...My first pleasant surprise is the battery- same as the 7D! I never bothered to see exactly which battery the 5D3 uses, I just assumed it would be different than the 7D. Very nice!

Wow, I hadn't noticed this! It is great as I have both the 7D and the 5D3, and I haven't bought a 2nd battery for any of them, and now it turns out that I can bring one or the other with me and with a replacement battery Just great.

Congrats, the 5D3 is an amazing hell of a cam, you are going to enjoy it a lot. I also have kept my 7D because -more noise, less DOF and all- is also an amazing cam which will provide extra reach when it is needed.

Enjoy, regards
