Canon EOS 5D Mark III Black Digital SLR Camera Kit w/ 24-105mm IS Lens (22.3 MP, SD/SDHC/SDXC Card Slot)

$3,399.99 to $4,198.80
The Canon 5D line of cameras is iconic, one of those "once in a generation" phenomenons. First of all, they're wonderfully versatile still-photography cameras. But when the 5D Mark II arrived on the scene in 2008, the impact it had on the world of video production was palpable. Suddenly, cinematic, professional high-definition images were available at a price point budget-minded independents could afford, and the rest was history. The DSLR cinema revolution had begun.

    Some quick observations on the 5D3. Before I go further I should explain I'll be comparing vs. the 5D2 and second, if you need to know about video, I can't be of any help there.

    Received camera body from Amazon on 3/23. Lots of new features (5D2 manual is 259 pages; 5D3 manual is 403 pages). For the work I do, I was looking for two improvements over the 5D2: Ability to bracket more than 3 shots and much lower noise. The first wish was granted. As you probably know, the 5D3 does 7 exposures. Nikons do 9, but 7 is almost always enough. Those who need more will probably have a Promote remote anyway. Noise? Well, the 5D3 images are cleaner but I wouldn't say dramatically so. With the default noise settings and long exp NR set on, I'd say it's 1 to 1.5 stops better than the 5D2. Now, with a little Noiseware or other NR, you can get very clean images at 12800 with very little loss of detail so I don't consider this a problem. I guess it was unrealistic to expect the...

    Should you upgrade? Photo and video shooters, read and decide!
    I was able to pre-order and the Canon 5D Mark III arrived on March 29th. I had mixed feelings when the press release first came out with the specs on the new Mark III. Several features that were high on my wish list didn't make it into the camera, but when I started seeing some of the image samples, particularly in low light, I knew I wanted it anyway.

    I'm currently an owner of the 5D Mk II and the 60D and my expectations were that the Mk III would inherit many of the superior handling features of the newer 60D. I am an enthusiast and not a professional photographer but I do make my living shooting product photography for online sales. For pleasure I shoot nature, architecture, and the occasional portraits. I'm also an avid fan of DSLR video and the fact that these cameras can literally capture Hollywood quality footage with few modifications is a big deal to me and a lot of people in the independent cinematography community.

    The much anticipated release of the...

    A home run for the 5D series, finally!
    I didn't rush to make a review of this camera, as I wanted to really put it through it's paces first. I won't try to list every feature or go over every bullet point (the above description does a fine job), but instead try to go over a few things which make a big difference to me as a 5D Mark II owner. For some background, I bought an original 5D in 2007, a 5DII in 2008 and have been working with these bodies ever since then. I also have experience with all of the Canon 1-series up through the 1DIII and 1DsIII. I currently log about 60,000 photos per year with the 5D Mark IIs as a professional wedding and portrait photographer. I shoot almost exclusively with fast L prime lenses in my work.

    So after a week of solid shooting with the camera, here are the areas which are of note relative to previous 5D bodies:

    **AUTOFOCUS**
    AF is the elephant in the room here so I'll address it first. Good news, we now have a focusing system worth of it's price point...
