Thanks for the comments.
Yes the wide ap DOF test is correct, that is the 5Dii on the left and the 5Diii on the right....crazy huh?
Something I am noticing on the 5Diii vs the 5Dii - The 5Dii seems to like reds and magentas a little more, the 5Diii seems to, I hate to say this...like "greens" a little more. Take that with a grain of salt because I am shooting JPEG with AWB, but yes, in the portrait test, High ISO test, and wide aperture test, there is clearly something different going on with either the white balance or color sampling. I still think the 5Dii looks really, really good.
Something else I have noticed several times (and I didnt mention this in my reviews because I cant be certain of it) - In ISOs between 100-400, it seems as if the overall exposure of the 5Dii is brighter than the 5Diii by about a 1/2 stop. There were several times on the shoot, I literally switched lenses onto either camera body, same exact settings and shooting conditions, and the 5Dii looked brighter.
Over an ISO of 500 however, this is not the case, and when shooting JPEG, some really crazy stuff (good stuff) starts happening on the 5Diii- Ill be posting another review on this soon. Suffice it to say that between 500 and 640 ISO a different algorithm kicks in if you are using ISO noise reduction, and the noise between 640-1250 on the 5Diii is very comparable to much lower ISOs on the 5Diii.
I did another shoot with the model (Annie) yesterday for the review video and Ill be posting on my blog soon. (www.michaelthemaven.com
She wanted me to tell everyone hi and thank you for the nice comments.
In the mean time, you guys might be interested in the youtube review I did- Just kind of a quick run through on what I like, dont like etc.
PS- I have and use the 24 and 35 Primes, they are both wonderful and I use them both equally, but if I had to choose, I would go with the 24mm 1.4
