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.

Black Rapid RS-Sport and two Opteka hand grips which I really enjoy.

Nice shots.  Always nice to see the countryside and the local fauna.

That is just a great picture.  Well done.

I'd say 80% manual and the balance Tv for bif.  Got have that shutter speed consistent because those birds don't wait for you.

I dunno but the even though wide open the zeiss looks sharper in these comparisons

Looking back towards where I had come from, I liked the line of the path and the two trees:

You call those things trees?   ;D  Your little valley is wonderful.  What a great place to hike. 

Thanks Wickidwombat for the link to the Zeiss lens.  That is appreciated and will be helpful for decisions.

Hmmm....... can't believe this thread is still going but hey what the heck.  There is good information here and while I am enjoying the 5d3 as it is, I'm getting interested in trying the grip.  I have large hands and it would be interesting to have more to latch on to.  I'd like to get another lens for my video work but the grip would be nice for the straight photography aspect.  Decisions, decisions.

I got the Manfrotto 055XPROB Pro tripod and the Manfrotto 701HDV Pro Fluid head and had great success with both.  I don't have any comparative experience with others.  The tripod is heavy.

They absolutely are, after a year of shooting with L glass I used some Zeiss glass on the last shoot I did and I don't think I can go back to Canon for video now.  I got the 21, 50, and 100 but am going to pick up the 25 f/2, 35 f/2, and 85 1.4 once I sell my Canon glass. 

This is the kind of information I'm looking for. I've seen all kinds of websites touting this Zeiss lens or that but I don't want to drop that kind of money without some "consumer" feedback on them.

I saw this review in dpreview and have been looking for a zeiss lens for video, hence my interest:

For the growing number of photographers and videographers using DSLR’s for movie making, the Distagon T* 2/35 ZE is one of four prime lenses making a core set, joining the Distagon T* 2/28 ZE, Planar T* 1.4/50 ZE and Planar T* 1.4/85 ZE. These lenses are well suited for HD video applications due not only to their exceptional image quality, but for the smooth focus and long focus rotations.

Have you had an opportunity to try any video with it yet?  Looks very tempting.

For some reason, I'm hungry and what time is lunch?
