I love my 5D Mk III, but for the price it should have been something more.
-Canon had touch screen technology ready a few months later in the T4i... I would love pinchy/zoomy/swipey navigation through my shots.
-Build cost estimates for the Nexus 7 tablet show the Wifi/BlueTooth/GPS chip as costing $11...come on Canon, this the new 5D, INCLUDE IT!
Besides pros, the market for the 5D MK III is well-healed enthusiasts like myself. We live and work in the gadget age and expect high-end gear in 2012 to have all the bells and whistles. The 5D Mk III met my requirement of 5D MK II IQ and 7D speed, so I preordered it immediately. However, I really hoped it would be something next-level. Canon missed an opportunity to have another wild hit and I think that is where better leadership could help.
