What, the 70-200L II IS lens/5D Mark III or the 300 f/2.8L IS/5D Mark III?

Then there is the ISO comparison on a color chart in the same review. The noise level looks SAME to ME at high ISO.
IMO, the difference becomes apparent at ISO 3200, and the 1D X becomes progressively better than the 5DIII at ISO 6400 and beyond.
I'm almost on the same boat. What other camera has such proved image quality and top notch performance?.
The 5D3 and the D800? Though the 5D3 is only marginally better at best, and the D800 is nigh unhandholdable with its massive resolution... I have a 7D for the times I need to machine gun down my subject, so with a 5D2 I've got all my bases covered for the same price as a 5D3... And I'll have a backup body to boot.
Sigma IQ is going to be less than the 40 or 50 Canon lenses in all likelihood.
Maybe, but it would still make sense for a crop sensor if one is trying to mimic the 50mm FOV. The Canon 40 and 50 might be too long for the OP on his 1000D. What is the best that Canon has around 30mm that is as fast and as affordable?
Thhe 1DX has so many advantages in terms of ergonomy and reliability i decided amlong time ago i won't use anything else than the 1 series.
So who's the winner? I'm interested in a camera for street portrait photography. What would be the best thing to use to get great skin tones in Canon lineup? Does the 1Ds Mk III remain the best thing for this?
The 1Ds3 is superior ISO 50-200. Above 200 the 5D3 is better.
So I went to DXO to check the difference between 5D III and 1Ds III (yes, I heard lot of negative stuff about this web-site) and here what I saw in the results for low ISO measurements:
Dynamic Range: 5D Mark III loses (~2% difference at ISO 100)
SNR: 5D Mark III wins (~3.6% difference at ISO 100)
Tonal Range: 5D Mark III wins (~0.3% difference at ISO 100)
Color Sensitivity: 5D Mark III loses (~0.4% difference at ISO 100)
Looking at those numbers I don't clearly understand why 1Ds Mark III is so superior. Does it handles uncontrolled light better? Or is it about self-convincing? (i.e. a camera that costs 8 grand makes better images as a matter of fact).
Or am I missing something?
Up to iso200
- total lack of noise
- strong colours
- no banding in the shadows
I had the 24-70. I wasn't crazy about it so i sold it. Too much distortion, vignetting, and not quite sharp enough. Oh, and 2.8 is too slow for me. I love my 1.4 lenses!
I won't use my 1D X at weddings believe it or not; I'll be taking my two 5D Mark III's because it can perform at a high enough ISO for me and has more resolution.
So it's only because of resolution? Do you crop much?In fact, I don't know how they could have possibly upgraded the 5D Mark II any more than they did. I wish it had the color rendition of the 1Ds III at low ISO value. Maybe I'm just wishing there were a 1Ds Mark IV
Any chance 1Dx has similar color rendition to 1Ds III?
I am just wondering how many people out there can afford and are willing to spend 6800 on a camera? I am not asking if they are using it for a certain purpose just how man people actually purchase 1 Series bodies. I considered getting one before but the longer I wait the more I think that the 5D Mark III might be for me.
