EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Anyone still using a 20D?
« on: January 03, 2013, 10:00:56 PM »
I had a couple of 20D's back in the day. It was a good camera and still is. 8MP is good enough for a lot of things. It most definitely has it's limitations compared to todays cameras. Mostly being ISO performance.

If I drop something I send it to Canon Repair. I can't take chances on something being wrong with it.

Just skip to the best and get a Gitzo. I've owned several Bogen/Manfrotto monopods and tripods over the years. The Manfrotto's are good but tend to fall apart after a few years. The Gitzo keeps on going.

Lenses / Re: 5D3 + 135mm F2

I just got one last week. I have only used it on the 1Dx and haven't put it on the 5D3 yet. Love it on the 1Dx so far.

None of my IS lenses including my 300/2.8L IS II make any audible noise with the IS on. Of course, it would't surprise me if some people on this board are listening to their IS lenses with a stethoscope.

Lenses / Re: Buying used lens
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:31:51 PM »
Lately I have bought most everything new. Years ago, I bought a 300/2.8 Nikon lens and a Nikon 1D ($5000 new at the time) on eBay. Both of the sellers had a high number of feedback ratings and were 98-99% positive ratings. I felt like if this many other people had good things to say then I could trust the seller. Both times the equipment was in perfect condition and the sale went off without a hitch.

Technical Support / Re: Repairing Scratches - 5D MKIII
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:25:30 PM »
Back in 2006 I was on a job in the Northern Territory of Australia and I scratched up the top cover of one of my 1D2's pretty bad. It was just cosmetic and didn't affect the operation or IQ of the camera at all. A couple of months later I sent it to CPS Repair for something else and they replaced the scratched up top cover for free. I guess Canon didn't want a scratched up camera out there.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Is it hard not to buy 3rd party lenses now?
« on: December 26, 2012, 12:09:34 PM »
EVERY time I have bought a non-Canon (or non-Nikon back in my Nikon days) lens I have regretted it.  When I switched to Canon back in 2004 I got talked into buying Sigma lenses. I bought 7 Sigma lenses and regretted every one of them.

You might try squaretrade.com. I have used them for cell phone warranties before and they were great.

I had a Sigma 120-300. Not the current version, but the one before. I broke my vow to buy only Canon lenses. I wish I hadn't. I HATED that lens. It was sooooo slow at autofocusing. I eBay'ed it to some guy in South Africa and bought the Canon 300/2.8 IS II. I love the Canon. Maybe I'm just too picky about my glass, but I have regretted buying anything except Canon. That was my policy back in the days when I shot Nikons too.

Lenses / Re: 1Dx or lenses
« on: November 22, 2012, 08:29:28 PM »
I have both the 1Dx and the 5D3. The biggest difference between them in my opinion is speed. If you do sports stuff, get the 1Dx. If not, 5D3 is a great camera.

If it is a problem with the card, SanDisk is great about replacing them. I have owned about 50 SanDisk cards since 1999 and have had 2 of them go bad. SanDisk replaced them without question.
