EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Weird filename and number 5D Mark III

its fully customisable in the menus, seems to a random prefix mixture you can set that yourself though

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 L USM - Any negative comments?
« on: March 22, 2012, 11:32:18 PM »
only negative is cant use a 1.4 TC on it and keep AF on anything other than a 1D (pre 1Dx that is)

and yeah you can get a 16-35 f2.8 II and the 70-300 L for what a 28-300 costs its much lighter and more compact than the 28-300 too

SFDTM can you have a look at the raw file i posted here, i'd be interested in your opinion vs your experience

ha soft.
I just posted some raws in the thread about 5Dmk3 AF and sensor improvements
both with the sigma and one with each body

here are a couple of raw files not taken at the same time
but same lens and model (my wife)
first one is 5Dmk3 in AI servo tacking from outer top left focus point walking towards

second one is 5Dmk2 center point focus recompose

I have to recheck the Micro adjust on my sigma 85 for the 5D3 but to me it looks like the 5D2 is sharper
its not 100% fair comparision because i was so excited about AF thats what i wanted to play with yesterday
i'll do more in line comparisons on the weekend.

Pretty stoked on mine.. Feels more substantial, and the AF is pretty crazy.  That said, I'm not seeing a huge amount of IQ difference except at high ISO, above 3200.  Going to test it at a shoot tomorrow night "for real".  At the end of the day though, it doesn't seem like a massive jump from the 5d2.  I also mainly shoot full manual, even focus, so maybe the finer points are being lost on me.  Can't tell if I have the "new gear afterglow" or if I really feel like I got my $3400 worth (compared to what I already have).

How is the Fully MF going without a focusing screen? Is the new VF better in that respect than the MkII one?

WIckedW , when is yours coming, should be today, ay?

i've had it for a day and a half now, the VF standard is FAR better than the 5Dmk2 with an EG-S screen in it
its probably not as good as a 1D VF but its not far off, I'm very happy with the VF upgrade even in dim light 3200 ISO+ i found i could MF well using my sigma 85 f1.4 I dont think i would bother with an EG-S screen in this camera even if they were available.

Anyone compared it at iso 100-400 against the 5DII??
I haven't done any side by side yet just took the 5D3 out last night over the weekend i'll do some decent side by side shooting

actually the closer i look at the raws in bridge and ACR PS the less impressed i am with the 5D3
sharpness seems better in DPP but I hate using DPP :(

did you get a new body? if so how is it?
I'm definately underwhelmed by how bad the jpg files are out of the camera
I'm still checking the raws out but its hard only having DPP and the beta of ACR

D4 is out isnt it? didnt it come out before the 5Dmk3
I suppose it depends upon how one defines out. There are like 4 people who have them.

hehe thats out isnt it? ;)

3161
the in camera jpegs look a bit wierd to me, seems to be alot of softening and they look disappoining when viewed on a monitor (look fine on the camera screen) raws look fine in DPP though but ACR6.7 beta seem noisier than in DPP

dont know whats going on there. might just have to wait for adobe to get their act together with the raw converter for the mk3.

I dont really care that much about jpeg i might just turn off the in camera jpeg altogether and save card space for raws, probably something that can be fixed in firmware.

As long as the raws are clean and sharp i'm happy :D

Funny how the cameras were announced:
1Dx --> D4 --> D800 --> 5D3

And they are being released:
5D3 --> D800 --> D4 --> 1Dx

I just don't understand.

D4 is out isnt it? didnt it come out before the 5Dmk3

have you actually used it or just looking at internet waffle?
This camera is awesome period.
I feel like a veil has been lifted going from the 5D2 to this
I was never unhappy with the IQ from the mk2

I was happy until I saw the output side to side with output from the 1ds3. Need to do the same test with the 5DIII to see how it compares (at iso 100 and 200)

how did you get the 1Ds3 to shoot at 25600!? ;) :P

3164
i got a couple of these a few months ago they have been pretty good
they were half the price when I got them though
wish i had bought more now..
