EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D3 Auto ISO
« on: June 06, 2014, 11:59:50 AM »
at 24mm, i would like it to stay at or above 1/50.  at 200mm, 1/200 would generally be fine for me.

i wish you could set it for a few different focal lengths instead of a single deault.  16, 24, 50, 85, 100, 150 & 200mm would be cool    8)

It calls "M" mode in 5D III. You control aperture and shutter speed, camera selects best ISO.

When shooting in "M" mode:
1. Indoor or low light shooting, keep an eye on high ISO. My cut off point is 6400
2. Outdoor/day light, keep an eye on exp comp

EOS Bodies / Re: 50d just died, trip in a week, what should I do?
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:50:17 AM »
Huh 70d over 7d..?On the specs the 7d seems to be on par or above the 70d. May I ask why you would choose the 70d over the 7d? Is it the newer tech of the 70d?

Sounds like your question has been answered.

Try to get 6D if you can. Keeper rate might be low when shooting sport, but still, you CAN use it to shoot sport. The key to FF is you get MUCH-MUCH better IQ.

Likely many already said, 6D + 24-105 deal is a good start. I would add 50mm f1.4 if budget allows.

Updated the original post.

Here are some much better images now I have had time to evaluate the problem and to help my send back procedure.

As you can see I don't think I'm being over the top, there is a rather big, strange shaped object in-between the 1st and second element of the lens, its not a second hand lens it is brand new straight from the factory!

You paid for brand new lens, you should get nice clean brand new lens.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: EDC gear
« on: June 06, 2014, 10:20:31 AM »
what I meant with my original question was to get to know what you use and carry each and every day

so feel free to share  ;)

I apologize for being off topic.

I'm using this to hold all my gear, except 400mm f2.8 IS II: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/611107-REG/Lowepro_LP36033_PWW_Pro_Roller_x200_Case.html  I always have 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II attached to x2 5D III at all time. The primes are in the bag when needed.

Since I like to have all the gear with me including 400mm, I'm thinking this: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/967310-REG/think_tank_photo_576_30_high_volume_rolling.html

Add 40mm pancake to your kit = DONE

Your current body and lenses are solid, unless you need more speed.

yes I was thinking about this option, but if I'll byu some lens now, it'll be some faaast prime  ;)

PS: or Sony RX1 - it's really tempting

My wife uses RX1, she likes it a lot.

Lenses / Re: Canon 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II is one GREAT combo
« on: June 06, 2014, 08:55:16 AM »
Bottom line is: 24-70 II + 70-200 f2.8 IS II is one GREAT combo

Great combo for shoulder and back pain as well... Oh, you meant for taking pictures? 101% agree to that :P

The BR dual strap works really good - it gives a better balance. I didn't feel any pain during or a day after.

Off topic: I saw 2-3 Nikon shooters with their big guns and flashes. I really wanted to show them my 400mm f2.8 IS II, but the shooting distance was too close. Anyways, it was indoor low light, ISO4000 to ISO5000 photos still look amazing.

Thanks all, I have about a thousand images of him, so I could feed you for a long time. And with the risk of being boring, here´s one more.

This one is shot with the 85mm 1.2L II at f2.8. Not my regular wildlife lens, but on the other hand, I normally don´t shoot much under such conditions either.

very nice Eldar

Around $1300 would be about right for the budget.
Thanks for your help:)

Keep an eye on 6D deals. It will be day & night dif. in term of IQ. If sport is your thing, then, I would take 70d over 7D.
