Sweetest Xmas Gift!

So, my wife is officially the best wife ever!

She got me the 5D MkIII for Christmas! It arrived on Christmas Eve, but she didn't let me touch it till Christmas morning...

We got it from Amazon and were able to get a 6% rewards and 5% cash back from our discover card, and it was a pretty decent deal...

So far, the camera is proving to be totally awesome... AF performance is better than my 7D, and my 24-105 seems to be much sharper on the MKIII than my 7D. My 24-105 on Full Frame is THE perfect lens... it's wide and has a decent amount of reach...

the image quality is a lot better too! I did some shooting at iso 800 and 1600 and it was cleaner than my 7D at iso 400...

So far I'm loving this camera...

Good to hear! We're working on 4 decades. It only works if you support the others hobbies

So does that mean your pics will be even better? Hard to imagine.

Congratulations on the new camera. I picked one up earlier this year and love it. The versatility this full frame offers is nothing short of amazing. And I couldn't agree with you more, your wife sounds like a real keeper . Looking forward to seeing some pictures very soon.

5D Mkiii - Carey's Photos

Here's a link to my smugmug site... i uploaded a handful of pictures there, most shot at iso 400 or higher...

the three pictures of my son in his pack n play was an high iso test... first a iso 800, 3200 and 6400... pardon the white balance... at the high iso, the lamps in the rooms started to shift the white balance to the warmer side...

my 24-105 definitely feels like a totally different lens now... i haven't even tried my 70-200 2.8 is on it yet, but will get to that soon... sadly, my 50 1.4 is a bit off, it seems like it's front focusing a bit, so i will need to micro adjust it on my 5D...

Yes my wife is definitely a keeper.... We've been together for 9 years (as of this Christmas), and have been married for 4.5 years... She's definitely been supportive of my "Hobby" She bought me my first DSLR, a Rebel XT, then ok'd my 40D, 24-105, 17-55 for our European Honeymoon, got me a 70-200 for my birthday... 3 Christmas' ago, she got me my 7D... Last Christmas, she got me my Studio Lighting setup, and this Christmas, my 5D... LoL, and I've been supportive of her Jewelery "Hobby" lol...

::edit-My wife asked me what makes this camera better than my 7D... after rambling on about improved autofocus systems with 61pt af, high iso performance, full frame sensors, etc... I realized there's its somewhat pointless to someone who's not into photography to quantify the improvements, or understand what advantages are gained... I had to show her some of the pictures I took... at least she sorta could see the difference... :P

Well congrats on your new toy, I'm sure that you're loving it by the sound of it...
And it looks like your wife really is supportive of your photography...

I know what you mean about explaining new gear, my wife always say, "Well, what does this do better than what you've already got",
I then explain it to her and she goes "Well OK", but really doesn't know what I've just said... LOL...
But we've been married 40yrs, so I'm guessing she knows me really well by now...
