Test Shot a 5DmkIII for the first time.
Oct 16, 2012

I have had a 60D for not to long (coming from a 30D) and have come to the conclusion that I want something more advanced. I was intent on upgrading to a 7D. Well that changed today. I drove out to a store that stocks all the high end dslr's. All my local stores just have rebels and 60d's. I've held a 7D before and was impressed and was going to give it a test drive and then just for the halibut I had the salesman take down the 5DmkIII for me and I was floored. Wow, what a robust feeling body to hold. It really impressed much more than the 7D, so much so that I'm poo pooing the 7D now. I know the specs of both bodies but the price difference is huge. More than double. For all those that went the extra mile and got the 5DmkIII over say a 7D, was it worth the extra coin?
