EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Ordered the 5d3

I was just at a dealer the other day and he said that Canon has stopped shipments.  A fix is in the works.

Sounds like a good plan. An additional fast prime could be a nice option as well, as long as the 24-70 II is not available yet the 50 1.2L should be a good choice and will always be.

I know there are a few guys that just have primes.  The only reason I'm able to go this route right now is because I'm selling some other gear. ;)  The 85 1.2 is supposed to be pretty sweet also.

I haven't seen the specs on the 24-70II, maybe IS?

What do you guys think, go for the 5D mk3 kit and get the 24-105, or the body with the 70-200 2.8II and maybe the 24-70II when it comes out?  Also you can use the 1.4x on the 70-200.  I think the latter will cover most of the range.  Sometime down the road a wide too.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D MKIII vs 1Ds MKIII

I still don't see how the 1Dx is an "upgrade" from the previous top shelf pro model.

I feel that the 1D4 is better value for money for sports/wildlife, 5DIII better as a general purpose body

There will be a few people that need the extra fps and better low light of the 1DX

So what do you think, Canon coming out with a high MP camera?  Just like the 1DsIII when it was king of the hill for res.  Canon has been ahead up to now and nothing was said until the 800 showed up with 36MP, lol.

I was so tempted the other day, almost went for a 1DsIII...and under 10k clicks.  But going for the 5D3. ;)

Good thread Tom.  I'm in the same dilema.  I also use a 40D and was going to upgrade to the 5DII, but hesitated because of the AF.  Now that the 5DIII is out, it almost seemed a no-brainer until I seen some used 1DsIII's at a good price.  There's something about a 1 series, but since I want video also, I'm leaning towards the 5DIII.  Hmmm, I could still live with a MKII and spend the extra on glass. ;)

I would choose between the 5DIII and the 1Ds3. The 1Ds3 blows away the 5dII particularly with the AF which is up to pro level sports (think 1D3).

The 40D and the 1Ds3 is the same technology except of course the 1Ds3 gives a much superior IQ.

The 5DIII and the 1DS3 give about the same IQ and about the same mps

Personally I would, now, get the 5DIII unless you had a need for the series 1 features. Both bodies are very good and you will get excellent pictures from both.

The 5DIII really scores in low light - the 1Ds3 is great to iso 1600 and OK to 3200, and that is that.

Exactly, plus video is a big bonus for me.
