    Can someone recommend a teleconverter?

    You all rock. I lean toward the 2X after seeing Neuro's shots. I think 95% of the time, it'll be on the 70-200 2.8 II.

    Can someone recommend a teleconverter?

    I'm looking at either the 1.4X III or the 2X III from Canon. I'll be using them on a 5DIII primarily with a 70-200 2.8 II. It's for the times I'm shooting wildlife, which isn't often, but I do have a trip coming up in December. How mushy are pics with the 2X? Is the little extra reach on the...

    Deal: Canon EOS 5D Mark III $2928

    Re: Deal: Canon EF 24-105 f/4L IS $749 Crazy deal! I just bought one. Couldn't pass that up. I wonder if space is being made for the new 24-70 f4?

    Adorama is selling 5d3 for $2745 on eBay now

    Mine came yesterday. Sixth digit is a 4. I'm impressed with the camera, but wish it wasn't so bulky and heavy.

    24-70 II

    I've noticed Amazon's page for the 24-70 doesn't specify version II, but it does have the high price. The release date is wrong. Any idea if you order this lens you're getting the newer one? Last I checked, it said there were a few left in stock. Not sure what you're buying, though. :(

    5D3 owners: What do you wish you knew?

    My new body is "out for delivery." I've been reading the 404 page manual for the past few days, familiarizing myself with the settings and AF options. What do you wish you'd known the first day? Any customizations that you've found to make life easier? Here's your chance to impart your wisdom...

    24L II or 24-70 II ??

    I'm torn. I love my primes. I love low light and bokeh, but I also like having that one walk-around lens that does a little of everything. With a new 5DIII on the way, I'm losing the 15-85 EF-S lens. I have a 28mm 1.8, which will show its weaknesses on the 5DIII, I'm afraid. I have a 50mm, a...

    6D Review

    I do the same thing with my blog posts, only I don't have them "live" while I do it. He's just using the framework of his old review as a pattern for the new review. Funny, re-reading this "6D" review has me even more excited for my 5D3, which Adorama says will be here on Thursday! At $2,750...

    Canon EOS 6D Official Specs

    No built-in flash? Why? Canon is doing everything wrong. I keep waiting for them to wake up, but I guess it'll take them being #2 or #3 in the market before they get with the program. As impossible as that would've seemed a few years ago, now it seems inevitable.

    Same. Crazy that they processed so many so swiftly. I was in the 600 range with my order. Now I get to watch the announcements tomorrow and see if I'm going to keep this body or sell it.

    If you can have ONLY 3 lenses, what would they...???

    24mm 1.4 II 50mm 1.2 70-200 2.8 II I can't believe so many people would be fine with nothing faster than 2.8 in their kit.

    Adorama is selling 5d3 for $2745 on eBay now

    Crazy. I just put a D600 in my Amazon cart last night along with a 1.4 50mm. Was making the switch, seeing that their camera is being released in a few days. And then I see this thread. For another $750, I get a 5DIII instead. Thanks, Adorama. I get to keep my lenses for another few years!

    Which lens(es) to take to NYC?

    The 15-85. I've walked around NYC a lot with that lens on an APS-C. Great single-use lens for the city.

    The Light Leak Issue

    Really? I've always wondered why Canon didn't include that feature. Always thought it was nifty.

    Canon 5D Mark III Light Leak?

    I can't believe they wouldn't have a solid backing on the other side of that LCD panel. Incredible. Rushmore: thanks for the video.
