I also made the jump from a 550D to the 5Dmk3, and man, I don't know how people don't get frustrated with the triple digit (e.g. 550D) dslrs.

I can confirm I am having the same issue.Hi.
I am using a HP Z800 workstation (Just in case it matters - Dual Xeon's - X5570, 12GB ECC RAM, Quadro 5000, Intel 320 series SSD, Intel USB2.0). My Z800 was running Win 7 Pro 64-bit with no issues. I deleted the partition on my C Drive on my Z800, then formatted it, then clean installed Win 8 Pro 64-Bit.
The 5D Mark III is detected fine in Windows, no errors and listed correctly.
I have tried setting the program as 'run as an administrator'. I have also tried running in all the Compatibility modes. I have 9 USB ports on the Z800, I have tried all of them. I have also tried running off a powered USB Hub. None of these things helped, the issue is still there.
I believe this is likely to be an issue with the Canon software and we will need to wait for an update or new version from Canon.
Happy to be proved wrong of course
Since it's work on Windows 7 64-bits, but doesn't in Windows 8 64-bits, I think it's a Windows 8 issue. If I were you, I won't be the first to use any new OS... most OS always have issue during initial released.
By the way, I run the Windows 8 Upgrade Assistant on my Computer and I was surprise to see that it's mark "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional " as not compatible. If "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010" is not compatible with Windows 8, I wonder how the software it's develop will be able to compatible with Windows 8??
Have a nice day.
Yes it detected my kiss x4.Shoot! Have you checked driver versions between the Win8 machine which recognises your 5D3 and this one? May be uninstall the driver and reinstall? Something must be conflicting with it. I guess you probably already checked to see if there was a conflict showing up on the driver... Sorry cant think of anything else.
Correct me if i'm wrong but what's the point of IS in such short focal lengths?
With the release of 24-70 f/4L IS it will be a tough choice for some to decide with the 2.8 non IS version, what do you think?
