Mark III quicky
May 25, 2007

After receiving my camera yesterday, I took it out today

1. Dinky little LCD panel on top of camera
2. Menu system is better but still not as good as my Nikons

3. LiveView for me is useless particularly on handheld closeups. Using the multiplier is like being on a cheap drunk even for long distance subjects. Don't know how you would ever use it on overhead shots---can't focus it easily looking directly into it let alone at an angle.
4. 3 inch LCD isn't particularly bright when compared to 5D, D200, D2Xs.

1. Button operations--no more holding a turning
2. Lighter weight than 1Ds Mark II
3. Best sounding shutter of all my pro cameras

4. Appears to now be the quickest focusing of all my cameras. My D2Xs had that title for a while.
5. High speed is fun and should be good for sporting events and wildlife.

Pictures are excellent as you would expect (depending on glass used). Pictures taken at 3200 and 6400 definitely need work with Noise Ninja. Pictures at 1600 are the best of any camera I own to date. (1Ds Mark II, 5D, D200, D2Xs).

That is just a quick impression based on 1 1/2 hours of usage.
