Re: Your choice...

Does anyone know if the A99 will have better dynamic range than the 5DMKIII given the translucent mirror? I need to upgrade from my MKII and I’m really torn on which way to go. Being able to recover dark shadows in LR is a really important part of my editing process because I don't use flash and my subjects tend to have a lot of shadows on their faces. I was able to order the 5DIII from Adorama for $2750 during a one day sale (waiting to receive). I also want to upgrade from the Mark2 because the autofocus really sucks. I like what I hear about the autofocus on the 5D3 but I am a sucker for a good EVF and SWIVEL SCREEN. I'm currently invested in Canon L glass but I will be willing make the switch if there is a noticeable improvement in file quality from the A99 in combination to the EVF and swivel screen. I have scoured the internet and info on IQ from the A99 is scarce.
