Is there a better way?

Consumer DSLR sales will never die because the professional market will never change all the way over to mirrorless. Consumers just want to look professional. The average consumer is an idiot, they will buy a DSLR because that's what the pros use, they will never take off the kit lens and keep the camera in auto, then upload the photos they take to facebook where the compression will make all cameras look pretty much the same.
So I updated my 5D3 with the new firmware and now I can't seem to select any focus point groupings other then: "Single-point AF. I can move the Single-point AF around but I can only select the "Single-point AF" ( the little soft cornered square). I have poured over pages 72-73 of the manual but nothin'
Am I the only one?
Do a camera reset after installing new firmware, and then enter your settings again.
I have CS 6 ...Good luck.
Re the photo above with the 400 f5.6 and 7D, please don't think that photos taken with this setup are reflective of that picture, which is a very poor shot.
Perhaps the contract said ALL shots.... It could be that the photographer took 2000 shots, a dozen or so are bad... it could be a 99 percent hit rate... it could be .1 percent hit rate, we don't know.
What I wanna know is why did the photographer send them all his shots? Did he not even look at them at all? That in it self is proof he's no pro. Idiot. Talk about shooting yourself in the foot.
I agree 100% with the original author: the 5DIII is the best overall camera I have used - an excellent balance of image quality, functionality and size/weight. I have had no problems with the camera at all (or, for that matter, any previous Canon DSLR).I'd be very interested to hear from other 5DMkIII users as to how much noise reduction they routinely apply to RAW images shot at base ISO and how the 5DMkIII compares with previous bodies that they have used in that respect.
I very surprised you need NR at base ISO. I don't normally touch the luminance slider until 6400, if then. The luminance noise performance of the 5DIII is the best I have seen from any Canon camera so far.
However, you can not do the same with the chrominance NR. I usually leave this at the default (25), but reducing it to zero gives noticeably noisier images even at base ISO. This is not really a problem, since unlike luminance NR there seems to be negligible smearing.
You might want to check if highlight tone priority is enabled as this will increase the noise level a little.
