That is utterly, utterly, wrong. If for no other reason than the simple fact that the 5D Mark II is in no way worse than the 5D Mark III in terms of DR.
Canon's ef-s 10-22 is a good choice for your wider focal length needs. I had it for my crop camera, and it worked well. The range fits well with your 24-105.does the 10-22 cover full frame for a 5D???
The 70-200 II + 1.4x III works well IQ-wise but AF speed takes a noticeable hit. The effect is most noticeable if the subject is moving directly towards/away form the lens (tracking). You might have to experiment with your 7D settings (AF point expansion, etc.) to compensate (I use a 5DII). If you really need the reach, it might be worth looking into the 100-400. I'm waiting for version II, so I'm using the 1.4x III as a stop gap measure.
Have you installed Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 3.12?i got this message when i tried to install it
something must be wrong with your camera, because i posted the exact opposite a few weeks ago, i had d800 on my set and a MK3 and we did tests and i was surprised by how much darker the nikon was then the canon, i had to decrease the shutter on the nikon more then half to get the stop i was getting with the canon.Has anyone noticed that their 5D MK3 isnt as sensitive as it perhaps should be?
Everytime I shoot with it I find I am going up a whole ISO range than I would have done on my first 5DMK1
I did a little comparison, same ISO, ƒstop, speed, and same exact lens between both bodies and my 5DMK1 produced a brighter image.
Anyone else out there with this issue?
interesting because the same thing is happenig with video. for instance take a D800 set it to 1/50shutter speed and ISO400 at f/2.8. do the same scene with the canon. The D800 footage will look a LOT brighter for the same exact settings. One could attribute it to the lens f/stop roudning, but I've seen the same phenomenon repeated with other lenses. It can't be a coincidence. My conspiracy theory is that canon is overstating ISO to look good on paper. I'm sure the truth will come out as more and more people test it and if an OEM is playing tricks, there will be a s**t brewing.
