EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5d Mark III vs Nikon D800!!!
« on: March 01, 2012, 01:24:51 PM »
36mpx of the D800 is not necesaraly a good thing. Noise is a huge concern with that camera but we need to see both RAW's and compare. Until then.... we won't know..

I just got back from leading a 5 days bird photography tour around Florida. At times my 7D with my Canon 800mm lens was WAAAYYY too close. A full frame would have been nice but my 5D MKII is too slow for that.

Based on the current specs, the 5D MKIII is a winner and believe it or not, I can see myself using this body a lot when the subjects are close like they are here in Florida.

Personally, I'm too heavily invested in Canon lenses to switch brands.

This is something else I don't understand. I will be happy to adopt a Nikon LANDSCAPE set up if I can't get what I want from Canon but I can easy leave my current Canon set up for Bird Photography.

Why does everyone always have the thought of always "jumping ship" instead of having an open mind to use both systems?? After all, they are just tools to create images.

I have no problems using both systems, in fact that will help me even more during my workshops and seminars.

People talk all the time about the AF of the 5D MKII not being so great and so on but with a good technique anything can be possible. Here are few images.

I love my 5D MKII that's for sure!

First off, great photos. Love the bald eagle, fantastic shot!

As for "anything can be possible", sure, but thats not the point. Every one of your shots is center focused, and thats one of the complaints I've heard from many bird photographers that the 5D II AF doesn't really offer much in the way if in-flight AF tracking without limiting composition options. Generally speaking, better, faster AF systems improve the amount of keepers as well, limiting how frequently you encounter out of focus shots and the like. Finally, the ability to AF track at a high framerate increases the chances of getting an awesome shot with intriguing pose or other characteristics in focus.

Sure, anything is possible...but its more the ease of getting that great shot than it simply being possible that having a nice AF system brings to the table.

You do understand that the 5D MKII was designed for landscapes, studio and pretty much anything that doesn't move fast. So why the argument over a slow AF if most people including myself uses the camera specifically for that. In fact, I often create landscapes in manual focus.

That's why we have the 7D and Mark IV.

PS: Some of the images I create with the 5D MKII were created using all 9 focusing points. Again, a good understanding of your camera availability and a good focusing including tracking, the camera will perform just fine.

I use it all the time with my Canon 800mm with great success. Check out my website to see more images created with this camera and 7D. www.gvisions.org

Thanks!
