In the 5D3 in AI Servo AF mode, I would like to confirm if the AF configuration tool (tracking sensitivity, accel/decel tracking, AF point auto switching) is active in the 61-point AF area auto selection? This is not clearly stated in the manual and AF guide. Thanks in advance.

Did Canon also make a new lens cap for this?

It seems like Canon knew about the problem during manufacturing and the units with the A or black markings in the battery compartment could be units with some bandaid fix in place. Looks like a design issue.

Spectacular and breath taking! Did you dedicate a lens to each body?

It depends. My 5D3 body did not need any afma for all my five l lenses. Recently I had to send in the body to canon service for a sensor change. After the sensor change the afma drifted to about +5 to +8. I contacted canon about it and they asked me to resend it in for focus calibration. Some accident happened during the af adjustment procedure at canon and they burnt the board (the tech told me that the af was on for too long during testing). I received the new body and after checking the af, it did not need any afma at all for all five lenses.

So, it seems that new 5D3 bodies with factory settings seems to not require any afma. However, the local canon service center may not have the same factory equipment for sensor af adjustment, and the af calibration may not be 100% correlated to the factory equipment. Therefore if any sensor change/reassembly is done at the service center, it may require some afma.

kasperj, could you share your post processing flow? They're generally pretty nicely done.

These are really good shots! Well done! Two bodies and two lenses. What is the lens & body combination you used, e.g. did you have the 85L2 attached to the 1ds3, and the 24-70L2 attached to the 5D3 all the time to minimize lens changing?

I have a basic question: Which software can process the 5D3 RAW movie files? Can Adobe Premiere do this? Thanks

After reading this, I will check my outer AF points too. I had my 5D3 cmos sensor changed under warranty by Canon recently due to unremovable dirt inside the sensor filter. One wonders what is happening with Canon QC.

The 24-105 f4 IS is a versatile lens for dslr videos. The IS helps a lot in stabilization.

What's the approx weight of this lens? Looks to be at least 4kg?

Form-fitting 580 modifiers (e.g. StoFen) do not fit on the 600 head.  However, modifiers for the older 550EX will fit, albeit snugly.

Stofen has released a new diffuser specifically designed for the 600EX.

I received an update from Rayflash today:
