bummer, I was lucky to snag a mint condition 600 f4.5 FD off ebay for $1400, such a nice lens and the glass is crystal clear and not a spec of paint missing from it might grab one of those to try out on the 5D2 thanks again

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D2 vs 5D3 ISO100 around 50 test raws
« on: March 27, 2012, 11:06:43 PM »
Executive summary:

I dont know if its still the raw converter being funny but I still think the 5D2 images are sharper, there is definately no mind blowing improvement at ISO100 at very best it's going to be line ball.
Before i started this test i did turn off all NR and the aberation reduction etc just incase any of that shinanigans affected the raws.

TEST 1 files are the best
TEST 2 shows this method of doing AFMA isnt the most accurate compared to test 1
TEST 3 just handheld shots as acheck most are at minimum shutter speed due to low light still I managed to keep it to iso 100 for all lenses except the 300f4L (they are a bit under exposed though)

Provide a single .rar file ...nobody wants to hit RapidShare and wait X seconds for free users for each file.

I did it that way in case people only wanted to get specific body lens combos and not download the whole gig
the filenames clearly show which body and which lens it is for

sheesh tough crowd, I'm not going to bother posting any more of my testing

cool thanks did you actually get it and use it any feedback on how it works? might be really handy for using my FD600

I always use spot focus and have spent an amazing amount of time evaluating this thing so far

I think if there is going to be another FF this year it's going to be an uber MP monster not a bargain basement one

my Sigma 85 f1.4 seems to be working fine i succesfully did all the AFMA last night on it as well as a bunch of other lenses thankfully since its my favourite lens

Are there no landscape photogaphers here?

sorry they all changed to nikon...  :'(

Which model Kenko? If its the latest one, hopefully they can offer a upgrade.  I'd get in contact with them and verify that they are seeing your issue.
 
My tubes are merely pass thru conductors, no electroics.  They should make no difference.

yeah the latest ones
the kenko tubes have electronics and report aperture and exif i'll try them tonight

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5DMk3 Poll Deleted?
« on: March 27, 2012, 08:48:46 PM »
No it was not the 500th thread about what people thought.

It was a poll about frequency of issues (if any) that people have been complaining about with their 5Dmk3.  I'm interested in what issues I should be aware of when my preorder arrives and if it was just a select few.

Guess I also assumed I'd at least get a message as to why the post was deleted.
I made a poll for this already maybe thats why? not sure though

To be honest, the IQ is negligible over my 5D2.  Although all I ever really wanted out of my 5D2 was better AF, Slightly faster frame rate, and a dual card slot.  So I cant complain.  More testing still needs to be done. And a good side by side with the D800.  Ill give a more complete review when I put it through the paces at my wedding.  Ive found wedding photography to be a good testing ground :)

Isn't "testing" at a wedding a bit risky?

brave man! I'm waiting unitl i've fully tested everything before i shoot any critical work with it.

I discovered this last night, I'm very disappointed, I havent tried my kenko extension tubes yet, i'll try them later and see. I hope canon fix this with a firmware update

obviously no one has told that guy you cant take shots of birds with a full frame camera :P

(that was a shameless joke at the expense of the APS-C people, sorry but I couldnt resist)

but more seriously those shots look really good
