D800 -> D810

The 5dm3 is looking really old.

You have officially made it to the wrong site

Ok this topic has (officially) went the wrong way. I am very sorry for writing my above post, I thought I was just chiming in but it just added fuel to an already too big fire. I forgive the guy who started this topic to begin with and not to sound like Reginald Denny but let's all get back to the thing we all love, (photography)
The previous cat shots I have here were composed by moving the subject in front of the camera; this is a 100% crop of one composed by moving the camera at a more stationary subject.  It is also stopped down to f/2.8.  The lens profile in LR5 aside it is unaltered.

TL;DR This lens works.

500$ drop.. wow.. makes me thing about their profit margins.

you know people will always tell you canon can not sell the lenses cheaper because there is so much expensive glass in it and R&D is so expensive.
when others do, it´s  because they skimp on glass or R&D.

or maybe, as others think, it´s just that they don´t have such big profit margins.

anyway the 24-70mm f4 now looks like fair deal.

tho I'd want that TS lens on an Exmor-based body for landscapin' cuz my pictures let the sun shine in (frame)

For me, I'd want an AA filter as my main use of the TS-E lens(es) is architecture, lots of potential for moiré.
Software & Accessories / Re: Anyone with f-stop ICU Large Pro??
« Last post by ScubaX on Today at 02:45:51 PM »
Check out this article for some ideas about the ICU sizes. With you listed gear, you might get buy with a medium. If you call F-stop, they can guide you and usually give you a discount if you go for additional ICU at the time of purchase.
To me, extra reach simply means I can zoom in closer to the subject when standing a certain distance away.  1.6 times closer with a Canon crop sensor.  Simple definition.

The "zooming closer" is an illusion. The lens does not draw a bigger image on the sensor.

But a 70D has more MP in the center of the picture than does a 5DIII so you appear to get a "closer zoom".

Similarly with the viewfinder, it only presents a smaller part of the image circle.
I'm standing on the side of the road on a sunny day and I'm looking at a bald eagle that is 75 meters away sitting at the top of a tree.
same situation...except I'm looking at an Ostrich.  Which camera do I grab.

Doesn't matter, but you'd better be on the phone to the Guinness Book of World Records, the local news media, and the tabloids to report your flying ostrich!!!
