I went from 450D- 7D-6D ,couldn't afford 5DIII , hardly pick up the 7D except for when using MP-E 65 , ff rules. BTW I started shooting pics in 1969.

Thinking about this for a few more minutes and just wanted to add this thought.

On this forum, we often discuss spending hundreds or even thousands of dollars as though it means nothing. I'm often amazed at the number of people here who have the means to spend vast sums of money on camera equipment.

Probably a majority of the discussions on this forum revolve around whining about how our expensive toys aren't good enough and how Canon isn't producing products fast enough for our liking.

I think a topic like this is genuinely helpful and should be humbling to all of us. We should all reflect on how fortunate we are in comparison to the majority of people across the globe.


Well, the 6D has what is effectively a 1-point AF system.

A bit of an exaggeration...  I often use the outer focal points on my 6D.  Yes, the center point is much better, but the outer points are not bad in decent light.  I can nail shallow DOF with the outer points.

picked the 6D over 5DIII as I mostly shoot macro with the MP-E65,manual focus only on this lens,just wanted ff and have found the low light performance means I can shoot available light handheld without having to use MT-24,5DIII overkill for me.

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: 5Dm3 Not Recognizing 100mm 2.8 Macro as f2.8?

I think Neuro discussed this,the Macro 100mm L f2.8 ,is a different grouping than ordinary lenses,this means the focus points don't react as they would with another 2.8 lens that was not a macro.

Interesting to note,here in Aus the deal is AUS$9.99 p/m for once we get the same as US,been a long time coming.

EOS Bodies / Re: The last Canon crop sensor - ever
« on: August 14, 2013, 11:30:38 PM »

Did anyone ever call 35mm film "full frame" before digital came along (except maybe in the context of those cameras that could shoot 2 or 4 pictures within a single 35mm frame)?  I think you might be able to argue that anytime some refers to FF in this context they are talking digital.

No, quite the opposite.  35mm was traditionally called the miniature or leica format.

All those folk with 6D's and 5D3's thinking that 'full frame' is just the best thing ever...  the medium format guys haven't even noticed you are in the room.

Used for years on 7D, would not go back to single button,rear button is the go.Wish they had this in the 70's...

Software & Accessories / Re: Lee Big Stopper Discontinued?
« on: July 29, 2013, 02:35:53 AM »
I had occasion to contact Lee about the availability of the Big Stopper here in Australia mid last year. I received a reply saying they were having problems with the supplier of the glass, apparently 2 shipments of glass last year failed Lee testing,this was why there was shortage last year.Maybe the probs continue.
