Although the advertised flash sync speed for the 5D-III is listed at 1/200, it seems as though Canon-provided sample photos indicate a flash sync of 1/250 according to the exif info in the image:


Certainly not violently important - but I just found it interesting.

If using a Canon speedlite, one can sync at any shutter speed using the high speed sync. With non-dedicated, external flash, be certain that the true sync speed is closer to 1/125.
