I love my 5D MK III and shoot sports with it, some triathlons, especially the bike portion. It is not built for that and especially with a lot of movement, the AF does not track enough to my liking. Could well be user error, but if you are looking to get sharp action with movement, I think the 1Dx is the top choice, when budget comes into play, I would go 7D MK II over 5D MK III.
5D MK III will be better low light, but not so much AF tracking. I would rather have an image with slightly more noise that is tack sharp than a out of focus one with less noise.
I am rather surprised at this. I thought that focusing was the thing that the 5D3 was good at.
It is. I have owned a 7d, 5d2, and 1d4. My 5d3's have better AF than all of these and it is noticeable. I shoot a lot of BIF and work in low light all the time.
I guess the point is, 5d3 is good, but apparently 7d2 is now even better. I'm curious if someone can give a number (metrics) to how much autofocus tracking has improved in practise. I don't know if there is existing comparison (metrics) how much better 1DX is compared to 5d3 in autofocus tracking... apparently 7d2 should be the best of all these three.
