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.

Forgive me if this has already been covered, but dof preview button?  Are we possibly getting customisable buttons on the other side of the lens mount 1dx style?

Simon

Some have mentioned that it might be on the other side of the lens nearer to where your right hand is on the grip-similar to the 7D.


From memory the button on the 7D is the same as 5D, xxD, etc - isn't it the 1 series that have it by the right hand?

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.

I mentioned in an earlier thread that I am addicted to CR. I didn't think I was but I missed it BIG time today when it was offline. I guess I am Kr@zy [CR4] too!!!

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
