[QUOTE=JWright;1400708​6]I hope this one gets thrown out. They're trying to blame the railroad for their stupidity. And the signs are there. The BNSF tracks around here are just littered with them.

Trains magazine put it very succinctly: People who would never try to walk on an airport runway or an interstate highway somehow think they can walk on a railroad..."[/quote]


what about the thousands and thousands of photos taken every week of people standing in the middle of the road?

okay, sorry. back to senior shooting info and pics.

There seems to be a lot of disappointment with features and price of the 5DMIII on the other board on this forum. And if you want the grip, it's $490 extra.

Ouch on the grip price! The features I would really be after are the extra AF points and higher ISO. The rest, meh, whatever. I still love my camera. :)

I think I am going to open that 5dmk2 which is lying in my closet for last 3 months. $3500 is too much for me. I can get one but I like working with atleast two bodies.

Tiffy, you can probably use a P.O.S. EOS and get wonderful results.. :D

every time i wanted to buy a new driver or putter or new irons, my wife stated, "hey CT. it aint the tool, it is the fool that is swinging the club."

Compared to the MII, I just don't see how focus points, higher ISO performance, dual card slots, etc will help that much to improve one's senior photography.

Agreed. As much as I am an equipment whore, I'm skipping this one.

If the AF is reliable at apertures larger than f/2.8, it's worth it. The 5DII is absolutely terrible in that regard. For outdoor senior shots I do a lot of shooting in the f/2 - f/1.2 range.

I got my 1DMKIV just before Thanksgiving. I knew that this 5D3 update was close and when i read that they were going to consolidate the 1D line up i knew i had to act quick. I got very very lucky when i spoke to a familiar name at CPS and told them i was looking for a refurbished 1DMKIV. She told me that they rarely come in or have refurb MakkIV's. I check back for 40 days after the conversation, every day at 9:00 am because thats when she told me they put them on their site. One day it said in stock so i called and spoke to my gal. She grabbed one for me. They got 3 in that were damaged box during shipment so they had to repackage as a refurbished. I also had a credit with them so i would up getting this 1DMKIV for $3645.00 plus tax. Came in right at $3900.00 with tax. It was basically brand new with a 297 shutter count.

So i got very lucky. I'm not very happy with this update. Looks like a cross b/t a 7D and a 5D with an improved AF system. Going to reserve judgement until the raw files get out on the net for comparison. Pretty sure i will pass on this update. $3500.00 was more than i expected. For that price, your in 1DMKIV territory and the MKIV blows a 5D2 and the 5D3 out of the water. So if your going to pop for a 5D3 and a grip, you might consider a low count MKIV. Shutter is good to 400K..,,5D series is still 150K. 8000 iso is very very usable on a MKIV
