Thanks Craig, shame about the broadcast going down, but the specs more than make up for it..

I jump back and forth between stills and video work, so very happy about the variable frame rates and headphone socket, and the adopting the 7D's dedicated video start/stop control. In my haste and giddy childlike glee to read thru fast I maybe missed it in there somewhere, but any word on the UK RRP from the London announcement?

THE BAD STUFF COMPARED TO THE RUMORS:
So the fps is quite a let down compared to the rumors. :(
And the metering is the same old, nothing like the D800 metering. :(
And the price of $3500 body only is insane for not getting us the 7-7.5fps of the rumors. :(
Darn if only the 6.9fps had been true it would've made the $3500 a lot more palatable, now the price still seems a bit much. It is the mirror box that actually costs the most money, other than perhaps the sensor.


BUT THE BETTER THAN EXPECTED FROM RUMORS:
"The EOS 5D Mark III utilises the same 61-point wide-area AF system as the flagship EOS-1D X, providing exceptional sensitivity, precision and speed. One of the most advanced AF systems currently available, it features an impressive 41 cross-type points and five dual cross-type points, providing unsurpassed accuracy across the frame. The customisable AF pre-sets introduced in the EOS-1D X are also available, helping the capture of traditionally challenging subjects, and providing additional reliability in ituations where subject movement can be unpredictable. "

If they really 100% mean that, same detector, same algorithms and AF processing speed and options (although without the 1DX metering system it would seem the color tracking would have to be missing, or at least reduced to 64 blob zones instead of 100,000 zones) then maybe we finally have 1 series AF in a compact body. Something we have not seen since the ancient days of the good old EOS 3 beast.

This certainly would be most welcome. And the AF appears to be not remotely as simplified or toned down or worse as we had feared.

Finally, it seems, getting 1 series AF outside of the 1 series sure has is nice. :D

Hopefully not being tied into the 1DX meter won't make it perform much worse.

It's quite possible it might AF better than the D800. We will see.

:D


If they kit it with the 24-70II and not just the 24-105 for a big discount it would help to make the price a lot more palatable....

Just put in my pre-order through B&H. Hopefully Canon will be able to deliver it by late March as advertised. I'm almost as excited about the 600EX-RT. I've been debating buying three sets of Radio Poppers, but having an OE solution from Canon is a huge plus, despite the shorter range.

So now that it's fact, and no longer rumour, that means everyone using this site has to shut up about it and start talking about the 5D mk4...  :P ::)
Too much gear, too little space.

Sounds great! I'm definitely gonna get this.

EDIT: missed the availability from the press release. End of March? Well now Canon, that's not too shabby at all if they can pull it off. Maybe there will be some in stock somewhere so I can buy one by May or June!
