i think the 5D2 is still going to be significantly better than any T4i unless you absolutely need a flippy out screen and a pop up flash

Does the 5D3 not take old 5D2/7D batteries?certainly does I just popped a full one strait in while the new battery charged up
(of course, that's if you haven't sold your old camera+batteries to fund the upgrade...)
If I am spending $3.5K for camera I want to make sure I am capturing photos without worrying if CF/SD cards are working. Over the course of the yrs. I have used MANY SD cards and CF cards. SanDisk is simply the best in my opinion and you get what you pay for. YES they are $$$$$. I have seen others used Transcend or some other cards but really??? You can ask professional and they will tell you to use SanDisk or Lexar cards. Last thing I want is to lose photos I took. Did I also mention SanDisk Extreme Pro CompactFlash Cards 90MB/s (or 100 MB/s for 128GB) are FAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
at f1.4 it is about as sharp as the 70-200 f2.8 ISII is at f2.8I absolutely love my Sigma 85mm f1.4
f2 is super sharp, noticably sharper than the 70-200 f2.8 IS II is at 85mm and f2.8
I chose it over the canon f1.2L due to considerably faster AF
Thats actually something I've been considering - How much better is it over the 50mm 1.4?
Also, more importantly, how sharp is it at f/1.4 and f/1.8? If its soft there will I be better off with the Canon 1.8?
For you Aussies, camera house in Leederville has them for 3,599 again.
Another vote for benro
I have this one
Is this just a travel tripod for you or do you use it all the time? The reason I ask is I have been considering selling my Gitzo in favour of a 2-series Benro. Nothing longer than a 70-200/2.8 c/w a 5D3. That is what my current Gitzo/Markins/RRS is rated for - so I would want something similar in terms of build.
What's both sad and funny is the price of those 600EXs are starting to approach Speed-o-tron, Elinchrom, or Dynalite prices--and have already hit White Lightning/Alien Bee prices--but with only a small fraction of the power.
Personally, I can't see using a WL or AB mounted to a hot shoe while on the back of a motorcycle in the middle of a pro bicycle race...

wickid, just curious what you did to get such a warm shot... was that light pollution, some special event such as firework smoke/fog, special on camera/post processing filters? Just curious.no it was raining all day and the cloud was super low thats why the sky isn't black it was a break in the rain and those shots are 5 exposures 1 stop increments run through photomatix all the colours on the opera house were because there was some event where they were projecting images onto the sails viewed from circular quay
