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!

I think it's awesome :D Good to see pretty much complete ignorance of the megapixel race (Nokia won anyway :P)

Just a quick question...I saw on CNET a table comparing the the 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, Nikon D800, and the table says the Mark II's ISO is 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800).

My 5D in 'Auto ISO' can only go up to 3200, and I have to manually select anything above 3200? Are they wrong, or is there something I've been doing wrong all this time?

For me, this turns an excitement to be a disappointment. I don't know about anyone else, but 5D Mark II can be had used in like new condition for $1600 if you look around really well. I don't think I can justify almost $2000 more for a body. I'm excited to see the new body, but it'll be a couple of years or so before I will touch it. :(

What they mean is, that *you* can select up to 6400 all the time, but the *camera* will only select up to 3200 in auto. You have to set a Custom Function for *you* to be able to select 12k. Same as my 7D, custom functions get me to 6k and 12k, but auto is only ever 3200.
My sister's 550d, and my mum's pentax ist*dl and new k5 all let you set a min-max range for auto ISO, but my 7D doesn't. I hope that's finally coming to the expensive models...
Too much gear, too little space.

wow that's a huge increase in price for custom auto iso, 3-year-old metering, and 1DX AF.
 
does 6fps make a difference compared to 4? idk I don't care about that anyway.

I mean ok this is a new DSLR and all, improvements are to be expected.
but the greatest improvement is on the price side I guess.

oh well, I'm going to pass on this.

Nikon D800 native iso: 100-6400
Canon 5d3 native iso: 100-25600 ???

Is this right? Looking forward to the high iso samples to see any significant improvements.

That's a big selling point I think Canon just did, if those extra 2 stops of iso are usable!

It'd be pretty good if only 1 extra stop was usable.  It'd be GREAT if 2 stops of iso are usable.
