Sometimes I do regret it. Im shooting a friends birthday since I enjoy it.

Gipped 5D, 24-70L, flash bracket and 580EX II flash. After about 4 hours, arms refuse to function properly :lol: Comes to about 2.5kg :lol:

I was shooting a friend's wedding (candids - not the "photog" for the event) with a gripped 40D+24-105L and gripped 5D+70-200mm f/2.8L IS with my 85mm f/1.8 as a stand-in for low-light... and I carried it all, all day!

Oh, and the church was not air-conditioned and the OUTSIDE temperature was 95 that day... ugh.

But I did get some decent candids in the church! My friend (the one on the right) told his wife that I was in the church somewhere taking pictures... they turned around to see a 70-200mm f/2.8 staring them in the face, and got this shot:

(ISO 800 - EXIF intact)

I like this one... I know, old school SC stuff but the deal is, the subject and the kinda bizare "Twilight Zone" feel is the manikins standing there with no heads.

So for me , this is kinda cool.

But , perhaps a "tighter" crop on the left side to remove some of the glass to the left of the "left" door perhaps, IMO it is kinda weighted a bit to the left. (just my 2 cents)

Thanks for sharing!

Cheers,

Dave

Here's one from me...which do you like better, the conversion, or straight up color, or of course, neither...cause they are horrible? :lol: The shot was taken while we were driving towards South Beach, Miami. Love Miami!

EDIT: Here's the SC version...

I love my 5D ever since i fired the first frame. This was taken with a 135L and no post processing, except the resize. What you see there is pure 135L and 5D, this sort of imagry I haven't seen from a D3 yet.

This was taken with a 85L and again, no post processing.

Thanks; I'm really amazed at the sharpness of the 24-105; even wide open, my copy is very sharp. And IS never hurts ;).

Maybe I am getngold but I thougt a 300mm 2.8 IS & 5D would make a good combo for portraits and children running about type action shots?

Thought with the quality of the glass and the 5D it would make a sweet combo - naturally I have other lens to use aswell as the 300mm.

Anyone got any thoughts? :)

Since I use the 5D/24-105 combo so much for walk-around and scenic photography (as opposed to, say, the 1DM3/24-70 combo), I started some tests yesterday, taking shots with the 5D/24-105, the 5D/24-70, the 1D/24-105 and the 1D/24-70. I only got through rounds at 24 and at ~70 at f/16 and ISO 100 before I reached the limits of my attention span, but I honestly could not tell one combination from another, aside from the wider field of view.

Granted, those settings give a lens a good chance to show its best stuff, and I'll continue with some stress-testing at various apertures. I actually kind of hope that the 24-70 shows some real strengths for some uses (other than just low light), because I hate to see it gathering dust:)!

It was nice, though, to note that the 5D and the 24-105 "kit lens" stand up proudly against two of Canon's best in the IQ department!

I hunted down a set of RadioPoppers and I'm on my next spending spree with a 24-70L :D
