soooo, you're switching from a 1dx to a point-and-shoot?
someone, please give me the 3 minutes back i spent on this thread --
How much slower? Is it possible to put a time or percentage against this?
I have to admit I was unaware of this issue. I want to get a 5D3 next year but I will absolutly be using it in low light flash situations, off camera lighting not an option. Is this a show stopper?
It's not a show stopper, but certainly something to be aware of if your work involves shooting with flash in very low light venues. The other significant slowdown factor with the 5D3 in very dark shooting environments is the non-illuminated AF points. So while hunting & waiting for AF, you've got to somehow keep track of your black focus point. In a situation where people are moving even slightly, the black AF points and the slow AF adds to the degradation of the spontaneity that is so vital in event photography.
But lets be clear. This scenario only kicks in when you're shooting in very low light locations. Just about everywhere else, the 5D3 AF is just fantastic.
Look! Basically it's almost always Murphy's Law. Either you wait in which case the price will not drop significantly and you may lose some nice photos in the meantime, or you get it now and suddenly the price drops! Your choice!!!
Alternatively, he can buy now and get something to go "click click" right away or wait but save money. A win-win, ain't it?
My swing at it. levels, curves, contrast, adjusted color, fixed tones and skin, a bit of dodging and burning. All and all about 2-3 min of work.
so a 400 f/4 probably won't be small or cheap ... but can't we get a 500 f/5.6 IS? the sigma superzooms that hit this focal length (150-500) aren't huge or hugely expensive. I'm sick of stuff that only goes out to 400mm. for your average consumer, you can get there with a 70-200 f/2.8 + 2x, a native 100-400, a 300 f/4 + 1.4x, the venerable 400 f/5.6 ... all of which puts you at roughly 400mm f/5.6. why can't we get something a little longer than that without having to spend $7k?
