and I thought it was just sweep panoramas that were owning us...

I find that even 3200 is usable from the 1D3 with some NR from topaz denoise
generally i try and keep to 1600 but will bump it up if needed
Another APS-H user! Maybe we really are related
I'm going to keep my eye on the used 1DIV market once the 1Dx is finally released
Has anyone noticed that the standard picture style seems to have changed from past Canon DSLR's like my 60d. Today I shot my son getting easter eggs and when he was at larger DOF's the grass seemed fine but when I grabbed him and the grass was starting to get blown out it was like neon green. Never seen that before. Anyone change or alter their default picture style?
exactly! just grab a pile of cheap yongnuo flashes for dumb lighting still need odin recievers at $200 a pop though but you can get 3 flashes and recievers for what a 600 costs...since the yongnuo 565 dont have high speed sync but have ettl and the odins let you shoot right out to 1/8000 anyway it makes it such a cheap setupWombat... One of the features that intrigues me about the Odins is the ability to mix ETTL and non ETTL groups. So, say you want to expose a subject properly and use and adjust ratios for that, but say you want to use another group to blow out a background. You can use two or three Canons to set up the light on the subject but use a couple of cheapies set to full manual to blow out the wall. If you just need a little added extra simple lighting, you can use a $70 dumb flash in conjunction with the rest of your setup. Brilliant.
I think i would run around like a school girl at a justin beiber concert screaming if they released a constant aperture f2.0 16-35
I would like to see that!
Hand held a 600mm lens without IS? Ridiculous, and that's not even taking into account that it must have weighed a ton holding that thing. Must have some pretty big guns lol (not talking about lenses)
this guy didn't want his picture taken
Since we're beyond karma and "my gear is better" I hope we can discuss this in cool blood :-) ... so: For this image size, I think the sharpness of the best zone (the hairs) is like than my 70-300L = 480mm without tc. But it's hard to say due to motion blur because 1/500s is the absolute minimum for 420mm, I try to have at least 1/1000 for shots of this kind - for this reason and if I'd have shot this one I'd have scrapped it for bad iq.
Which makes me want to point out again: A very good or even the best tc at lest at decent iso seems to be an aps-c sensor, and even if I ever upgrade to ff I'm likely to keep my crop camera for tele shots.
