I have a $4000 budget to upgrade my equipment. I currently have Canon T2i w/ the following Canon lenses: 50mm f/1.4 70-300mm f/4 - 5.6 L 10-22mm EFS 15-85mm EFS 60mm Macro EFS I purchased the Canon 5D Mark III w/ 24-105mm kit, as I have been lusting after this camera for years for all the great shots that have come out of it. I love the photos especially with the 50mm attached. However, I am a bit disappointed with the noise on my RAW photos - and the fact that they really aren't much better...

I'm trying to improve my knowledge in understanding how sensor technology determines IQ, especially for my needs*. Sorry if my questions are a bit stupid, but I'd rather ask :-)I would be pleased if you could post some pictures as examples to better explain.1- Some people complain about 5D3's "low ISO noise" performance, but I don't understand what it means. To me, low ISO is only used when light is strong enough to allow a particular aperture / shutter speed setting. I have the feeling that...

I'm wanting to add a 50mm prime to my kit. For one reason or another, I'm not interested in any of Canon's current 50mm offerings, so am seriously considering the Sigma 50mm Art, but I've read a few horror stories regarding its AF consistency... So, my question is to people that have/had the 5D3-Art combo - what have your experiences been with the AF of this pairing, positive or negative?

I used the really nice comparison feature on dpreview.com to compare the X-E2 and Sony a6000. I threw in the Canon 5D3 because I own it, to see how the 3 cameras compared. Yes, I'm looking at getting either the X-E2 or a6000. For me, low-light performance is really important. And AF speed and accuracy. The X-E2 looks really nice, and has some nice lenses. Question: The low-light performance of the X-E2 is almost that of the 5D3 and much better than the a6000. That's a little confusing since...

Is it a problem to have it set to 'disable'? Other than the battery dying, would it kill the camera in anyway? My 5D Mark III shut off on me a few times since October with the grip installed. Cleaned the contacts and contact pins of the grip. Set the auto shut off to disabled just in case for troubleshooting purposes.

Hey everyone, Quick question, would constant installation and removal of the grip cause any harm to the grip and camera? Reason why I'm asking is because my camera bag isn't big enough to hold the grip and camera together. So removal and installation is what I'll have to do for the time being, till I get a new camera bag.

Hi there - I am using CS6 shoot with a Canon 5D3. Can anyone tell me what I might be doing wrong, or if I need to tweak some settings but my PSD files seem quite unsharp in comparison to the CR2 file after processing, even the tack sharp CR2 files (the jpeg is understandably not as sharp after compression but the PSD file looks more like the jpeg !). I use windows photo viewer to flick through the images quickly as I find bit of a lag with CS6, but have also viewed the 3 different files in...

Hi everyone - just wanted to let you know (after the fantastic advice from this forum) that I ended up getting the 5d3 + 24-70mm f/2.8 II USM IS + 70-300mm f/4 - 5.6L IS USM + 16-35mm f2.8 Mark II USM and have travelled extensively with the 1st 2 lenses and handled it fine ! I love the sharpness of the 24-70mm and the 70-300mm has been on my camera ALOT ! Even tho the reach for Africa may have been lacking - but thats OK as I knew that would be the case ! In found in Africa I was taking so...
