I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Canon still don't have a built-in eyepiece cover for the 5D line like the Nikon D700 - making you use that S___ty little rubber eyepiece cover that might be attached to your neck strap, if you use a neck strap.

First chink the armor.

GRRRRRRR!!!!!

ummm... are you serious?  As a professional, I cant say i've ever in the last decade thought in the back of my mind... I wish my camera had an eyepiece cover... Never... Not once...  I think it could be a nuisance more than anything else... when I want my camera ready to shoot, it better be ready to shoot... If any dust gets in the peice, I'll take a qtip and clean it... done.

It's bad for metering when not using it up to your eye.

These days I tend to do most of that sort of shooting with liveview so it's not so much of an issue.

+1.  I have not noticed a problem.  I do meter with my eye up against the eyepiece, and for most of my landscapes when on a tripod-I'm in liveview and a 2 second timer so the mirror locks up and I have already focused (sometimes manual sometimes from the back of the camera) and metered just before taking the shot.  But then again I am more of an enthusiast than a pro photog.

That's how I shoot... however live view use is mainly on tripod, when I want to evaluate the full frame (xxd and 5d VF isn't 100% at this time)  When I use the 7d, because it's 100%, i hardly ever used LV to be honest unless shooting video or when i needed an angle where I couldn't be using the VF...  I've never really had light meter problems as I either independently meter, use an educated guess based off of sunny 16, compensation, and experience, or if I need the camera meter, gray card and bring up the exposure to middle. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

I can see that Canon have included the button on the top of the mode dial to prevent accidental rotation of the mode dial like they have on the 60D.
Great idea.

Can't wait for the full specs.

That makes that camera worth it's weight in gold haha.  That mode dial rotates so easily out on the field... Even bit me in the butt on a job for a client this weekend...  caught it in time and only had to do a quick reshoot, but still a bad design.

About the customisable buttons: I think I see a M-Fn Button above the shutter on the 3rd pic, like the one on the 1DX

I believe he's in Dubai where it is currently 2:45am. He said he had a shoot in the morning so I doubt we'll hear back from him anytime soon. If he only knew what's been going on while he sleeps. LOL

"MFn" at the shutter suggests AF 7d alike?

For now, I will simply suggest that one day they will do away with that big clunky wheel on top of the camera. . .

They did....it's called a 1Dx.  It does not have a mode dial on top of the camera.

:)

Or a 1d3/1d4/1ds3 .....

This forum seems to be about 5dmk3 with some other topics discussed, when there is nothing about 5d3 meanwhile. :)

"MFn" at the shutter suggests AF 7d alike?

Yes the MFn button is to cater for the newer AF system on new bodies like 7D, 1DX and etc.

Does anyone else chuckle a little when they read, “The MFn button”? I do. Like, “Push the MFn button already!”
"What's your MFn problem?”

Great find!  I guess this debunks the "confirmation" on kuaDDro.com that it would be called the 5D X.  How reliable is that site, typically?  I hadn't heard of them before seeing them referred to on the forums here recently.


Never thought the 5D X name was likely. Glad to see it's called the Mk III.


I was 90% sure it was going to be 5D Mark III, but I wasn't saying anything until it was 100%.


I do apologize for posting kuaDDro's "rumor."  I just thought Digicame-info has higher reliability and its post regarding this kuaDDro's lame 5DX confirmation might be sort of reliable too.  My bad.

If only. LOL

I.E. a highly trained black ops extraction team flying in from Canon HQ tonight to disappear him and his lucky (while it lasted) friend early next morning.
