i did take a 70-200 which i didnt use very much but carried everywhere

the other lens I took which i used alot was the 50mm f1.4
On what body? With a apsc body but unsure if it will be too wide on ff.

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

Year

              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 decision...to 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 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Show-or-hide-the-Recycle-Bin

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.

I have a desktop with a nice 24" zr series monitor.

I also have an ipad, 15" macbook pro retina (running windows 8 only), work laptop ( thinkpad w530 1080p led)

I want to be able to proof/ light edit raw files without going into the basement on occasion and vacations.

A: Considering downgrading mbpret 15" to 13" or asus zenbook prime 13" (1080p)
B: selling mbpret15 putting cash in bank till next lens purchase or better solution comes out
C: trying to use my ipad for trips to view (not) download my photo's
D: any other suggestions ?...

The 100-400 is not as sharp as the bare 70-200 II - but then, very few zoom lenses are.  My 100-400 is slightly sharper than my 70-200 II + 2xIII.  If you didn't already have the 70-200 II, the 100-400 would be a good choice (if you found the one you borrowed soft, it might be a copy issue or need AFMA).  But you'd do fine with the 2xIII on the 70-200 II.

Ok so you would recommend the 2x over the 1.4 for wildlife? Just curious. That sounds more economical. I still want to get a 35mml or sigma 35 1.4 later this year and that would be easier to swallow. Do you by chance have an iq sample with/wo the 2.0 you could post?

Recently I have been interested in taking shots of birds but when you stop at 200mm on ff. your limited. Any suggestions?

I grabbed a 100-400 from a friend. I don't think its that great of a lens. Just seems like my 70-200 2.8 iiis way sharper. Anyway considering 1.4 ext, 2.0 ext, 70-300l or open to other suggestions. Beyond this use I don't see much use for that range with the exception of my kids in the summer running around. One other thought was a crop body with my kit even though the iq will not be as nice. Here is an example of what I'm going after with lots of cropping. The last one was with the 100-400l at 400mm
