My argument is not that the 5D2 has a 'pro AF' but that it is not as useless system as is regularly portrayed.

With a f/2.8 lens the 5D2 still is the best in low light on that centre point

PS I still would not classify the 7D as a pro AF either - just the best at that price point

Brian why are you lurking the Forums disguised as a 40D /EF-S shooter.... trying to hoodwink us eh?  :D

Because I got flamed for showing my kit. It seemed like the politics of envy raised its ugly head. I do have a 40D - this is the one I leave in the car in case I need a camera. I have had it for 4 years and wont get rid of it - it still works well within its limitations.
not wanting to give thieves a shopping list? common sense?

They would have to bring a truck to take it away and living in the middle of nowhere a truck is obvious and difficult to get up the track. I dont give a monkeys if people know what I have in the way of kit - just seems to offend them. I have enough smites because I am not a 7D fanboy so to invite more for the sake of a sig line is just a distraction that I cant be a***d with.

What the heck is a 'pro AF'?? Weren't there professional photographers before autofocus cameras/lenses?
If having the camera do everything for you, and those features only available in the most expensive bodies, then all it takes to be a 'professional' is you spending more money...  ;D

No problem - go take some BIF using a manual focus.

Pros have had AF since at least the 70's.

I've notice that there are a few 7D extremists around here that will put a Jihad on you if you even insinuate that another camera might be better at something, even if you know from first hand experience. Love your equipment, but be realistic about it.

Not sure what to think of Shane's reply to my tweet, but at least he doesn't deny 5D Mark III exist!



For those that may not know, Shane Hurlbut is the DP that used Canon 5D MII's in the action sequences of the new film, Act of Valor.  He is someone I would expect to know what is going on behind the scenes at Canon.  I will reply to him on Twitter and see if he has anything else to say.

Looking forward to the coming days!

not a fan of having color on the camera, it just draws way too much attention to itself that I wouldn't want either at events or when traveling.

It would take a fair bit of color to draw the eye away from that big, white lens...

I like an elegant design when it supports functionality or ergonomics.  Smooth curves are more comfortable to hold, for example.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

It's already 2 March here in New Zealand... it's a shame I'll have to wait another day for all the other time zones to catch up!  :)
5D Mark III, 40D, 1V.  Bunch of strobes, lenses and other bits.
They're, their, there, it's, its, too, to, than, then, you're, your.  One lens, two lenses, the lens's aperture.

Looks like they've made some much needed ergonomic enhances to the battery grip. The old one was a brick. Better have that multi controller we saw in Africa. If so it's looking like every dream I had for the Mark III is coming true. Well, duel CF would have been nicer but I'll take the CF/SD compo anyday over just one CF. Redundancy is everything.
And people get over the price! If this cam is indeed $3500 for the body only, about $800 more than the MkII, than just save for an extra month or two. We're getting a mini 1DX for half the price and that's a big deal. I'd pay a bit more.

Oz site posted on another thread has an ad up for pre-order MkIII with specs;

61 AF points.

6fps

Price..........$A4200 body only.  Looks like $US3500 might be right.
