Re: 5D Mark III photos with flash dark?

i just got a 5dm3 and coming from my 7d, i thought the 5dm3 pics were darker too (well, not thought, they are!).

you might try your bathroom/shells experiment WITHOUT the flash at all and see if exposure in general is still darker on 5dm3.

my experience so far is that the 5dm3 exposes a bit darker but the color is 'nicer' (can't explain how really) and there's no blown out highlights on shots with a broad range of dark and light (compared again to 7d).

having both these cameras is cool though, cuz my new 24-105 that came with the 5dm3 works great on the 7d too and might be a perfect vacation combo (and give me the built-in flash without having to lug the 580ex as well).

anyway, try it without flash at all and compare.  might help.
