Congratulations on your new DSLR. Isn't it nice to get the DSLR purchase out of the way so that you con concentrate on taking pictures and figuring out what lens to buy next?

I was curious:

Which lens did you have with the Nikon?

24-70, 14-24, 85g

Which lens are you getting initially with the 5D III? What do you plan on buying in the near term?

50 1.4 and probably the 24-70i while they are still available

The hit larger files have on post processing definitely can be felt. While on vacation, I use an old dual core laptop. Painfully slow with Canon's RAW files and so when I have the disk space, I shoot RAW+JPEG so that I can use the JPEGs to judge initial composition and do some quick sharing. Given my needs in a laptop, a MacBook Air or UltraBook best suits me. So I can see huge file processing to continue to be an issue.

At home I'm currently trying the new lens correction features in DPP that results in much larger CR2 files. Ouch on the disk space increase. Looks like I'm going to have to expand my 24 TB file server sooner than I anticipated.
