Nice shots, Nick! As much a tribute to your photography as it is to the 5D3!

OK, so I am back from the wedding. Still copying over the files. I was using the 5D3 and 5D2. Tried to shoot with the 5D3 as much as possible to really give it a run.

As I mentioned before, I love that I can track moving targets with the outer AF points. Nice to have that back in my arsenal. Also love that I can compose using the aforementioned AF points without any concern. I have the cross-type points enabled only and they just work.

Servo mode inside the church went without any issues. Same thing with the reception. Of course the darker it got at the reception hall, the tougher time it had. But it really had to get dark with those crazy DJ lights in order for the 5D3 to struggle.

Tried some higher ISO shots, but I am not expecting much. I gotta check out the files. Looked pretty horrid on the LCD. We'll see.

I found myself getting the controls between the 2 cameras messed up. That was quick eh? The conclusion? I need to get another 5D3.

Ironically, the AF illumination thing that I was complaining about didn't really bother me all that much. I got used to it after a few hours of shooting.

Maybe you should get a 1Dx instead ;):p:p

Fantastic images!

do you usually purchase a warranty extension with your DSLR ?

i'm hesitating about it for my future 5DM3 as warranty is continental not international and as i may leave Europe in a year or 2 to move to North America...

unless i order it from B&H or Adorama but would have to risk paying expensive import duty...


for info, in Europe, electronics come with a 2-yr warranty

Anyone have the 85mm 1.8. With the new AF engine, i may get into some sports again.... I neglected this lens all last year, the 135 is too good. Wondering if I should flip it.

whoa, nice! What settings did you use? I need to play with this a bit because I think it has a lot of potential, but I haven't even touched it yet. Well done.

Most consumer protection organizations will tell you that extended warranties are of little value. Sales commission on protection plans are usually higher than on the electronics they cover (as they make the retailer more money) so that is why they get pushed so hard by salespeople. I have used this to turn the tables on retailers a few times by buying the warranty but getting them to lower the price of the product equal to the cost of the warranty (but I don't even bother with that any more). Even there I can't say that extended warranties are of little value. I would rather just have a lower product cost.

Of all the extended warranties I have purchased I have only ever had to make a claim twice. In both cases by the time the warranty provider was finished minimizing their payment with all the exclusions in the fine print (shipping, taxes, etc.) the cost of the repairs have been about equal to the cost of the warranties. For example, Canon has flat-rate repair costs for a lot of products that are quite reasonable.

I am sure there are exceptions and some people have had very expensive repairs covered by these warranties but if you think about it, on average the warranties have to cost a lot more than the repairs being covered by them. Otherwise the warranty providers wouldn't be able to continue doing business.

****Just to make sure I follow the thread rules I would like to say that the 5D3 is an awesome machine and I would like to have its babies.****

Mine finally came in. Unable to wait, did a lot of indoor shots with the kit lens at 6400. Lots of chromatic noise and pretty low detail... Did some shots at 12800. Strangely, they looked no worse than the shots at 6400.
