wait.. your first camera ever, DSLR wise, and just to start learning will be the 5Dmrk3 ?!?! if i am not mistaken, and that is the truth, isnt that a bit overkill?
Cheaper in the long run than buying a lesser camera and having to upgrade to get what you really wanted later.

I imagine they'll take the lens and the carrying pouch, but that's it.
what carrying pouch? Wasn't one in my kit unless I missed it someway.

Didn't read all the replies, but running dog at 1/500s is probably part, if not all, of the issue.

You're incorrect. All you have to do is download the correct profile to your camera. They have data for most of their lenses, even the old "L's."
Unfortunately, my 70-200 f/2.8L isn't one of them.  >:(

My b!tching and moaning has paid off! Just received an order update from Amazon. Status has been changed to "shipping soon" with an estimated delivery date of March 29th. FINALLY!!!

Order for body only placed at 7:00AM CST on March 2nd

Can't wait :-)
Amazon's website now says ships in 1 - 2 months now instead of pre-order. Probably a good thing you ordered early. Seems the kit was easier to get, I ordered on Monday the 19th and got on Friday 23rd from another store.

Love mine, no problems at all. Upgraded from 50D, so can't compare to the 5D II.

Thanks for the heads up. I haven't yet shot with my sunglasses, but on my 50D, I can't view the screen in portrait mode with them, so a little disappointing to hear I can't wear my glasses with my 5D.

Insurance. If non professional use, you can get a rider on your homeowners insurance with no deductible.

I had a very shady experience with them...  Apparently people don't care about that as long as it's in stock..


order at your own risk.. but this place sounds about as shady as they come.  I'll personally never shop there.
I've used them for 6 years with NO issues at all.

Sounds like a good time to try out the new DLO option in DPP. Export as tiff, then you can convert the tiff to DNG (Adobe RAW format) .

I changed my kit order from Amazon to BuyDig on Monday and it shipped today. Should have it Friday.

Canoga Camera shows the kit in stock, but shipping (other than free ground) is way too much. Of course, if you're on the west coast the free ground might work for you, but 7 days via ground to me.

Either the 24-105 f/4L that comes with it or my 70-200 f/2.8L.

Is everyone really expecting it to be that much different from a MKII?

Might be a few disappointed folks...
Considering I have a 50D now, I don't really care if it's much different from a 5D Mk II.  8)

BuyDig.com is showing 1-2 days on the kit (told me via email coming in Thursday). The body only still says pre-order, will ship when available from Canon.
