Okay, just got the new filter, can't wait to get out there and try this!

Just do it! Buy one. Join the club.YA! it's a cool club! Thought I may have sold my 7d by now anyway, just can't do it though, still loving it even though it's not getting the use it previously did... Still love it for birding and sports, moreso for sports though. I still feel the difference between the 8fps and the 6fps of the 5d3 and sometimes that's the difference between getting the "money shot" or getting the shot before or after the money shot!
I would say a used 5D2 or a Refurb 5D3 when they come back down to the 2375$ pricing. The 6D AF isn't much better than the 5D2 IMO.+1
The thumb-jog doesn't really matter much on the 5D2/6D/5Dc because you'll mainly be using one point.
I dunno, I'm beginning to suspect I have a particularly sharp copy, but I just got a 2x extender II, and mounted on my 70-200 2.8/non-is, I'm pretty happy with the results wide open at 400mm. Autofocus is noticeably slower, and has to hunt a little more, but I didn't notice as much CA on high-contrast edges as I expected, and it's not as sharp as the bare lens, but at least in some quick shots of things all the way across the lab, it's absolutely satisfactory... no IS, but I imagine if you're shooting mostly airshows with the extender, that you'd have a fast enough shutter speed to render that irrelevant anyway.Good info, thanks!
I've used my 7d for Soccer, Baseball, Basketball and football and have always loved it! I shoot a 5d3 also and have found that those extra two fps often lead me to the "money shot", where the 5d3 gets fantastic images too, I tend to get the right before and right after the money shots! Like the ball bouncing off the players head for instance...Well I'd go 7D instead of rebel then, although I was never as impressed for 7D for soccer as I had hoped (actually felt the 5D2 center point with helpers with more trustworthy overall and the 5D3 is clearly better, I quickly gave up on the 7D the two times
But the AF on the 7D is almost infinitely configurable so maybe you gave up on it too quickly. Its AF most definitely better than the 5D2, in fact it is in a completely different league
I currently use 5d3, 2 5d2 and a 7d shooting Weddings. I also read what David Ziser said before I purchased the 7d. Based upon my experience over the past year, I would choose the 5d2 over the 7d. You probably should exchange or return the 5d2 refurb you purchased. Get a different refurb or you can still buy a new 5d2 from b&h. I prefer the iq of any of the 5d bodies to the 7d. Iso is also an issue. Good luck!I'd second that. I've used my 7d for several weddings prior to getting the 5d3. It's doable but it's a lot of extra work in post, that's for sure!
My two lazy pups...Very Cute!
In camera T4i HDR setting and little editing in Lightroom 3That's pretty cool too, the verticals are driving me a little crazy though! Nice image

Then it won't be a Rebel anymore, will it? :I feel confident that they won't be manufacturing or releasing any sub $1000 Full Frame cameras... ever, why would they have too?
They'll do it when the competition forces them directly, or indirectly. Its an inevitability. Many makers fighting for market share makes for good competition, and also makes for good value in the product.
Its only a matter of when, not if.
Exactly, it's about the lipstick too!Canon may attempt to impress us with some new solutions, but as long as they stay behind with theirs old sensor technology it is mostly cosmetic solutions compared to Sony/Aptina/Panasonic and others
Indeed. That's what Canon does - puts lipstick on pigs. How do they manage to sell so many pigs?
Could it be Canon doesn't sell just pigs, but rather luaus with all the trimmings, and their luaus are just all-around better...bigger spread, tastier poi, and more skilled fire dancers?
No matter how much you only care about the pig, it's about more than just the pig.
You mean someone believed this!It is, but the spec doesn't seem to be outrageous so where's the joke? I thought it looked like an attractive successor to the 60D. I still miss my 60D.It's difficult to takes announcements serious on April 1st.
Though the specs look very good.
It's even harder to take it seriously when the last line of the article is "Happy fool's day"
The joke is that even if the specs are close to what will be released, how would the web site have actual specs this long before a release. Yes they got the specs, the Easter bunny told them (or was it the APril 1st fairy?)
