If you had to choose between the 5D3 and the 1DsIII, seeing as the 1DsIII second hand is close to the 5D Mark III price point, what would be the best option. The scenario involves me needing a second body for architecture and landscape work, for the sports and wildlife I am quite content with the 1DX.
I am new here and have my first question
Is the 5D Mark iii a considerable enough upgrade from the 5D Mark ii?
Considering purchasing a 5D Mark iii and currently I own the 5D Mark ii. So basically I have the money and plenty of great lenses so I would like to upgrade to the 5D Mark iii but I wondering if it is worth the money and is it worth upgrading. I have my opinoins but I would like to hear others on this topic. Going from a 5D Mark ii to a 5D Mark iii will I really be gaining that much? And lastly is it worth it?
Thank you everyone
Neuro. You did not answer my question, do you understand - and read again what I asked
Underexposing, head room , bring in high lights more than 4 stops above middle grey
If you understand this we take lesson 2
Certainly, I understand. But no one is asking for theoretical 'lessons'. Rather, both me and privatebydesign are asking for actual examples of images 'ruined' by the FPN of the 5DII, and some idea of the frequency at which the low ISO FPN renders real-world images unusable.
How come the 5D2 IQ was impeccable before the D800? I find it still impeccable today. :|it was not when it was released
it is not much better after all the firmware updates
it made a big splash being the first CHEAP full-frame and those who wanted or needed that were so enthused with this new toy they paid little regard to its IQ shortcomings because it offered IQ benefits and features previously unavailable.
Endlessly trumpeting on that basis suckered me in to buying one; my most regrettable Canon purchase.
not for lack of due diligence, but for lack of honest and clear information about its weaknesses, which became clear enough after I used it for a while. .. and after others began posted about its less than ideal low ISO FPN issues.
If you still find it meets your needs you either lucked out with a good one or you don't mind crushing your blacks a few more levels than some of us.
This lens is exactly how I pronounced it at release. DOA.
@RLPhoto: hey, no need to repeat that in every 20-70 f/4 IS review/comparison thread
DOA or not, let's wait for the sale figure.
Speaking of AA filters, put that on the list of things for Canon to improve, i.e. optionally get rid of...
