I think if your purpose is to do group shots and hand held landscape this is the lens to get. I'd only consider a f/2.8 if I was doing action shots.

I regret not jumping ship to Nikon when the 800e came out. Now Nikon comes out with an update and canon is still dragging their feet with a high mp camera. I loved my mk III , but I see the limitations when I print anything larger than 30x40. I never thought canon would sit back and twiddle their thumbs and scratching their heads for two years, let alone almost three years for an update.That could get Canon to do an update.
It must be truly great because I can't really imagine needing anything better than is offered by the 5DMkIII.This is always said until the next latest and greatest shows up.
I think cf has another ten years of life... but smaller with universal support is big.No one's saying CF cards will disappear overnight but it will lose relevance to newer cameras once a CFast-based Canon body starts shipping. Whatever sales CF cards has within the decade will be for legacy hardware.
The day is coming, but I wouldn't sweat it now.
just curious what you guys think the next cameras will have in regards to their connection for tethered shooting? Will Canon put USB3 or Thunderbolt and if it's Thunderbolt could there be a new version of Thunderbolt that doesn't coincide with today's version?
I have not kept up on the computer news but I do remember when Apple dropped firewire 400 that a lot of cameras were using for tethered shooting
thanks for any insights
p.s any reason why they won't put SDI connections verses HDMI?
you've got to test a pro level camera in cold weatherand the Constance Bay Ice Fishing tournament. That makes four!As for major sporting events the next ones are the 2016 Sumner Games in Brazil, 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and 2018 Winter Games in Korea.
I dont know of any major sporting event in 2015 so my bet is the new 1-Series body will be out sometime in 2016.
The Rugby World Cup is a truly massive sporting event, and will take place in 2015. It will take place in England. I can't wait, as am already looking forward to it!!!
World cup of Cricket also happens early 2015. Thats three major events in 2015!
LOL@ Constance Bay Ice Fishing tournament....times a billion!
If it does not work properly at -30C it is completely useless as a camera. Well known fact.
5mm narrowerDidnt bother waiting and got a 40/2,8
Wow....a completely different lens, even a 24-70L would have been a more versatile alternative
