Macro / Re: Some nature Macro

I think these are good for handheld im getting similar results with my flektogon 35mm 2.8. My best advice is just to shoot many photos of the subject :P Blur is very easy to achieve sadly. Id still wish i had the 100mm 2.8 L lens cuz IS will be handy for handheld.
For things on the ground just carry around a big plastic bag (120litre or such) and put it on the ground so u can lay on it when u want to. Saves u from getting dirty and is really really cheap :P
You can also get some kind of mini tripod and have it always attached to your camera. Not hard to carry but they can be quite pricey. Or just take the cheap alternative again and carry around the famous beanbag with u! Yes its just a bag with beans inside but it stabilizes well :P
Get an old small pillow of yours and fill it with beans! There you go :D

samples i shot handheld with told lens (klick for 100%):

Timmy the  8-15 is a fisheye-zoom, and there's really no way of putting a filter in front of the lens.

Just use duct tape and cardboard to build some kind of "cage" around the lens front and then duct tape a filter to it. Or build some (acrylic)glass cage and put ur camera inside if u wanna go real serious :D

Lenses / Re: Canon 100mm macro IS vs non-IS - any further input?

IQ is nearly the same while the L somewhat looks like it got 2% better IQ. If you can live without IS just get the cheaper one.

Try joghurt becher with different colors, plastic bags with different colors....just anything u can find. U dont necessarily have to spend money for a diffusor.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon 5D Mark iii + 50 1.4 ii?

Unfortunately the focus screens on the 5D Mark III are not replaceable.

Seriously? But 6D can do it? So silly since i think 5d mk3 has more "pro users" who would want to change the focus screen.

All canon 50mm lenses are good. Even with the 50mm 1.8 and Mk3 you would have a really nice combo. At f/5.6 the 50mm 1.8ii is one of the sharpest lenses. I dont think think there is anything better you could buy instead of your f/1.4 50mm at this point for the same cash.
Like i always say...get cheap m42 lenses with an adapter and manual focus screen for ur 5d mk3 if u really depend on having different focal lengths. 135mm 2.8 m42 lenses arent expensive for example.
Oh but im not sure if they work on FF since i use them on APS-C. Well whatever u have a really nice combo now! I wish i had the 1.4 instead of 1.8, I think it lets double the amount of light in hehe.

Just a quick one from today's Mansfield St. Peter's game against South Central:

Good example of "how not to block"  ;D

If i wanna print out jpgs with some Kodak (or else) instant printers u can find in store should i change the JPG colorspace to AdobeRGB first? Or is it nonsense since these instant printer machines arent that good anyway?

Shows how little the marketplace cares about the camera used.

Cause it doesnt matter as long as ur camera is not vintage old. For good impressions you can always go boy broken 1DX or Hasselblad props. Just say its your "2nd body just in case"  8)

I am one of those people who has to be one of the first to buy a new product.  My rebel still works well.  I just wanted to upgrade and introduce myself to the world of full frame.  No regrets.  I could never have waited until summer.  Just a sickness I have.  ;D

Its not a sickness, you are just too fearful that you will miss something if u buy late :P

Canon is just more expensive, cant help it. Or you could get a Nikon as 2nd body. Best of both worlds.

well the gap is widening quite a lot in 2012.  :-[

Just get a Nikon as 2nd body. Plus u can use Nikon lenses on your Canon camera too with a cheap adapter :D
Or just get 5d mark 2 as 2nd body. Its not a bad camera at all and fits in ur price range i think.
