Software & Accessories / Re: Nik Software worth it?

Worth it? OOOOOOH Yes would be the answer. All my B&W is via Silver Efex Pro 2.

Lenses / Re: 24 TS-E II or 135L

I own both, and love both, depends what you want, a landscape/architecture lens or a sharp prime useful for portraits?

And the 135mm f/2L is still going strong at 17 years.

That beautiful thing is 17 years old?  :o

Honestly... 17??

Cos I was an amateurish fool when I started out?

Popped your Canon full frame cherry!

EOS Bodies / Re: 1DX Replacement
« on: March 23, 2013, 01:05:33 PM »
No way the 1DX will be replaced that soon. Canon have to admit it is not a replacement for studio and landscape photographers, but really aimed at high speed action. Next high end body would probably be a high resolution sensor, although it does not make sense either, since the near medium format Nikon D800E is priced way less than what Canon would charge for a 1D body on release....

Nice lens, but no match for the TS-E II when in need of that focal length (landscapes and architecture)

It was not my intention of selling directly through CR and my OP is proof of that, just asking what other options I have. Sorry for the trouble.

A 1DX when I need the burst rate and the low light capabilities, a D800E for landscape and architecture.

You know you will do it anyway if the thought has been going round your head...  :P

EOS Bodies / Re: $2,800.00 budget

I would invest in better glass, and get a 1Ds Mark III second hand if possible.

EOS Bodies / 1Ds III
« on: March 20, 2013, 03:21:54 PM »
I would like to sell my 1Ds III to scrounge up some much needed cash (getting married... and that is expensive!!). eBay will not let me sell since my seller rating is too low apparently... and Amazon not getting any chance either.
Anyone can suggest how I could go about it? It is still a pretty good body from Canon and I do not want to let it gathering dust there in the closet...

I suggest waiting for the Big Stopper rather than going for the Hitech option. I also suggest looking around all the other retailers in your particular continent... I reside in Europe, most retailers all over were back-ordered, but you can usually find one who has 10 stop ND from Lee available from stock. Got one within 3 days from Ireland.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Crazy... go Nikon?
« on: March 20, 2013, 03:17:21 PM »
Enough with the flame wars already  :o
As the OP I never meant to be a Canon vs Nikon rant, just to assess the veracity of owning the best of both worlds and whether it made sense business wise.
All I got was that people stick to their system even if it shot them in the foot... repeatedly. Brand loyalty does not make sense.
