Yes & No...

Yes & no..

The price is great, however wait about a month or so when people start getting the 5D Mark III in their hands... I have a feeling that the 5D Mark II market is gonna get flooded...

Hi guys,

I have never shot with a Canon DSLR before, and have been mainly shooting rangefinders for the past two years and Nikon SLR/DSLR before that.

I was looking to get a DSLR for more professional work, where my rangefinders were limited (specifically in low light/high ISO) and maybe doing some video work.

Now that the 5D Mark III has been released, are there any actual benefits over the Mark II? As the price for a Mark II seems to be very good right now.

Your help is appreciated. Thankyou.
