Tareq, those shots look fine to me. In fact they look incredible!

Perhaps they look a bit "soft" to you because the D.O.F. isn't very wide (likely due to using f/2.8 as the aperture), but whatever is in focus, is freakin' razor sharp! I'm talkin, get out the band-aids, call a hot nurse to stitch me up before I bleed to death cause I've been CUT S-H-A-R-P!!

Maybe they are good, but i feel that they can be better or i can perform better, comparing it to other shots from sports shooters using same gear as those i feel mine is not good.

tareq, i think for that shot, ur 1dm3 did its job as it's quite sharp per pixel level while considering its iso3200! what do u think about the sharpness in terms of ur standard?

If you take the 5D2, the 24-70 and the 135L, you will having a range covering from wide cityscapes to street shooting -- those seem to be the compelling parts about New York. The 1D3 would certainly take great shots, just not as wide for the cityscapes.

I dunno, maybe i need to shoot at lower ISO and slightly higher shutter speed maybe and see, i can't judge until i do that test, but i have feeling that 70-200 is sharper on my 1D2N than 1D3 but the colors and quality i can see on 1D3 is better, 300 is great as i have nice sharp shots so it is fine and if not sharp then it is me.

If you know you have sharp lenses, then Microadjust on 1DIII.

I walked around with my 1D and 24-70 yesterday (midtown / central park). Put on the 70-200 a couple of times, but it was mainly my 24-70. I missed the full frame. This shot was at 24mm and I was standing as far back as possible. Had I had my 5D, I would have been able to get the whole base in frame as well.

Unless you plan on doing a bunch of street photography (candids of people and the like), I'd go 5D / Brick and a faster prime than the 135. Maybe the 35 or 50. If you're going to go into places like Grand Central or St. Patricks, they are pretty dark, and a fast prime will be invaluable.

Name is Peter and here is my gear:
Canon 5D II, Canon 7D, Canon 40D
Glass - Zeiss 21 f/2.8 ZE, Canon 35 f/1.4L, Canon 40 f/2.8 STM, Canon 24-70 f/2.8
L, Canon 85 f/1.2L II, Canon 70-200 f/2.8L IS II, Canon 500 f/4L IS
Speedlite 580ex II, 430ex - Gitzo GT-3541XLS w/ Arca B1
