I was intrigued to see on this page that 8 people "own it", 76 "want it" and 10 "had it". Interested to know more about the 10 who had had it, and had disposed of it so soon, I clicked on the little panel. Oops, now there are 11 who "had it". Maybe the other ten made the same mistake as I did.
"Around back is a 3.2" 1036-dot LCD ...". Either a typo or a very large leap backwards!
Graham Meale: I wonder whether the new battery can be used in the 5D III.
I asked Canon Australia this question and they emailed me to say yes. But when I spoke to them on the phone they said that was an error, and the correct answer is no. Hmmm ...
I wonder whether the new battery can be used in the 5D III.
And will Canon Australia announce a similar price drop? I think I know the answer.
I'd have thought eight images was a bit of overkill. Three would have done me.
Graham Meale: 1. People will do a lot with a small imageGood luck to them.2. Even if you post at low resolution, people will find the full-res image anywayNot if you've never uploaded the full-res image. Most of the images on my website are thumbnail size.3. Some people won’t believe it’s your own photoI don't lose sleep over what people think.4. The recognition you gain from the photo's popularity will not be very fruitfulOK. I'm not here to gain recognition.
It ain't. It never will be.

Why didn't I think of this? I could have made a fortune from all my out-of-focus pictures ...
bizi clop: Please, fix the misspelled title, it says "Samung" :)
But you didn't. (Not on the dpreview home page, anyway.)
I looked everywhere for a way to switch it off. I'm more likely to like it if I know I have a choice.
rrccad: at $299 for a UWA of 10-18, that's going to sell well. going to be interesting to see the MTF's
They look a lot better than the 2.8
Typo: "optical 'custom grip'" presumably should be "optional 'custom grip'"
Nick8: Just one thought, not related to this new great camera in particular…In the film era, both the ASA and DIN standards were used for the film sensitivity.100 ASA was equivalent to 21 DIN.I think DIN would have been a far more practical choice. ISO 409,600 would be equivalent to 57 DIN.Another 2 steps in sensitivity from 409,600 and the ISO will become 1,638,400 vs 63 DIN.Certainly that cannot fit on a dedicated dial :)
I've often wondered how big and cumbersome ISO numbers have to get before we go to a sensible logarithmic scale such as DIN. Can you imagine a conversation "Are you going to use ISO 409,600 or go up to 819,200?" Dumb.
I always carry in my bag (with camera and lenses) a cloth, spare battery and memory cards, lens pen, polarising filter, GPS unit and humidity sensor. That's all.
Couldn't find any mention of this on the Australian site. What a surprise.
Sad, isn't it?
Madame Tussaud will be able to retire.
Of the sample videos, the only one that is much use is the one with the guy standing in front of the tower. In the racing boat shots, most of the action is left to right at infinity or close to it, and the depth of field is great enough for everything to be pretty much in focus anyway. I took a video of a band recently where I was side-on to the stage, with the musicians ranging from three to ten metres away. I tried to focus on each person when they did a solo, and found it quite difficult with the 5D Mark III. I'd be interested to see how the new focus system handled a situation like that.
