So, we all know the beauty of this camera, and how it may improve many types of photography. I love to shoot wide and indoors (low light), so i am considering to build cash to buy a shiny new 5D Mark IV when it comes out (have to build cash from now to be able to buy it).

The point is... There are many sites and threads on foruns that talk about how capable is this camera. But i couldn't find many with the disadvantages of it.

So, for you, owners, what do you complain about the Canon EOS 5D Mark III? I really want to cover all variables before spending that much money on this camera.

It's a great all-round camera and I love mine, but . . .

A lot of landscape photographers would like a sensor with higher resolution and/or greater dynamic range.

A lot of action photographers would like a faster burst rate.

A lot of low-light photographers would like illuminated AF points.

Wow... The dynamic range is not good enough on 5D M3? It's one thing i kinda expected to be impecable to, like, 99% of photographers. You know, for a mid-range pro equipment.
