Okay Tommy, you're frustrating me a bit with this post...

Agreed, I don't use it as much as I used to either. I do update it with each new SW update they have and it slowly gets better and better... it's consistently reliable if nothing else!Sunrise shining onto low cloud at Seathwaite Bridge, Borrowdale in the English Lake District.Nice one Sporgon! That little 24-105mm does have a way of pulling out the subtle colors!

Thanks Ken. You're quite right about the colour of the 24-105. ( The 24-70 f4 IS is the same ). There is no photoshop in that image, it is entirely processed from the RAW in DPP, a program which having ignored for years I'm now beginning to have some respect for - within the limits of what it can do of course.
Could be but it sure seems like something a FW update could alter... I'd like the center red focus in all cases pretty much, not just AI Servo. It's just that I shoot there so much!I'd still like a RED focus point in AI Servo!+1 on this, too, but I'm guessing there is a hardware limitation that prevented them from including it in the next-to-last firmware update.
70-200 2.8 IIExcellent perspective Menace!
One I took today. Hope you enjoy.I do! Very sharp!
And some other shots.Love that third image Richard! That's exactly why we miss so many shots, we don't see have of them, with their fine, built in camouflage!

Richard, I love the way the background of clouds look in #2. I find that I resist trying to capture the images anymore of the birds as they fly away, lord knows I have thousands of images of bird butts! In this instance, it's quite appropriate though, as it helps the story unfold... Nice image!A little bit of story telling in a sequence.

Very Good! Takes more to tell a story
Thanks, I went for a short story instead of a novel .
Nice images! I like the Horseshoe Crab and #3 the best! And yes, nice job in PP with the foreground and tones in #4Some recent landscape images from a trip to Kiawah Island, South Carolina

Nice! Were you using ND filters or are those HDR?
No ND filters, they are all single RAW files, just pushed and pulled around within lightroom (lots of gradient filters)
It never ceases to amaze me how many people are never satisfied with what Canon does. If the 5D3 falls short of their expectations, why buy it in the first place?I think most of us do... The forum is just that, it's a forum, a place to talk shop, offer opinions, advice, etc.
For crying out loud, the 5D3 is half the price of the 1Dx. If someone wants the 1Dx features, they should reach into their pocket and pony up the funds to buy the 1Dx. It's that simple.
I elected to add the 5D3 to my bag as a second body to my 1D4. I knew what the specifications were when I made the decision to buy it. It performs as advertized. Firmware updates to deal with bugs that show up are appreciated and I'm thankful that the manufacturer offers them up. I don't expect Canon to turn my 5D3 into a 1Dx.
Anyone who purchased a 5D3 knew full well what it's features and limitations were when they made the decision and laid their money down.
If you own the 5D3, which is a great camera, just pick it up and go take some photos.

Lighting of the gods indeed Richard! That second one is one of those images that even if you missed it, you're glad you were there to experience it! It feels wonderful, just looking at the image! Thanks for sharing that one!
Nice images ... I particularly like the second one
Thanks JR. It was one of those days where the light was in the lap of the gods. With the first shot, I waited around twenty minutes for the sun to light the mountains in the distance, but ended up with this one, taken soon after I'd set up, yet when we climbed the hill, it didn't look that promising, only to get the lighitng on the second.
California Central CoastNice Sean! Welcome to the forum, look forward to seeing some more of your work!
