Re: 5D MK III upgrade reasons a personal semi-objective assessment

Total agree, the body price of the 5D Mk III being artificially high has meant I have readily recommended that friends who are considering a DSLR for the first time be aware of the weight and size but if happy with that this aspect then either Nikon or Canon would a good choice.

As you can see the price of the 5D Mk III has not made me pro-Canon despite buying the camera!

If I had no lenses what would I choose? Hmmmm ....

The D800 is no doubt a great camera and the 5D Mk III "feels" like a professional tool with a incredible AF system.

Someone new to DSLR photography would be blown away with either camera. Honestly my 60D or a D7000 would be a better first up choice, I honestly prefer the 60D in good light with the 28 f1.8 as it just so much lighter!
