 Goose on a hot tin roof.



Great...I just bought the VF-3....it is in the mail, and they come out with a VF-4???


 Same here, but I'm happy with it none the less .

 The Carryspeed viewfinder I mentioned in an earlier post came today, I have to admit I'm pretty impressed .  It's a straightforward design and I had it on the camera in moments with no need for reading the directions. ( A preview of the video before it arrived was very helpful .) 
 This viewfinder does work with a battery grip although you'll have to make one tweak .
Using a phillips screwdriver to pull one screw and flipping the vertical adjustment bars gives it enough reach to fit quite nicely with the grip.

 The view is sharp and I must admit thanks to the adjustable diopter I no longer have to fish around my pockets looking for reading glasses to see live view.   
 By the way, kudos to the guy who started this thread , if I hadn't read this I wouldn't have researched looking for a deal nor found this little gem of an item .

 I ordered mine from the manufacturer direct , cost $9.00 more but free shipping.
Still waiting.

 I literally talked myself into buying one as I was posting the links.
Just finished the online purchase moments ago.   

 A follow up to my previous post.

Small | Large

 I kind of like this, it looks very sturdy. No adhesives , will fit multiple camera models and looks like you can adjust it to fit a 5D mkIII with or without a battery grip.
Best part it's only $130 bucks !
 I think I'm going to get one.

 Wouldn't it be something if after updating to the next firmware the Magic Lantern logo popped up on the screen .
 There'd be some real upgrades , that's for sure.

 The detail ( to me ) is incredible , The poor 7D is on it's way to collecting dust.

 Congratulations !
I did the same thing last week and am sure you'll be very pleased . The kit lens is very nice and has turned into my walk around lens .  Used the 17-40 on a 7D , it's to wide for general use on a FF but it's nice to suddenly have a superwide zoom on the 5D.

 The idea you have of upgrading to a L type telephoto lens is a good one, might as well take advantage of the higher resolution censor with better glass . You will without a doubt see the difference !

 By the way, I guess I've been so infatuated with the new Canon that I (almost) forgot to thank you all for the useful links and helpful information . I may have to pick your brains again in the future and hopefully will learn enough to pass it on to someone else .
 So, Thanks !

( Had to tap into my retirement fund to do so ).

Really? Why would you do this? It's bad enough that the government has started eyeing our 401Ks and 403Bs but you just gave them a few thousand dollars in taxes I suppose. And then there are many thousands of dollars that you forgo down the line.

I was hitting it already to take care of some other things and figured why not tap some extra and treat myself.
 Hell, I ain't no spring chicken anymore. Putting the kids threw college , keeping up with the day to day bills. Just want to have a little fun and splurge on myself ( only a little bit ) before i'm pushing up daisy's.

 In the mean time though it's only been a couple of days and I'm not regretting the investment one bit.  Slowly picking up on the differences between the 5D and the 7D.
Tried out the big zoom on the full moon tonight, not as much reach but better detail .
 ( I still need to do a couple of tweaks )  :)
First ones with the 70-200 and a 2X converter , second with a Sigma 50-500 and 2X converter .

First day out shooting FF. Here's some results .

 Now it's out to give it a go in a dark venue .

Hmm...tried to go to FB and look at them.

Do you have them available publicly? Not everyone has FB accounts (privacy issues with me)....
