    the comment wasn't specifically directed at you, but I think it stands - seems to me there's a whole heap of people obsessing over the number of focus points, dynamic range, noise levels etc, and a significant percentage of the number gazers probably never move off the center focus point or shoot RAW.....

    I'll be sure to let my clients who have been using Nikon bodies successfully for very long timelapse projects in extremely unforgiving circumstances that they are doing it wrong.

    I have done many a time lapse with my DSLR. Some for over 8 hours.

    It doesn't make it the right too for the job.

    I mean there are better suited, more specific tools for the job, that don't wear out.

    If you shot timelapses that were 1 shot every second, for the 5D2 you would need a shutter replacement after roughly 40 hours.

    Seems like the Mark II will still be available and the Mark III will sit between that and the 1DX...

    What would you recommend?

    I like doing short time lapses but hate its time consuming taking the pix out and compiling them all together while the new nikon does it all. Quite nice feature to have.

    That speedlite looks good.. finally built in RF!
    hmmm time to sell my 580 i think

    According to camerapro, the australian RRP for the 5D3 is $4,399.

    RF in the flash is nice, but without building it into the body as well, doesn't give me any reason to change from PW.
