No, sorry to say, ALL 5D III's stopped working when the 5D IV's started selling.

Why wouldn't the III be a good camera to use "now" ? It will do the same, well done work its put out in the past.


The way i read the question it wasn't if the 5D3 is a good camera still, its more to do with the cost of it compared to the 6DII.

With the cost of the 5D3 and 6DII so close i believe the OP is asking if the 5D3 is still a better buy.

Anyway, my vote would not go to the 5D3 as i feel its output is not as good as a 6DII, nor is its feature set. I loved my 5D3 but it felt old even next to my 80D.
