Slow AF on 5D3?
Oct 11, 2012

I was at an event this evening and got talking to the pro photographer recording the events with a 5D2.  I asked him if he had used the 5D3 and how did the two cameras compare.  He said the high ISO on the 3 was much better with 3200 giving excellent pics, however he said the centre focus point on the 2 was much faster than focus on the 3.  In his own word, "it seemed the camera took some time to decide on which focus point to use".

As someone who is interested in upgrading, (?), I would like to hear if this is common complaint or is it just a setting problem.
