Dale--If you mount your 5iii on a tripod for macro, be very gentle with any manual focus ring movements. The tripod mount is a weak point of the camera. I bought an L-bracket grip and tie-wrapped it to the right side strap eyelet to eliminate any flex of the tripod socket area. Looks terrible, works perfectly.
