comment 5D Mark III or 6D
Is there something specific that you want that will be gained from these cameras (e.g. you may want to print big and so need those extra pixels, or you may be shooting in low light so the better ISO handling may be a big advantage). Giving specific needs and wants will help differentiate between the cameras, and may make the question slightly more answerable.

comment What are the pros/cons between straps and monopods?
@mattdm It does seem a bit like that on first impressions but if you analyse what erotsppa is asking then you would find that the question makes sense because a monopod can assist in making it easier to carry a camera. e.g. by allowing the photographer to rest while taking photos or a photographer can use the monopod as a walking stick (with light enough camera). It is also easier to carry a heavy weight when the weight is balanced, which a monopod can assist with if carried the right way.

comment Would a Nikon D70 with 70-300 lens be adequate for photos of my kids' sporting events?
It all depends on what type of quality you want. And also be aware that the D70 only accepts Compact Flash cards, although they are easy to find, and not very expensive (about the same as SD for the same capacity, although the CF cards usually have faster read/write speed)

comment Licensing for wedding photos, to protect photographer, but allow freedom to clients?
Maybe a clause in the contract saying that if you or anyone else edits the photo in any way then the copyright infomation includes a statement that says it was edited by someone other than the original photographer.

comment Do extension tubes work well with the AFS VR micro nikkor 105mm f/2.8G?
Welcome to Photo.SE. This answer is a bit brief. We are looking for more detailed answers that explain what you are talking about, maybe add what you do and don't like about them, or what works well, or what they work 'fine' for.

comment Why can't I get a decent white background with product photgraphy?
If you want to have the same effect as a arrow aperture you should not have a long focal length. A long focal length will decrease DoF and a narrow aperture will increase DoF.

comment Why does the LCD show only black in Live View in manual mode on T3i, until I half-press the shutter?
Have you previewed your photos? If they are black or dark your problem is almost certainly that your exposure is not bright enough.

comment How can they take pictures of the Milky Way?
We may not be able to observe our galaxy from the outside but we can observe other galaxies that we believe to have a similar structure and so we can extrapolate what our galaxy would look like.

comment Do all types of paper of the same weight have the same thickness?
Indeed, I agree. But it could have been slightly misleading. The new statement is better.

comment Do all types of paper of the same weight have the same thickness?
"BUT they do all have the same area for a given weight." That statement is a little confusing. My first interpretation was that all paper of the same weight has the same area.
