EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Thinking of downgrading my 5d3 system

The mk3 is not the problem, the problem is those heavy 2.8 zooms which the 70-200L weights about 4LBs.

That's one reason I've come to love small, light primes. 24L + 50 1.4 + 135L are fantastic to carry. If you want mobility and lens speed, try some small primes.

Not a solution for everything, unless you carry at least 2 bodies around. Again, not for family photos.

I've taken plenty of family photos with just a Minolta maxxum AF and a 50mm 1.8. Just takes a different approach.

How do you approach this type of situation, when you are 1.5ft away from your subject? No room to go back or forward: http://albums.phanfare.com/isolated/0TKGEcfb/1/5903138

Find a different approach.

You have everything covered in my book. Wide, normal and tele. If you want all three in a lens, only the 24-105L truly does that well for less $$$.

Was there any 10D users? I feel alone with saying how the 20D was the best thing since sliced bread.

86 oz for 24-70 2.8 + 70-200 2.8 zooms vs 56 oz for 24L + 50mm 1.4 + 135L

The speed gain vs weight & versatility. That almost two pounds shed in weight.

I've been wanting a 70-200II for awhile now and every time I pick one up I realize why I've been waiting so long. It's just heavy to lug around, white and 2000$.

Unless you do a lot of action photos, get the 70-200 but you will always have to lug it around. With the 135L, you just take a tiny little tele converter.

Sell it and save the cash for another MK3. That's how my 7D went.

A upper body workout might help. :|

The 1000th post earns the 1Dx marker, Even though I have no use for such a beastly camera.
