I'd say it's likely that ISO 6400 is probably as good, or better (in terms of look & feel of the noise) as ISO 1600 on those bodies.

Thanks Aaron!

I spent about 10 years doing medium format & then digital studio and location strobe work. Highest quality, big prints, never never never above ISO 100.

Time to explore some new terrain I guess.  Amazing tools we have today!

I did a lot of blurry, grainy, challenging images when I was a Photograpy undergraduate, and in B&W.  When I went to almost all color in 1998, I kept going to more refined, pure, beautiful color, smooth tonalities, big prints on my 7600 & 9600.

Time to mix the two I guess. 

Dang, I ordered the 5D3 2nd day from adorama and paid $51 to get it here Friday.  A Canon 9500 II printer, with free ground, ordered and shipped the same day is also getting here Friday.  You think they might have said hey, free will get there ....  (Free said 7-10 days.)

Oh well ... Back to our regularly scheduled L glass fest!  :D

Thanks for helping.  And nice web site too, nice images. Have fun!

Best,
Michael

Thanks for the compliment, although personally I think I need to re-do some of my website UX, but damnit Jim, I'm a software engineer, not a designer! :P

The 24mm 1.4 L mark 2 is a great lens.  I'm a landscape guy and the only lens that I like better is the tilt-shift 24mm II lens but it is only 3.5.  But it is sharp everywhere in the frame and no CA.  It even takes a filter that the 17mm tse does not.  Dual axis is wonderful.  Nikon is only single axis.

Enjoy your 24 and welcome to L land.

After getting the 5D3, I was finding my 16-35 II a bit on the wide side. I already had the 50 L, and decided to try the 24 1.4 II. I used it for one weekend, was amazed and sold the 16-35 the following week.
No regrets.

L glass is the truth! Once you start shooting with that it's very hard to go back to anything standard or point and shoot. I have the 70-200 2.8L II, 24-70 2.8L I, 16-35mm 2.8L, and 35mm 1.4L. I love them all!

Can you compare to the T3i/7D? Will 6400 on the 5D3 be better than 1600 on T3i/T2i/7D?
From my own experience 5d 6400 looks a lot like 7d's 1600. So I think you 'll be happy with what you ll get!

+1. Im almost willing to say that ISO 6400 on the 5D3 when processed and downscaled, looks like ISO 800 on the 7D.

You know what they say, once you go L, you never go back. Or something like that.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.

is it just me, or do I see two test charts?

You do. One is his 28mm, the other his new 24L

interesting. why does the op own a test chart?

The 24 1.4L II is a gret lens. Forget the zooms

Zooms have their place too.  For instance the 70-200 2.8II is arguably the best zoom Canon has made so far.  Probably rivals some good primes.

70-200 2.8 II is amazing.
