Image portfolio in the latter complements the former.

Astonishing image quality samples undisputably far better than the MkII, sheer joy to have such power at hand for the price, over and above the term "enthusiast's level", I'm glad they didn't fall for the megapixel race, I'm ordering one before they change their mind and give us back the MkII!

Why? Articuated screens are really useful. Have you ever actually used one?

looks as expected. faster, better AF (as if that was hard), improved high ISO performance in line with industry advances and slight tweaks. a worthy update but nothing revolutionary. this is an evolution/refinement to address prior shortcomings.
 
No 1080p60 or uncompressed HDMI? glaring omissions. No the video revolution from the 5DII. This clearly shows canon wants top dollar for top video. Get you C line wallet ready.

Old metering sensor which doesn't recongnize subjects and aids in AF is a HUGE letdown IMO for a camera with such capable AF and framerate. this was off course crippled by design. This isn't your baby 1DX.

lack of f/8 capable AF is expected as the sensor is the same the 1DX has. and further proof the 1DX can't focus at f/8 no matter how much people think it will. If it could, this camera would have done it. It's a hardware issue, not firmware.

finally, 1 more MP. I guess it is better than nothing.

cool camera buy my jaw ain't dropping at 3500 bucks.

Some note from Planet5D and their hands on and comparing the 5D3 to the 1Dx:

Quote
The stills we were shown were significantly better than the 5D2 – the noise levels were reduced and at the higher ISOs the color was better. The Canon EOS-1D X is even better still. It has 1 stop better but the pixels are also a bit larger because the Canon EOS-1D X is only 18mp.


Said this over the past 2 weeks that the 1Dx would have the better IQ.  5D3 looks better than the 5D2, but there was no way on God's Green Earth that Canon was going to let the 5D3 surpass the 1Dx in IQ.

New DPP is available for download now.

I can't find it on the Canon USA website. Do you have a link?

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

camera prices have nothing to do with exchange rates.

besides, you're lucky! if the US price of $3,500 were converted to AUD it would be $3,244 (according to Google), but here the body alone is going for $4,200...!

I figure that since I have plans to buy this camera, and the new 24-70 II, and the new 600EX, and maybe event the WFT-E7, it might be worth while doing a trip to the states, having a short break and picking them all up there?  I figure that if the aussie exchange rate stays where it is, i might save money even after paying for the air fares? Anyone interested in a shopping trip?

I saw a 1080p clip on youtube and the footage looks solid.

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?

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...

Thank you for the quick response, dr croubie!

I must say I think Canon is going a bit high on the prices lately with the 5D Mark III, new flash, and 24-70. I still think they will sell plenty of the Mark III since it's such a great camera though I don't think they will see high sales on the 24-70mm f/2.8L II. As a 60D shooter looking to upgrade to full frame, the Mark III is WAY more expensive than I was looking though I have a concern with buying the Mark II. The Mark II is still a great camera but I feel like that greatness is only going to last another year. Once a new 7D hits, the Mark II will be lost similar to the Nikon D300 when the D7000 came out. It will go down in value FAST ($1000+ in the next 3 years) and be very difficult to sell. I feel like in 3 years, the Mark III will still be worth within $700 of the purchase price and still be a popular item for resale. As such, I would be better off financially when I sell or upgrade and get the benefit of a better body. Where am I wrong

Weather sealing, perhaps?   ???   I realize it's not a 1D series body, but it's not a Rebel, either.

The additional cost is another possible factor.
