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: This camera has a learning curve but it is quite amazing. You need to use good glass to realize it's potential. Crazy good ISO performance. Glad that they improved fps from the 'Mark II. Highly recommend making the move to his camera. The improved 61 focus point is also a nice upgrade as well.
Summary: I went from Canon EOS 60D DSLR with 3 Prime lenses, EF-50mm F/1.4 EF-85 F/1.8, Sigma 35mm F/1.4. I have been shooting 50/50 still and video for about a year and I finally decide to go full frame. I was so tore between 6D and 5D mrk III. I chose the 5D mrk III because it has the advance auto focus system of a $7000 camera, Canon EOS 1DX. The camera is high quality build and it felt good in my hands. Took me a while to get used to with the menu and buttons.
