This weekend should be exciting. We're heading to my daughter's dive meet and I've taken the plunge and borrowed a 5D3 for the weekend. Coming from a T1i, this camera is a little intimidating, but I do like the larger size - my hand actually fits on it without a battery grip. I know - it's the small things that amaze me. I had intentionally held off from working with a full frame due to the potential G.A.S. I know I would experience. With my new CPS membership - I couldn't resist trying one out for this event.Stick with the 70-200 and you will be fine...
It's been great to compare the two cameras against each other. I live in a city that doesn't have a camera store anymore, and the other electronics stores pretty much are useless when it comes to higher end products, so this is a treat for me. I now have a better understanding of what I've been reading about on this forum. For the short time I've had with this camera, I've been amazed at how shallow the depth of field can be using my 85 1.8!
I was hoping to get the camera earlier to get more practice with it, but looks like I'll have to do some on-the-job-training as the meet starts tomorrow. It will take some getting used to, but I'm looking forward to seeing what this camera and my 70-200 can do I do have a 70-300 non-L; should I try this combination at all? Seems silly to take to zooms, but wondered if anyone here has used the 70-300 non L on this camera and what you thought.
