EOS Bodies / Re: 5DIII pre-order thread
« on: March 20, 2012, 05:44:18 PM »
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?

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.

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.

The 5DII dropped $200 14 month after it first shipped.  Not worth waiting in my opinion.
