I will  buy the $1999 FF body. It's like a 5d mkiii and 7d fused into a 60d/7d body style. Will take amazing photos and will perform greatly. Not a fan of plastic but i happen to not be going into extreme weather and i take very good care of my gear. So it sounds perfect as a second body to my mkiii =-)

EOS Bodies / Why is everyone calling the mk3 sensor the same as mk2?

They are different sensors. Similar yes. Same no. Please educate me. They both have read noise, possibly some banding, but they are not the same. 21.1MP vs 22.3MP alone means different =-)

Get the 7D now and enjoy shooting now. You will love the camera forever

Ahh, I see you are on the stage..well that certainly helps quite a bit.  here's an example of where I was seated..dealing with numerous seated heads and my distaste for red light as shown in this pic..the other shots previously posted was the opportunity where I had to stand near the men's room a few times to nab the prior shots.  I don't much like this shot but posted here to offer a feel for the cub's dynamics and seating arrangements..yes I am aware the shutter speed was too slow, etc..

That is a tough situation. I had a lot of freedom and it was a huge stage. Sorry to be off topic I notice in your description that you have the mp-e65. How do you like it? I've been thinking about it and don't really know much about it. Haven't done my research yet.

I think these are on the warm side and should be rebalanced to tungsten


Well, I would disagree as far as getting lost in the background.  Background (as the word implies) is not as important as the subject matter (foreground).

The background is not really important. What is important is your subject being separate from the background to be able to distinguish your subject properly. Otherwise you just have a head and two arms floating in the blackness.

I did bring a WhiBal Pro white balance 18% gray card for White correction so what you see is matched with that card. (note EXIF is listed "custom" for white balance.)

WB gray cards can produce off images when using custom WB. so that would explain why it looks  on the cooler side. Custom WB just means AWB based on the gray card shot but is applied to all other images with custom WB. This leaves room for error on the cameras side.

There are more shots on my site in this album if you want to check them out. they have fewer flares and mics in peoples faces. I just posted these since they seem to have some more character. http://www.stockhammedia.com/photo/concert-photography-album-1/

And i'm really not trying to bash your shots and i more than understand that there are some tight situations where you have very little control. That usually means no-so-great shots. i would recommend doing some post to bring out the torsos of your subjects and maybe warm them up just a bit. and i am on a brand new 27" iMac which is know for it's incredible image quality and color rendition. so I'm pretty sure i'm seeing these images properly.

I answered Other, as I think it is just a great all-around camera.
The IQ is terrific, the focus fast and accurate and it handles everything I have put to it so far extremely well.

I don't think there is really any other camera that can compare to it for a "compact" DSLR, IMHO, that is so good at virtually anything you'd want a camera to do.

I agree with your points completely

I use the Photomatix plugin for Aperture.

do you know if there is a difference in the way it handles images in aperture vs standalone? do you do 3 shot brackets?

Actually, yes I'm one of those guys naming something not on the official poll, I love the Multi-Exposure and HDR features on the 5D Mark III.  I used them heavily last night doing night street photography.  You can shoot a ME mode of a stop light with all 6 bulbs lit up in one photo if you shoot 4 shots at 90 degree angle to the light: (Green/Red, Yellow/Red, Red/Green, Red/Yellow) and into one final image.  I didn't have time to get the exposure correct for each color, but I'm going back tomorrow to perfect it.

Thanks =-) sweet shot btw. good idea. i just added multiple exposure and HDR to the poll =-)
