TODAY I USED A SIGMA 24-105 LENS ON AN OLD CANON IDs MkIII BODY – GRANGEGORMAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUS
Before Christmas I got the opportunity to purchase an unboxed Sony 24-105G lens but when I visited the dealer he suggested that, as I had a Canon 1DsIII as well as a Sony A7RIV [and a Metabones EF adapter], I should consider getting a Sigma 24-105mm lens.
After giving the matter some thought I decided to go with the Sigma but for various reasons I was unable to fully test the various combinations until today. Before I begin to travel I need to decide what equipment to use and I want to travel light and limit myself to two bodies and two or three lens. I have decided that I will use the Sigma 24-105 on the Sony A7RIV, I have yet to decide what other lens to bring. I have decided that the Canon 1DsIII is way too heavy especially when paired with the Sigma 24-105.
Released in December 2007, the EOS-1Ds Mark III was the third and last of the Canon 1Ds full-frame line. When it was released, it held the title of the highest resolution full frame (35mm) dSLR, with a 21 megapixel CMOS sensor.
Compared to the Mark II, the Mark III added several new features, such as integrated sensor cleaning, Live View (an electronic viewfinder mode) and a larger 3.0″ primary colour LCD.
The EOS-1Ds line was discontinued in mid-2012 with the introduction of the EOS-1D X, a full-frame body which merged the previous EOS-1D line of high-speed professional bodies with the EOS-1Ds line.
