Canon CPS is sending me this lens in 2 weeks to play with for a little while. I will post photos once I'm done with the lens for you guys...

That make sense to "line up" the background blur with the angle of the board--I may have to try that.
More of my concern is the "ghosting" around the kid herself which was a different step than the background blur. Without any sort of effect/blur it didn't look right, so I feel like what I have is an improvement over nothing, but it still feels a bit ackward.
Well, looks like she's effortlessly gliding along on ice. Based on her very relaxed look, no prob.....
So great shoot, no fix needed
"Is any company going to release a budget model of their product that has more and better features than their flagship? Not likely. So, by logic, that puts the 5D MkIII after a IDs MkIV."
Erm well that's exactly what Canon did with the 5D MkII released just after the 1Ds MkIII. The 5D MkII has a better LCD display and a sensor with better microlenses, many believe that the 5D MkII has better IQ as a result.
But that makes too much logical sense for CEO's and big wigs at Canon (or any other company for that matter) to go by... What they care about is market share/money coming in (profits)/and reputation. The 5d is a better seller and will sell more than the 1d's and will have a higher return on investment hence the profit and market share portions of the formula... The 1d's are all about prestige and reputation... I dont think Canon at all sits back, in this economy and says (this is older so we will replace this first)... it's about what will give us the biggest volume of sales and is more profitable... Hence why rebels are upgraded yearly and pro cameras not..
Agreed - but Canon can point to current sales figures for the 5DII that are still quite high. On Amazon.com, the 5DII is the best selling full frame dSLR, and the 19th best-selling dSLR on their top-100 list (next highest FF is the Nikon D700 at #30). Gene_can_warble frequently begs us to stop buying 5DII's so Canon will release a 5DIII, and while I don't think that Canon has the 5DIII wrapped up with a bow and ready to ship tomorrow, he's right that sales of the 5DII are still strong - perhaps strong enough to deflate the urgency of releasing a 5DIII.
There is no way the 5D3 will be as delayed as end of 2012â€¦
Now, that statement smells to me as coming from some poor soul longing for a 5DIII.
I have never bought into the idea that Canon will release a 5DIII before a 1DsIV. The latter is older, more in need of an upgrade, and will likely be released first. If (a big IF) we se an announcement for a 1DsIV coming out soon, that puts the 1Ds line on a 4-year replacement, so if that gap trickles down to the 5D line, late 2012 makes perfect sense.
Mr Canon & Co did (and still do) their best to keep the semi-pro users away from vid cams with changeable lenses. And now can produce with a 500 Euro-Cam Ã¡ la 600D (or even 1100D) much better movies than with a video cam that cost ten times as much.While I do hear that many users have sworn off Canon camcorders for the time being, saying that DSLRs make much better movies is kind of ridiculous. These are for entirely different kinds of applications - camcorders have quiet and continuous focus and DSLRs don't. It's ENG versus what Canon has been treating as a nifty toy that may or may not be acceptable for some controlled shooting situations.
