As a very new owner of a markII coming from a 30D, I am immediately struck by the noisy (I'd go as far as saying cheap sounding) shutter. The lack of more AF points was the next surprise.

I would vote firmly for more MP, but not higher ISO's or frames per second, as for my use what the mark II is equiped with is fine for my use. I'd love the mark III to be the camera that challenges the Nikon D800 and it's possible 36 MP.

The 5D II is so new to me that I've yet to shoot in anger with it. I've taken one or two test shots while setting things up as I want them but thats it.

Lack of AF points was a surprise?! Surely you have heard 3 years of people complaining about the 5D series autofocus?!

To be honest I had blanked the 5D and have been seriously looking at a used 1Ds mark3 until I went to a Canon presentation on the new 1Dx and we discussed my thinking. Thats when the 5D2 alternative was suggested by the local shop owner.

So I am surprisingly poorly informed other than it has the same MP as the 1Ds mk3, is a little heavier than my old 30D, but only slightly and has no pop-up flash (which suits me fine). I sort of assumed that the Eos-3 has 45 AF points, the new 1Dx has 60 (or is it 61?) therefore the 5 would have 20 or maybe 30.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. Given that I have yet to fire a shot "in anger" so to speak, I have no right to any real opinion as yet and I'm sure the camera will do me fine.

I can't believe more MP got so few votes. Canon needs at least one FF body dedicated to landscape and studio use. They need to match Nikon at 36 MP.

Only two things I want: Better dynamic range, I need at least 13 stops. Then I'll be happy. And if it's not entirely impossible, I wouldn't mind a better af system also. 9 af points is enough, just make them all cross-type and spread them out a little. That's all i ask. I think the video in my 5d mark II is good enough, i don't shoot a lot of video, but it's nice to have.

Hey I'm new to this forum, my first post, so hello everyone!

I honestly thought (and hoped) that the new 1D would be high megapixel beast leaving the 5D MKIII to be the low light monster. Looks like that isn't going to be the case.

Remember that all those votes were cast long before the 1Dx was introduced. At that time, I thought the 1Dx would have 27 MP and do 8FPS. A lot of us were pretty desperate for a Lord-of-Darkness camera like the D3s or, even better, a D700 with a D3s sensor. We're going to get our D3s competitor, but at too high a price.

I can - it's really only Canon 1Ds3 and 5D2 owners that have enjoyed a ff sensor offering 21mp for about 3 years now.

I'm discounting the D3x because even by Nikon users admission, it's no good off a tripod and out of the studio!

So 21mp seems to be keeping a lot of people happy, where as the AF is next to embarrassing, when i have to admit i had more responsive focusing on my 40D (which i believe is the same system).

But let's be honest, i think we're all expecting the MP to increase because Canon has killed the old MP king with the 5D2, so the 5DIII seems the logical successor. And probably another stop or 2 of ISO...

I would like better AF, a pop-up flash for those times when you need a little fill, flash contol so I can get rid of my ST-E2, and faster FPS!

I would like:

24 mp
5 p/sec (7-8 with add. battery grip)
better AF
multi-exposure (in-camera)
9 image BKT (3 as of today is just ridicioulous)

you could also name it 3D :) ...at least/last we would be near where we were 10 years ago with the 1V

As a (mostly) content 7D owner longing for FF, I would love to get a 5D with

  • great picture quality even at higher ISO settings (I really hate the noise the 7D pictures show even at ISO 400: far too much banding and JPEG-compression-like artefacts even in RAW)
  • the 7D AF system
  • the 7D weather sealing
  • inbuilt GPS
  • a high quality screen on the back of the cam and the possibility to directly jump into a 100% view of the picture
  • 5 fps
  • faster shutter speed for flash synchronization
EOS 7D; EOS 40D; EF 70-200 f4 L; EF 70-300 L; EF 100 f2.8; EF-S 15-85; EF-S 10-22 |

21 MP/ better 18 MP (same 1Dx sensor)
working ISO 25600/12800
good ISO102k
if we get that at a 2.8-3k USD pricetag

but that is just my wishlist for an affordable FF
wedding photog might like more MP and cropping space
