    bloody darn good DSLR but Canon went out of their mind appointing a price tag over 3k euros for Europe, i hoped it would be some 2.5K max but... so i took mint 1Dmk3 instead, not FF but crop factor small compared to 1.6..... of course i will miss new gimmicks but may be next year i add FF to my collection. :-)))

    love photos, post more results. seems in camera HDR is not so bad after all? do you think Canon HDR + PP can replace GND?

So post more your experience and photos and happy shooting.

    Again LOL rewatching that video.
    Thanks! It is a pricy little bugger that is for sure! For someone like me who doesn't rely on his camera to put food on the table it is a luxury item for sure. My wife was pretty supportive about it though. We just had our first little rug rat 6 months ago so I think she was a little more receptive towards spending some coin on camera equipment.

    About the HDR, it has it's limitations so a GND is still a useful tool. Take this shot for example, with the wind blowing the grass around the camera starts making all sorts of artifacts. (not that a GND would help this shot, but you get the idea)

    I guess one could spend some time in photoshop cleaning it all up but I don't have the patience (or skill) for that. I'd rather get it in camera anyway.

    1D X is now shipping in numbers here in Aus as of this week (my dealer called me today to see if I wanted one), for now though I think I'll grab the 5D Mark III - as it's now very much a 'mini 1D' and is half the price. I need a camera for the weekend, and I sold my Mark II a while ago. Time to buy.

    One little gripe I have is with the AF system - I really miss having the ability to select only the outer ring of nine AF points tied to the rear wheel. It's so much faster then the multi-controller.

    Also, I think I would find more use for a true ISO 50 than 25,600 - but that's just me.
    Awesome, any problems with the "dark AF points" I can't say it's really affected me. That seems to be the only universal issue people are complaining about.


    I enjoy the video mode too. This was taken in some really horrible light. ISO 25 600 or something like that.

    A few recent ones from me...

    I did a photo booth at a wedding. I put the Sigma 30mm 1.4 (it's designed for a crop camera) on the 5D and got this cool vignette effect.

    I set up in a high traffic area. I like the chaotic results.

    Recently did a photo shoot for the local police...

    Nice review Nick. Have just placed an order on one so will be interesting to see how it is different from the 50D. Problem is now I will have to invest in some more lenses to cover for the EF-S lenses that I have.

    Your shots with the 85 f/1.8 interest me so maybe I will have to "find" one of them in the near future (without the Wife noticing)

    Nice I'd love to hear how you are liking it!... I have the same problem replacing my EF-S lenses too. I just sold my 50D and am working on selling off my EF-S stuff. I thought at first I'd keep both cameras and use the 50D as a second body but I found I never really wanted to go to it after shooting with the 5D. I really like the 85mm 1.8. You just have to be aware of colour fringing on reflective serfaces when shooting wide open. It's a nice small snapy lens though.

    Awesome! It seems like the perfect camera for your type of work.

    Picked it up yesterday so haven't had much of a chance to fiddle with it as yet. Did find one really nice feature that I already like. The ability to save different focus points depending upon Landscape or Portrait orientation

    At this stage I plan on keeping the 50D and EF-S lenses as I'm hoping the Wife will begin to take an interest.
