Well, unless your 5D3 is very special, it only blinks red when it locks focus. What a lot of folks would like is for the AF point(s) to be illuminated beforehand (as they were with the 5D2), so that they can see where the AF point is and position it accordingly before locking focus.

And that's what I really like about my 5D2, 1D IV etc., and which still bothers me when I use my 7D with its LCD enabled viewfinder. I'm surprised that my now more limited photography misses this feature so much. (If only it could be customised...)

Well, here's a workaround that I've found works fairly well . . .
