Lenses / Re: 70-200 is ii vs non is
« on: February 08, 2013, 01:23:39 PM »
I have non IS and it is sharper than IS mark1. If you want it get it soon as being discontinued.

When I got mine the stellar mark2 IS was not yet announced.

It's all down to personal preference.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 6D or 5D Mark III

Have handled both and prefer the more rugged 5D3.
Autofocus ia a massive improvement on 5D2. 6D seems to have an upgraded 5D2 set up.

The writing has been on the wall for some time.  The closure of Jacobs showed how the market has changed.
Having higher shop prices than internet sales put many people off. In essence the change from film processing to digital images cut into their core business and the reluctance of the big names to allow discounting of their products made the high street stores uncompetitive due to high overheads.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: UPGRADING 7D to FF Please help!!!

I already have a 5d2 and tried out both 6d and 5d3.
6d felt small 6xx size but performed well considering specs. 5d3 outshone it . Unless you need wifi or gps go for 5d3.  I am awaiting arrival of mine c/w grip and 600rt.

I use plastic cling wrap. Apart from protecting the lens it seems to have good static properties that draw the dust out of my lens. Plus from experience growing up it kept fungus out of my lunch so I think same applies for a lens, my sardine sandwiches never went green even if I didn't fancy them for a few days.

For use with a 5dIII without initial mod substitute black stretchfilm

Its a great lens though now dated. Sorry to see it disappear.  Got mine 2 years ago at half the price of V1IS.

It will end the cost comparison with f4IS.  In round figures prices are now £500,£900 or £1800 for different versions

Get one now while you can.

I went from 40D to 5D2 and it is superb for landscapes and macro. Go for 5D3 if you can. You will not regret it.

As for glass go for best you can afford  L series preferably

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 6D vs 5Diii today...
« on: December 05, 2012, 02:50:49 PM »
No question. Go for 5DIII.
It easily outperforms the 6D and is only £100+ dearer for a new grey market body.

1. Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8L USM II
2. Canon EF 24-70mm f2.8L USM II
3. Canon EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS USM II
4. Canon EF 400mm f2.8L IS USM II (+ Extender EF 2x III)
5. Canon EF 600mm f4L IS USM II (+ Extender EF 1.4x III)


My choice as well

A grey import will save you a further £400+

A 5DIII without video will cost a premium over std model duetolow volume. Look at 60Da  over std 60D
