Prices usually go up a notch right after the rebates end. With the world in tough economic times, that might not happen.

If you do not use the additional capability of the 5D MK III, you will see little difference, if any. A Brownie 620 film Box Camera at f/8 will work just as well in a studio as a 35mm SLR.
I've used both 5DII and 5DIII in the studio and within a studio environment I can find literally NO difference in the cameras, the upgraded AF system is useless since I shoot manual focus 99% of the time and the 5DII AF , however ancient, is still perfectly adequate. This is why I have not upgraded to 5DIII - it's almost a pointless upgrade for studio shooters - definitely pointless given the price AND the fact that the 5DII gives identical results. Currently, if I were to upgrade, the only way to go is medium format but still the 5DII is going to be a workhorse for a few more years I think - It's a bloody fantastic camera.
You cannot push to anything external from the camera (unless you have the wifi accessory). A computer with the proper drivers can pull images from the camera. They are available for PC's and Macs.Canon cameras do not write to a USB Hard drive thru their USB port, if thats what you were asking about. The 1D X has a network port, so if you have a self powered drive with a network connection, that would work.
That is what I was thinking. Well they transfer to a external drive or does it have to have a computer?
Wondering if someone can help me here, I have only had my 5d3 for about three weeks. I tried to do a few macro shots today, (Close ups of flowers) using the kit lens.The 24-105mmL kit lens is not a macro lens, so if you get too close, it will not achieve sharp focus and if your camera is set to single shot, the shutter will not release.
Autofocus was spot on looking through the view finder but I could not get the camera to take the picture, nothing happened when pushing shutter. If I dropped to manual focus on lens or zoomed further out it worked fine. I haven't done much Macro before, is there something I am missing?
Or was the camera telling me I was too close even though it looked ok?
