What do you think I shoot landscapes with?

My old 5D mark I. Of all the Canon gear I unloaded a few years ago, I couldn't part with it.

So if the original 5D is a landscape camera, then why isn't the Mk III?

There's the $64 question. Why did they change the target audience for the 5 series?

But the Mk III is still better equipped for taking landscape shots than the Mk I or Mk II, surely?

However, I agree the target audience has changed. They've focused on making it a multi-purpose camera. As to why... well, a lot of people have been crying out for a 3D. This is it in all but name.

Personally, I'm quite happy with a multi-purpose camera. It's exactly what I wanted. But you can't please all of the people all of the time.
