pbstewart1960: Spent last Saturday with my new 5D3 shooting indoors with no flash. Took over 200 pix. The high ISO performance of my 5D was very good. My 5D2 was even better. The 5D3 looks a full two stops better than the 5D2 to me. The shutter and autofocus are noticeably faster. Wonderful camera.

(I downloaded the Adobe Camera Raw 6.7 RC. Yes, the raw images are wonderful, too.)

The shutter sound is different. I'd say it's perhaps a little quieter, but not dramatically so. However, there is a silent mode which, while not actually silent, is supposed to be nearly so, according to some reviews. I haven't played with this feature yet, as it also slows the shutter down slightly, and I have yet to be in a siuation requiring quiet.

As for the high ISO raw files, they are impressive and look a lot cleaner than Mk II raw files at the same ISO.

No, I shoot almost exclusively raw. However, when I get a new camera, I shoot raw+jpeg for a while so I can campare the two. Plus, the officially released version of Adobe Camera Raw doesn't support the 5D3.
