if you mostly shoot video why yuo getting the 5Dmark III? the video is even softer on the mark III...I'd get the 5D2 and save a bunch...
Have you even used a 5DIII or are you just repeating what you've read here and there on the web? I'm guessing if you're putting it down then you don't have one. It isn't "softer" than the 5DII, I have both and shooting with the 5DIII is a pleasure compared to the 5DII. It handles noise much better, virtually no moire/artifacts, 1080p HDMI out makes pulling focus much easier, it's a beast in low-light and (most importantly) it responds to changes in post infinitely better than 5DII footage did. With the 5DII even changing the white balance could seriously degrade the footage, the artifacts made it damn near impossible to sharpen, not to mention the annoying moire.
And the video features are barely anything compared to the massive improvements on the stills side. I don't see why people think they are qualified to recommend/not recommend something they have never used, cut it out.
Sir, you just made me pull the trigger. I thank you.
Hello Mr 5D MK3.
You're very welcome, it's a great camera and even if you didn't like it for some reason you can sell it in a heartbeat with virtually no loss. It's been a joy to shoot with and it's hard to go back to the Mark II after using it.
