Yes...that one looks to be a pretty sweet way to step up to full frame photography. I almost got the 5D III when I bought the 7D. Would love to go full frame at some point...but the main thing holding me back is that I have several lenses that I love...that would not be compatible. Knowing that at some point I'll probably want to go full frame, I've stopped buying any EFS lenses, but I've still got several I shoot with all the time. My 17-55 2.8 is my main 'walking around' lens, and I also love my 60mm 2.8 macro. I don't shoot with my 10-22mm that often....but it, and the other two mentioned...would all need to be replaced.

But I do have the 70-200 2.8 IS II and a 35mm 1.4 lens that would survive my step up to full frame.

Same here. lol The exact same lens but my favorite is actually my 50mm 1.4 Sigma. Enjoy it over my 3 L series. Full frame just seems so enticing when you are in a closed environment. I hate leaving things out of the frame that I could just crop out later if I don't want it.

The price of the Mark III is too steep for me to justify for a side of a side hobby.

Also man, great great build. Go Aggies! biggrin.gif

Im extremely jealous of your sleeving ability. But I guess after all those fans you did you would have to be a pro by now Ha.

Thanks freitz! I'm no pro...but you definitely get better at it the more you do it.

Proof that I'm progressing. But its slow going. It's these little boogers that take more time...





But I'm about 60% done...





Man...I hope I wrote down all the pin positions correctly. smile.gif But just got a call from school and I have a sick kiddo. May slow progress. More later....

Whats with the tiny solder you don't have a large roll? What is that 1/32? 1/16?

It was a large roll at one point in its life. smile.gif I've had it so long I don't really remember the size. But I can absolutely confirm for you that I do not have a high degree of skill when it comes to soldering. But it's kind of fun anyway. thumb.gif

Coming along pretty good! I imagine it gets hard to maintain a color theme with all those splits, but you're doing a great job at it thumb.gif

Wait what? less Ds is better? what kind of sick logic makes 1D the best you can get (or 0D if you want to go that far)?

Hard? Impossible. I've got 28 wires that all cross over each other. But...it's done. Pictures tomorrow.

Yeah....took me awhile to get used to that also. But it's even more confusing than that. When you get into their mid-level line...all the cameras have two digits. So...the 30D, the 40D, the 50D, the 60D, etc. If it has two digits...the higher the number... the better. But if it has 3 digits...that begins their 'Rebel" line, which is the budget line. So...if it has 1 digit....then you are dealing with good stuff...but the smaller the number the better the camera (or at least the more the camera costs). If it has two digits...then the higher the number the better the camera. And now...the Rebel line has gone away from the 3 digits...and is using letters.

I give up. smile.gif

The rebels are called tX or tXi in America, but in other contries they are called XXXD similar to the other ones. I really wish they would make the naming scheme easier
