Canon 20D, 30D, 7D and finally 5D III.

Should have gone full frame from the start but I finally got there.

Good on Ya' - stay safe... But man what an opportunity.

Always take off first lens Before you attach the Second lens.  8)

"ISO matters - 'tweener' ISOs have more or less ISO noise than the full stop settings, depending on camera model.  So, ISO 500 is noisier than ISO 800, while ISO 640 is slightly less noisy.  That's beacuse with a full stop base ISO, the up tweeners are pushed (1/3 stop up, e.g. 125, 250, 500, 1000, 2000, etc.) while the down tweeners are pulled (1/3 stop down, e.g. 160, 320, 640, 1250, 2500)."

I thought this was only for crop frame? I'm not saying I know... Just that I thought I read...  ???

Look, I got mine on preorder and paid thru the nose.... and I've loved every second of it. 
So buy it and don't look back. ;D

Same on 5D 3.  Seems you can only change pictures in zoom after you press play.

Try to enable :Live View Shoot (4th page of the red camera icon in Menu)

When I set it to enable it allows me to see live view screen in manual.  Disable seems to lock out everything but the C123 Modes. 

Hope this is some help.

DO it do it do it. Pull the trigger... Your are going to be so happy.  I came up from the 7D to the 5D III and pre-ordered it to boot. Paid a lot of money and I don't regret a thing. Full frame is a whole different animal, well No S#!+, right? But man I just could not appreciate that until I shot with a FF for awhile... Just a whole different animal.

I'm using Aperture but I don't feel that it deals with Noise very well at all.  Does someone know of a good aperture Plug-In for NR?  I Just don't like exporting a pict to another program for a fix and then back again.  I did try LR 4 but while it dealt with noise very well, I found the rest of the interface Wonky.

Design your own Bike messenger style bag, as flashy or low-key as you want. They have a Camera bag insert that fits the medium size bags. 
I'm able to fit: 5D3, 24-70 2.8 L, 24-104 L and a 70-2002.8 L. And still room for Flash and extras.

Our hearts and thoughts are with you.

I was looking at F-Stop.  Many choices give them a try. has a very nice Gobag or Messenger bag.

5D M III 24-105mm L

I use Aperture 3 and like the functionality and logic of the interface- but then Apple is just more intuitive to me. When I first received the 5D mIII, Aperture 3 did not have RAW support for it yet and there was a free LR4 demo out there that did.  So I got to play around in LR4 with the Raw picts.  Ive since gone back to Aperture 3 just because I fully understand how to use it..... BUT  I did notice that LR4 produced pictures with what seemed like... Finer(?) lines VS Aperture where the picts look good but some how not as... Crisp(?).  I don't have the Camera vocabulary to describe this properly. The gradient filter in LR4 is a wonderful tool, as is the lens correction tool and LR4 seems to process noise better as well. But at the end of the day I use Aperture 3, its easy, intuitive, and logical in regards to archiving albums and projects.
