Anyone who gets paid for their photography services. I've seen horrible pros and excellent non-pros, so take the title with a handful of salt.

Don't care about any bodies. 135mm f/1.8L IS and 14-24L. Then I'm done with equipment.

50mm first, 100 f/2 second then a wide angle of your choice.

I'm planning to replace my 580 EXII's with 600RT's because the 580's optical system didn't do 2nd curtain anyway. If I'm in serious need for 2nd curtain for a off-camera flash shoot, I'd just take my strobes.

I just cannot recommend the 1DS3. Its not cheap, Its not newer, Its IQ is too similiar to 5D's, Its slower, and well It was the pinnacle of its day. It is tough as nails being a 1D. I can recommend the 5D3 as being a worthy replacment of the 1Ds3.

If I we're you, Save the Dough for the 1Dx. It will allow you to photograph things that aren't possible on lower end bodies. Then, no overlap of capabilities of camera bodies.

Fantastic! It will probably be included in the March planned release of firmwares.

FYI, I found if you use 9-point Expansion AF w/ Assist Beam, It works great! Single point is still slow though. :/

I never believed the 5D3 was worth 3,500$ but I did score mine for 2499$.

As for its High ISO IQ, Its better than any crop camera canon makes. DXO even confirms this and my own usage agrees also.

Imaging Resource and DPReview confirm the opposite and publish the test photos and all test details for review (reproducibility, something DxO lacks). Should someone believe DxO or their lying eyes?

If we're going to talk experience, my experience, the experience of members at my photo club, and the experience of a friend with a rather successful wedding photography business all concur. Nobody who has ever claimed the opposite has ever been able to provide images to prove it. If you can you'll be the first.

Did you even look at the samples I posted in the other thread? 5Dc has better ISO performance than 7D in use.

I have no desire to post from DXO, as you can view this info yourself.

For reference, here is some more info on the 5Dc as an entry level FF camera.

I have both it and a 7D. My usage says the 7D is much better at high ISO.

I've had both a 7D and 5Dc. My usage says the 5Dc is much better at high ISO.

My PC does everything a Mac can do and does it cheaper, faster, better, and with no compatibility issues.

Hmm.....so, it runs Aperture 3, and Final Cut Pro X nicely and easily?<P>

On my mac, however...I can run all those OSX only apps, and with VMWare I can run windows and/or linux for anything that runs exclusively on those.<P>
Sure, you can run OSX in VMWare on your PC, but technically, it isn't legal to run OSX on non-mac hardware. <P>
Not that 'technically' ever really stands in my way on things of this nature, but I'm just saying....

Aperture 3? Don't care, have LR4.

Final Cut pro? Don't care, have Premiere pro or would Get AVID for serious work.

OSX? Eh, the only thing I might do with it is for Cocoa and old legacy stuff I have. I wouldn't pay $$$ for that.

Its all good, but I don't ever use my mac anymore. Also, Hows tethering going with the new release of mountain lion? I heard it was pretty bad. :|
