4 shots out of 12? That is not very assuring.... I hope that's not the best it can do...
Looooong time lurker first time poster. Have always appreciated the wealth of knowledge on this forum! I notice a lot of people here seem to be having focusing issues with their 5D Mark III. This worried me into performing some tests of my own. After some MFA using the DPP method someone kindly posted (thanks!) I am now extremely happy with what this wonderful camera is able to produce - tact sharp images! At least, to my non-professional enthusiast eye (happy to hear to the contrary though!).

Enjoy your cameras, the 5D III is (to me) perfect!
"OMG! Look at that fat DxO score! OUR CAMERA IS WINNER!! Take that, Nikon!"
I congratulate Nikon on producing a stellar camera in the D800. Now can someone please post sample images taken with both a D800 and a 5DIII, where the D800 made them a better photographer? I have a feeling that I'll be waiting for a long time.Easy to spot Canon images they are the ones with banding in the shadows & with burnt out highlights & very poor reds , I love the Canon red colour its a great red just like to see more shades of red sometimes.
Reds are poor with defaults from ACR in some Canon models, but I found I can tweak settings and get detail without too much trouble. For more troublesome color images, I use DPP, which usually nails the color.
Sorry to show my ignorance, but are you supposed to hear a focus confirmation beep when manual focussing? I've just tried it on my 5DMkIII and ... no confirmation beep whilst manual focussing! Is this a custom setting?
