What sort of punishment are you expecting it to live through?

+1....16-35 III with IS would be nice
Oh, that's true. I can use the Ec-S with the 5d!
Thanks, BL. Very useful tips.
aj, to each his own. For my specific purpose, I need a cheaper full frame body to complement my 5DIII where I cannot take the latter, and where I cannot change lenses.
Also, thanks for sharing the information about shadow noise in the 5D.
I do understand one cannot get everything at once. I have to expect some trade-off for getting a FF camera for so cheap. I just need to make sure the trade-off is in the right areas. The AFMA is a bit of a worry though.
There are hardcore supporters of the idea that "full frame is always better. " I do not think so, and choose 70D without hesitation. Weather sealed, AFMA, AF far superior, more images per second, higher resolution, etc... I have not used original 5D, but some friends use and the noise in the shadows is very ugly. Any Rebel model currently has more like colored noise film, while the original 5D has horrible colored spots.
I am using the same as you and I just go on the first missfire, though I find the ST-E3 kills its two AA's before the 600's kill their four.
The only reason I have had a missfire from the 600's (apart from with the Youngnuo YN-E3-RT) has been down to battery level, a change of battery has sorted it out.
I'm looking to take my photography hobby to the next level, so to speak , so I'm thinking of buying me a tripod and a tripod head. I've done some research online, but I think I'm more confused now, than when I started thinking about tripods and heads. (I guess, that happens a lot). From my understanding, Manfrotto and Induro seem to be the best tripod brands, so I'm looking to get the above mentioned gear from either of these two. I'm more inclined, however, towards Induro products.
In so many words, what do you guys make of this?
