i forgot to mention also that non canon lenses are more prone to having off autofocus and you camera body does not have AF micro adjust to correct for this in camera so sticking with branded canon gear is a safer bet

Hell, I just can't believe that 3499$ = 3499€ so I figured some things out :haha you are joking but since i will be getting 2 i was seriously considering a trip to NY to get them if prices here in oz were not reasonable but since i snagged one at 3599 i dont need to now all up the trip would have cost more but it would have been fun anyway as i have never been.
- with today's rate, 3499$ = 2662,50€
- difference with european pricing is = 836,50€
- three days trip from Paris to NY, including flights and hotel is approximately 700€
- I've never been to NY before, and I could actually SAVE MONEY if I'd go visit it ... WHO'S IN ??
And, by the way, although it's (maybe, maybe not) a humorous topic, it could help me knowing some things about taxes and toll controls : is it true that if I get there, buy a camera on the first day, and then shoot 1,000 pics of NY, I'll be able to go through the frontiers with a "used" camera Won't they check the date I bought it and say "you're kidding us (US^^) you bought that three days ago !!" .... Thanks for your help / experiences
Since this is a wishlist - built in battery grip would be great!
Built in? you mean a 1D form factor? What about the people who want a lighter body?
make it in two bodies type, one with integrated grip and one without. that feature will be a premier in DSLR market.
....and the price can be under $2400 ( say $2399 for the gripped one and $ 1799-1899 for the normal body). i personally believe that the gripped one will have more success.
On Craigslist there are several 15-85's on sale for about 300 also.... so we'll see thanks
i'll just be happy not having to unpack 50 million things out of my camera bag so i can dig the little bubble out of the bottom where it migrated to and got hiddenA nice little feature on the 5DIII is the electronic level on the screen (same as the 7D).
A nice to have for tripod work
I so need that i always get the horrizon off unless i pop my little green bubble level on top
I was thinking of sunset/sunrise when it is difficult to see the little bubble
here is an HDR shot on a 12MP Nikon D90 with 18-200 @50mm from memory the previous one i posted was from a canon 1Dmk3 16-35 @35mm
I sell mine on gumtree (the Australia equivalent of Craigslist).
Yep another strong vote for Gumtree if you are in Australia. eBay is officially on the nose now for private sellers.
