't know if sealing would be required, but I am guessing they would be. But who knows :D

Just a little side by side comparison:

And the 5D2:

I have used the HDR feature a few times on "natural" setting and it works great. Nice image.

Somebody did a color-checker calibration with the 5D3 and looks excellent processed through LR for me. I did notice reds are a bit saturated by default, but after loading the calibration profile it looks really good and no longer an issue.

If you want it, PM me your email and I can email it to you. All you do is load it up into lightroom and have it apply as default and good to go.

The DR of the 5D3 files have been great for me. I don't see all that much more DR with D800 files to be honest. The only benefit is extreme pushing of the shadows. Both are excellent. The techradar data looks much more believable.

I think they even used a nikon in that same episode. Or at least they did in the next one. I think they only use nikon cause, lets face it, nikon has a nicer shutter sound. - That happens to be the best feature of a nikon BTW.

I disagree! I heard a D700(?) shutter this past weekend while at an aviary that a Nikon guy had and it sounded really obnoxious. So loud and clunky. I think the Canon's have a much better sound.

In general though, I care less how a shutter sounds :)

I have shot thousands of images with my 5D3 and yet to have ANY image get effected by this "light leak". It is a BS issue that Canon has had to "fix" because so many people wanted to complain about nothing. It has occurred in the 5D2 and other bodies.


But I am glad for those who thought this was the end of the world can now buy one in peace.

No idea what language that is (German?) or what the issue is since I can't understand it, but I have not had any LCD issues. And that looks like an easy firmware fix regardless, and not a hardware issue.

So just wait for the firmware.

So Mr. Sandman,

I am assuming this light leak "issue" ruined many of your photos right? That you are so upset and plan to return the camera? Or are you just flipping out over everybody else making a mountain out of a mole hill?

Calm down man...

To be completely honest, the metering has been more accurate on this then any other Canon I have used in the past. Not a big deal. And guess what? Not just the 5D3 does this either, others have confirmed it has happened with past bodies as well. It's just that the 5D3 is under such a tight eye, that people are trying to find anything and everything to complain about. Go shoot some pictures for goodness sake.

All my JPEG's after LR4 are 13-15MB. SOOC JPEGs much less.
