Nope, don't see it as being an issue.  The night shots I've done I've just taken an exposure through the VF without having to look at the top LCD.

If you are doing your tests indoors on a normal floor you will see different results.  The reason is any vibration in the floor impacts your camera.  I found that I couldn't run the test on the main floor of my house, I had to move to the garage with its concrete floor.  Concrete basement would have also worked.  I also use a double halogen work light to keep the target well lit.

When trying to test my 100-400 lens there was enough of a breeze outside to slightly vibrate the tripod, again that was enough to throw the test off (or more to the point the graph is all over the place making it hard to determine the right adjustment).

EOS Bodies / Re: Upgrade from my T3i Need Advice!!

So I just sold my T3i and want to upgrade my body. I shoot primarily video, but am venturing into sports photography as well and want a perfect camera for both. Should I get the 7D? 5D Mark II? or wait and hope Canon announces a sub $2000 Full Frame dslr with the speed of the 7D?  :-\ :-\ :)

Assuming by speed you mean frames per second.... I can't imagine Canon would ever release a sub $2000 full frame dslr with the speed of the 7D when the 5DIII doesn't have that speed and costs over $3000.

If it were me I'd either save a bit longer and get the 5DIII or just wait a few months and see what happens for announcements in September.

There are several circular polarizers that fit right into the Lee foundation kit without an additional ring.  I personally have the Singh-Ray LB Warming Circular Polarizer, but Lee also makes one, as do a few other companies.  The Lee CP is square so you are limited to 90 degree changes, the Singh-Ray is round (and yet fits into the Lee Foundation Kit) giving you the same capabilities as a standard screw in CP.

HDR processed through Photomatix 4.2 using the Raw files, 7 bracketed shots from -4 to +4.  I didn't do any tweaking in Photomatix, just took one of the presets ("Photography" if I remember right).  Shot with a 24-70, 24mm ISO 100.  I also took the same shot with the in-camera HDR mode which produced a shot that was significantly greener.  I'm usually pretty happy with how the 5D3 HDR mode performs, in this case Photomatix gave me a more realistic shot.

Any sharpness comparisons between 5DIII raws with the new ACR and DPP?  I found the beta versions of ACR weren't giving me the sharpness that I could get with DPP.

Manual mode for everything but long exposures when I use bulb.

Haven't set up C1-C3 yet, but those will be based on manual mode too.

Would this holster work while out hiking?  I've been looking at it for that use.

I got on the wait list for a 5DIII the week before they were announced and got mine on March 22nd, the first day they were available.

A buddy of mine decided to get one on Thursday this week, not on a wait list.  We phoned two local stores, one had only the kits so that was a no go as he already has the 24-105.  The other store had both kits and bodies only.  So bottom line is we were two for two on stores having them in stock and he bought his the same day he started looking.

There doesn't seem to be an issue finding 5DIII's here.
