Agreed. Vibrant but natural-looking colors.

I am loving the 70-200 II.

The 35L isn't too bad either, though!

Dan excels at every technique. I won't be surprised if he manages to get a model or couple to freeze in front of a 20sec long exposure.

I'm ecstatic about my 5D3 and the results I'm getting, but I have to ask if others see what I'm seeing. On my 7D and both 5D2's I owned, I got very good results putting my meter at 0 and when I put it at +2/3, it looked slightly over exposed. With my 5D3, I'm having to push +2/3 to +1 just to get what looks like a balanced exposure. Do others see it underexposing slightly? Does my body have a slightly off metering or is this normal?

Here is my favorite so far, this at ISO 400.

And I'm astounded I'm getting usable shots like this at ISO 8000!

Evaluative metering is never perfect since it gets an average. I think spot metering can be more accurate when you know how to use it. I personally switch between the two and chimp or LV + histogram if time permits.

Anyhoo I'm hopefully going to get a chance to use my 5D3 this weekend.. I had it for 2 weeks and besides messing around inside the house, thats the most action it had so far... I actually went out with my t2i last evening :p

Just speaking personally...

I went from a 7D to the 5DIII just under a year ago. I've just passed the 10,000 frames mark with the 5DIII. I can honestly say I found no difference in exposure from the 7D. I never use anything except evaluative metering - because I never find any need to - I guess I have just tuned myself to work with it. I find 0 EV is on the money every time I would expect it to be. In ACR 7, the 4 lights and shadows sliders give you so much to play with I hardly ever find a need to move the exposure slider away from 0.

The one area I am changing in, as I learn all this stuff, is that after years of wondering why everyone keeps banging on about exposing to the right... I am now finding myself aiming at exposing to the right a bit more. I used to be paranoid about blown highlights, and I have a personal taste for liking a wee bit clipped blacks :oops:. However, ACR 7 is helping me to be a bit more bold in taking a step to the right.
