New to 5D Mark III and New to DP Review
Aug 6, 2014

Just wanted to say Hi. I am new to DSLRs. I purchased a new Canon EOS 5D Mark III a few days ago. I still shoot film and have been doing it for almost 35 years now. I still have my Canon FT QL, AE-1, A-1...all FD lenses; plus other vintage cameras like Minolta, Fujica, Nikon F series (FTN, FE, FM), etc.

So far, I am enjoying the 5D. I've been using very old and cheap EF lenses that I've purchased online for my 5D. The only slightly expensive lens I purchased was the Canon macro EF 100 USM. Other than that, I've been using the EF 35-80, EF 28-80, and EF 22-55, and EF 50mm 1.8. These lenses I know are frowned upon. LOL! I'll probably hold off on getting expensive lenses for now.

Hope to learn a lot from this forum.

Thank you.
