My 50D shoots LA/Beverly Hills/Beaches and TO (pics inc. swimsuits)

I had a memorable shoot two weekends ago in LA with Newspaper Man and Danny in the 1DS/1D/5D forum. Took the 50D, the Tokina 11-16/2.8 (which arrived a day before I left for LA), 50/1.2 L and 70-200/2.8 L IS.

I took over 4000 shots during the four-day LA event. We had five models in LA and I am also including the shoot I had with a friend of mine last Sunday----that is with the Tokina, the 35L and the 85LII.

After over 6000 actuations with the 50D I feel once again that I have a 'quarterback controversy' with my 1DMKIII as to which will be my no. 1 camera and which is the backup. I really love the new camera's resolution and the IQ is pretty similar to the 1DMKIII. 50D's AF is pretty fast with the 1DMKIII still havng the advantage in accuracy.

The only drawback I had with the 50D is that it temporarily shut me down (scary part is that it did not register the dreaded err99). I took the batteries out and resumed shooting. So that is once in 6000 actuations vs. 2x for the 1DMKIII in 60,000 actuations.

Please do not ask for 100% crops or full-rez unprocessed images------I am done with pixel peeping (been there done that during my first week of ownership).

I still have tons of pics to look at and post process.

As usual I welcome all comments.
