Ordered the 5d3
« on: April 15, 2012, 10:08:16 PM »
Finally purchased this 3500 dollar camera from Adorama friday. Says it will ship on monday and I should receive it by Thursday at the latest. Hopefully it's a purchase that I won't regret. I dont get paid for photography but I've found relief in it. Maybe one day I can get paid from another passion of mine. Everyone got the 'soft' issues worked out right? Hopefully I have no issues with mine

Got mine in and no issues that I can tell.  Hopefully it will go by faster than mine did.

No issue with mine.  It's the best DSLR I've ever had or used.  I've used 50D, 60D, 7D, 5D II, and 1D III.  I once thought that the 7D was the best compromise, but know the 5D III is king.

Best of luck with yours!  I'm certain you will be amazed.

Congratulation on your new toy ;)

It worth every penny...within 3 years I went from 40D, 60D, 5D II and NOW 5D III....the feeling I have for this camera is it will stay with me for long long time.

I love the 5D II IQ, but AF is really not that great - I have 3yrs daughter, trust me, it's not fun to focus when she running around.

5D III AF is completly different BEAST....way better

Just ordered mine - nice to see all of these comments as I am a 7D owner.  I called Canon support on the issues I knew of via this forum and verified that the so called leak with Body Cap cover on will not effect any photo sessions.  The RAW image issue will be fixed with release of DPP 3.11.11 (currently 3.11.10) which is due out in a few days. The Eye Piece is the same as the 7D (I've no issues with it in 2 years though others complain its crappy, dust got in it, etc.), Only two lenses that do have issues are the 200mm F2 and the 800 5.6, all other lenses tested without issue and finally the Error 80 message that only happens when the camera pairs up with a special memory card (can't recall the name something Eye??).  Support assured me that the camera is solid and no recalls of any kind were outstanding.  I got mine with a Chase credit card and save another $260 off the $4299 price so am real happy about that (rewards program) and got a second year free warranty with Chase.  Item is on back order unfortunately.
Thanks

Seems as though everyone is enjoying their new equipment. Thats a good thing to hear. For the user who asked what I ordered, I got the body only.
Whats funny is, I've never made money from my photography, but I was just asked to shoot a few music videos(cam hasn't arrived just yet) Pay=1300

So theres a little over a 3rd of my cost of the camera :-)
Hopefully I can get the rest recouped sooner than later lol

Adorama. They are shipping out almost immediately on the body only. Im not sure of the kit. You should check with them. You'd probably get it this week if you ordered by tomorrow.
