Actually I have one and find your postings very interesting. I also would like to visit your photo web site.

Three posts from three brand new ID's that were created today within a span of under 15 minutes.
Nikon's D7000 is a terrific camera that sells for hundreds less.
I guess that's just the point: Is there a large enough market for the most expensive aps-c body on the block when in the tech department the ff 5d3 has outclassed it? The price tag of the xxd or Nikon might be more in line with the ef-s or dx lenses used for them.
Probably a ton of other posts like these here already, but I thought I'd ask specifically for my situation.
I currently have the following gear
I mainly enjoy shooting landscapes, buildings and night photography. I've only been serious shooting for about 6 months. I don't make money of my pictures as this is just a hobby. And moving to FF, in particular the 5dmk3, interests me for low light performance as the biggest issue i have is with my night shots and AF in low light.
- aluminum tripod
- 10-22mm EF-S
- 18-55mm EF-S
- 18-200mm EF-S
- 30mm 1.4L EF
- 50mm 1.4 EF
What I wanted to ask, would you recommend that i just get the 5dmk3, where I could only use the 35mm and 50mm. I'd be pretty limited by my glass, and after dropping $3500, it'd be a while before i could get more glass. Though eventually i'd like to get the 24-70mm mk2
Or would you recommend I spend more money on gear and glass to make the move to FF lens painful when it happens? That and i could work more on my shooting skills and get more experience.
If i picked up more gear, I'd be looking at
- ND filter
- 6xx Flash
- possibly a macro lens
Picking up the 5dmk3 would be a stretch financially, but doable, and the gear no sweat.
You might be better off getting the 5D MK II and the 24-105mm kit lens while selling your crop camera and lenses. A 17- 40mm L would be plenty wide and can be bought used for about $600, the same as your 10-22 would sell for.
I sold my 5D MK II to finance my 5D MK III. Its a nice camera, but so was the 5D MK II, I think you would be quite happy with it.
Thanks for posting ronmart, and ignore the trolls.
I personally do not notice any big difference under normal lighting. However, I have noticed better DR in difficult lighting, and, of course amazing ability to retain at least a usable amount of detail at ISO 25600.
I have posted numerous images with my 5D MK III that are in the forum. I'll be doing some AFMA of all my many lenses today with the beta version of FoCal Pro which now supports the 5D MK III
And here's Walter with Lulu the dog. Kinda grainy, at ISO 3200.
