Why is the AF system will be better than the 1DX/5D3 even a choice?  I can't take this poll seriously anymore.  :) :)

:-) And why not better? :)

Because I already blew a bunch of money on a 1DX and a 5D3  :P

I'm sure it's the charger.

Lenses / Re: 50mm lens. I Need advice!!

Thanks for all the comments and advices guys!!

I think I'm leaning towards the Sigma now. But I really want the f/1.2 50L too!! just not sure if its the right investment right now since its my first 50mm and first "aftermarket" lens.

The reason I choose the 50mm focal length as my first lens is because I like shooting street photography and I shoot quite a bit at that focal length.

If you're going Canon, you'll be much, much less disappointed with the 1.4 lens.  I NEVER miss with the 1.4, but the 1.2L is just too hit and miss.  I don't know why, but it is.

If he's only going to be using it for landscapes at f/8-f/11, then buying the 16-35L II lens will be a very, very disappointing purchase over the 17-40L he already has.

You have to call Canon Services, meaning, "We don't know what the hell's wrong, but we'll send you a new one."

EOS Bodies / Re: EOS 1DX vs. EOS 5D MARK III for Weddings,
« on: August 24, 2012, 09:38:35 AM »
1DX or 5D III, and why?

Depends on type of shooting.

Better metering (color, exposure, etc.), reliability, responsivness -> 1D X.
Less heavy, silent shutter, good overall performance -> 5D Mark III.
+1

Put another way:
Wedding to photograph: 5D3
Runaway Bride: 1DX

 :P

(too tempting to pass up)

+1

Pompo, how long do all of the lights flash at once? Mine did when I slid the battery on, but it quit, and the first light began blinking and the battery began charging.  I gave it about 10 seconds is all.

Yeah it only took me about 1.5 hours.  Let me look at mine and try to figure out what is going on with yours.

Brian,

At f/8 to f/11?  There is no difference.  Do not buy the 16-35L for landscapes over your current 17-40L.  There is no difference really, in IQ.  If you were considering something like the 24L, then yeah, it might be worth it, but the zooms are equal at those apertures and you'll be disappointed in the lack of improvement in IQ if you buy it.

Yea I don't think this camera is going to happen.  If it does...someone in Marketing should get fired for giving out an upgrade to the 7D...

Correct.
