Here it is at 400% magnification.

This image ?

I see noise in the second pic (it's taken at 6400ISO, so it's what you'd expect).

Okay, I'm seeing some halos around the stars in the first pic. Is this what you are referring to?  Could this just be a JPEG artifact?

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price
« on: March 02, 2012, 12:24:35 PM »
The price relative to the d800 makes sense.  Canon won a lot of market share with the 5d mkII, so they figure they can price a camera which is the same overall quality(with different strengths) above the competition because of switching costs.  Canon must feel that 700 is less than the switching cost, and they are probably right.

^Thank you for correcting my math.

The comparison to Blu-ray is a bit deceiving though. Because Blu-ray is a finalized product in compressed form. You need more information to do post production work. But either way, 90Mbs looks good. I just hope they don't nerf it when they realize that it outclasses the C300 in this one aspect.

it does look like it beats the c300 in bitrate though. The way I interepret the specs is 10.1 MBs (80Mbs), so that looks like 30fps @4:2:2. Anyone else agree?

What's the max bit-rate on the video?

All I can say is, thank God they moved the on/off switch.

With the new processor we should be able to get a better chroma sample: 4:2:2. It should be able to handle somewhere between 80-100 Mbps, which would be very nice.   

Also, my guess is that they have applied the tweaks that limit the well known image artifact issues of the mkII.

If they can do this, I'll be happy.

My wife is the real Photog, so if I get her the new 5d mkIII, then i get her old mkII.

I don't think they'd be building that massive stage in Shanghai just to announce B-list product.  We're gonna see 5D something.

They are definitely not sharper, but they are significantly less expensive.

I don't know about that, I used the 50 1.4 and didn't see much of a difference between it and my 50L.  The 50mm f/2 Makro is definitely sharper than my 50L.

I will concede this point.

@ frank.  Thanks for the info.  I'm curious, why do people tend toward the Zeiss lenses, primes specifically, when shooting video?  Does this do with the manual focus?  Are they significantly better than L primes?

i think zeiss give better color, sharper corner... n smoother focus?

They are definitely not sharper, but they are significantly less expensive.

Zeis 50mm f/1.4 goes for about  $750
Canon 50mm f/1.2 L goes for about  $1400

Check out the review site I posted above.  It's detailed in the breakdown.

that 24-105 is a good all around lens. You might want to think about some longer lenses(200mm L), if you are dead set on going with the kit lens.

Otherwise I might forget about the kit lens and go with the primes.  Canon 35mmLI,  50mm LII, and 85mmLII. Although all three might break your budget, so i'd sub in a 35mm f2 for the L series since resolving power is probably more important in the closeups. 

Check this site out.

Anyone getting started right now should use GIMP.  It's only real draw-back is bit-depth, but that should be gone in year or two.
