I've shot 4 bands/DJs now with the 5DMKIII and I must say, it is very superior to my 7D in most every way.
This shot at 12800 ISO especially shows how with just a little raw processing you can get very clean images out of this camera:
I have not had focusing issues:I agree with some of you saying it's likely the photog and not the gear....
Here you can see some 30+ shows I shot w/ my 7D and then the 4 most recent with the 5DMKIII and see the difference.
The only new lens I got with the 5DMKIII was the 16-35, which is obviously great as well (I used the 10-22 on the 7D). Otherwise, all the lenses were pretty much the same.
I can't recommend the 5DMKIII enough, but obviously 3500 isn't small potatoes.
Low-light is tough, and expecting the camera to do all the work isn't realistic. Human skill with that camera, however, does make for some compelling work.
Agreed, 12800 looks good.
