Has anyone tried this on a 5dm2? I am a little nervous that it might break my camera but some of the functions would be super useful. Any advice appreciated.

Thank you.
I have used it on my 5D2 for weeks without any problem.  ML doesn't change your firmware, but extended the features from the programs on your CF card.  It's very safe.

Lenses / Re: Sigma 30mm f/1.4 or Canon 35mm f/2?
« on: August 09, 2012, 03:20:12 AM »
If you are not going to upgrade to FF, Sigma 30mm is better.  Otherwise, go with Canon 35mm.  If you decide to buy Sigma 30mm, I will suggest you buy from Amazon because you can return it without shipping charge if the lens has focus problem.  I really wonder how many people has focus issue with Sigma 30mm.  At least my and my friend's Sigma 30mm have no focus issue.
By the way, I sold the lens on CL for 350.  The resell value might be even higher than Canon lens.  There is no worry to try some lenses from Amazon because Amazon has amazing return policy.

I think Canon is too late to have a high MP camera.

It's probably the lens, unfortunately.  That particular sigma lens is making it do something it shouldn't.
That should be the 5D3's firmware problem.  If the image is fine on computer, that means the image is really no problem.  However, when 5D3 resized the image to a 3" LCD, it just didn't compute the output right.

sovietdoc, you should let Canon know the issue, so Canon could fix it in the next version of firmware.

I don't begrudge anyone that doesn't pay or chooses to pay the least amount. I just wanted to put in a word for the ML folks to encourage people to donate and to consider donating more than the minimum.

The more support they get, the more features and support we as a community of Canon users get.

+1
ML folks did a great job for us.  I donated to ML not only because but also I want to show I am thankful.

some of the cheaper 5d3 on ebay have the serial numbers that are affected by the light leaking issue

perhaps bh was trying to sell all the affected units at lower price?
or because most professional have already bought it for this wedding season so the sale was bad hance the quick sale for ones that wanted buy it but ... damn... dont want to pay that much

5d3 over priced? and who doesnt want it to be cheaper? most wedding and event photographers would rather have better lowlight ability than higher resolution.
the ability to use 12800iso confidently in a professional situation really really open up new possibilities!
Honestly light leaking is not a big issue.  I think that was discussed here before and most people do not care about that.  If I can get a new one for about 3K from authorized dealer, I would like to get one now.  I saw 3K deal for new 5D3 on Craigslist and that was really attractive.  However, I don't know if the warranty can be transferred to me or not.  Any advise?

For now, v2.3 is only available to supporters who are willing to put up $10 or more, but if you’re willing to wait (and you trust the hype), you’ll be able to download it free on August 13th.

I just cannot wait.  I already supported ML when I saw the new release this noon.  I will try it ASAP after I arrive home later.  So excited!

I knew I should have waited  >:(
I've even seen it as low as 2800.
A canon authorized dealer were selling them not too long ago on ebay with the battery grip and memory card for 3200 and change SMH.

such a huge price drop in such short time. I really wish I would have waited.
WOW!  5D3 for 2.8K from authorized dealer.
3K is good for me already.  I actually just want to know if the warranty can be transferred if I buy a new 5D3 from CL.  2.8K surely is even better.  How can I find those kind good deals?

Some people are selling new 5D3 on craigslist in bay area about 3K.  It looks like a deal for me.  Does anyone has experiences buying camera from craigslist?  Any concern and Canon warranty issue?

Not a huge difference, though real world frames seem to say otherwise in some reviews. The main difference I can see here is the moire, where the D800 fails miserably. Personally, losing that bit of sharpness for less moire probably cancels out the difference. That and I don't have to invest in new lenses.
Interesting.  Just wonder how many people really care about the sharpness and the moire for this comparison.  As you mentioned, D800 is sharper and 5D3 is less moire.  However, I prefer D800's output here.

The Best Price Photo 5D III has the USA Warranty.

If bestpricephoto.com was Canon authorized dealer, I would jump in for 2900.  You don't really get warranty from Canon if you buy it from a non-authorized dealer.

If the price of the new entry level FF is below 2K, the price of 5D3 should drop to about 3K.  Actually I am very interested in the new entry level FF camera.  However, not much information about it yet.
And if the price of entry level FF would be around 2500$?
Keep using my 5D2.

I probably would have just purchased the 5D3 at release if it was 2999$. No problemo.
Same here.  3.5K is not a problem.  However, that's just not a right price for me.  I will keep using my 5D2 till the price of 5D3 drops to 3K.

What if it rises up after new entry level FF? :)

2000/-??????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Canon must be kidding.

Again it lost on
Nikon D600 24mp full frame under 1600usd.

We don't know if the price of D600 is really about 1.5K or not.  If so, the new FF camera should be about 1.5K as well.  Too early to talk about the price.  Anyway, I am glad to see Canon responses to Nikon's D600.
