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.

MP-E65 all the way.  IF you can handle the fact that it is Manual focus, and pretty much must be used on a good macro rail, on a tripod.

I have a 7D and love it, but cannot believe the price difference from a 60D to a 7D.  I think the 60D is definitely the better buy, and if the savings got to better glass, it's almost certianlly going to deliver better photos for you.

Congratulations, It's awsome camera.

I got 12 negatives in about 6 hours for mentioning how easy it was to game the system with 2+ accounts, or how one person could negative another on the same post every 2 hours with no limit.  Perhaps it was assumed I was doing that.

Lenses / Re: sigma 12-24 mk II

I had this lens (Mark I) and miss it.  No it's not as sharp as a 70-200 f2.8 II.  It is sharper than Canon's 12mm  :o

I replaced mine with the Sigma 15mm fisheye, and then Canon's 8-15mm fisheye.  Which are great fun.

Get a 5D III, fill it with honey, set it next to the 5DII  The Ants will upgrade.

I don't know which joke to choose in this post, they're all so freaking hilarious!
Kudos to everybody!!
BTW where do you keep your camera, how many ants do you think are inside and still I don't understand how they manage to get inside if you kept the battery door closed.

So far my joke has earned me 2 smites, and 0 applause, so the system continues to work well!

On a more serious note, Ants will go in things to explore, but will generally leave if there is no food to be found.  So unless there is food inside the camera, they should just leave.  I think I might place the camera outside in the sun to encourage the process.  And maybe remove a body panel to ease the path out.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5D3 FIRST PRICE DROP?????
« on: March 14, 2012, 08:02:31 PM »
The 5DII dropped $200 14 month after it first shipped.  Not worth waiting in my opinion.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?
« on: March 14, 2012, 11:27:26 AM »
What are the conclusions such as dynamic range and color accuracy based on?  I would really like to the the DXOlabs reports on both cameras, but they have not been done yet.

5D II leaves today after an eBay sale.  :'(  Total cost for 3.3 years of ownership? $1321, or $1.14/day.  And that was for the kit and grip.  ;D

Hoping my 5D III ships soon after the March 22nd date...    Have a crop camera to tide me over.

Lenses / Re: New 70-200 f4L USM ???
« on: March 11, 2012, 08:38:10 PM »
It seems very unlikely they would replace this lens.  With the IS version already the better newer lens, and the 70-300 f5.6 IS intruding on the saw space, it's more likely they will discontinue it flat out.

From what I have heard, it is well worth the money, and you should buy without worry.

You can't be overly sensitive about that stuff.  One person can smite you very 2 hours indefinitely on the same post.  So there is no winning.  And of course you can make 2+ accounts and applaud your self as well.

I'd love to see the ratio of smites to applause given by a person...

It would be far more interesting to see the applaud/smite ratio a person has given.
