Until a fully featured ML version is compiled and distributed for 5D3 (with 1.2.1 firmware) it is purely theoretical...

What I'm looking at...

(sell 60D, 10-22, 70-200, keep 50 b/c why the hell not?)

5D III (toying with the 1D IV for build and speed but perhaps as a second body next year?)
5D III would be my choice! (In fact I do have it and I have not regretted it)

16-35 II (traveling, street, some landscape, group or environmental portraits even)
OK direct replacement of 10-22

70-200 2.8 IS II (everything...weddings, events, portrait, some closer wildlife)
Not so fast. You are coming from a lightweight set. Have you tried 70-200 2.8 IS II? It is heavy!
Plus, your 70-200 is an EXCELLENT lens.

135L (covers my portraits, some street stuff, events/stage stuff)

24 1.4L (not as good as the TS but it's more versatile. churches, markets, lowlight, astro)
As you said not so good as the TS. You can forget it for astro. It has HUGE coma!

Plenty of people are actually selling their 35L copies to purchase the new 35mm Sigma.
Where did you get this information?
+1 I do have a 35L 1.4 and I am not selling it. I am not interested in Sigma/Tokina/Tamron/etc...

22. Wanting an almost infinite megapixel camera in order to make prints that will be seen from ... space  ;D
P.S Even if the best lenses cannot resolve more than ~ 20Mpixels (According to DxO)

10. Should I get the <insert existing camera> or wait for <insert future camera> ?   ;D

I would never agree giving up the rights but it's your call. What has happened ?

Always pronounced it 'Nick-On'  not nigh-con or knee-con.  Don't really care if I'm right.

Lenses / Re: Canon EF 24-70 f/2.8L II
« on: July 08, 2013, 09:16:04 PM »
I bought the new 24-70 two times....the first time i used it and said to myself....hell this lens is boring. So i sold it. Than i bought it a second time to give it another try. What should i say...it was still boring. I mean...this Lens is sharp like a knife...but for me it has a boring look. So i sold it again. I rarly use Zoom-lenses and the 24-70 has not enough reach...so i bought the 24-105. this Lens is also boring  ;) but has a better Zoom range.
Very interesting!
Maybe every lens bores you! Or maybe just zoom lenses.

In the latter case may I suggest a therapy cocktail consisting of some of the following lenses:

14L II, 17TSE, 24TSE II, 35 1.4L, 85 1.2L II, 135L

If your boredom is still not cured I suggest a last step: a 500mm f/4L IS II.

Now if even then you feel bored then the solution is to pick ... another hobby

P.S Make sure you use the lenses twice a day (Use before or after breakfast/lunch/dinner is irrelevant)

Lenses / Re: What's the Difference: 1.4X EF Extender 2 Vs. 3
« on: July 08, 2013, 08:52:57 PM »
So it seems all of you who had compared EF2X II and III agree that 2X III has better IQ than version II. Next year I will give it a serious thought.
Thanks for the information.

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 70D a New Benchmark in ISO Performance?
« on: July 08, 2013, 07:19:35 AM »
a 70D doing better than 6D in ISO performance is all possible.
Just like a 6 cylinder car out doing a 8 cylinder car of the same engine capacity because they have new technology applied. but when then new tech is apply to the 8 cylinder engine it will over come again.

So APS-c do better than FF for a while, then FF improve again.

no that is impossible from,  Canon have  then solved the earth's energy problems  if  a APS sensor has that kind of QE

That's correct. The good effect of all that is improvement across the whole field which will be applied in a hopefully much more advanced form in upcoming FF bodies.
And then we wake up  ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Why a high MP camera?
« on: July 07, 2013, 01:19:44 PM »
5DIII owners are arguing this point as if they are Macgyvers of photography who get the job done with the bare minimum... lol

There are plenty of uses for infinitely high megapixel counts.  Maybe not for weddings or casual shooting... but in general, you might accomplish the same shot with a cheaper/sharper lens and still have the freedom to frame what you want after the shot.  Working in advertising, I often reuse the same image for different purposes—some cropped in extremely close.  With retina displays coming on to the scene, high resolution isn't just for big prints. 

Also, for stock photography photos are priced by size (at least on istockphoto).  Not to say that most people NEED those big sizes... but as long as they will pay, I am a fan
1st. You are being both rude and ignorant of the fact that not everyone needs a high megapixel camera. Your needs are NOT everyone's needs. The mere fact that you laugh at people who are satisfied with their 5DIII camera is ... funny to say the least...  Especially since NO ONE  said there shouldn't be a high megapixel camera.
2nd. You ignore the fact that lenses cannot resolve "infinite megapixels" Take a look at DxO for a change...
3rd. A cheaper/sharper lens. Mmmm interesting. With a few exceptions cheaper and sharper are mutually exclusive properties.

I'm sure the threads in the Nikon forums back then ("12 mp is enough, no one needs 21mp") are the same as from Canon loyalists now ("22mp is enough, no one needs 36mp")...

Similar but not the same or even close. 12 -> 21 is a much bigger jump in system resolution than 22 -> 36, taking into account all other factors for resolution.
+1 Plus, it's the combinations of Cameras and Lenses that count so the difference of 22Mpixel Canon with top Canon lenses and 36Mpixel Nikon with top Nikon lenses is not so much according to DxO if I recall correctly. Sure D800 wins but not by much.

There are Nikon lenses equal good as Canon, there are lenses from Sigma, Tamron etc
Put a good lens on a d800 and I guarantee that you will se a difference, the same difference IF Canon had a 36Mp camera today

I was thinking of the above DxO comparison:
Canon 5D3 with Canon 24-70 2.8 II and Nikon D800 with Nikon  AF-S Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8G ED

Boo! You only tested the 40mm at one focal length???? Incomplete review!

Yeah, sorry about that 8)  I'll try to milk more focal lengths out of it the next time.
;D You have to test it at least at 39mm and 41mm  ;D

This will bring the same views as when CDs started to usurp the analogue 33 1/3 world. When you look at those multi million $ images ,esp the one of the girl in the dress as well the Rhine one ,it seems the answer is ....whoever will pay for it can call it what they want.
;D  ;D  ;D
