The 220ex was almost the perfect compact flash. AF-assist, high speed sync, decent power and fair recycle times. It just didn't have a bounce feature but is better than the 270ex IMO. To bounce, I just bring a cheapo TTL cable.

I like the 220ex and their super cheap on evil bay.

A lens that inspires? Err, I think photographers use a lens to get what they inspired in their brains. :-X

The 550D/60D/7D files all look the same. There is tons of pics available to see these at

Just a suggestion, If i had to do my setup all over again. I'd get a 5Dc before I'd buy a lower-end crop body. Its files are stunning.

All these are technically fine.

The problem is the poses are un-flattering and lacks a final vision.

Just my 2 cents.

I prefer the 50L over the 35L. It's rendering is much nicer to my tastes. As for sharpness, The 50L is the sharpest 50mm you can get from F1.2-2.8.

 If you want wide and fast, might as well look into the 24L II. 35mm is too close to 50mm to justify it over the wider, crazier 24L II.

5D3+50L - F/1.2 - ISO3200 - 1/1000th

This is the way I look at it. If you are able to make money with the 5D MKIII then you should be happy. If you believe you can make more money using a higher pixel camera you could either move to Nikon or wait for Canon to release their high MP camera. The choices are still there and I love the fact the choices are still there. When the D700 did not have video and people wanted video they moved to the 5D. When the D700 guys wanted just video and not high MP they really did not get what they wanted. The point I am making is we do not control what marketing decisions these pick companies make. What I know is these guys cannot ever satisfy every customer.  The only thing I can control is to go out the and shoot the best images I can using the best equipment that works for my budget and business. You look at the photographer galleries at the London Olympics and they still seem to be dominated by Canon gear. These guys make money from their trade. And if Canon has kept them happy then I guess someone in their marketing has got it right. JMHO.

I could make money with a d30 if I wanted too. I prefer the usability of newer tech but that's another conversation for a different thread.

Canon used to innovate and deliver the best they could in the 1Ds days. Now it seems they've been listening too much to accountants than photographers in not doing there very best. Just my 2 cents.

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


You bought the best Canon camera that satisfied your needs and budget that was available at that point in time.

Seriously, people who think like this about digital cameras need a reality check.

It's not that the 5d3 is a good camera. It's the best camera I've ever shot with.

It's that canon could have done better but chose not to. Instead recycled tech to make more profits and then releases another camera we really wanted with a sensor superior to the 5d3 for around the same monies.

Digital cameras rot, an unfortunate truth but a reality. If this new camera is equally priced to the 5D3 with equal IQ to the d800, expect 5D3 prices to plummet.

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.

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. :-\
