Hey everyone, I wasn't one of those folks who pre-ordered the 1DX and decided just to wait it out and see if there are any bugs or anything before I committed myself to the 1DX.

Mark,

There is nothing to worry about with the 1DX. I'm convinced that the one I used in Feb was a fully functional production version but Canon didn't want everyone to know.

You will love it for what you do!

Good luck!

Lenses / Re: Canon's new 24-70 2.8L II ship date
« on: June 20, 2012, 03:49:37 PM »
The quality and expense of this lens is probably due to the high resolution/mega pixels camera we hope Canon will release soon. You need some serious glass quality to take advantage of cameras like the D800.


I agree this is Canon's future perspective. But right now, is your statement valid the other way around, too? Like you don't need the 24-70ii if you're happy with 21/22mp, esp. if corner sharpness is not the primary concern? I just asked this for weddings, and probably will get the Tamron 24-70 instead: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=7479.0


Yeap! I agree with you. The Tamron should be enough for 22mp!

I doubt this lens is $6000 better than the previous version.  Canon has lost their marbles.

I had the same mentality before I bought my 800mm but after I did, it's worth every penny!

Basically people who don't know how to shoot and have shakey hands.

Bingo!

I picked one up from my local shop today, they had at least 10 in stock.

What are your impressions so far?

It feels rock solid, very nice shape and it hugs the curves of the camera nicely.  It has the same magnesium alloy skeleton that the 5D3 itself has.  It's definitely beefier than the grip on my 5DII (Zeikos, but I'm pretty sure it's the same shape as the BG-E6).  Feels more like a 1-series camera now.  Grips are a must for me, and while it was a little expensive it was worth it for me.  Although I'm still curious to see how the $90 Korean alternative is, I would have picked that one up had it been available first.

I have to agree. Well worth the wait.

I'll get a chance to try it this weekend during my workshop here in Florida.

Doesn't matter. Wait until you shoot with them again and see if you have the same issue. If you do, send them back for replacements. Lifetime warranty.

This is a clear sign that the card is going bad...!

If that's the case, there is a good chance I used a final production body but can't know for sure..

« on: May 23, 2012, 07:20:11 AM »
I have few but not from a final version. Canon allowed me to use one for 24hrs last month!

Yeah the Canon representatives kept saying that the final version would have much better images.

I simply do not believe that!


I don't have the answer to that. I Would like to try a final version and compare the two RAW's. Until then, I can't comment further.

Excellent review. Not surprising at all.

For what I do, the 5D MKIII is worth it. I love the AF capability!

New Canon 600EX-RT is Sweet! - St. Augustine, FL

I received the flash a day before my workshops at the Florida's Birding & Photo Fest last month. This new flash is very efficient. Excellent control capabilities and the 200mm zoom is so much welcome. No Better Beamer for this one. I will try the gels this coming week.

Hope you like it.

Canon 5D MKIII, Canon 800mm L with 20mm Extension Tube, 600EX set at 200mm and -2. All in Manual mode.

Thanks!
