If you're rich, you're just lucky. Now... where did I put that flashlight? I need to walk back to my OWS tent.

....And the harder they worked, they luckier they became ;)

I guess but i never felt a need to have IS in that focal length.

do we need IS now with the great ISO of the 5D3? :D

It is true! The nex7 produces great images for APS-C but the nex5 has better high iso. I just wish the nex7 wouldn't vignette with leica m wide angle glass. Which is why leica guys buy the nex5n instead.

This is way off topic, but the thread's tanked anyway, right?

I've just submitted my second NEX-5N order (rather than the NEX-7) because, as you say, the 5N plays better with a much broader spectrum of Leica mount lenses (Leica, Zeiss, Voigtlander, etc) - but it's more to do with the type of lens. The 7 does not play well with the symmetrical lenses like the Biogons, etc, because the small photo sites are more affected by the very oblique light rays caused by the very shallow depth between the bottom lens element and the sensor (if I understand it correctly).

The larger 5N sites are less affected by the angled light rays, and don't cause the significant color shifts (magenta, primarily) in the bottom right and bottom left corners, as the NEX-7, with these symmetrical lenses.

That's all I'll post on the off-topic subject now.

Carry on 5D3 detractors, with coming to conclusions on a camera we haven't touched yet. :)

After seeing how clean the 5DIII ISO6400 pics looked, Im quite impressed. I cant wait to have my own hands on with this camera so I can do a proper ISO test with my needs.

If it's that sharp, I don't know why Canon don't try making it an F2 lens that's just a bit softer at F2?
I imagine people would gladly pay a handsome price for such a lens...

Is that an actual question or am I missing some sarcasm somewhere? Because that is a horrible idea.

So, what exactly do you shoot that would make you want a camera without an AA filter or a very weak AA filter? It seems, based on the images on your blog, that you are a big fan of local contrast, which is basically a rough type of sharpening. In fact, the D700 is probably perfect for what you do.

But on a serious note I would use a D800e for wedding & portrait work, 'IF' moire is rare enough and treatable enough. I would gain allot more crop-ability, and my 851.4 could easily act as a 135 F2 or 200 2.8 when reach is needed
The vanilla 800 looks pretty sharp so far, so I'll wait and see...

It seems to me the 5D is good with larger clearly defined elements even with high ISO's, yet anything with fine detail or small repetitive detail practically get's completely smudged over?

From a Nikon shooter who uses a D700. Do you own any of the 5D models?

Comment from another dicussion forum about the 5DIII


"_ _ _ _ _ _, i seriously think you need to re-asses what you think is good value in a camera.
just on ten years ago i spend 2200 on a 10D...6MP 4 or so FPS 1.6 crop barely any buffer.
Today 3500 buys 22MP. 6FPS. Stellar IQ. Brilliant AF. Weather sealing. HD video..on and on and on.
Its a steal not a rip off.."

Tbh, when I upgraded my 50D/550D to a Nikon crop, I was too clueless at the time to opt for a 5D classic or 1Dsii, rather than change systems...

Somebody paid $2200 for a 10D? Was he in Europe? 10D was $1500 when it launched.

As for good value, of course that's a personal call. But considering that the 5DIII is basically a 5DII with better AF (AF that, it should be mentioned, the 5DII should have had at its price point in the first place) it's kind of hard to swallow the $800 price hike. It's not a rip off, but it's certainly not a steal either.
