Although the price is definitely up there, the camera is better in every way when compared to the 5D2 - I'm still thinking the sweet spot for pricing would have been $3000, but as I am in need of a Full Frame Camera sooner than later, I'm fine with paying the $500 early adoption fee...  ;)

With 5D III Specs...are you going to get 1D X?

Most likely the 1D X, yes.  Still not 100% decided, but I definitely didn't preorder the 5DIII.

My order confirmation email from B&H was at 9:32 PM PST last night. Hopefully in time to make the first shipment.

Hello all,

I think 5D mark III targets mainly those who currently have a 5D (or mark II) and a 7D - both specs-wise and price-wise, and perhaps should not be seen as a typical 5D line camera. So the poll out of curiosity...

Thanks!

I had a 5D classic until two months ago. Love the files that came from it. Sold it. If Canon came out with a lame AF on the mk3 then I would have bought a used mk2

I think many crop owners that have been waiting for what seems like years for the 5d3 will buy one.  Like me for example.

Really, it's for whomever wants it.

I think I'm on this bandwagon. 5Dm3 is certainly good, and better than the 5Dm2, but for the difference, I'm going with the 1Dx. They just didn't do enough for an $800 price increase. If you have to break the bank, why not do it for the flagship?

right now there are 200 dollar rebates on the 70-200's, anyone know if that will last? or has an ending to it?
i wanted to wait until my 5d3 came in, but if il save money then i might as well get it.
thanks in advance!

The 5d3 is a pretty all around camera -- I do mostly portraits and events, but it would be awesome for just about any use I can think of.  I'm upgrading from an original 5d, and will go with it or possibly the Nikon D800 since I'm ready to change my lenses too (they're all 6+ years old and ready to take advantage of the newer versions and IS lenses that have been released in the past couple of years).

didn't do enough? 61 point focus for stills??? and all new hd video specs, with sound monitoring??? thats well worth the money right there, once its out there will never be another 5d2 on my sets again, ever.

I just ordered *MY* 5D3 from Best Buy.  The estimated delivery date printed on my order is 03/05 to 03/10/2012 (not 2013 ;D ).  I don't know how accurate this is, but I get a discount as a frequent buyer and free shipping...

Cheers

Best Buy????? Are you kidding me? I just looked to preorder there and they wanted $100.00 just for shipping? :((( Why??? I live in Florida not Sri Lanka. $100.00????
Best Buy is definitely trying to take advantage of the early adaptors.

I currently use a 300D/350D pair for my stuff.  I have been holding off upgrading for a while because I wanted to see where the market was going.   Personally, not all that impressed with the 5D3 since most of the things it is designed to be better at then existing bodies are not things I have much of a use for, and all the things that it is better at then my current ones (nearly everything), other bodies are pretty close at a better price point.

Though I will probably just sit and wait some more to see if they release a new high MP camera at a good price point next.
