with that price better off just ordering from leederville camerahouse at $3599 and get the canon oz warranty
This post triggered another question: what is happening if the lens in the kit has an issue ?just take the lens in
Do you have to send back the entire kit to the store (B&H for example) or just the defecting lens?
This is a feature of the 5diii I'm keen to experiment with
Me too. I have a funny relationship with HDR... I like it, but it doesn't seem to like me very much. The funny thing is that every time I do a series of test shots (say, of my front yard) the HDR works beautifully. Whenever I try to do a serious HDR shot it always turns out terrible. I think photomatix is trolling me.
You want options? Here is a whole page of options:
I am looking at the same question myself but have not settled on which way to go yet, though both the Zork and Novoflex look about right.
Well this is pretty much all I needed to see. Apparently I'm about to become a Nikon-shooter.
The only thing I will really miss is my 70-200 2.8 IS II, but I have heard that Nikon's version is equal in IQ.
I'll probably come across as a heretic to all the 16-35 owners... but I have the 17-40 f/4 L and I highly recommend it. I don't think a superwide really suits portraits that well; longer focal lengths seem to do that better, particularly between 50 and 100mm. You seem to have those lengths covered pretty well. The superwide is really better geared towards landscapes, in which case you're almost always stopped down to f/8 or lower so you'd rarely if ever need the 2.8 for landscape shooting. Just my two cents.all valid points
Yeah i'm leaning more towards holding onto my 5D II and 1D II and just purchasing a 1D III and i think i will be a happy camper for a year or two. $1500 would be very do-able!
17 coming in this month, this will clear most backorders, remaining stock will come Mid April, maybe earlier, we are taking orders again at $3599 with $500 deposits.
Price is back to $3599inc gst, there was an initial error, however with all the orders we put in with Canon Australia, we were able to keep the price as it was.Awesome work!
The main difference between the 1Dx and the 5d3 is crazy fps and metering, and weather sealing.
Plus ... AF point-linked spot metering...
5DIII has point linked metering
Really? Care to provide a reference for that? Because the Canon USA 5D Mark III specs page states:
Max. aperture TTL metering with 63-zone SPC with the following selectable modes:
(1) Evaluative metering (linked to all AF points)
(2) Partial metering (center, approx. 7.2% of viewfinder)
(3) Spot metering (center, approx. 1.5% of viewfinder)
·AF point-linked spot metering not provided.
