it appears to me that you are in the process of learning photography and that your focus has been on getting familiar with the tools. that is great and it sounds like you are starting to see what the 5d3 has to offer over previous models. it is very important to understand how to use your tools in order to get better at photography.
but that will only take you so far....
at a certain point you will maximize your understanding of how your camera and lenses work. it is at this point that separates the truly great professionals from the serious amateurs. understanding and identifying great light is the next step. once you start to understand what lighting conditions provide for really fantastic photography you will start to see that your gear is not the limiting factor. more often than not the greatest limiting factor is timing and opportunity. the light will dictate what you can and cannot do as well as if there is a truly great photograph to be had.
i only wanted to point that out because i got a sense from your posts that you were expecting the 5D3 to provide a significant improvement in your images through its technology alone. this is rarely the case as the best light will provide great photos regardless of the camera you are using (assuming there are capable hands operating that camera).
i hope you continue to make strides and enjoy your new camera! i do encourage you to start thinking more about different qualities of light and what settings are required to take fullest advantage of that light.
Thanks for the advice. I plan on learning more and more about light, flash, composition, etc. i have made great strides in the short two years I have had a dslr. I do realize that phtography lessons are needed but i figured they woukd be better practiced on this than having to learn methods and apply them to a different body later. I will still play with this a week or so longer and decide if the investment is worth it now or in a year or so when I have gained more skill. Did you think the photo's turned out ok?
