1 series + 5d2 ftw
I know I don't need one, but I really want one .
kinda a weird decision for a sports guy, no?
blinded by the glitz and glamour, not to mention the hype of the new camera. Canon people are pissing their pants waiting for this thing.
I would have kept the 1DIII and got the 5DII as well
No shit. I wouldn't get rid of a 1DIII for a 5D II though.
I still haven't seen any report on how quickly the 5D MKII drives the focusing motors of the lenses mounted to it. I have heard that the AF sensor array is identical to the one in the original 5D, but that's it.
wouldnt have gotten rid of teh 1d series only to replace it with the 5dmkii. Would have sold mkiii bought a mkiin and saved some cash to buy the 5dmkii.
When is the 5DmkII coming out? I want one!!
You turn into a wedding photographer?
so much for the longer reach on your lenes
I seem to vaguely remember him saying he was moving away from shooting sports, maybe towards PJ work instead?
Can anyone tell me why the 5D MkIII is a poor decision for sports?
I don't necessarily think it's a poor decision.. just strange. How often do you need more than 10MP, and especially 21MP? It would be a nightmare to edit, especially on really tight deadlines. You've gotta assume the focusing is a bit better on the mkiii, and 10 FPS v 4.5 FPS seems like a big deal as well, though I never shoot like that so I'm not sure if it's actually a big difference.
3.9fps compared to the 1DMk3's 10fps. I lost a lot of shots at a local airshow shooting my 5D @ 3fps compared to my buddies 40D @ 6.5fps.
Because you can't shoot a camera that just entered the development stage.
No. Most professional agencies that cover sports shoot with a 1DsMkIII. I guess theyre just doing it wrong?
Hardly. Its a shame you dont know what youre talking about but I still like you so I wont hold it against you.
Id do a lot of things if money didnt matter
Go to even less of a camera? No thanks.
The 5D MkII has a higher density so Im actually getting more reach
Nope. Still covering sports.
Im sorry, but thats because youre not very good. FPS is for remotes.
More cropping needed to get closer. Won't affect image quality. What's the RAW buffer like on the 5d MKII. Probably not as good as the 1dmkiii. Not to mention the 1d is marketed as a sports camera and the 5d is marketed more towards landscapes and portraits. Don't forget autofocus too.
