Shot with my Sigma 50mm at 2.8, ISO 800
I did some very minor tweaks in ps

Shot with my 100mm macro at 2.8, ISO 3200!
No tweaking, just converted the image from RAW to jpeg

Default The old crappy one. Mark I

I bought a refurb from B&amp;H for $1399. You could never tell it's not a "new" camera.

Default Old and crappy do not describe that camera, never have...

Honestly, the new one creates such massive files, I doubt I have any use for them..

I'm not much of an FPS junkie, though I do covet the 1d3, mainly for the focusing capability..

I was being sarcastic about the old and crappy part. This camera is perfect for me.

Default The focus has been good, but it's pretty soft under 2.5

I'm actually sending it to Sigma today to get calibrated. I did this with my 30mm and had it back within a few days and it was spot on afterwards.
