5Dm3 & BG-E6 Battery grip
« on: March 16, 2012, 11:23:22 PM »
When the 5d was announced, and for a while after, the BG-E6 was listed as compatible with the m3. I was about to order a used one, but noticed that Canon's site no longer lists it as compatible.

Does anyone have information that can verify one way or another?

Thanks!

The BG-E6 isn't compatible with the 5D mkiii
And the bg-E11 isn't compatible with the 5DMkII.

Different physical layout for the battery compartment for one reason I believe.

The BG-E6 and BG-E11 are not compatible because the small protruding location tab on the units are in different places
