EOS Bodies / Re: 5D3 vs 1DsIII
« on: January 15, 2013, 04:01:12 PM »
Good information, you probably have a point that paying that amount of money for a 5 year old body released in 2007 does not really make sense... but waiting for a high MP count to ever appear from Canon will take quite a while...!

EOS Bodies / 5D3 vs 1DsIII
« on: January 14, 2013, 04:02:13 PM »
If you had to choose between the 5D3 and the 1DsIII, seeing as the 1DsIII second hand is close to the 5D Mark III price point, what would be the best option. The scenario involves me needing a second body for architecture and landscape work, for the sports and wildlife I am quite content with the 1DX.

Canon have an inflated price structure, as much as I love my 1DX and 400 mm prime, no way they cost an arm, a foot and a whole torso...

Great shots mate.

I'd stop fretting about your equipment, learn to use it properly and get on with shooting. You've got a great kit. Use your surplus cash to take a holiday with your young family.


Besides seconding him, and neuro who says one can never have enough glass, I would say you have an excellent camera body and good glass as it is, just keep learning and improving.

Never saw the need for a tilting head while shooting football, waterpolo or performances.

Lenses / Re: Should I get 1.4x III or 2.0xIII extender - please help.
« on: November 11, 2012, 01:19:59 PM »
I have experience with the 2x III on the 70-200 mm II and the 400 mm f2.8 IS I, not too happy with IQ wide open at f5.6, and in most situations you cannot stop down to f8 to improve IQ, so would not be a combo to use often.

Do not expect any price drops any time soon!

Sell you mine? It is a beautiful lens if you can cope with the manual focus that is.

Lenses / Re: 135mm or 50mm...
« on: October 31, 2012, 12:40:30 PM »
I bought a second hand 135 mm and I love it, I sometimes wonder whether the 50 mm would be a better prospect for low light performance and walkabout lens, but the AF/backfocus issues always put me off.

Less numbers, more real life performance. Will keep my 1DX tight and let the numbers go to hell. Been through over 10 bodies, Nikon, Canon you name it over all the years, this is by far the best performing body I put my fingers on.
