A couple of questions on 5D3
Sep 19, 2012

Just got my new 5D3! All the reviews are true... the AF is wayyyy better than 5D2 (finally I can rely on the off-center AF points) and the pictures seems to be crispier and have better color.

Two annoyances though:

1) When using the Av mode, I set a particular aperture (say f=2) and set ISO to auto. However, the camera keeps selecting a shutter speed that is too slow (1/30) with a low ISO. I don't mind a higher ISO but need to have much faster shutter to eliminate hand shake and freeze subject movement. Is it possible to specify a minimum shutter speed? (say 1/100 with a higher ISO)?

2) Reviewing pictures seems to be more difficult. 5D2 was really easy... you just press the zoom in/zoom out buttons in the upper right corners. But now, you have to press the magnifying button first, and then use the wheel. I guess the 5D3 is not flexible enough to configure the buttons back to the old way right?
