The 5D Mark III will have MUCH better detail than the 1Ds Mark III hands down. It has more megapixels, less low iso noise and a much more advanced anti-aliasing filter which will add about 10% more resolution to any lens you put on the 5D Mark III compared to the 1Ds Mark III. I've done very extensive in depth comparisons on all aspects of the 5D Mark III comparing it to the 1D Mark IV, 1Ds Mark IV, 5D Mark II, D800 and a few other cameras and have spoken directly to a few Canon technicians to gain knowledge on the cameras.


Could you provide a link to your comparitive study? Thanks

I bet they're reflections. See if they appear on other shots. Otherwise, nothing to worry about

Good on you Canon - close the plants down permanently if necessary.

Don't let Japan be pushed around by bully boy China.

History says otherwise, and is one of the main reasons for what is happening in China now.

I would recommend trusmt They are the OEM for Letus. I am currently using their rig with the 3:2 VF (works perfectly with 5D3) and FF. The FF quality is superb with no freeplay and the built-in stoppers are really helpful. Talk to Julie, she has been really supportive.

Never put more than 30 megapixel on a small FF sensor. If you want more megapixels buy a medium format camera to earn your money.

Could you explain your statement?

I've tried some centre pinch types from China but the material quality is bad. The letterings are made out of stickers that peel out after some some.

I am now using Tamron cap for all my L lenses. I get them for a good price here

5D MK III Sample Images / Re: Thank you 5D Mark III AF System...
« on: August 01, 2012, 01:36:56 AM »
I have it set to basic Profile #2 for most things in the AF menu. I use the smallest AF points only, and only the cross type ones. I have it set so that it automatically changes AF points when you go from horizontal to vertical shooting. It helps a lot in fast situations. I also have it set so that the DOF preview button, when pressed and held down, changes the camera from ONE SHOT to AI SERVO, so it gives me the best of both worlds. Took me about 1 day of shooting to get used to that, now it just feels normal. And works quite well.

Any camera will have trouble, at f/4, this close to a subject, coming in and out of focus like that, towards the camera.... no camera system, other than manual focusing will really give you great consistent results. But the 5D Mark III does pretty darn good at it if you ask me, which is pretty impressive. I got off a few more shots of her that were not perfect or "good" focus, they were OK for focus, but it didn't take too many attempts to get it perfect. Also, her face or hair or whatever wasn't perfect for most, so this just worked well.

Good technique still is the best bet. I was tracking her with the DOF preview AI SERVO technique, and waiting for the split second where she's hanging in the air at the end of the swing motion, and then taking the photo. The 5D3 did very well. If I wanted to make it far easier I could have stopped down to f/6.3 or f/7.1 and taken a step back, and it would have been far easier. But I still wanted some bokeh background. :)

Thank you for sharing your setup!

Nice set! Which lens and aperture did you use?

You may need to heat up the sensor via live view for 3-4 minutes before the manual sensor cleaning
