Dear Co-Canon-DSLR-Great-Photographers in here,
A Question to all of you here in this Forum for EOS Bodies, who hopefully are today very happy and also very satisfied owners of the newest Canon EOS 5D Mark III,
Please .... I wonder if I could ask you something about your so-far-experiences-from-field-using, that I would appreciate your opinion very much and to be able to reading some of your spontaneously thoughts/experiences/impressions (specially compared to the old 5D Mark II) about,
if you do consider me to have done a reasonable wise choice to lately place an order today in order to purchase the newest Canon 5D Mark III, after months of giving this decision a constant pros and cons compared to the two DSLRs I already own that is my 5D Mark II (since August 2010) and 7D since May 2011, that I purchased around May 2011 for better reach to my EF300lenses,
by making an order today (2nd Nov 2012) for a brand new Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR?
I have been considering this purchase of the new Canon 5D Mark III, for a long long time until now - because I just see that my recent interest in trying out the - for me demanding bird-photography (I have been a bird watcher since my early age/childhood) and also in doing some macro photography under windy circumstances, and fast moving and shy butterflies, has demanded from my full frame camera (5DMark II) a much much better and faster AUTOFOCUS ability that I think the most 5D MarkII-owners sometimes lacks from their DSLRs.
(I have in the process also considered the 1DX for some time too - and the also reading about the 1D Mark IV - but then again - also doing a lot of landscape and allround photographing, including even super-wide-angel lenses; I have come to the conclusion in which I now can find rest: that a full frame DSLR is the optimal choice compared to use instead the APS-H with crop-factor 1.3 X.)
So - my simple question is - do you think, who are here reading this my simple question of some degree of doubt of my own conclusion, and who already owns and using the newest Canon 5D Mark III - maybe either pity me for such (unthinkable wrong) a purchase/investment?
or maybe you could perhaps instead giving me at least a small congratulation, to the newest technology and overall benefits by being soon (God willing) a new owner to a brand new Canon EOS 5D Mark III with the "light-leak" issue solved, during this month of November 2012 AD?
....or should I have waited instead to purchase the coming new DSLR´s, from Canon instead or even purchase the new 6D to start deliveries during the December 2012, or even going all the way to purchase the last 1DX?
(The next wish-purchase will be one of the new super-tele-lenses in order to have the right equipement for wildlife and bird photography - and therefore I will need a better AUTOFOCUS function also from a decent fullframe DSLR from Canon !)
So - do you give my thumbs up? or maybe thumbs pointing more horizontally? or maybe even having the thumb pointing all the way down, for my decision to buy the newest 5D Mark III, with for example more quiet DSLR by using the silent mode in nature or in churches etc and other nice things to be used that is NOT in the older version of 5D Mark II?
.....still feeling a bit ...semi-un-sure about my order from today!
Wishing you all - All the Best and a big THANK for every thought short or long, to you all in advance!
