SeeRoy: Can I run this beta in parallel with LR4?
Yes, but you will have to create a new catalog in LR5
JohnnyWashngo: Whilst I do love my 5Dm3, I am a little annoyed that Canon didn't add GPS and WiFi built it like they have done with this 6D. Both features would be really useful for the photographer and should have been a no-brainer to add.
If I remember correctly, they also neglected to add some of the good stuff that made it's way into the 650D, like built in speedlite transmitter.
So, like I said, I love my 5Dm3 but wish it had some of the missing features that made there way into cheaper bodies.
Canon couldn't add built-in gps and wifi to the 5DIII because the body is entirely made of magnesium alloy, which prevents an internal gps receiver to work properly
rrr_hhh: No fully articulated LCD, plenty of features I don't need, but 100 gr. more than the 5D, I'm really deceived. I want a full fame but in a lighter body ! I don't need the fast shooting abilities, I don't need the weather sealing, but I need a lighter body that I can wear with me all the day !!
When will Canon stop offering those monster bodies ? When will they understand the needs of the hicking and travelling photographers ?
What a deception !! I'm now seriously considering selling all my Canon gear. Really I don't understand why Canon always has to make heavier and heavier gear : come on Canon, the population is getting older and photographers are getting even older; with our used backs and our used necks, we need lighter cameras, not heavier ones, we need mobility, not rock heavy cameras. We need a full frame with great IQ, but with the weight of a D60 or of a D600. I can't believed they have renounced to one of the biggest advantage of the 5D and made it even heavier !
Good reply rrr_hhh. Other people refer to insult. I am also a mirrorless cam user, but I want a FF camera for DR and high ISO capabilities. I am hoping one day one manufacturer releases a mirrorless FF camera, or a DSLR lighter and smaller than these monsters packing functionalities and capabilities I am not going to use
KonstantinosK: Lovely little machine... For those who only need one versatile lens, like say a 18-200mm, and can't stand the bulk of a DSLR, it's perfect. But it is almost double the price than the already great NEX-5N and I wonder if that much extra resolution, some more control dials and an integrated EVF and flash worth that much extra money. I'd keep it simple and go for the NEX-5N instead.
What mirrorless has to do with the lack of AA filter?
epo001: Bet it will be a long time before a Japanese company hires a Chief Executive from outside their cosy circle. Woodford simply didn't realise he was supposed to follow the code of omerta (or is that the Mafia?)
In Japan is the Yakuza
