Just picked up a new 5D3 last week and took it out for a little high school volleyball over the weekend at the Kentucky High School State Championship. Overall very pleased with the AF, as I had very little time to experiment before putting it into use.

The best surprise, however, has been how clean the images were. I'd shot my daughter's high school team with a 1D2 the past couple of season and shooting at ISO 1600, I'd be lucky to get a SS of 1/500 with my 135MM F2. Given a brand new high school gym this weekend with fantastic lighting, I shot most of the weekend around ISO 5000, SS of 1/1600, with my 70-200MM F2.8.

These are SOOC JPG's with no post processing. I shot the same images in RAW and haven't had time to mess with them yet.

Look good! I shot my wife's team there the week before for regionals (although I'm probably still a week or so out from getting time from work to sit down and go through them). I found the light to be very nice (I shot with a 7D and 70-200mm 2.8). For comparison sake, here are some other pictures from some of the pro's that were wandering around during regionals (I always like to check out other people shooting the same stuff whenever I can to see where my skills actually lie):

I'll post mine here in the next week or so and I'll send you a PM.

I have the 1Dx and am shooting at levels I never thought would be possible. I have been shooting at 8000 and 10,000 ISO with minimal noise. What noise there is looks like film grain. The new bodies that Canon and Nikon are putting out there are crazy.


Equipment list: Canon 1Dx, Canon 1D mk III, 50D, 400mm 2.8L, 70-200mm 2.8L, 17-40 4.0L, 24-105 4.0L IS, Sigma 15mm 2.8 FE, (2) 580EX II

Nice images... I'm on the fence about upgrading my 1DM3 and going with a used 1DM4 or a new 5DM3. I'm leaning towards the 5DM3 for the better AF engine. I do a lot of high school and club volleyball.

The 1D IV is also an excellent body for volleyball. Remember the 5D III will need a grip. Both will do a great job.

I was on the same fence a few months ago, but went with the 1DX. I know it is a bunch more money, but if you can make the plunge you won't regret it.

I picked up a 5d3 a few weeks back and it's been great!
Nice shots!

I was in the same place and I am glad that I went with the 1Dx. The 5D3 is similar, but not quite the same.

I went with the 5D3... I can't justify the 1DX right now. I got the grip and also switching over to the 600EXs. I know its a little slower in fps, but don't think I'll be disappointed vs. my 1D3. If I am, I can always sell it and move to the 1DX in the future.

Thanks for the replies and kind comments - haven't checked out this thread in a while.

Unfortunately, my family was only at the tournament as spectators. My daughters team didn't make it past first round of state regionals. They're a young team, so maybe next year.

;)
