There is no way, I will ever pay one cent more for a 5D3 than Nikon is charging for the D800. As a matter of fact, if the coming D600 also bests the 5D3 in DR and costs even less, then that price (1500-2000) will be my new upper price limit for the 5D3.

And IF Nikon brings out a "true killer" crop D400 that bests the 7D (or 7D II) in a big way, especially in terms of DR - then I will probably switch to nikon with a D400 + D600 dual body setup plus holy trinity in lenses and be done with Canon for many years.

I upgraded from 7D to 5D3. The price here was (2 month ago) around US$3,000. And it's even slightly cheaper that D800 price, probably due to the D800 price increase.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Canon EOS 5D Mark III Firmware 1.1.3

Um...since when does a camera need to be updated to support a new lens? What on Earth is so special about the Shorty McForty that it warrants a 5DIII firmware update?

Probably for the in-camera peripheral illumination & CA correction...

I could have sworn that's done with lens profiles that you download to thhe camera with DPP, and not with firmware.

b&

This can be done on DPP and in camera.

The lens profile download you mentioned probably referring to 'Digital Lens Optimiser' (DLO). It can't be done in camera.

Excuse my ignorance but can someone explain in plain english why the camera can't focus at F8.0?
I have a 24-70 2.8L and use F8 all the time... I find it to be the best, sharpest and most natural F-stop for studio work...
Please someone tell me if that is going to affect me or not.  :-\

Cheers

It's not that you can't focus at f/8. It means that you can auto-focus using any lens that has widest aperture more than f/5.6.
E.g. when you use the EF 400 f/5.6L + 2.0x extender, your widest aperture will be f/8, therefore, you'll lose the auto-focus ability.

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III vs D800/E, is the 5D3 better at anything?
« on: June 04, 2012, 10:22:48 PM »
Probably because its 3500$.

I think not. The usual crappy supply situation at Nikon is probably the one to blame. Coupled with a few defects on early batches (including batteries).

On flickr, for what it's worth, there are quite a bit more 5D3 users.

I just hope it drops to 2999$ by christmas time. Then I could justify it perhaps.

I bought my 5D3, 2 months ago here in Malaysia. The street price was RM9,600. That's about US$3,000. If not mistaken, it's slightly cheaper than D800 street price.

For video, it is known the D800 is sharper out of camera... However, the 5D3 takes better to post processing. More detail comes out of sharpening the softer 5D3 video then having it be sharper out of camera. That is what Chuck the Canon tech guy has said, at least.

That's also what 'The Camera Store - Nikon D800 vs. 5D Mark III Part 3' and Philip Bloom said.

When a thief finds a camera, does he/she really look closely to see if it has a red ring?

IMHO, 99% of people don't know what that "red ring" means...

unless it's a "red ring on a white lens"...  ;)

Reikan FoCal (Pro version) also comes with a 'Focus Consistency Test' that might be useful to you.

Let me blow your mind a little.



AND......




obviously these could not have been taken by a 5D3............. ::) ::) ::)

http://www.flickr.com/photos/mattbicephotography/ here is my photostream so you can go look at the pictures at full size. I think LR4.1 RC certainly works better with Nikon.

For the Lightroom/ACR conversion, did you use Photoshop's highlight/shadow adjustment too or just Lightroom/ACR's exposure slider?

I have absolutely no idea how they'll cope next year with the Olympics.
