Upgrading from "x" to the 5D3
« on: March 19, 2012, 04:07:02 PM »
So I was just wondering about those who are getting the 5D3, and what they will be upgrading from??

I will be upgrading from a T3i, which has treated me very well. I use it 65% for video 34% photography and 1% desk decoration.

Had 7D and 5DII, sold the 5DII already.  Still waiting for a preorder from B&H for the 5DIII.  Shooting with the 7D last weekend reminded me of all the AF and metering goodness I've been missing from my 5DII.  I fully expect 5DIII to be the best of both 7D and 5DII.
