Thanks Craig for your great spot on recent CR3.   8)

From the actual released specs and if Canon has implemented their R&D well, this should be an awesome FF camera. Great IQ, very strong AF, etc.   ;)

I'm looking forward to the reviews, and seeing great photos from it.

Who knows I may even buy it somewhere down the line.... :)

I'm not a brand-fanatic. What I do appreciate is using my 7D and 350D cameras along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

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!


According to this interview, Mr. Westfall says the MKIII is two stops better in ISO than the MKII. I'm  assuming that's for jpegs but it's still impressive nonetheless.

From dpreview:

"We've had a chance to handle Canon's 5D Mark III 22MP HD DSLR and have prepared a detailed preview and video. The specifications may initially look a little familiar but almost every component is new. It gains most of its ergonomics from the EOS 7D but inherits the sophisticated 61-point AF system from the EOS-1D X. There are also a host of improvements for movie shooters and promises of a 2 stop improvement in low-light performance.[/u]"

There is some question as to whether that "2 stops" refers to jpegs or RAW....just like the 1D X...it's more about jpeg performance.

Was hoping for 2700 considering just getting a used mkii and picking up a 70-200L 2.8mkii which would put me in the 3500-3700 range. If I did the same combo with a MKiii I would be at 5700! That is pretty much the deal breaker for me.

Guys, when will we know which kit the 5d Mark III will come in? Is it again going to be the 24-105L or is there a possibility that it will come with the 24-70mm 2.8

there's too much NR on all high iso shots..

at least there's no visible banding (not even pushing the jpegs from lightroom).  :-X

If the 5D Mark III isn't the replacement for the 5d Mark II, and just a stepping stone to the 1D X, then what is? Hopefully a 70D? Can't wait for the 70D rumors to start flowing, the new 5D Mark III looks great but its definitely way out of my price range unfortunately.

the bride jpeg @3200 looks pretty nice online, but anyway I am currently shooting a 30D at ISO 3200 (H) So IQ wise for me this will be a BIG step up...I'm in for one. Maybe a year from now. If they manage one stop of high ISO improvement in RAW I still guess that is plenty enough for me. So looking forward to compare the 5D3s ISO 3200 with my current extended ISO 3200 then, about one year from now.  8)

Can someone explain to me why it's hundreds of dollars more in Canada even though the exchange is almost identical?
