    I think Canon thinks that F4 is enough with the IS... unless you want that shallow DOF. Anyway, if you really want to, you can do the bokeh on photoshop... if you have the time.

    With F2.8, I'm sure there will be the weight and distortion issues. As is, this lens is rated very highly.

    btw, my friend lost one recently when he was on holiday. Lucky thief.

    it's insane!

    sorry for not making myself clear.

    now my d200 just spanked me.
    if you juz bring 1D3 and 1 lens then 24-105.

    However, you'll feel that it's not wide enuf, not long enuf and when lighting is low, not fast enuf.... really not joking.

    If I bring 2 bricks, 3 lenses, etc... on a holiday, I will be so encumbered, I don't feel like taking any pictures. Then I would wish I just brought a powershot.

    When I travel, it's always 1 body, 1 zoom and 1 prime.

    Everyone has their own style lah...

    Then a 1D mk 3 + 24-105mm (31.2 to 136.5mm) which is worse off in zoom than ur d200 + 18-200mm (27 to 300mm) except you get a constant f4 aperture.

    Yah... good question.
    I think she is not buying the 1D3 for travelling.
    She just wants the 1D3 because she likes it. But since it is her new BF, must take it on holiday lor...
    Then the old BF spanked her...

    I played with the 18-200 VR before. It's got some serious distortion... and the lens creeps. It's good for general travelling, but you will need to correct the pincusion, etc... and then when you shoot down or up, you need to hold the lens so it won't creep.

    but i'm glad i bought a mac.

    comon guys.any suggestions on lens for this sexy canon?
    i know nuts about canon lenses.
    trust me, its so intuitive to use a canon - you won't even need to read the manual.

    i think you've already got enough suggestions for lenses.
    there are lots of holy trinities - depending on budget, weight, shooting requirements etc.

    my holy trinity is
    10-22mm (its an EF-S lens, so won't work on the 1DMK3)
    24-105 f/4
    70-200 f/4 IS

    and you might want to consider the 100-400mm if you plan to shoot the F1 cars from the balcony of Swissotel
    the view from up there is GREAT. you should know better sorry to digress.
    The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt....

    Using it for portraits? EF 85mm f/1.2L USM.

    But warning... it's heavy!

    Who knows? Maybe by that time you prefer Canon already and start to sell your Nikon.

    IMO, if you are more interested in portraits & travelling, the Canon 5D would be a better choice. At least you'll get FF, great for portraits, and it is smaller and lighter than both 1DMK3 and 1DsMK2, easier to carry around when travelling.

    I thought you once wanted to get a 5D??

    Don't hesitate, Canon is easy to learn & use, you can get used to the Canon very fast.
    Just buy

    as for lens, the range of 24-105 f/4L IS sounds good - also has IS (VR :P)
    Don't worry too much about colour.
    It is the camera, not the photographer.

    Canon do not come with the LCD pannel for all model cos I don't think there is a real need for it. Tried the camera yesterday...the -1EV AF ability and 10FPS is something to die for. Ability to adjust back and front focusing yourself is also something very good.

    If can only buy one lens...it will have to be the 24-70 F2.8L !!! I was using the 5D for a while...but in the end still cannot resist the curves of the 1 series!! So end up getting the 1D2 for now.

    With 10FPS, your floating and dancing shots will not be a problem. You will capture twice as much frames as compared to your D200. The shutter life for 1D3 is 300K You can shoot 1000 frames a day for the whole year! (Excluding weekends)

    Don't think Sony is making FF sensor. Unless Nikon decide to start making their own sensor.
