Lenses / Re: Zoom vs Primes?

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.  ::)

Lenses / Re: Which lenses will match a 40+MP camera?

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

The 135L is one of those lenses.

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.

Lenses / Re: 50 1.4 on 5d3 anyone?
« on: December 11, 2012, 01:56:40 PM »
The 50mm 1.4 is a cheap crappy lens. Invest in the 35mm 1.4 L instead.

Its not that terrible.  ::) I've used the 50mm 1.4 Professionally for sometime before getting the 50L.

Its a good lens for the $$$.

60D ergos. Errr....

Still a newer camera than the 5D2 though.
