Nice, solid body, great af, impressive image quality all the way to iso 12800. A bit on the heavy side for my liking. Best digital camera that I have owned, no question. I would also welcome a pop up flash optical trigger controller, but there are good cheap ettl options, so not a huge issue.

I have waited almost a year before writing this review, during which time I have taken over 11,000 pictures with it. The camera is a little daunting at first as it has so many feature to learn. The first and most impressive is the auto focus system. It took me some time and the assistance of a training video to master the system but I have to say that it is so worthwhile. The focus system is awesome. I have used it for many types of shot and it has proved to be very accurate and reliable. The ...

For photo taking this camera is truly amazing. This camera has alot of fun features and full frame camera with Digic 5 image processor. 2 card slots which is a great feature. I like the headphone jack with a big screen for image viewing. The video recording is very good and especially in low lighting situation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzFH93siEKE I took this fun video of me dancing with low lighting in my basement. It's pretty descent. Auto focus capability is very good, solid and ...

I am absolutely 1000% happy with my new 5d Mark III...I just purchased it about a month ago with the kit 24-105mm mainly to take photos for my aruba trip that I just took and to replace my 7d. The full frame sensor is definitely awesome especially for a lot of up close shots or wide angled landscape shots! If anyone has any suggestions as I am new to this forum on what to look at on here please let me know! Thanks

I was lucky to get a helpful assistant to let me play with this alongside a Nikon D800. It has this great thumb wheel which I loved but the focus selection was awkward  for me ,i couldnt imaging trying to quickly move the focus point across all those tiny red squares till i got the one i wantedI would def end up missing the shot and I thought the focus  square on the Nikon D800 Was easier as you have one single square that you move to where you want it.It's big and felt ok after awhile but ...

First full frame camera that I own, I did use 5D classic few times in the past. Moving from 7D to 5DIII it was night and day difference. Huge improvement in focus system, including speed and AF points. Wish they could spread out AF point more around the frame. Noise performance is excellent, when before I could stop at 3200 ISO, now I can shoot at 25,000 ISO and still get usable images. Great weather sealing, build quality is like a tank. Moving to full frame I gained on the wide end, making ...

The perfect camera as in the camera is a tool: you need your tool to work as you expect and want it to. The 5DIII is perfect for this, in the 5 or 6 weeks I've had it I haven't noticed a single tiny thing wrong with it, or any little thing that might bug me. The 5DIII followed 6 weeks of frustrating D600 use (the infamous sensor spot problem, but also live-view issues as well as a range of other niggling stuff). What was interesting about the comparison between them is how the 5DIII is ...
