Valentinian: looking at the test.... am I the only one to see that the orbs are still there? smaller, yes, sorrounded by reflexes, but still there....
what do you expect? being able to see the flash's xeon tube?
nathadale: This camera is really nice. It very powerful and always can make stunning shot. I am a great fan of canon brand camera.
how do u know it's great
sh10453: A lot has been said already, varying from praise to sour grapes.
All I can say is hats off to Canon's engineers!
This is a heck of a powerful piece of engineering and accomplishment in this field, and the class of this camera, although it's not for me, or even close to my budget.
Just designing for, and taking care of the heat issues, with such processing power, in a tiny (relatively) & enclosed environment, is by itself a formidable task, that its magnitude and difficulty may only be understood by electrical engineers (EE's).
Good job Canon EEs; way to go! Pats on the shoulders.__________
what a fanboy
smileblog: In Japan, its brochure is already available in a shop. They say pictures in it are so good and expect it'd be greatest Tamron's lens ever :)
can't wait to see a comp..
so what's your consumer advice? Dpreview?
Mtsuoka: I bet someone will say here that he is getting one for casual family shots with the Tamron 24-70
@ Leo, people really love IS, you know
Jun2: 4K basically is about 8M per image. For most of purpose, you don't need to take still. Just take the video and extract 8M still from that.
I am not video expert but video's frame contains more motion blur for smooth motion
if all the frames are as sharp as still, your video will look like "Saving Private Ryan"

smileblog: Looking some of these pics, it seems DR also increase a bit. BTW Why isn't DxO Mark reported yet.
I want to see what DXO Mark has to say too
HowaboutRAW: How are so many in these comments drawing general conclusions about image qualities like colour, sharpness and noise without access to raw files from this Canon 5D Mark III?
Look DPReview posted a couple of real world raws from the Nikon D800, but even then it's hard to draw serious conclusions based upon only four or five raw files.
people just see what they wanna see..
Master Yoda: i guess stabilization isn't possible in these kinds of cameras.
I think it's more like canikon, all depend on the lens
Coguar: For me a Fuji X-PRO 1 offer more, and is better solution for personal use....
another solution is a Olympus OM-D EM5 ...
what you think comparing this and images from fuji ?
@Coguarhow'd you comment on the AF of the X-PRO 1?
BackInTheGame: I have been checking daily for price and availability on this lens. I love VR in the mid-range because I can shoot lower ISOs handheld and still get nice sharp photos. A D800e is in my distant future, and right now all I have are primes for mid-range on my D700, no VR (not a big problem for the D700). I want this lens, if it checks out good. I believe the street price will drop after release, sooner rather than later. If it just has good center sharpness at f2.8 I'm all in for it. Imagine the indoor, casual family portraits you could get with this and a D800e.
somebody use Leica S2 for casual pet shots, I could't care lessjust pointing out the fact, D800e is not the best tool for casual shotsget it?
canderanet: Where's PENTAX mount? I believe many PENTAXIAN would buy this lens
to use with Film Pentax SLR?
Mtsuoka: if it could be even cheaper and "IF" canon announce FF rebel...that would be perfect
let's hope it's 3 years! time to ditch APSC
"Imagine the indoor, casual family portraits you could get with this and a D800e."
I can imagine lots of moire on clothing and soft corners
markcolangelo: I consider Canon Lenses as a long term investment, I stick with the Red Ring...
it's true that these 3rd party lens drop value (as %) quicker then Canon/Nikon/Zeiss
however since the base for C/N/Z is also higher in absolute term you can lose more $
treepop: I hope this is optically as good as Canon 24-70 II. Or nearly as good.
it really depends on what's your definition of "nearly"
if it could be even cheaper and "IF" canon announce FF rebel...that would be perfect
plasnu: I honestly thought this Camera is not really better than my NEX 5N in terms of IQ.
you know at this level it's more like a race car, you really need to explore its potential.
