shhhhhh! don't let canon find out, but i feel the same way. I couple little tweaks and i'm good. they won't be selling me another camera anytime soon. currently I have a mk3 and a mk... 1 i guess, and at wedding jobs i use the mk1 just as much as the mk3.

You know, even owning 2x 5D3's, I still kinda prefer the soft, muted colors out of my 5Dc. It's the strangest thing. Check out this thread.

Well let's hope they keep interest in making the 5D MK3 capable of focusing at f8, that's my main interest right now

Focuses just fine at f8 with a 400mm f5.6 and a Kenko 300 DGX 1.4

No need to wait.

 ;D yes, and that one hopefully will do ISO 51200 kinda like ISO 12.800 or16.000 on my current 5D3!
No, seriously, no need to upgrade till the overnext new 5D body. Hope my insane high ISO dream comes true.
But having read these threads about sensor tech by the experts here in the forum, I know it takes a while to get there...maybe the wait will be forever. Cheers, Pedro

 Wouldn't it be something if after updating to the next firmware the Magic Lantern logo popped up on the screen .
 There'd be some real upgrades , that's for sure.

It's supposed to add clean HDMI out and perhaps other video features!
Hope it arrives soon.

Wasn't spring 2013 also the time for some major new firmware upgrade for the 7D or did I just miss it?

Nope!  Just the 5D Mark III... ;)  7D already had one!

Nothing announced officially as of this post.

I did a google and canon.com search for the update -- and  went to http://usa.canon.com/cusa/about_canon/newsroom?pageKeyCode=pressreldetail&docId=0901e024806daf9c

and all it is, is an old press release. 

At least they didn't put anything up that indicated that it would be delayed.

So I am still hoping for April. ASAP!

Welcome everyone, I am a long time reader of CR, but never posted before.  Been shooting photography since my dad first let me use his old AE-1 decades back.  Though I haven't been as active as I used to as I've taken up another hobby (Triathlon) which is just as expensive, if not more so, my triathlon bike was $4K.  Training for Ironman is a huge commitment of time that rarely lets in other activities.  However, from time to time I do some action shots of my friends during a training ride while hanging out the back of a pickup truck.  I've never been happy with the AF of the 5D2.  So, with a nice return from Uncle Sam I order the 5D3 last week.  It just came in yesterday, but I didn't get to play with but for 5 minutes last night.  I have to admit that the shutter noise really is different from the 5D2 and had me looking if something was broken or loose, but all seems well.  Last thing I looked at was the firmware, so that I could download a newer version if available.  Low and behold, the camera shows that it has 1.2.0!  Now, mind you it was nearly 1 in the morning when I was doing this, so I may have misread it.  But I'll double check when I get home this evening and post a pic if it really is.  I didn't know that we've been stuck at 1.1.3 since last year.  I don't have an extender, so I can't verify the f/8 deal.  But I can tell you that the focus points are still black, although they flashes red when the AF beeps that focus has been attained.  Don't know if this is normal or not.  If anyone has any question, I'll be happy to check tonight, if I am able to.

Its starting to show up.  A couple or three weeks until its released.  This gives them a little time to see if any bugs are found.  You can test for 10 years with a hundred beta testers, but a million users can find things in a week or two.
