Excerpt: Purchase the 5d mark iii 6 weeks ago. All of sudden it stopped powering up. Went completely dead. Using original canon batteries. Vey disappointing that after spending several thousand dollars I have received a "lemon".
Summary: This is the worse $3900 plus dollars I ever waisted. All the pictures in auto are too dark even with the flash. I compared it to my 70D and my friends 6D and this expensive camera was the worse .
Excerpt: Please check your bundles before ordering. This bundle had a battery Grip which was manufactured by flash point but it was not clear until the order showed up in the order list. Canceled the order.
Summary: Even though it is less than the USA official release of Canon 5D mark III, it is not the same because you will need to go through their bad customer service and they will keep tricking you saying oh but this not a defect and provide million reasons to run away from the responsibility.
