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.  >:(

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.
