5D III: First snapshot and Impressions
Mar 27, 2012

Got my 5D the other day

I am going to test the camera with some portrait session in the next days

General impression:

-In the hand it feels like a real pro camera: the body is very solid with a very nice grip.... way better than the 5D classic and than the mk II

-The AF is just stunning,I can finally shoot wide open with the 50L and 85L using any of the focusing points and even in low light situation the results are stunning!
It really gives a completely new life to those lens!!

I have the feeling that wide open the image are a bit sharper than the mk II with the same lens and aperture.....
maybe the weaker AA filter plays a role in to that

I find the image quality of Portrait at low iso to give a bit more "silky like" results than my 5D mk II

100% Crop

Thanks for listening
