Has anybody tested these new caps with a 5D mkIII to see if there is still the light leak. I think Canon did a dirty on us and didn't fix the light leak in camera but just produced a "light leak proof" lens cap.  :P

Bathing ellie. Somewhere in Botswana. (was taken a couple years ago)

I already had one EX580 ii and I was looking at getting a second one. I am really glad that I found the Yongnuo kit. Instead of getting another 580, or even a 600 I got 3 YN622 flash triggers and a YN568 flash, AND saved myself $300. The YN622s so far have been very reliable and the YN568 is absolutely great especially for the price. I'm thinking of adding another 622 and 568 to my kit now. I never thought flash photography could be so much fun until I took my flash off my camera. I can really recommend the YN kits.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Thinking of downgrading my 5d3 system
« on: January 06, 2013, 05:29:16 AM »
My old kit was the 7D with 17-55 and then my wife got me the 5D3 with the 24-105. I also have a G12 as my "point & shoot" for things like dinner parties and other times I don't want to lug the SLR. Well since getting the 5D3 I never want to go back to the 7D af again. I also don't know exactly where my G12 is anymore. The 5D3 with either the 40mm pancake or my nifty fifty is my new point and shoot.

Don't get rid of the 5D3 you will always regret this. Take some of the other advice here, especially with regards to the telephoto end. Get yourself one of the smaller primes, they are not expensive and more versatile than you think.

Don't know what I did to deserve my wife but I would so do it again and again (and again)! I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have had with mine.  8)

I assume you mean the 5D!  ;)

Erm, no. Both are a lot of fun.  ;D

Happy holidays everybody!!

My wife came home last week with a wrapped pressie, handed it to me and said you better learn how to use this before we leave for India (we're in India at the moment for a friend's wedding). I had been lusting over the 5D mkIII since it came out but refrained from buying. I unwrapped the box and it was a brand new 5D3 kit.  ;D ;D ;D

B&H are already offering a $200 "instant discount" on the MAP prices. Crisis averted. Well, almost.

I think this will be the new FF kit lens. Probably even for the 5Diii. Everybody keeps saying that nobody would buy it as a stand alone lens but that's exactly the poiint. When last did you hear of somebody with a Rebel or xxD camera actually go and buy a 18-55 IS lens? That's just the kit lens. If you want something better you go and buy the 15-85 (24-105 for FF) or the 17-55 f2.8 (24-70 f2.8 for FF). this lens will be cheapish and it will be small and in every FF kit as standard.

Just my 2c worth.
