Will the release of the 6D affect the 5D MkIII's price?

robbymack:
If anything the 6d release will solidify the 5diii pricing above $3k (us) for a while. If you can afford it the 5diii is a remarkable camera, IMHO it's the best all around camera on the market.

Dylan777:
I have an idea - WAIT for another year or two. The prices on both cameras will drop. Post this topic again, you will get better advices from CR members.

If you need a FF NOW, pick one and buy one.

I've shot a bunch of wedding receptions with the 5D3 and AF assist enabled on the flash and have had no problem at all.  It is a wonderful camera for wedding receptions.  With or without flash, the low light autofocus is excellent.  If it took 3-5 seconds to lock focus, I would have gotten rid of this camera immediately.  I hope you get that problem resolved.

I hope I get it resolved too.  That's why I returned mine and I'm waiting for a second copy.  There is another thread on this that is fairly busy.  Others have had problems as well.  I'm glad yours has worked for you as it should.

Same here. Flawless AF performance in low-light so far with or without flash.
