Razor: then after few days, how is your feedback? how is the grip material, the surface aspect, how the buttons and joystick are responding?
My 5DIII is on its way for my home, then I'll be glad to know before ordering one!

First impressions:  Well I pretty much have to agree with most of the other comments made here.  Quality is top notch, grip and surface seem to match very well, and feels very solid.  The grip makes the 5DIII feel beefy with a little weight behind it.  But it does feel really balanced, especially when the 70-200 2.8II is on.  I've never owned a 1 series (just played with a couple of them), so I'm not locked in to a certain feel or grip that others have become accustomed to.  The layout might not be as 'ergonomic' as previously stated but I do like it nonetheless.  The joystick is great, and the buttons respond well.  Great match for the 5DIII.
5D MKIII w grip, 70-200 2.8L IS II, 24-70 2.8L II, 16-35 2.8L II, 100 2.8L IS macro, 600EX-RT
