If true, it's obviously not aimed at the same segment that would be considering a FS700 - this would be aimed at the high end - F65/Alexa/etc. Canon does have a gaping hole in their lineup in this range, so it makes sense.
Perhaps the reason that this shows up with the cap on is because the sensor is actually really really sensitive, more so than on older models, and that is why it seems to show up on the high end gear only.
IE: The same minor leaks as on all gear, but now the sensor can see it.
Dan Chung reported that the 5DIII consistently under exposed by about 2/3 stop compared to the D800. Could this be why?
Mine is experiencing the same issue, too
Made me worry for a while :p
Then, I tested my D3s... the same issue showed up!!
Am I doomed or it's just a negletible issue?
And the Nikon D300 also.
Terrible now I can't take any good pictures with the lenscap on !!!!!
It's a shame they didn't add it since when shooting video it's the quickest way to make sure you have critical focus if you lack a HD monitor on your rig.
Moire and false color only affects a very small number of still shots and video footings
some primes are way better than some zooms. For example yesterday I took some photos with a 24-105 and then took the same with a 400 f/2.8. The ones with the 400 f/2.8 were a noticable improvement both in terms of contrast and IQ.
...However, I think it would be a mistake to conclude that 5D3 doesn't improve on image quality when compared to the 5D2. Better focused images improve image quality and better exposed images improve image quality...
