Poll

I'm not buying a 5D Mark III because...

Too expensive
Sensor is the same as the 5D Mark II .. WTF? (Banding, noise, DR ...)
It's not really a 5D Mark III, it is a 5D Mark IIn
All of the above
I already bought one (or more) and I'm using it, what's your problem?
Upgrading from APS-C is more expensive than just a body upgrade
I don't own any Canon equipment yet so...
Still doesn't have a assignable/dedicated MLU button
Too big and heavy, the way forward is smaller and more compact... (EVIL/MILC)
I've ordered it, just waiting, any day now...
I'm simply not interested in the 5D Mark III or full frame cameras, give me crop!
I bought one and sent it back already, don't want another.!
I'm getting a 1DX instead.
Then I'll need newer, non-Canon, raw software that I can't run
When XXXX come out with a full frame camera for < $2000, bye bye Canon..!
Nikon's D800 has made a convert of me
I don't suffer from upgraditis

Diprotodon, a relative of the modern wombat, was the largest marsupial that ever lived and had a pouch that was large enough to carry an adult human.

Oh good.  I just picked up a 1D X and an 800mm lens at Best Buy with my debit card, was wondering how I'd cart them around  8)

Why does this thread question ask why you DIDN'T buy a 5D Mark III, yet one of the options is that you did buy one?

Don't sweat it.
Photographers often don't like their own portraits taken.
Though it may not have been taken on your best side.

Interesting set of responses thus far... roughly 2/5 have bought a 5D Mark III, another 2/5 would buy one if it offered a better proposition and the other 1/5 is split between a bunch of different reasons.

I'm still confused by this, because your question pertains only to those who DIDN'T buy the 5D Mark III.

Of course! Why? Because that's what is actually useful to know. The people that have already decided for one reason or another that they liked what is on offer so there's no need to go into any depth about what they think. Perhaps one of the more interesting results is that the D800 will cost Canon less than 3% of its 5D Mark III sales. I would have thought it would be much higher.

The confusion is the statement, "I'm not buying a 5D Mark III because...," followed by an answer of, "I already bought one (or more) and I'm using it, what's your problem?"

Well that was there so that all of the folks that have one could tick a box rather than post :)

But in all seriousness, that line adds a lot of value to the poll, don't you think?

Why is that a problem for you?

It does, but as an answer choice it doesn't fit very well with the title of the poll...

Because it waters down the effect that is trying to be created here. Now there are lots of "scattered" votes thus detracting from seeing results more clearly.
