I sold one of mine 5D III for $2575 through CL. My unit came with ligh leak. I have all paper works and BH sale receipt. Buyer was happy with the transaction.

A very interesting read. Canon has made a real breakthrough in DO. I would love a short new 100-400mm for travel. A bit worrying, however, for all those who have invested in series II glass if it all suddenly becomes obsolete.
Too tempting to pass, so I pushed the order button. Looking forward to verify its high(er) ISO performance and how it works on the 200-400 f4L IS 1.4x and 600 f4L IS II lenses. Looks very promising to me, especially the AF system.
Thanks Dylan. I'm assuming once upon I time you had a crop camera. Do you miss the reach with wildlife, or does overall 5d iii just make up for it?
Also lens suggestion? I'm nervous I'll get frustrated with 24-70 as I am used to 15-85 (nice lens btw). Can you use an f4 for stars?
To me, I loved it for portraits if you can get one and work with the focal length. It's amazing for that and for sports.
Are you making purchasing plan for 2015? AFAIK, you said that you have finished buying a new gear for this year.
Otherwise, 200mm f/2 should be an awesome lens.
Re #2: Indoor sports. There is never enough light. I don't own one yet but I've tried one (and shot in gymnasia with even f/2.8 lenses) enough to want one.
For shooting pets, outdoor, wildlife, people, landscape.
I honestly do not believe any Canon or Nikon system currently has anything like flexible spot. I know there are the zone and all points modes, but when you pick a single AF point, as far as I know (and maybe the 1D X is different), only that one point will be used, regardless.
I think you are mistaken. Just to make sure we're on the same page here regarding the 5DIII (that page is p.77 from the 5DIII manual), with 61-pt auto selection in AI Servo, you manually select any single AF (1), and the AF system will track the subject across the array of AF points, switching points (2).
So again, can you please explain what is different about the Sony system?
Well, maybe it's just something up with my 5D III. It's currently in my hands. I'm looking at the top LCD, and it says "AI SERVO". When I look through the viewfinder, I see the AF display for One-Shot AF. I don't see any AF points displayed...I only see the brackets. If I move the joystick around, no AF point shows up or is selected. If I activate AF...THEN I see AF points.
Manual, p. 74:
With 61-point automatic selection AF, you can set the starting AF point for AI Servo AF
Right. It doesn't seem to work on my particular 5D III.
