I discovered this last night, I'm very disappointed, I havent tried my kenko extension tubes yet, i'll try them later and see. I hope canon fix this with a firmware update
My Kenko 1.4x & 2x TC work fine with my 5D3. Use it with the 70-200 f/2.8L.

What auto focus mode have you been using? I've had mine set mainly on Case 2 and I don't find it jumpy at all. This is the mode made for when something comes, briefly, between you and your subject.

Regarding the 6 fps, you just have to learn to time your shots. I've gotten pretty good about getting the ball in the picture when shooting softball and baseball with only 6 fps, but it's a single shot to get it. I imagine you could do the same in polo?

The 24-105 kit lens is a fantastic lens, and probably better for everyday use because of the longer focal length and the IS.
Agree 100% with this. However, I use my 70-200 f/2.8 most of the time as I shoot a lot of sports, but for around the house, non sports stuff, the 24-105 is great!

A few from this afternoon. Great camera!

EOS Bodies / Re: 5D Mk III Owners - are you happy?

Canon or Adobe, whoever is to blame, it's still a pain having to convert RAWs to DNGs to edit in Lightroom.
Or, yourself.  ;) LR 4.1 RC released a couple of days ago edits 5D Mark III files without converting to DNG first.

Not sure why the 60D would be better, but otherwise it sounds correct. The camera needs some contrasting area to be able to focus.

You can program the 'set' button to magnify, then zoom with the wheel. I'm actually liking this method better than the old push button method as the wheel zooms in and out, whereas before you had to push a different button to zoom out than to zoom in.

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.

All L lenses, such as the 24-105 in the "Kit" comes with a carrying case/pouch... This one is a grayish cloth pouch with a hard leather bottom and drawstring closure.  Should be in there if you ordered the kit.
Awesome, thanks. I checked my packaging again and sure enough, it was in there. That's what I get for being in such a hurry to get it out and setup when it showed up!

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.

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.  >:(
