A 7d2 would meet my meager needs for FPS. 5D3 & 2 stuff is getting some pub, albeit, in a niche publication.

I am partial to 16-35, but at my age, the pancake might make sense.  Does anyone know of a "bacon" promotion to go with it?  Fortunately, my cardiologist is not a member of this site, eh?

Congratz!  You will love the MKIII!  Even in my 2 months of shooting the new unit, I can see that my sub-standard work has improved to standard.

24-70 v1 most of the tyme.  Itz a tank, but is right in the range of my talent.  And, you can shoot in the rain, up here, :D in the beautiful Miami Beach of Canada(upstate NY).

I knew Canon nomenclature from my video days and was too olde to learn a new language.  No regrets, worked out well for me.

"At least I haven't heard any mention of a shotgun!"

In elopement photography and videography, barrel distortion can be a good thing!

Welcome aboard, laddie!  This site is a goldmine of information.

My username is based on my fascination of hyphenated names, probably from watching too much Carson, Leno, Letterman, Pythons, et al, on late night television.  So, it is a combination of catwalker Heidi Klum, and former 3rd baseman for the Dodgers, Ron Cey, accompanied by a first name and middle initial which fit my level of talent.

Some very good advice above, eh?  All I can add is to try and visit the venues to be used before you have to go live to determine lighting and sound quirks, angles, shooting positions, et al.  "Emergency weddings" are why I restrict myself to elopements where run & gun is my 1st and only General Order.

Lenses / Re: Have 5D3, will shoot... but which lens?

Another vote for the 24-105 L, even in my talent-free hand, it is a winner in decent light.

Among the sites I frequent, Rockwell has probably saved me $ over time.  He, and others, frequently say:(paraphrased) 'if you are not a full time pro, this upgrade is probably not worth it for you".  That said, I'm am enjoying my week old MkIII.

Very nice piece of work with consistent timing.  As my 5DMKIII arrived last Friday, your piece will motivate me to pick up the creative pace.  Thanks.

With a video background, while relearning stills, I have to say that the 5DII- 1.2L  combo is $ in the bank.  Also, very nice for my deserted streets at 4 AM/PM folio.  And, it is good to see the word "pedantic", one of my favorites, get some press.

User manuals in America are required by law to pass the "my wife" test.  There is a reason we call them "users"!
