I have the 1.4.
I'm pushing my luck shooting at 2.2 on the 7D but can shoot at 1.4 with the 5D.
Is that a body focus issue or a sensor size issue? I always read that the 7D has great AF, as does the 5D3.
I thought Kai's DigitalRev review of the D800 seemed to implicitly state this, namely that the D800 files are so large that it is not entirely practical as a walk around camera. The Ryan Brenizer review effectively stated the same thing because he takes 250K pictures per year, which is not feasible with 70MB file sizes.
Assuming he saves the jpegs for quick proofing; thats 25 TB of disk space per year...
AKA, 1tb every two weeks, approximately.
Thanks for that - there is hope then. I dont live in the US but i am planning a trip with a 2 week window and this purchase is one of the reasons for the trip. I need to ensure that its instock before i buy.
Before you leave call BH and ask them to hold it, I'm sure they'll want payment then too, but then it'll be there for you when you arrive.

You're shooting in RAW and converting in DPP, right?

You should keep the 24-105, 70-200, 580 flash, and 40d; then buy a 27" iMac with a 2tb drive and shoot like mad. I find most people have cheap $99 monitors to view their photos. An iMac is a great and easy to buy system, there are better monitors out there for lots of monies, but the iMac package is hard to beat.

F1.2 and you pick the focal length.

The only way you will know is to shoot till its dead. See how many shots you get. You should be able to shoot all day on one batter for stills. For video. Go buy 5 more batteries
For video with an IS lens, make that 5 a 7.
