What do you guys want to see? Just tell me and I'll spend the next few days doing it. I have the 1D X, 5D3, and 1D4. I can shoot whatever.

Having just picked up a 1Dx, I'm also considering selling my 5D Mark III and picking up a 1Ds III as my backup... Seems like the bottom has dropped out of the 1Ds III market. Still on the fence about it. The main things holding me back are the 5D III's silent shutter and the smaller form factor....
Curious as to what makes the 85 more magical than any other prime used at lg aperatures?

I can say that I mounted the 85L II, left the menu screen open for a while, took a few shots, and reviewed some images, all without an Err80. Note that what I did not do was to enable the orientation-sensitive AF point function. I already know that that breaks AFMA, and am starting to suspect it may be involved with this issue as well.
Cool. What film are you all choosing?
I was all set to buy the 5DIII from B&H for $3350, but it's back to $3500 now for some reason. Amazon is back to $3500 now too. What gives? I'm definitely not buying it without the warranty. Anybody know another place to get it for around the $3350 mark that is authorized by Canon?
If you only have had your camera for a year, Canon will do it for free. My 1Ds Mark III just went in 2 weeks ago, still for free, for a sensor cleaning. Doing it yourself with a puffer usually doesn't work very well.I am sending mine in to have the light leak issue fixed on my 5D3 - it is only four months old - are you saying I could ask for a free sensor cleaning too?
There are 3 modes to the custom function so please consult the handbook to see what may work for you.
All this talk of EOS 3's might just see me cracking open a cheeky wee roll of XP2 this weekend.
@bdunbar79QuoteCorrect. NEITHER the 1V nor the EOS-3 has AF point-linked spot metering.
I don't know about the 1V, but the EOS-3 does.
Custom function 13.QuoteFocusing Point-Linked Spot Metering.
With Custom Function CF-13, you can limit the manually- and eye-selectable focusing points to only 11 of the 45. This makes focusing point selection faster.
Spot metering (about 2.4% of the viewfinder area) is also linked to the eye-selected or manually-selected focusing point.
&QuoteThe selectable focusing points are limited to 11.
This makes focusing point selection faster and links spot metering to the focusing point you select.
This setting is effective for spotlighted subjects on-stage, etc., when you want to maintain the framing of the subject.

I'm not a chairman of the board of a major Japanese corporation, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night. That qualifies me as much as anyone else here to comment on this stuff.+1e6
Unless you are a significant stock-holder (like a pension / superannuation fund), or a senior executive of Canon, it would be hard to provide a qualified opinion of what the qualities of individuals in leadership roles of Canon should be.
I have posted before, that if you are unhappy with Canon's offerings, you should not whinge about them, rather, do not buy them.
Vote with you wallet! It's by far the most effective management and strategy tool in the market.
Just what I'm doing, Canon don't have an up to date semi-pro 1.6 crop camera so I'll stick with what I have.
Canon needs a 7d MK II, not every one wants a full frame jobbie.
