  1. I would not have thought so looking at those samples. Even with the NR cranked to 11 the grain is still pretty high. I did not immediately notice any of the normal shadow ISO banding in the sample though.

    That being said, the color looks great on the samples, but they all seem soft to me. 7D level AA filter?

    Anyone find anything about a dedicated Digic 4 for focus control like the 1Dx has?

    I don't think there is a dedicated Digic 4 in 5D3. The Digic 4 in 1D X uses the new metering sensor to assist AF, that new 100,000 pixel RGB metering sensor is not on 5D3.

  3. What are you trying to do with the flash? On-camera ETTL, Off-camera ETTL, Off-camera manual flash, etc?

    I was in your exact shoes a few months back and almost ordered the Nissin Di866 II, due to less complaints of early demise than YN565, but Canon had their end-of-year rebates on flashes, so I ended up just buying the Canons. There's also less complaints with Nissin 866II regarding complaints of not being compatible with wireless E-TTL triggers of various brands.

    I ordered YN 565EX, I think it is sufficient for my basic needs like bounce flach and off camera ETTL.

  4. I have Yongnuo YN-467 (E-TTL) and YN-460 II (manual). I also have Canon 580EX II and 430EX II. Frankly, both Yongnuo's are every bit as good functionally as 430EX II, and since I'm not all that impressed by 430EX build quality anyway, Yongnuo build quality seems fine to me, at 1/4 to 1/5th the price. Yongnuos also have optical slave, which Canons don't (why not?).

    580EX II is far better built than all of the above but way overpriced IMO.

    While I can vouch for my own YN-467 and 460 II, there are certain Yongnuo models, including the latest YN-565 that have quite a few user complaints regarding early death, etc, so YMMV.

    I'm considering these:

    YN-565, it is 580EX II clone minus wireless master and HSS. It is around $150 shipped but I've also seen those complaints too.

    The other flash I'm looking at is Nissin Di866 mkII $260, but again, there are complaints about quality too.

    The Metz 50 AF-1 $199 is probably good too. Not as powerful as YN-565 and Di866 mkII but seems like a good balance of price, feature and quality.
