EOS Bodies / Re: Curious about B&H & mkiii shipments
« on: May 11, 2012, 04:57:32 AM »
Ordered a body from B&H on 04/18. Waited. Waited. Never received any updates from their sales department or customer service.

Saw the body for $3445 on the AAFES (miltary PX) website IN-STOCK! Jumped on it and got a confirmation email that the body would ship 05/12!

Cancelled my order with B&H so I wouldn't end up owning two bodies.

Tracked my order on AAFES today and it says backordered until 06/15! "Oops! We're sorry! Our mistake!"

OH...MY...GOD... :o :( >:( >:( >:(

Out of bodies and kits now...

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5dM3 dual card write speed results

Very interesting! Your results agree with Rob Galbraith's!

http://www.robgalbraith.com/bins/camera_wb_multi_page.asp?cid=6007-12452

Basically, the fastest CF cards will write 4x faster than the fastest SD cards...

If you want to maximize your burst rate, Lexar 1000x is the way to go!

Save your money on the SD card; even the Extreme Pro's can't hit 20MB/s on the 5DIII...

Wonder how this would have worked out if Canon had enabled UHS-1 on the SD slot?

Nikon's pushing hard.  Gotta love competition!  Now if they could only deliver their products :)  I look around quite a bit on NR and there are quite a few people upset about not receiving d800s yet.
By the way, I think the only reason to why there are so many 5D3's in stock is because most 5D2 owners has decided to keep their camera.

In stock? Where? My order with B&H is back-ordered, and they are still trying to fill orders from March from what I hear...

If you're going with a crop sensor; consider the 17-55 f/2.8 EF-S lens.  People that own them swear they are near "L" quality.  It would give you a 27mm-88mm range of coverage.  Wide enough for some landscapes but long enough for some nice portraiture...

Software & Accessories / Re: 5D Mark III - Sandisk or Lexar CF Cards
« on: April 19, 2012, 07:11:27 AM »
The price difference is $100 for a 32GB 60MB/s card or $160 for the 90MB/s version. Do I really need the faster of the two?

I could also get the 32GB 95MB/s SDHC Sandisk instead or in addition to the above card. Is there any reason the SDHC card slot would be slower than the CF slot in the 5D3?

The CF slot really seems to be the "primary" on the 5DIII; it will drive a UDMA 7 card and there is a significant increase in performance.  IF you are a fps hound...  Unfortunately, the only SanDisk CF UDMA 7 card right now is their 128GB $695 bank-breaker...  I won't use Lexar cards any more - had one of their "pro" cards glitch up in my camera and lost an entire shoot.  Never had a problem with a SanDisk card...

The SD card slot is slower on the 5DIII because it is not enabled for UHS-1.  You can put an Extreme Pro card in it, but without the UHS-1 technology it will default down to either 30MB/s or 45MB/s - can't remember which one at the moment...

wickid - Did you get a new 5DIII?  Is it better than your first copy?  Happy with it?

Mt. Spokane - I love how you can see the deformation in the phillips head screw from tightening!  Incredible!
