I upgraded from a 5D Mark I to a Mark III over the weekend! AMAZING improvement over the Mark I

Here is me outside the camera store with my new toy!

You are going to love the 5D Mk III. You should immediately notice the better autofocus system, higher ISO settings, and HDR feature.

I shot a Creighton Basketball game about 2 hours after I got it and then shot a UNO Hockey game about 2 hours after that. The ISO and Autofocus was great!

I turned on the HDR feature last night and shot a skyline shot with it. I didn't realize the output from those HDR Shots were going to be in JPG format.

I ended up using one of the RAW files and came up with this photo:

10-D, 20-D, 40-D, T2i, A400 and A1200. You might guess I'm a Canon guy? :D

Favorite extra lens is discontinued 35-350L like it so much I bought a backup.

Normal walkabout, chasing, vacation, on the T2i which I carry most often, is a 28-135.

Hmm. Back then I was using a Nikon D300 with a D80 as back up. Now I'm using a Nikon D7100 and a D5200 as a back up camera. Lenses are Nikon 17-55mm f2.8, Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 VR, Nikon 80-400mm VR, Tokina 11-16mm f2.8. Big story is the amount of flash I now have, something like x8 Nikon SB-28 flash, x8 White Lightning X3200 monolights with battery packs, and x2 Nikon SB-900. For the past two years I've really gotten back into film cameras, but only those made between 1900 and 1955. I have a Rolleiflex MX (1951) that I dearly love to shoot, and a Leica IIIc (1942) with Leica Elmar lenses 35/50/90mm I use regularly as well. I've also been shooting early (1900-1930) Kodak Brownies a lot lately too.

Not sure if too much has changed other than my rr shoots have become really rare... for those i sold the 28-135IS and replaced it with the 24-105IS. It's a bit sharper, clearer and the IS is a bit improved. Still using the 50d.

I have a Canon Rebel XTi that I bought refurbished in 2012 along with a zoom lens. Any suggestions for an upgrade?
If you are looking to upgrade out of the Rebel series, the 70D would be a great upgrade. You don't say what lens you have, but for trains, the newer 28-135 kit lens is also pretty good. As with everything with camera gear, it all depends on what you want to spend :rolleyes:

I can't believe I didn't see this thread a year ago!
I have a 5d2, 5d3, 7d, and a 1dIV. For trains I mainly use the 7D with a sigma 18-250, which I keep in the car almost at all times, and the 5D3 and a big zoom, (used to be the 100-400, but now I use the Tamron 150-600) for close up shots.

Have a serious discussion with yourself about the type of photography you do or would like to do. For example, I have spent a small fortune on cameras and lenses for photographing birds. I could have gotten by with much cheaper and a lot less equipment if I were only going to photograph trains, landscapes, and my family.
