An efficient light weight lighting kit is more valuable than an expensive heavy lens that you will rarely use.

I picked up three 600EX-RTs and the STE-3 transmitter. They work great. Totally worth the money. I don't miss my 580EX II, Lumpro flashes, Cybersyncs with synch cable hell at all.

Lighting / Do 600EX-RT not work with Cybersyncs?

I plugged one in to my new 600EX-RT flash but can't seem to trigger it. Is there a certain mode I have to be work? It works fine on my old 580EXII.

The non-IS is supposedly sharper. Get the IS version if you have the arms of a body builder with the shaky hands of an old person.

This is why I don't bother with most 3rd party lenses except Zeiss lenses.

Such an overrated lens!  ;D

It's great no doubt, but I have to pay 3650 USD to get one, so I simply have to live vicariously through the people who own it ::)

Just start saving up. I sold my Mark I on Craig's List for 1200 so the Mark II only ended up costing me 1k.

I love primes as the next person but having to change them all the time is annoying. Sometimes causing you to miss shots and interrupt the flow of your shoot.

Buy all three seriously.

I did the same thing and sold my Mark I. So I only had to pay $1200 for it  8) I'm loving the prime quality sharpness. It was totally worth the money. I don't care if it doesn't have IS. To this day I never had a use for it.

What would be awesome would be to have service centers at each of these stores.

Just pick up the non-IS version. It goes for $1200 right now. It's also arguably sharper than the II.

I'm glad Canon doesn't. I want all my lenses to work on all my bodies.

No thanks, I'll stick to my Olympus OMD E-M5.

Some of these comparisons and smart a$$ comments about depreciation are ridiculous.  I don't think the OP should have started an entire thread dedicated to this and been so dramatic about it, but I can sympathize with his feelings on the 5D3 and 5D3 only.  You all act like the drop is completely normal but name one other piece of Canon gear that dropped that much that fast?

Of course depreciation is to be expected, but I think the 5D3's drop was different.   The price of the 5D Mark II dropped maybe $200 the first 2 YEARS it was out.  And if the 5D3 price pattern is the norm then why is the 1DX not under $5k now?  It's the same price it was at it's release.

Not to mention there was a poll before the Mark III was shipped asking about when it would drop below $3000 and the earliest answers were around Xmas and even those people got laughed at.  Nowhere did anyone say that it would drop to $2500 in 7 months or anywhere close to that.  And why would they think that it would? 

I don't think anyone here is stupid enough to believe their electronics won't ever depreciate, but most aren't complaining about the depreciation itself, just how quickly it happened.  And I think a lot of the people being pricks about it are just trying to scorn the early adopters to make themselves feel better about waiting. 

I don't care either way, I paid almost $3800 for mine and still think it's a great camera.  But if you had told me I could save $1600 if I buy a refurb in 7 months, or $800 waiting 5 months, I would have considered waiting.  But now I know for the future, lesson learned.

You got ripped off by both Canon an Uncle Sam. A little shopping around at launch or waiting a few years would have helped you save some money  ;D
