Thanks Axilrod! Do you shoot RAW or jpeg?

I can literally hear your excitement as you describe your new camera!! It is making me want to upgrade even more from my T3i. I do have one question for you. Are you saying the ISO 800 is about the same as 25000 in JPEG or RAW?
Its interesting that when doing a direct comparison to the 7D the metering and focusing accuracy and the ergonomics and handling are rated much higher than the 5D3. When the 5D3 is very similar in handling if not I would say better, and with the better metering I would say the 5D is better there too.
More reason to think that things are is slipping.
ISO 3200, exposure pulled 1/2 stop. Good sense of motion, but too soft to run large in print. Oh well, maybe next time.
I'm hoping the 7DII will be all about the sensor quality with some modest autofocus improvements. (all else being just gravy)
I think they hit a homerun with this one. There is a solid captive population of MKI and MKII owners whose biggest beef was the autofocus. They have not only given them that they have also given them great native ISO. Very versatile spec. Love it.

as is, i don't believe that this dog is going to hunt.
At least in this test the Canon destroys the Sigma, once again the proverb proves itself..... Buy the best, cry once.
That's the older sigma without HSM! I really would like to see a comparison like this with this newer HSM Sigma...
As a Florida Scuba Photographer, I would think in order to build a watertight case they would need to have the model on hand. Building cases have to be perfect so that you can maintain button functionally and a perfect fit to seal the case.
just my thoughts anyways
The 24-70/2.8 *IS* the 2.8 version of the 24-105/4.
But without the *IS*
