Did anyone notice tht the dial on the two photos are different? maybe im seeing things but one is with a 60D lock and the other photo is with a normal 5D2 lock.

Which 2 photos were you referring to? Of the 3 photos leaked, only one showed the mode dial lock. If you compare it to the Kenya photo, it's the same - with lock.

2nd and 3rd pic from the 3 leaked photos. (compare it from the side view)

While the 5DIII has a lock on top, it's not the same dial as the one on the 60D.  The button is more recessed on the 5DIII.

plus with the angle of perspective on the second shot, I doubt you'd be able to see even a 60D style button.

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.

Sounds like you need to go back to camera school - it's nothing to do with dust. It's for light leakage doing low-light long exposures. Star trails, Lee Big Stopper work especially. Read you camera manual about why it's useful, and in some cases required. Similarly it's why we use lens hoods. Not all light is good light.

Where is the DOF preview button? Please tell me it's lockable...

The DOF preview on the 5DII a terrible implementation that made it more or less useless.

Is it just me or does the "III" on the first pic look fake? Now the second pic looks more legit and on the third pic you really can't see it clearly. Either way I can't wait for March 2nd!!! Bring it baby!!  8)

this was asked a few pages back.  Some have suggested that it may be the other side of the lens near the grip-similar to the 7D

Although personally I was hoping for a higher megapixel camera, I think a lot of people are going to be happy with this new 5D. For the most part, all 5D Mark II owners wanted was a camera with better AF performance and it seems like Canon has given them their wish.


It wasn't until we saw the D800 that we started to dream of 30+ megapixels, so Canon really did what they were supposed to do with the Mark III. And who knows, the Mark X may still be coming or Canon may have realized that 30+ megapixels is too much for a 35mm sensor and may give us a camera with a larger sensor.

Have you read the camera manual?  I'm guessing no, so you might want to take your own advice.  The manual states, "If you take a picture without looking at the viewfinder, light entering the eyepiece can throw off the exposure. To prevent this, use the eyepiece cover..."  What 'throw off the exposure' means is that the metering will be affected, not the image itself, directly.  As others have tried to explain, shooting in manual mode solves this problem - you set the exposure while looking through the VF to compose the shot, then when you step back to remotely trigger, light entering the VF is irrelevant since the exposure will not change in manual mode (assuming you've set your ISO to a specific value, on models which support Auto ISO in M mode). 

During the exposure, the reflex mirror (the 'R' in dSLR) is flipped up and completely blocks light entering the viewfinder from reaching the sensor. If your camera is leaking light during long exposures, you should send it to Canon Service, because light leakage sufficient to affect an image directly means a defective camera.
