This is the absolutely BEST and MOST HILARIOUS post I've ever read on one of the photog fora...Merry Christmas, adhocphotographer...well as I said in the days before the 5D3s official announcement: "there is joy in the waiting..."  8) And be aware: The 5D3 is an awesome camera! Bought one in August, payed the premium but it was worth every swiss franc! Took some 2.4k photos to date.

Thanks...  i had to share and I'm glad it spread some cheer! I'm loving all the possible fun i could have with this, but knowing my wife, i don't think she wants me to find it...  so all i've done is charge the battery and place it back in the box (good advice chaps)!!!  5 days......  :D

I don't know how to handle this. I am trying to teach my children not to open the Christmas presents before Christmas, although I have admitted to doing that myself when I was a child. Has this spread into the adult generation now?  ;D

My wife came home last week with a wrapped pressie, handed it to me and said you better learn how to use this before we leave for India (we're in India at the moment for a friend's wedding). I had been lusting over the 5D mkIII since it came out but refrained from buying. I unwrapped the box and it was a brand new 5D3 kit.  ;D ;D ;D

Don't know what I did to deserve my wife but I would so do it again and again (and again)! I hope you have as much fun with yours as I have had with mine.  8)

This thread is so awesome.  Congrats on your upcoming present.  It is such an awesome camera and so fun to use.  Four years ago my wife bought me my first DSLR (50D) and it was such a fun Christmas taking pics of everything.  Sounds like you'll have a fun morning.

Now you have to buy a good compact flash card like Sandisk Extreme 32Gb or 64Gb (and optionally a similarly sized SD card). That way you will be fully prepared.   :)

Now you have to be more precise: you mean wife or camera?   ;D

When I was ten there wasn't even Pong.  8)
Correction, there was pong, it just started with 'ping'

I know there was ping pong but I was talking about the video game 'Pong'.

While finding a hiding spot for my wifes present at home (macbook air), i was rummaging at the back of the guest room closet to see if there was space there, i found a 5d mkiii kit!!!!

Well you had better upgrade that Air to a Pro Retina! Fair's fair! Otherwise she might swap the 5DIII back for a 6!

Today (21 Dec) is the big day. The world is going to end and we're all going to die. Remind your wife of this and suggest to her that you open your presents this morning.

Then, pretend to be surprised when the world doesn't end (unless, of course, the Eta Carinae hypernova event happens today and we actually do all die).

So the non-5DMkIII world ends and a the 5DMkIII just begins  :)
