I got to say, the battery life is no where as good as the 7D and I suspect it is as mentioned worse than the 5D II even though it is suppose to be better.

I've noticed this too. Just ordered a third battery last night because of this same observation.

... which would be diffraction-limited at what, f/5.6? Feh.

Good question.

I found the following article very useful in understanding diffraction: http://www.cambridgein​colour.com …ffraction-photography.htm (external link)

Page 2 has a calculator that (for 35mm, 45MP) indicates affect from f6.6, and f8.2 for 'probably visible'.

Interestingly, I still see magazines advising using really small apertures for 'maximum sharpness' (possibly confusing with max depth of field), and frequently they have landscape images taken with crop bodies at f11 or smaller.


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

I filled two 16G cards yesterday on 1 battery, and it still showed 2/5 full. I don't think my 5D2 could have done that (although I can't say for sure, as I never tried).

I only have a 7D to compare to. I think the quick battery drain was because I was messing with menus and using the LCD a lot when I first got the camera. When I shot normally yesterday, the battery seemed to have normal drain when I didn't constantly have the LCD on and off.

I did a couple of walkarounds, and then about 2.5 hours at the beach. Maybe 4 hours with the camera on. I didn't spend much time with menus, although I did go into the card and start going through pictures and deleting losers so I could get more shots on...

I filled over 64GBs on one battery yesterday while shooting a wedding. All the LP-E6 batteries I've had have been pretty awesome.

I've never had to switch out batteries while using the Mark II with a grip. I'm pretty sure i won't have to once I get the BG-E11 for the Mark III.

Yep, I'm not finding much difference in power usage between a 5D3 and 5D2. Maybe a little less on the mk3, but there's not a huge difference with my cams.

I have been out 3 times with the 5DIII, and I have noticed the battery use of the 5DIII definitely is more than the 5DII. I shoot the 5DIII almost the exact same as I did the 5DII.It is not terrible, I always thought the 5DII was very good. I carry one extra battery, and only ran out of battery on one trip.


just a few of my thoughts...

Pretty awesome that the battery life is still good!

It's probably because you delete less OOF images :lol:.

The 5D2 couldn't because it wasn't clean above 6400

... or even at6400 in my experience

The 5D3's AF works in darker situations (even though the user can't see where it's aimed) and it's ISOs are about 2 stops better, at least in terms of lacking banding...

When shooting JPG, or raw-to-raw? Most of what I've found so far indicates the former, which would seem to correspond with stronger default in-camera NR.

I've just spent the weekend with my 5D3 hooked up to tele lenses with IS and AF running almost non-stop, including on an EF 600 IS which I imagine drains a bit more power than smaller lenses (3000 shots on two batteries and a bit I think)....definitely tough on batteries but under the same circumstances the 5D2 would probably not have done much better. During the previous week while I was testing the new camera I commented to my lady how good the Canon batteries are.


Growing old disgracefully!

Oh I just found out that when I put my Eye-Fi SD card in the 5D3 I get a new menu item called "Eye-Fi Settings" :D

Now there is not much in that menu except for a enable/disable. When enabling it is possible to view status of the wifi connection as well as the SID and MAC address. I had some photos on the card that was never transmitted so when I enabled the card it started transmitting them.

Would you please Let me know how that works. Someone just gave me an Ap that lets you shoot with the wifi card and it goes straight to the Ipad for viewing.
