Love the Pink Honda shot.

If your camera is not shooting right straight out of the box, go straight back to the dealer.  Let them see and try it, but if no problem can be found and fixed, ask for a return.  If it did not work from the beginning, they are obligated to take it back, or exchange it.  (Warrantee of merchantability) If they won't, contact your credit card company (hopefully you paid with a credit card) and open a dispute.

Physical appearance of the camera.  All control work.  Pop a memory cad it not it and shoot some photos. Examine those photos at 100%.

$1300 is a great price, if it's in good shape.  i sold my 3 year old 160K actuation 5D III for $1650.

24-105mm f4 IS is the best first lens choice.

Mine is on the way, shipped yesterday.  Unfortunately I ordered 2 day shipping so will get it Monday :(.  I am outside CONUS, so overnight was an additional $75. 

B&H is not shipping my pre-order, and people are reporting banding and mush?  My Mellow is getting seriously Harshed.

It is really frustrating to find B&H at least a few days behind neighborhood camera stores.  They still have my pre-order because I live in Puerto Rico, and shipping from the small guys is $$$.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D III AEB still limited to 3?
« on: March 21, 2012, 11:42:13 AM »
Does anyone know if you have more flexibility setting the points the AEB are taken at? For example, with 7D you can do -1, 0, +1, or -2, 0 +2.
Will the 5D let you do -2, -1, 0, +1.33 or other combinations?

I hope so.  The 5D II and 5D I let you do that.  :)  The limitation on the 5D II was you could only shoot 3 shots, and those shots could vary only by 2 stops.  So -3,0+3 was not possible.  You could however shoot -1+1,+3, which when added to -2,0+2, gave you a nice 6 photo bracket.

It sounds like the 5DIII now allows 3,5, or 7 shots in AEB, and the 2 stop limitation is also gone.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5DMIII vs 7D for birding
« on: March 21, 2012, 08:31:07 AM »
For the past 2 years, I've had a 5DII and a 7D because they are each so great in their area.  The 5DIII definitely makes up some ground, but assuming you have a lot of light,  the 7D is still the better camera for birding because of the higher pixel density, and faster frame rate.

Lenses / Re: Sigma new 105mm macro better than canon 100L macro ?
« on: March 20, 2012, 09:27:16 PM »
I had a Sigma 105mm macro that I bought used for $100 on eBay 10 years ago.  It was one of the sharpest lenses I've ever had.  I'd still have it but it was a Nikon mount...

B&H just charged me in full for my 5dIII kit.   :D Which means I have to pay  :'( But I get my 5DIII ;D

I have 2 day shipping, so maybe, just maybe, they will ship so I receive on the 22nd. Apple is famous for that.

B&H has placed 2 charges for $1 on my card today. That ussually means a check to see the card is working.

I am tempted to order from Adorama with their "bundle" and then cancel when one ships. 

When I'm traveling in harsh environments, I use an old rebel and a good prime. I got the rebel on woot for like $300 refurbished. Instead of going the super weather sealed route, I went the "wouldn't be crushed if it got destroyed" route. It's lightweight and takes great pictures, and it's been beaten up pretty badly and lightly rained upon as well.

I have a 20D for the same reason.  It also makes a god loaner for photo walks for that cute girl who shows up without a camera, or to let my 6 year old handle.  20D + 50mm f1.8 was $180 on eBay...

In general, the 60D is a great camera, and I think the better focus system makes it worth it over the 600D.  I'd think used 50D before i went to a new 600D.

I never delete in camera.  I just have large cards, and download often.  I do think deleting in camera and formatting on the computer, or not at all are contributors to corrupt cards.

I also think cards get lost when they are out of the camera, far more often than pockets explode.

My 5DIII will have a 32GB CF card, and an 8GB Eye-Fi Pro.  The Eye-Fi pro will be new for me, and will send my photos to my iPad for review, Facebook and instagram.

Third Party Manufacturers / Re: Any rumors about Adobe CS6?
« on: March 20, 2012, 03:10:33 PM »
Likewise I am holding off on Lightroom 4 thinking it will be included with Photoshop CS6, or will be a small amount more.  When Lightroom 3 was $300, it was $100 add on when you bought Photoshop CS5.  For the first month of CS5 or so anyway.

If you don't want to spend the cash for a 50mm f1.4, I'd say pick up a 50mm f1.8.  A fantastic little lens for the price.
