Excerpt: Nice, solid body, great af, impressive image quality all the way to iso 12800. A bit on the heavy side for my liking. Best digital camera that I have owned, no question. I would also welcome a pop up flash optical trigger controller, but there are good cheap ettl options, so not a huge issue.
Excerpt: I am absolutely 1000% happy with my new 5d Mark III...I just purchased it about a month ago with the kit 24-105mm mainly to take photos for my aruba trip that I just took and to replace my 7d. The full frame sensor is definitely awesome especially for a lot of up close shots or wide angled landscape shots! If anyone has any suggestions as I am new to this forum on what to look at on here please let me know!
Summary: I have been doing mostly landscapes and portraits with this camera and may I say it has been by far the best choice I could have ever made. My next venture is to start taking sport shots to test out the AF system.
Summary: I have owned this camera for about a year now and just now getting around to writing my review, so I can say with 100% certainty how I feel. I have been a Canon shooter for a while and I am stepping up from a Canon 7D. The 5D is a little bit bigger than the 7D but both have similar build qualities.
Summary: If you are on the fence between the 5D Mark III and the 6D, perhaps my experiences will help: This is the second 5DIII I've purchased and I've also owned the 7D, 6D and 70D (all of which I've sold to fund this beast). Take it from someone who has lost hundreds of dollars buying a 5DIII, then selling it for a 6D, and then selling the 6D for a 5DIII again after realizing how much I really missed the 5DIII; there is simply no comparison when it comes to AF performance,...
Summary: I wish Canon would produce a camera without all the video features. It would be nice to purchase a camera that just takes pictures. Leave out all the video stuff that goes unused and give the photographer, "the photographer" something they can benefit from. How about a dedicated mirror lockup button. Include a voice memo function like the 1D series. Better low light focus accuracy. Include a focus assist light on the pro cameras. Wifi on the pro cameras.
