Although, when taking the same photos with my friends, it appears my 5D lacks image quality compared to their fujis & sonys.

Why would Canon care when people keep buying? Obviously you shelled out ~$3000, so your complaint might fall on deaf ears :-p

What do you want for your 5D3?
Could you please post some pictures?
What's the shutter count?

Have fun with your sony!

I have to agree, there's nothing like a picture of a Prius from a 5D.
I mean look at those shots of the 918 spyder, does that thing look awesome or what? - all shot with a 5D!
hybrid and 5D is a match made in heaven.

What's lacking?  Low ISO DR?  There are many reasons your friends may be getting better images that have nothing to do with the sensors.

No, it didn't...because:

As for "the end of the 5D line," the 5DIII is probably the best-selling high-end dSLR on the market.  Feel free to not buy a second one, or it's successor.  Canon doesn't really care.

And Note: If you would use Magic Lantern for your 5D3 you have a video IQ that beats all stuff you mentioned.
Never expect Canon to support ML officialy. And why you need that? Just use it and smile.

Hi Arctic,

Where can I see the Porsche 918 Spyder shots you refer to? I'd love to take a look.

Best regards from Stuttgart

This seems to be one more in a long line of posts that confuse personal preferences/needs with market realities.

The market clearly says that Canon systems meet the needs of most photographers. To think their 5D line is in some jeopardy seems ludicrous.

You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

I'm going to reiterate a point made by PBD a while ago on an old thread; your friend's cameras may well be more 'amateur' orientated than the 5DIII, which is a true professionl camera not necessarily set up for instant gratification.
If that's how you feel you'd probably be better off with a fuji or Sony. It's no big deal; those cameras have been designed to appeal to a certain audience after all.

But 'end of the 5D line' ?

On the other hand, current Canon brand market realities are so boring this it needs a troll thread to generate some interest beyond "7d2 [CR1]" and "35L2 [CR0]" :-o
