Conclusion: I would give it 5 stars but the following will explain why I haven't. I do LOVE this camera but have a lot to learn. The purpose of this is not to get into the technical aspects of the camera but to let it be known that it will not work with Apples new OS, Yosemite.
Summary: This is a review of the 5D Mark III package DavisMAX sells: I'm posting here so people know specifically what they're getting with this package. I received an opened box 5D Mark III kit lens package with the lens, manuals, and warranty card removed.
Excerpt: As a 25 year professional photographer one one that has owned nearly 2 dozen Canon professional digital cameras, I can honestly say, this is the worst camera I have ever owned. If you rely on the focus points, don't count on them, as you won't be able to see them. They don't show up.
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.
Pros: - Lots of Features - Nice Photos - ISO speeds
Cons: - Price - Flimsy / Fragile joystick Beware with the joystick. If you search you will see there are people complaining about joystick button falling off the camera.

Excerpt: This is a great camera if you use it in day light in AI Servo mode. I am one of those few people who always have the camera in AI servo mode (and back button focus.. actually back button focus is not relevant to my reviw here)I shot a few Track/Field events and it is great since there are various...
Pros: Fast / Accurate Auto-Focus, Good Image Quality
Excerpt: I'm having a bad experience with this camera. when I put the ISO on 12000 and above, I have this horizontal brown colour appears on the middle of the picture. I sent the camera to canon itself to fix the problem.
Excerpt: I can not see the difference in quality from the 30D and the 60D and this Mark III. The self timer seems to be on and there is a long 5sec delay between taking the photo and the click. And I cannot find out why this is happening.
Cons: Lag / Shutter Delay, Noisy At High ISO, No Viewfinder, Poor Image Quality, Poor Image Stabilization, Poor In Low Light, Short Battery Life, Small LCD Screen
