Yeah i was going thru some recent photo's and the 5d is great. I think i will take that advice and get a prime just not sure of the sigma 35mm or canon 50mm1.2l seems like 35mm could prove useful also wondering if I should get the 16-35. Would that serve a purpose up close of family portraits?

Nice shots. If you can swing it I would find a good used 70-200 f4is. Great lens. The 2.8 is better but of course then theres the cost.

If it were me, I'd stick with 5D3.  1DX and 5D3 got the same AF (almost).  As for low light performance, 1DX is just a little bit better.  I suggest getting 1DX only if more than 6fps performance is crucial to you.  Your macbook is also important since it is so good to edit raw files using mac.  If I were you, I'd like a good TS-E lens instead of the 35 though.  :)

Sorry if this sounds stupid but what would be the application for a ts-e?

I have always wanted the 1d x but am unsure the extra $3k is worth it for me. The pro's for me are better iso in low light and af point metering. Cons size and could that money get me a nice 35 mm prime and maybe a 1.4iii teleconverter and keep my macbook. Just stuck on the decision. Any suggestions?

Also this is for july so do you think I should see what else Canon drops by then? Maybe a 70d with revamped 18-300 would be nice for the trip. Just wishful thinking.

Take your 70-200, and get either a 16-35 or a 17-40. Cover the 40 to 70 with a few steps either way.

If I were there taking pictures of you and family, I'd have the 17-40 on most of the time. Up close and personal with the people, and the backgrounds are all there and in decent focus. Five years from now you'll look back at the pictures, see yourselves AND get a good look at where you were.

If you want a fast prime, stay home and do the blurred-out portraits there!

Enjoy the time with the family!

Ok so never had a uwa before. So if I get close it will be easier to grab more of the character shots up close?

Your question is sort of vague.  Are you taking the two zooms you mentioned?  Or do you want to leave those two and bring one of the ones you mentioned as options?  Or are you bringing both zooms and want one more lens?

I would say, just bring a 24-105.  It's good enough in the quality department and gives you both decent wide angle and a little telephoto.  My second choice would be the 24-70 f4 IS and my third the 30mm 1.4. (This is assuming you are leaving the two zooms you own at home, which is what I think you are saying.)

I would bring the zooms leaving the 70-200 in the room for a few days. Just looking for a few lighter gear days so was thinking 24-70 f4 is, 35mm prime like the f2 is or other suggestions. I am all about getting mickey and my twins in focus so wide apertures are not going to help me with that i usually sit 5.6-10 when shooting outdoors to get them in focus.

I have a 5d iii with 24-70 ii, 70-200 2.8 ii

I am going to disney and am considering a prime just not sure which one. I also miss having is in the shorter focal range.

Thinking of
35mm f2 is
35mm sigma 1.4 sounds heavy so may not be travel friendly
24-70 f4 is

Any other thoughts are welcomed

Currently they are in windows

              Date taken folders

I tried the iphoto thing years ago and it ruined years of phot's so very hesitant to do something that will not leave them in their original repository on my server. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Besides a custom site are there any suggestions to start a portfolio of my pics?

Thanks for the suggestions. I am sorry if  was not clear but I will never run osx. I only used the mac pro ret for its screen. If I was to consider the mac air I would get the asus zenbook prime 13.3 ips. It has a 100% rgb screen. Just hoping for something cheaper since I use it a few times a year tops.

I'm glad you keeping your gear ;)

Thanks I guess asking for advice but never following is useless. I decided to take everyone's advice and just keep it.

I think you made a right keep your gear. You have Canon top gear in your bag. Many shooters outer are dying to have your gear :P

I'm not sure if this will make you feel better or not, I just spent $2800 on a tiny Sony RX1. This will be my travel camera to China & Hong Kong. I love night scenses in Hong Kong, so much colors to capture. I was thinking about the up coming Fuji x100s, but I'm not sure about the crop sensor for night time shooting.  At the end, I ordered a RX1. Can't wait........
Sounds cool keep me postes on the results.

Try this

Also get an external cf reader. They are like $10. Much better process.

For media recovery try remo ($49) works well. You will need that card to show up in a cf reader though.
