I've taken some great shots with my 5d3 and a 70-200 2.8 Mk II.  you will find that you can crop quite a bit with the images from the 5d3 and still have excellent results.  a couple pics i posted here are at the link below.

Pretty sure that is a juvenile Mountain Bluebird.  I have a nesting pair of Eastern Bluebirds in my backyard, but haven't seen the juveniles yet.  They are very similar.

Lighting conditions can change as you are tracking planes.  To help compensate for this, I will set my 5d III manually as to shutter and aperture, then set the ISO to auto.  Seems to work well.

Does anyone know what time the press release will happen? It's 7:48am in Japan right now.  I'm assuming that is where the press conference/release will originate?

It's a little more expensive than I thougth.

Unlike most other electronics, cameras don't decrease in price and I never expect them to.  :(

Canon has trained you well... =)

They've trained all of us because they are still in business!

That's why a 7d Mk II is in the near future as well.

Or maybe this IS the replacement for both the 7D and the 60D.

That's always a possibility.  I hope not though, I think they need a higher level crop camera closer to the 5d Mk III in performance.

Ouch - that's more than a 7D + 18-135mm !

Retail will knock what ? $100-150 from that ?


From the specs and talk of the potential for significant IQ increases, it may be an overall better camera than the 7d. That's why a 7d Mk II is in the near future as well.  We'll find out soon, bring on the testing and sample images!

Will do.  I'll probably start with some flower macro shots, that is if the wind ever quits blowing where I'm at! Hasn't cooperated at all the last few days.

I am seriously considering the purchase of a CamRanger with the primary purpose for macro photography so I'm not crawling around on the ground so much (tough to do with rhuematoid arthritis sometimes). For those of you that have a CamRanger and have used it for macro shots, give me your thoughts on it (pros and cons).  My secondary use would be for some time lapse shots ( up to as many as 500 or so) using the intervalometer.  I've read some comments regarding a short battery life for time lapse work.   I'm having a tough time pulling the trigger for $300 unless its real worth it.

Here is a link to one of the small packs in a metal housing.  These are perfect size for in a case.  I used these in my pelican cases on a 10 day whitewater float trip through the Grand Canyon.
