What do you Love about the 5D3? POLL!
« on: November 09, 2012, 01:39:16 PM »
The 5D3 seems like an under-whelming camera to some CR users. Instead, lets flip the conversation on its head.

What do you like most about your MK3 or about the MK3? My Fav's are the AF and In-camera RAW processing.

I love the ergonomics, and the 61 pt focus system in combination with being able to shoot 6 fps, which makes the camera so much more versatile.

One other thing I love about the 5D MKIII is the crystal clear glass LCD....Nikon's LCD are terrible!

2. Silent shutter
3. Dual card slots

I love the autofocus system.  I hated the autofocus on my 5D classic and my 7D was only a little better.  Since I was trying to use prime lenses wide open for the shallow DOF it was really frustrating.

The Mark III makes my old non-L lenses seem as sharp as the L models, simply by sending them more accurate focus data.  Of course the MFA helps a lot too. :)

The new system will allow me to take my photography to the next level... and isn't that why we buy new cameras?
Current bodies:  5D3, 7D, 550D, S100
Favorite lenses: 135 f/2.0 L, 85 f/1.8 200 f/2.8 L, 50 f1.4 Sigma, 40mm pancake, 24-105 L.

I love how the 5Diii will AF correctly, even when using a tricky lens like the 85 f1.2L at f1.2, so much of an improvement over my old 5Dc!

It's not a 1Dx but makes a great second camera for me. I have found that my 1Dx is my go to camera for almost everything. Next is the 5D3. I haven't used my 7D since I got the 1Dx back in August.

The 100% viewfinder, the integrated level, the improved built quality (compared to 5D2), the dual card slot.

Only one single thing (and missing from my 1d X) the silent shutter. It's an absolute joke on the 1d x and on burst possibility either..
