EOS Bodies / Re: Moving to 6D from 5DII

That won't be much of an upgrade over the 5D2, Save alittle more for a 5D3.

If it can out-resolve the 7D, It should Out-resolve the 46Mp camera.

The 135L is one of those lenses.
This is not a fair test.  All lenses have better resolution in the center area of the image.  APS-C (7D etc) usese this area only. In FF the full field is being used, and the resolution for off enter area will drop. Some might even drop drastically.

It Should outresolve the hypothetical 46mp sensor.

The 135L has outresolved pretty much any camera I've used, so it would be a great candidate for this non-existent sensor.

A Good Price might sway me, BigValueInc happened to be one who did.  8)

Seriously though, A 24-70 + 70-200 + 50L + 2x5D3's + 2x580 EX II's is a crap load of weight for weddings or events. The 70-200 is 4 pounds and the 135L is a third of that weight.

I prefer just three small, fast primes with two bodies and the occasional flash.

I'd wait for the 7DII, and continue to use your current equipment. The 7D is a great cam for your uses but its already a long-toothed tiger.

Patience is a virtue, Impatience is an expensive commodity and If you wait a bit longer, You can get the 7DII or the 7D for less $$$. Look at the MK3 prices, They're ridiculous now!

The 5D3 is the camera of the year, but just not for $3500.  ::)

Not Remotely interested in a repackaged 5D2, which was a repackaged 20D with a FF sensor.

I'll buy one ASAP, but will it replace my 50L? Only time will tell.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: digital camera as light meter
« on: December 11, 2012, 03:11:32 PM »
Yes, you can use a digital camera to meter your scene for Film. Just be sure to use equivalent F-stops from MF to 35mm to get the DOF you need. It works quite well.

Even on my Expensive L Primes, I use the Top of the line B&W MRC Nano XS-Pro UV filters. Its simply superb.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Am I the only one without 5D3 Problems?
« on: December 11, 2012, 02:50:45 PM »
The 5D3 is the first camera that fully does everything I'd ever want from a camera. That's why I ditched my 7D & 5Dc when I realized I no longer need two seperate bodies for different subject matter.

The only issues are the Assist beam issue, Blinking AF Fix and F/8 AF capability but these are so slight compared to anything before the 5D3.

Lenses / Re: Canon 70-200 F/2.8 IS II vs. Tamron 70-200 F/2.8 VC
« on: December 11, 2012, 01:59:19 PM »
TDP just put their ISO 12233 images up. Looks like the Tamron (at least their copy) is inferior to the Canon Mark II where it counts at 200mm & f/2.8:
Bummer, I was hoping to get 200mm at 2.8 with IS/VC at a bargain. If I needed 200mm at f/2.8 for mission-critical stuff and had the moneyI'd probably have to go for the Canon despite its insanely high price.  I think I'll just get the superb Canon 70-200/4L IS used on eBay for $700 or so...

The Canon is the clear choice.
