EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D 3 sales
« on: April 11, 2013, 12:40:28 PM »
I got my 5D3's for 3000$ and 2499$. This was little over 6 months into the release and I'm glad I waited for a good deal. The 5D3 is nearly the perfect camera for me, and currently see possibly never upgrading.

If you jump to FF, You'll have to sell the EFS glass. That is an extra expense that I don't think you need yet.

I think a 7D might give you what you want, it's limit is ISO 3200 with a push to 6400 ISO in my usage. If you downscale the files to 12mp, it will make decent prints. I used my rebel XSI from ISO 100-400 because 800 and 1600 were horrible but the 7D was like night and day.

8FPS and Great AF will allow you to photo stuff only a 5D3 or 1D series cam would be able to do better. keep that in mind.

Lenses / Re: Which Lens ... 24-70 II or primes?

After shooting sub-f/2.8 for so long, I don't think I could live without my primes but I could live without my zooms. It's a strange predicament, as most shooters have it the other way around.

The 24L II has a ridiculous amount of coma at the edges when shooting 1.4. You'll have to stop down anyway to prevent this.

Nice work. I always tend to do one or two shots that are really unique for my clients. Those tend to require more prep, but are well worth it.

HSS could kill the ambient light or more speedlite. Shooting mid-day is begging for a Studio strobe for raw output.

17-40L is the best deal for a landscape lens that is kinda GP. Just buy a 70-200 F4L + 50mm and your done.

For the large modifiers I use atleast 300w/s. A pair of AB800s should do a lot.

Why complain about DR any longer? Jeez, it like when people asked me why shoot slide film? It doesn't have enough DR is what they'd complain about but I loved my velvia 50.

Just to buy a nikon art_d. I thought for a second there that this thread wouldn't degrade again into another DR thread.

EOS Bodies / Re: 6D Autofocus not impressive

Every point you've made, I've already discussed. I really don't feel posting anymore would make a difference.

Yes, It's 1800$. I must have viewed an old page.

Not bad, but I can find mk2s locally for 1200$. Still A bad value.

The 6D is not a bad value. As a matter of fact, the 5D2 is the bad value... allow me to explain:

If you care about high-ISO noise performance, then the 6D is an incredible value at $1800 because it provides the same high-ISO performance as a $2500* 5D3 or $6000 1DX.

If you don't care about high-ISO noise performance, a used 5D2 is a bad value because it costs $1200 and has crappy autofocus whereas a used 7D can be had for $900 and has superior autofocus.

*Please do not say that the 5D3 is easily available for $2375 or whatever refurbished. That price is only when you buy direct from Canon, and Canon adds sales tax and shipping which drives the price closer to or over $2500.

I disagree, don't discount the MK3 sales price when the 6D sales price is 1800$. The 6D also has he equally crappy AF as the 5D2. Fell free to read my previous posts.

Try AF expansion. Avoid single point AF in extremely low light and Its worked good for me.

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon 5D MK3 or 6D Replacements... when?
« on: April 04, 2013, 08:47:01 AM »
The 5D3 is not limiting me in anyway. I can print huge, it's fast, it's accurate, it's feels great to operate. It could indeed be my camera for the next 10 years if canon fixes minor issues with firmware.
