Yeah, my dealer guaranteed my 5d3 will be shipped overnight to me and I'll receive it March 23rd.

Is it possible the MP monster that keeps getting mention might be the impalpable EOS 3D?

take some pictures at home and leave them on your cf. Bring the cf to the states (or zurich)
In case they want to see the camera show them pictures you took home on a previous date on the new camera of course .....

You're so wise.

If the 5D3 will display photos from another camera, would it?

EOS Bodies / Re: Locking Mode Dial.

So every time  you want to change the mode you have to hold the centre button down?  So, to change modes is a two hand job?

I've never used this hot topic Canon mode lock button.

I'm in Canada too and was told mid to late March.  After reading all these posts I might have to wait till April too. 

EOS Bodies / Re: Nikon D800 vs Canon 5d3 sample images.
« on: March 05, 2012, 05:51:24 PM »
I'm assuming you are comparing sample images from canon website and nikon website.

D800 images are 20mb jpeg and 5D3 images are 5~10mb jpeg.

I agree that 5D3 images seem too soft, but still I won't change to Nikon just after comparing sample images...

+1 on both points, the d800 looks sharper at 2 to 3x file size.  The 5D3 pics looks worse than my 50D, so I'll assume the samples are just plain bad.

If the 5D3 can't best my 50D then Canon is f*cked.

Lenses / Re: Lens Recommendations - Crop (7D) to Full Frame (5dMk3)?
« on: March 05, 2012, 05:31:50 PM »
The 50L is really a nice lens....when it hits focus @1.2.   I use mine on a 50D right now (5d3 on order).  I know it's focal length is covered  by your other lenses (but f1.2 is in a different world vs f2.8 ), but the 50L and 35L are nice wide open.  The 35L is rumoured to be replace by a mark 2 version.  It would be nice if the 5d3 can help the 50L little.  I also have the 50/1.4 and the 50L has better bokeh than the 1.4 version. 

What would make 3.5k for 5DmIII justifiable for you?

No more 50D iso 1600.

I hate to admit but the Nikon sample images look wayyy better.
I am telling myself that Nikon used better photographer...  :-[


EOS Bodies / Re: List of 5D Mark III Review Links
« on: March 04, 2012, 10:13:43 PM »
I was able to have a bit of a play today and also attended the presentation by CPS, so have some insights from the UK CPS rep. I'm planning on doing a writeup fo rmy blog, but I can upload it here as well when it is done. The card slots on the cameras on display were taped up, as they were pre-production models still, so I couldn't but my own cards in, but I was able to do a quick and dirty comparison with my 5D MkII on the back of the screen. Incidentally, I also had a quick play with the only 200-400 in Europe on a 1D MkIV.

What was your impression of the quick and dirty test?

Links to the new flash and controller unit would be great too.
