Imagine how great this shot would have been if you had full frame!! Did this slice of turkey jerky turn out ok in the dehydrator?

Wouldn't have been that one for sale by a DPCer, would it?

ETA: You will have fun with it. After seven and a half years, I still love the results mine produces.

I love the clunk of the 5d classic shutter biggest thing I noticed from the 20d

All I need now is a wide-angle/Fish-Eye lens, which I was just a bit too late to grab from ace flyman, doh!

No, there was a lineup for that. I found this on Kijiji just a short distance from my house. Came with four batteries, unused grip, strap still in the plastic. I don't think it's ever been outside. I took a blue-sky test shot while at the guys house, and there's a bit of dust I'll have to clean off.

But I heard the chicks go crazy for guys with 5Ds.

A 5D is [(7D-5D)/5D]=40% better than a 7D, and should therefore produce scores 40% higher on DPC.

At last! The 5Dmk"SLIPPY" has been introduced! Welcome to the big leagues, chaincarver!

Absolutely sound mathematical principles there, can't argue with that.

Go for the 12-24mm Siggy. The old version has slightly lower optical performance, and a color cast - but 12mm rectilinear on a full frame body is something you just have to see to believe, and the old one is better corrected in terms of rectilinear projection :)

Thanks Cory, I'm going to have to do some research on a what to get for wide angle. I think I'd prefer to buy used. I think my Sigma 10-20 might fit but have vignetting problems as it's a crop sensor lens, I may even try selling it if I get a proper EF lens for the 5D.

First Shot, ISO 1600 managed a 1/125 exposure in our notoriously dark back room with just a bit of tree-filtered sunlight trickling in through the window. :-)

Perhaps a fellow D&Ber could take that off your hands....

Make me an offer that doesn't include access to my Detroit. ;-P

Reviews sound like what I'm after, found one in Toronto, emailed the guy selling it.

That bad boy is in need of a cleaning!!

sell it and buy a used 17-40L, out of pocket cost will be about $300. bonus is the range is a decent walk around on a crop.

I need ultra-wide to compensate for my shortcomings.

I walked around Toronto this afternoon & took some shots. Just reviewed them on my PC and it made me laugh at how I could zoom into spots in the photo and see such detail. I laughed and laughed and laughed !!! I didn't think it would be like this. :-D
04/22/2013 07:09:55 PM · #22
Awesome dude, I just went full frame too - everything you said +1 I love the detail and the high ISO performance is crazy. Still shooting with the DX for the next couple weeks, I already broke something in the new full frame (sensor cleaning, I closed the shutter on a swab... sigh...) can't wait to get it back though!

OMG! I don't know whether to laugh or cry. :-( That sucks! Maybe you need to bring it to a shop for cleanings from here on in.

How the bloody hell did you do that? Haven't actually heard of anyone having this happen to them before! Really sorry to hear it too, that sucks!

I don't know Nikons, but in a Canon the only way I can think of is if the battery runs out, or you spazz out and turn off the power. 8-O
