I went from 5Dc  ------->   5D3.

I never had dust problems with the classic and the Mk3 I received was perfectly clean to me. I haven't see any dust yet.

EOS Bodies / Re: where to sell canon gear, I'm moving to Nikon

Fredmiranda & Craigslist is good but If you want to flip gear quickly, Evilbay does it well.

Nikon and Canon are both good. As long as its not the S0nY camp, They seem to be in a world of there own. ;D

If canon releases this in a 1D body. It will flop big time.

If canon releases this in a 5D body, it will need to stack up to the D800.

If it surpasses or just evenly matches the D800 in RAW IQ. Alot of 5d3 users will be quite angry at canon. (Me Included)

This can't turn out well. :-\

Thanks to everyone who posted about upgrading to a 1DS 3 from my 5D2, I had to exchange it as I had a shutter button Problem, Now I have a brand new 5D3 and I have to say, its a bloody fine camera, literally everything you will ever need, I will miss the 1D body, but that's for another time, thanks again, I can now enjoy all the 5D3 posts,

here is a pic from today's street photography class for you, my first picture with the camera,

thanks all x


Thats good to hear. I snagged my 5D3 for 3,099 On evil bay. I just couldn't see the worth in it for the full retail price but just waited patiently until I saw the deal of the century. Buy it Now. 8)

It really is a fine camera.

The 135L is stunning. Love it on both crop and FF. Use it on crop for reach, then swap it on the 5D for distance candids.

I shoot all primes on two bodies. The 135L is one of the keys in my trio of primes. 8)

Lenses / Re: No AF: Broken flexfoil in 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
« on: August 04, 2012, 08:37:58 PM »
Yesterday the AF on my 18-55 IS MkI suddenly became erratic and then stopped working. A quick search on the net shows this to be a common problem because the flexfoil that gives the focus ring position eventually breaks due to poor design. Disassembly showed this indeed to be the case on my copy.

I would like to replace the 18-55 with a Mk II version. Filter & hood I can then fit on the new one. Does anybody know if Canon fixed this problem in the new release of this lens?

Note: The 18-55 I use with my 400D when I want to travel with a light & 'expendable' kit. Not really inclined to use a more expensive lens for this purpose :)

Dont know, but Evil bay has plenty of 18-55mm's if you want them.

10-22mm + 5Dc.

10-22mm for landscapes. 50mm 1.8 + 5Dc for portraits. Done. 8)

This is great but a 1D4 could give similar results.

The 1Dx is for low-light, high speed sequences. Thats where the 1D4 falls apart.

Lenses / Re: 70-200 2.8 II vs. 85mm 1.2 II - general opinion

The 85mm is for melting the background away when you don't have the working room for the 70-200mm.

When you at 2.8 you have 36 points with 5.6 accuracy, 20 points with 4.0 accuracy and 5 points with 2.8 accuracy, right? And if you try to shoot at any point except 5 in center you get in roulette at close distances.

What is "standard AF points" in your mind?

Standard AF points check contrast Vertically. F/5.6 Active

Crosstype AF points check Contrast Horizontally and Vertically. F/4 Active

Double Crosstype AF points check Contrast Horizontally,Vertically, and Diagonally. F/2.8 Active

Here is a diagram if you dont fully understand.

"New 61-Point High Density Reticular AF including 41 cross-type AF points with f/4.0 lens support including 5 dual diagonal AF points (sensitive to f/2.8)" according the Canon USA. ....AND.... "New 45-point Area AF sensor including 39 cross-type AF points with f/2.8 support" for 1d4.

Yes. This means at F/4 you'll have 41 standard crosstype points. The double crosstype points aren't fully activated but still functioning.

When your at f/2.8, you get 36 standard Crosstype AF points and the 5 center points become Double crosstype, an added bonus.

With the 1DX, you can have F/4 and still have 41 Crosstype points.

With the 1D4, you'll need a F/2.8 lens to have full crosstype support.

Have you ever used the 61 Point AF system? Because its brilliant. 8)

I meant precision of 2.8 have only 5 points. Isn`t it? Only 5 from 61. In 1d4 was 39 from 45.

The 1D4 has 39 Standard Cross-type points. The 1DX has 5 double crosstype plus 36 standard crosstype points plus 20 normal points. Its better that the 1D4 in AF points.

Lenses / Re: Lee filters
« on: August 03, 2012, 01:06:49 PM »
I wanted LEE filters but they're so difficult to obtain in the US. I just forgot about them and never tried again.

I anyone knows of dealers in the US who has a large amount of LEE filters, PLEASE POST!?!

I just ordered the Lee foundation kit, Big Stopper and a WA adapter from B&H.  They seem to have a fair amount of grads and stuff too.

Sweet. They're always out of stock. Just ordered my foundation Kit. 8)
