A general note about traveling in China: do not travel in China during the Mid-Autumn festival (first week of October) nor Chinese new-Year (changes with the lunar calendar).

Why? - too many people.


Thanks kaihp

Last 10yrs, I travel to China 3-5 times a year.  I'm well aware of Chinese holidays. That's why we hoping to get the build schedule beginning of 2nd week of Sep.

As a 5D3 owner, I'm so relieved at the outcome!  I love a story with a happy ending!

Yeap...I have two. 5D III is quite awesome camera.

Will there be an EF adapter to fit with current L? I don't want to spend more money on new lenses.

I took over 100 photos yesterday. This is what I get straight out from my camera(JPEG) – over 60% of photos are like this or worst. I haven’t review raw yet.

You guys have any idea?

I’m 15mins away from Canon Service Center in Irvine, CA. My 5D III still under 1yr warranty.

I went home for lunch and transfered all photos to my home PC. Everything seems to be normal now.

Must be something wrong with PC at work >:(

Thanks everyone for the helps.

Dylan

 stupid work computers.  glad your gear is still good.

Thanks man

memory card issues usually do not affect all images, and not the same way.  This could indeed be a camera issue.  It could also be a import issue like a damaged connector.  Don't import thru a cable on the camera to a computer if you can avoid it, its easy to damage the cable connector, and occasionally the camera connector.  Its expensive to fix a camera and card readers are cheap.  Card readers can also cause similar issues, but they can be replaced.

If I recall correctly...someone has posted similar problem. The conclusion was sensor got damaged due to laser stuff in night club.

Again...I don't recall taking my 5D III to night club or playing with laser stuff around 5D III.

I removed the CF from camera this morning and used the card reader at work to transfer the images. I used this card reader before and I didn't have any issues.

So could you see that in the image preview in-camera?

I don't recall seing it during shooting, until I load them into my PC at work today.

If you did not drop, bump your camera or put to extreme weather consitions, I would think it is the card. I use Lexar 16Gb 1000x cards but sofar did not have a problem. But, cards can be fragile. Your test should hopefully prove it is only the card. Good luck

I didn't drop my 5D. will do some cards swapping when I get home today. Still at work.

I went through some review sites, some claimed 14mm f2.8 II is sharp at f2.8. I was hoping to get more feedbacks from CR members about 14mm II. I guess not many of us shooting with 14mm II :-\


I shoot with the 14mm f2.8 II. I was able to trade my 16-35mm for the 14mm and it was the best decision I ever made. I hated the performance of the 16-35mm. In the sides it was soft at seemingly any aperture (and it was an unpleasant softness that I can't really describe). The 14mm is very sharp at 2.8, in contrast with the 16-35, it's near perfect. There's vignetting, but it's very manageable and I have no issues with it. Some CA can come out quite strongly at the widest apertures depending on the lighting in the shot.

These images aren't at 2.8, but at these same apertures on the 16-35mm I would notice flawed sides.

Thanks dmcb for inside info.

Love the 2nd pix. I did have a chance to shoot with Nikon 14-24 with D800 through a friend. I like the 14mm effects a alot.
