Thanks, Phil, I'll take a look at your site's March posts and give you a shout when I get close.

Just wanted to clarify a few things from the broadcast that I saw were questions here:
(1) It's is 20.2 megapixels and always has been since I first heard of the camera. That was just a total brain-freeze on my part. I don't have a 24-megapixel version. That was just me misstating one of the specs.
(2) The reason I didn't shoot in Raw was because I don't have any program that is updated to support the unreleased camera. No support yet for Lightroom or Camera Raw, so I had to shoot JPEGs. That being said, I shoot JPEGs for sports either way, but I would have shot some just for example purposes.
(3) I am not sponsored by Canon. I hope to be one day, but at this point, I am not so I bought my Canon gear by selling my Nikon gear -- it was not given to me by Canon. I did get some loaner gear to try out. Nikon let me use loaner gear from time to time, too. So did Sony. Now, if I could just get Hassleblad… ;-)
High five to Forum member Sabaki. I'm with ya.
All my best,
Thanks. I appreciate that is really useful information. So you'd think the 5d3 (with a wrist strap and plate - not an L just a bottom plate) and the 70-200 should fit? Do you carry the 70-300 upright or on it's side? The 70-200 is just a bit longer. Do you think there'd be room for the 17-40 besides?
Very nice shots, Alan. Which body (5D or 70D) were these shot with? Do you prefer one or the other for use with the Tammy?
On the 5DIII. I prefer the 5DIII in general, but in practice there is little difference between the two. The better noise and IQ of the 5DIII balances the 70D's greater reach so both produce images of similar quality and resolution when you are cropping a small bird. For moon shots, which are basically monochrome, the 70D gave marginally better resolution in my tests, agreeing with jrista in his very careful analysis.
