Re: Returned MKIII
In reply to Phil, Apr 5, 2012

Hi

I have had a mk2 since launch and found it so good I even sold my 1dsmk3 and purchased another 5D2 recently while the super low priced deals were on. My thinking was that they might have increased the mega pixels to over 30 million which IMHO would have compromised the performance. They didn't increase the res by much but in general I'm quite happy still with the IQ and the AF etc.

My only gripe or question to those that can compare both the mk2 and mk3 with regards to shutter sound and mirror slap! is the sound that much nicer than the loud clomp that you get from the mk2? (I'm not talking about the silent mode although that would be nice) The mk2 is just not very refined where firing noise is concerned( probably spoilt by the 1 series I suppose)

But still, as you have pointed out it a big jump in price just for a sweeter shutter sound, if the mk3 was like a Leica sound then it might be worth it.
