EOS Bodies / 5D III and EX 580 II flash problems
« on: June 24, 2013, 04:56:19 AM »
 I purchased a 5D mkIII back in April as an upgrade to my 7D, I've been very happy with the new camera until the other evening when I was shooting in some low light situations with the flash.
 For reasons that seem to be eluding me I can't find the setting in camera to activate the focus assist beam from the flash.  It fires with the proper exposures though I have to switch to live view for my auto focus to lock on.
 When the same flash is on the 7D this is not an issue, the auto focus assist beam kicks in as needed .

 Has anyone else had this problem with a 5Dmk III ?

EOS Bodies / I did it, I took the plunge

 Yesterday I received my 5D mkIII with 24-105 kit lens, a 70-200 f2.8 L II and a battery grip. ( Had to tap into my retirement fund to do so ). Having upgraded from a 7D I'm finding the layout and feel of the new full frame is pretty easy to navigate.
 I find adjusting from the viewed perspective from a crop sensor to full frame is going to take some getting used to.  A 17-40 L was my walk around lens on the 7D , it's so wide on the 5D that I guess I'll have to readjust my state of mind to use it haha.
  Happy the kit lens will fill that spot nicely on the 5D.

 I'm having one problem , though the set up is very similar to the 7D I can't quite get it to change focus points with the directional button .   
 I can't for the life of me figure out how it get this to work threw the viewfinder . I'm going the pdf manual trying to find it but if anyone has the short answer to this I'd really appreciate it !
