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

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?

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.

I see you also skipped the 85L II, Is that because the 135L is so good?

I owned the 85 but a little too slow for my tastes and I do think the 135 is devine... Stealthy perfect for the street work that I do.

It indeed is a slow mammoth.  ;D

5D3, because it won't limit you later on and you may find your 7D on ebay of you like the 5D3 alot.

Primes have been my choice for years, but I've warmed up to zooms a little more lately. I could purchase a set of good primes for the cost of one Pro-zoom. IE: 24mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4, & 100 F/2.

For street work, Primes have always been the choice for that field. Small, Fast, & Discreet.

I've been considering a 24-70 + 70-200 2.8 Set of zooms for awhile now but its the weight that continues to put me off on those purchases.
