I agree with the other posters here. There is a reason the best zoom lenses have a limited range. If you want an 18-300 you can't be expecting great quality images, so why do you want a more expensive canon version. Sigma's build quality is on par with canon EF-S lenses(probably better honestly) but their AF is sometimes off on certain copies of a lens.  Just my $.02 the 15-85 is quite a nice EF-S lens, and adding a 70-300 would give you that extra reach for when you want it.

keep in mind that the 6d shots are softer

What? Where did you get that from?

I've never shot a 5D3 but the 6D shots are just as sharp as my 5D2 shots... why would there be a difference in sharpness between any of the full frame sensors?


actually the 5D MK2 has the highest spatial resolution of the three cameras.
a lot of reviews confirm this.

but you have to shoot testcharts to see it or pixelpeep pictures of the same motive to notice it.
yet it IS visible.

the reason is a marginal lower MP number of the 6D (but that is really marginal) another reason is the difference in the AA filter.

i guess the 6D has a stronger AA filter then the other two cameras.
if that´s the case it is a shame that there is so much moire in 6D videos.

anyway, not all FF sensors are equal... ;)

Im kind of a pixel peeper myself, but almost by accident. I am viewing my shots at 24" on a 1920x1200 monitor, and judging them. My wife wanted a 8.5x11 print of a tiger lilly I shot last summer, and on my PC I thought, ehh, its not real sharp but W/E and had a print of it made. at 8.5x11 in our hallway it looks super-sharp, and gets alot of comments. Maybe a 2' print in a restaurant on a wall, 1' from someones face it may look soft. SOOO many amazing shots have come from 12 MP 5d classics, and alot even cropped. Just a little point on pixel peeping I guess, Rant over haha

I had an older version of ML on my 60D that didnt do alot for still shooting, so I removed it, but it was quite a neat set-up. all menu's were normal, and there was a seperate menu system for the ML software. Im thinking about adding it again now that it has the advanced Av/Tv/M stuff.... that could be useful for me.

Side note: My 60d had the latest firmware version when I installed ML and I thought I bricked my 60D. A re-install of the latest canon firmware (same version I was already running from factory) fixed it. The M.L. website states this might happen. So I SUGGEST updating your camera to the latest firmware, even if you are already running that version.

Other than that my ML worked great, no issues.

Ive seen some reviews stating the 6D has very bad moire in video and pattern shots. Perhaps a very limited AA filter? wonder if anyone has tested this yet? 6D perhaps a good landscape/studio cam?

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D AF and Focal Plane issues by recomposing
« on: January 14, 2013, 10:12:44 PM »
I wonder if some of the lenses that have strong "field curvature" would cancel out the focus-recompose teqnique.   if your focal plane was shaped like a    "  (  "    for example, tilting the camera would all be on same focal plane. Sorry If i lost you, im sure a few people will see my point.

Pricewatch Deals / Re: Canon 6D - Meike grip on ebay for under $40
« on: January 09, 2013, 07:45:06 PM »
I have a meike for my 60D and it seemed ok, except for the reviews saying it shorted out batteries, I checked the internal wiring and it was all fin on mine. However sometimes the thumb wheel on the back of my 60d would stop working with it attached, untill I turned the exposure wheel. No biggee. But shooting a friends wedding, I was against a wall in a kinda cramped area, and was holding the camera a little weird, and gripping the meike grip firlmly, and it all of a sudden, powered my camera down and the batt light was all that was on the top LCD, and it wouldnt tunr on/back off. In about 30 second I had the grip removed and the batt and door back on body only, and I didnt miss a critical shot, but it pissed me off. It did the same thing with my 300mm lens a couple times. I assume the cheap plastic flexes too much when gripping tightly, and loses  contact

Lenses / Re: 2003 vs 2013 17-40/4L

I would bet that the lens is near-identical. Especially the glass. Designing glass takes a ton of time and money, and won't be tweaked, unless a new lens is released. If the early versions had any known electronic or mechanical problems, they would have fixed it in the later ones, Other than that they will be near-Identical. I am kind of eye-balling a 17-40 Myself, I have wanted one for a while

Lenses / Re: A few words on Adorama's customer service
« on: January 07, 2013, 08:52:45 PM »
It is actually quite a reassurance to see someone working for adorama is either A) passionate enough about photography to be on this site, or B) cares enough about their work to look around the sight.

Or perhaps both!  I have had good luck with Adorama, Only problem I ever had was ordering something for a minolta by accident :-P I got click happy I guess

When you get it back it will once again be a totally reliable camera, and you will be glad you sent it in.

I had an old 3mp Digital Elph go bad, out of warranty. The sensor had some kind of problem with it's attachment or something. Canon could not repair it because it was about three years old, but because it was a manufacturing defect, they sent me a refurb 10mp SD770 IS to replace it. That little camera is great.

I can figure that made up for the following out-of-warranty repair of my 20D which cost me a couple of hundred dollars for only a cracked top LCD Screen cover. (Banged it against the gearshift in my truck).  It came back all checked out, cleaned, and good as new.

So send it for service and enjoy it when it comes back in good, reliable shape.

Trying to shoot yourself doing roll-backs? Haha, but 200 bucks for top LCD ouch... I thought repairs were mroe reasonable than that. I was thinking a shutter replacement would be about 250, not a chunk of plastic for 200. Yikes

I've fooled around and touched/cleaned the mirror on my rebel film camera, but havn't even considered touching my 60d. I can crack walnuts with my bare-hands, and give a mean hand-shake, but I stay out of fine areas of my camera. I have cleaned my sensor before, with the special swab and it worked well however. I work in a busy shop with tons of metal/dirt/dust in the air and actually showered and changed into freshly washed clothes not used for work before cleaning my camera, even though it screwed up my daily routine haha. I have issues, I know :-P

It could always be worse... http://iphotonews.blogspot.com/2010/03/world-famous.html

Holy cow!!!  The fabled full-frame mirrorless and 500mm TS-E lens!  I KNEW it wasn't a myth!!!
LOL! That is funny!

I heard that model had a light-leak issue

if you can gets your hands on a old used fild rebel (mine was 5$ with a 35-80 lens) they could really see how it works up close, and play with shutter speeds and watch the curtain, and play with the aperature opening. I wouldnt let them play with my main body I know that :-P
