5D III microfocus?
« on: March 02, 2012, 06:16:34 PM »
I'm hoping that the 5D mark III will have the type of microfocus adjustment system that allows you to set different values for both ends of a zoom range.  No mention of that so far in any reports I have seen.

If anyone sees any reference to this feature in a review, please post a link.

Thanks!

Mike

That feature would be there by default.

Yes, two settings for zooms, and serial number awareness like the 1D X.
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Oh no!  You guys just cost me $3500!  My Mark 3 lust is now out of control.   :P

It also microadjusts different samples of the same lens, as it detects the serial number. This article has quite a bit of more detailed information on various aspects.
