Shot another lacrosse game last night with the new 5DM3 and my 400mm f/2.8L IS II and left my 1DM4 at home. Last night reinforced my impressions of using the 5DM3 from the previous night. I definitely do believe that the AF & tracking on the 5DM3 outperforms that of the 1DM4 especially under the stadium lights. I am getting more keepers and love the image quality and see a good improvement at higher ISO settings like 4000 on the 5DM3. 157 images from nights game are being uploaded to: http://jprimages.com …oys/2012/vbhs/s​rhs/032212 (external link)

all those samples are in thumb size, even a webcam would look just as good in such small resolution.

I'd love to see some of these action shots at full size, as above comment suggests it's hard to gauge sharpness from these.

Any chance JPR ?

Yep, and again, unless I'm mistaken you cannot view at full size... they're still massive reductions in size.

As I said, still smaller... yes you can click for a slightly bigger version but it's still massively reduced.

That is exactly what I expected to hear to confirm my thoughts.
Thank you.

looks pretty nice. the low light performance alone would be worth it as a cheap pro sports camera. my 7D just doesnt do it under poor stadium lights :(

My son has the 7D and I was surprised at the amount of noise at Iso 800+

Hi,

Love your pictures, are you using case 6? They really are sharp and have some nice "pop"!!

Your Metering Mode says "Pattern". Can you explain that as the only ones I see in the manual are:

  • Evaluative metering
  • Partial Metering
  • Spot Metering; and
  • Center Weighted Average Metering



Thanks


Tony

  • It is evaluative metering, Zenfolio who I use for my website calls it pattern.

    Hi JPR,
