If an iphone ap can do it, certainly the 5D3 should as well. Camera knows focusing distance, lens aperture, and zoom value. The depth of field button is pretty useless. Give the info as 25-75, for example.

Not sure the camera always knows the focusing distance though. It's my understanding that older lenses don't report this (and I don't know about third party lenses either) so the feature would not always work. That's as far as I know - I could be wrong.
