Lenses / Re: Best lense for bird shots
« on: July 24, 2012, 02:30:54 PM »
"The 7D + 100-400mm is an excellent combination for shooting birds.  Personally, I chose the 100-400 over the 400/5.6 for the IS (even the 2 stops really helps with perched birds) and the shorter length (when retracted) which makes it easier to transport."

I use the same combo and have gotten great results with BIF.  The push/pull is easy to use with practice.  I haven't  tried the 400/5.6.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Lovin' my 5d Mark III

No flash allowed!  ISO 12,800 with 5D Mark III and NR set to 50 in Adobe Camera RAW

Very nice.  Thats a lot of DoF for F4. What lens was it?

Yeah, I'm curious too.  It's a great shot.

EOS Bodies / Re: New Upgraders (to FF) - what is your experience
« on: July 20, 2012, 01:09:48 PM »
My first DSLR was a Canon Rebel XS, and I eventually upgraded to a T2i. I was in the same boat as you, debating whether or not it was worth spending the extra money for a full-frame camera. Now that I've made the jump to full-frame, do I think it was worth it? In one word: ABSOLUTELY!

 I still have a crop-sensor body for some work (7D), but I use it rarely because I love the full frame advantage. The superior low-light performance and increased shallowness of DOF are added perks.

Full frame IS expensive, but in my opinion, it's well worth it.

The 5d3 is my third camera and I just love it.  It is expensive but the rewards are worth it.  I was using my 7d for bird shots but now have almost stopped using it since the 5d3 can get the same shot with a sharper image with cropping.  The auto focus is great as well.

That's a risky shot!  Now that's a photographer.  Ready to take it for the picture.

Take your other cameras as reference and make some sample pictures.

Yes, ditto on that.
