Cropping in Live View?

In Live View you see the entire scene on the LCD. If you press the magnify button (upper right on camera back) it will go 5X then 10X then back to full view.

did you try the 5DIII review on DPR

No its cropped, like 720, as if you added a letter box.

then when i go out out live view i get a full frame photo,

in the menu mode i see a LV shooting area display, with only the choice of Masked or outline

i did change the aspect ratio now to 3:2 in the Live View menu but is this how the cameras ship out of the box? 16:9 aspect ration?

I believe 3:2 is the default aspect ratio.  I've never changed it on my camera, and that is what it is set to.  You can test this by resetting to factory defaults on your camera, but I'm not about to do that myself.  Anyway, looks like you found the answer to your problem.
