EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D Mark 3 Queue @ B&H

I pre ordered a 24-70L II the day it was announced, and it said the item was backordered instead of pre ordered. I find it hard to believe that there's going to be huge shortages of that lens, especially since I pre ordered one as soon as it showed up on the B&H website.

Lenses / Purchase thoughts: Canon 5d3 or 24-70L II?
« on: March 12, 2012, 12:46:55 PM »
As a few people on this forum probably are, I'm pretty excited about the new gear that just got announced. I always try to limit myself to one large purchase per year, and so, I'm really stuck on the fence about whether to get the 5d3 or the 24-70L II. I know that reviews aren't out on either one yet, but just based on specs/needs, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts. I'm kind of an all-around hobbyist from family pictures (candid/portrait) to some nature/street photography. I used to have a 1d3 and really miss the joy of having fast reliable AF (even with its perceived issues it was worlds above the 5d2 AF). Thoughts? Thanks!


Current gear is:
5D Mark II, Canon 35mm f/1.4L, Zeiss MP50 f/2, Canon 85 f/1.2L II, Canon 70-200 f/2.8L II

Thanks guys! My wife is a very big fan of the nifty-fifty based on financial reasons, and I'm a fan of the f/1.2L for obvious other reasons. I'll sleep on this one for awhile since I'm in no rush to pick up another lens, and I'm waiting to see if Canon announces anything else over the next couple of months.

Lenses / Canon 50 f/1.2L versus Zeiss 50 MP ZE f/2

Just wondering if people had any thoughts on the IQ of the Canon 50 f/1.2L versus the Zeiss 50 MP f/2. I currently have the Zeiss lens, but have been on the fence to add another 50 mm lens to the list of equipment. I love the IQ of the Zeiss, but there are times where I just can't manually focus quick enough. I can live with a few missed shots here and there, but having AF would be nice. I just wonder if people have any thoughts.
