Re: 5Dmk3 vs D800E Part 1

I tested in low light D800 vs 1Ds Mark III using 50mm f/1.4 lenses and D800 didn't focus properly. The outer focusing points were the worst. With LiveView Face-Detect D800 focused perfectly though - exactly on the eye.

With 1Ds there is aperture limit setting. This can be used as very good auto-ISO -

set the setting to allow the camera to increase ISO if needed, set minimal aperture that you want to use, then put camera in T mode. Now you will decide the speed and the camera will set the aperture and ISO. The aperture limit is very important, for example if you shoot sports and do not want to go bigger than 5.6.
