Actually, yes I'm one of those guys naming something not on the official poll, I love the Multi-Exposure and HDR features on the 5D Mark III.  I used them heavily last night doing night street photography.  You can shoot a ME mode of a stop light with all 6 bulbs lit up in one photo if you shoot 4 shots at 90 degree angle to the light: (Green/Red, Yellow/Red, Red/Green, Red/Yellow) and into one final image.  I didn't have time to get the exposure correct for each color, but I'm going back tomorrow to perfect it.

I answered Other, as I think it is just a great all-around camera.
The IQ is terrific, the focus fast and accurate and it handles everything I have put to it so far extremely well.

I don't think there is really any other camera that can compare to it for a "compact" DSLR, IMHO, that is so good at virtually anything you'd want a camera to do.

I agree with your points completely

thats a pretty cool idea

but I love too much about itm so cant select any one thing
about only things i dont like are black AF points hard to see
not being able to remap the playback zoom buttons to the same as the other cameras
and not being able to reconfigure the rate button to activate bracketing like the 1D series have been able to do since the mk1, just hold the button and dial the top wheel and bang bracketing is enabled as the stop interval you select on the fly

It's Canon's runner-up camera to the 1D X.  After using two of them for about 3 months now, it can go where the 1Ds III can't go but not quite where the 1D X can go.  #2 camera right now for sure.  I think most of the negatives are scare from reading websites vs. the price.  I too was a little worried after I bought mine.  But after using, all of that worry was very quickly dispelled.  If you have the money to buy one and don't want to buy a 1D X, just get one.
