Give it a few days after holidays. Pricing is kinda odd right now. I'm looking at Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II and currently it is less expensive in Canada than in the US.

Well... the key word here is (quite correctly) "integrated". If only integration was a reality.... Sorry for offtop.This was taken at an impromptu demonstration against the British National Party.Wow! I did not know that about Glasgow! Great! More power to integrated societies.
I happened to be walking down Glasgow's main shopping area with my camera bag when my attention was taken by some ragtags and bobtails wearing hi-vis vests with the union jack flag on them.
Alarm bells rang and I hung around to see what developed, within 5 minutes there were civilians of all creeds, class, colour and age protesting against these anti-immigration loon-balls, to the point where Police were mobilised for their protection.
I love Glasgow. It has it's faults, but most of it's people are solid gold, and generally we stand up together against to people like this.
Glasgow was once one of the worlds busiest ports, our ships mobilised world trade, and brought impoverished hungry Irish and persecuted Jews to our city, enriching it's culture, fighting in our Army's, providing both brain and brawn to our industries. We have a history of acceptance, of refuge. And thats why we stand up to the BNP, when they attack the Eastern Europeans and Muslims who have made Glasgow their home in more recent years.
No one needs 21MP. All it does is slow everything and clog your hard drive.[/i]
Try shooting your 5D Mark III at its M (11MP) or S (5MP) settings. If you look at your images at 100%, you'll see that the lower resolution shots are sharper pixel-by-pixel!
When I'm photographing family and friends, I shoot at SMALL JPG. Even SMALL is good enough for great 20x30" prints.
The smaller-sized images out of the 5D Mark III are spectacular. They are much, much sharper and cleaner than images from cameras on which that is their native resolution. When you start with over 20MP, it looks pretty good if you use all those to make 11MP or 5MP.
Why? Because they use less, or no, Bayer interpolation. No digital camera really resolves its rated resolution; they cheat and interpolate up, so at 100% at its rated resolution, no digital camera image is as sharp as a true scan from film.
