i'll trade my soul for it.
The problem with this is what are you going to do when ... 3DMkII is introduced  ;D

Wow! It's now official!  ;) Enjoy with your camera. Did she find out about the charged battery? I guess not  ::)

It is awesome, especially paired with my 70-200 IS II...  Nope, she had no idea, but i think she charged it too, as it was not put in the box as i had put it! :) all is good!
In that case she must have really wondered why the battery has charged in no time at all  ;D

I'd get at least a TS-E lens (17 or 24) a 35 1.4L and 13mm 2L.

13mm 2L?

Now there's a lens I'd sell a kidney for! :P

I dunno what it is....but I want one  :P

"2L ...the final frontier... Where no L has gone before".
OK OK I meant 135mm f/2 L But you knew that ...   :-[

So I was wondering: let's say Canon announces a 17-40 f/4 L IS instead of the 14-24 f/2.8
How many of you will be happier (not just happy for Canon or happy in general for humankind- I mean will seriously plan to buy it)?
Nikon did it- can't be out of the question, and will probably cost similar to the 16-35 II
Would you prefer a 17-40 f/4 IS or a 14-24 f/2.8?

IS is welcome, but what I would really like is a 17-40L ii that is tack sharp on the corners with little distortion. Currently, if I take group shots and have people at the ends, the lens makes a 170lb man look like 340lb... I am still looking for the person that appreciates those kinds of "embellishments".  :P

You are not talking about lens distortion, you are talking about anamorphic projection distortion. That is easily corrected in post if you need to.

In PhotoShop you need to open an 8bit file as the distort filter doesn't work in 16bits up to at least the end of CS5 (not sure about CS6).

Open your file,
1. go - filter > distort > spherize, set to 25%, make sure the option box is set to horizontal only, click OK
2. then - select > all
3. then edit > free transform, set W (width) to 91% and apply changes.

These figures work well for my 16-35 at 16, but you will need to mess about a little to find figures that work for your lenses. But follow this recipe and you 340lb guy will revert to close 170lb.
Thanks! Even if I will have to test it for the 24mm setting this was really useful information...

I am satisfied with my 5DMkII and my recent 5DMkIII.

I have no experience with 7D but this site is full of reports about 7D saying IQ is not so good at high ISO (although I haven't seen any complaints about its focusing which is said to be very good anyway).

I would opt for a 5DMkII for the quality in high ISO and format compatibility with 5DMkIII.

While I am pretty sure we’ll see such a camera eventually, I’m not sure when it will materialize.</p>
Taken from:
The Mathematics of Monkeys and Shakespeare  ;D  ( http://www.nutters.org/docs/monkeys )

I don't know who it was that first talked about the possibility of monkeys typing randomly on typewriters producing Hamlet entirely by chance, but it is an argument that I have often heard. "Sure it's unlikely," I'm told, "but given enough time and enough monkeys, it would happen."

Ok. seriously there is a slightly higher possibility that Canon 3D will materialize eventually. But this could be a nice CR0 rumor for now  ;D

Oh, since you are interested in AF performance at f/2.0 just make sure the 2nd body you get supports AFMA (both 7D and 5DMkII support it).
But you probably know that since your 50D has AFMA capability...

1065
And to answer your question 5DMkII is a fine camera for high ISO. How high always depends on what your needs are and on the specific conditions which you may not control...
