Now that you have made the jump, you can look forward to years of fun and enjoyment from your 5d III.

It's worth it

I've had great experiences with Adorama books. Check 'em out.


Around here, local Kodak dealership provide a photo book at a very reasonable cost.

Personally, I have my portfolio on my iPad that can be kept up to date at all times. Great when meaning clients at their homes or businesses.

As a rule of thumb, the more post from you higher the camera body assigned to your status. From memory, 7d is about 300+ posts, 6d after about 450 posts etc. 1Dx after 1000 :)

Some of the experienced guys have thousands of posts and may have a more accurate idea ;)

Sorry for or loss.

5d III or a 6d paired with 70-200 2.8IS II is a great combo. As mentioned before, if you do not do sports shooting get the 6d - enjoy.


Pricewatch Deals / Re: Need help to determine this deal !!
« on: February 28, 2013, 05:40:08 AM »

when you get the same price from a respectable dealer i would strongly advise you to buy it there. Those accessories listed are crap and no way worth it taking any risk. In my opinion it's no use buying a Pro camera with a pro lens for >$3000 and then using worthless junk as tripot, flash, (slow/unreliable) memory card etc.

If you want a tripod - get a quality tripot, if you want flash - get a quality canon flash. It may seem expensive to invest another $1000 in accessories but in the end it will be WAY cheaper since you will not have to buy twice. And don't forget to think about the environment too!


Well said. Pay a little extra and get your gear from a reputable dealer - better value for you buck in the long run and peace of mind too.

Superb. My personal favorite is the 2nd one - you have really captured the moment, it's emotion, the effort on the faces! Well done :)

Have a look at your meta data to determine which focal lengths you shoot most of the time as it will help you decide. (LR is very good for this purpose)

Personally, if I was coming from a 550d to FF 6D, I'd take the 24-105L. It a superb walk around lens, it's wide enough at 24 and fairly long at other end. Ofcourse build quality is really nice too.

I used to complement mine with a 70-200 f4 non IS and found the whole set up nice and lightweight with excellent results.

You may end up with that dreaded inflection/illness that can only be caught by buying into L series lenses  ;)

Have fun

Thanks for the input! I agree that a lens that heavy is going to make getting around considerably more difficult. At times, I wished I just threw the 40mm pancake on and left the lenses and tripod at my campsite (locked up of course). I have not had the chance to use the 24-105L, but from what it sounds like, it makes a great landscape lens. Would you recommend bringing that lens instead of various primes in that focal range?

I find 24-105L to be great for landscape - just take a couple of filters and a sturdy tripod.
