Pekka, even though i think that the review is a bit too positive for my taste, it is a very well written review. what is even more important is that you mentioned the issue of the AF problems and even more important is that you criticized Canon for the way they handled the issue.

THANK YOU!!!!

Well written and straightforward... honest review. I like that it reflects your way of shooting and your views and compares to your proficient canon photography knowledge. Thanks

Good review. I think you fairly touched on the af issues. They are there for me but I'm still using the camera. If AF is fixed the MK III is definitely the dream Canon camera for now. I've had my camera since June and i can't believe there is not some sort of resolution to the af issues in a camera company's flagship camera.

Thanks Pekka for the review, it was a great read. Curious to know if you put out a guide concerning the custom functions? I switched from Nikon D2X to Canon Mark III & still learning this beautiful piece of equipment. Thanks!

Like Blonde said maybe a bit light on the issues that confound me but over all a well thought out articulated review as it pertains to your type of shooting. If they could fix the AF problems I would give it a 10 / 10 here. When all systems function properly it is a stupendous camera.

Very nice qualitative review. Is it only my impression or did you say that Canon may have created an AI Servo system that is TOO complex to use? That's how I used to think of the issue. Thanks for taking the time to present this. Even with the AF issues it's a heck of a camera.

Did you notice that the full-res file "Scenery from Ferry" has some strange errors at the bottom of the frame?

Nice review Pekka! Well done on covering all the features regarding the MARK III. I also commend you for noting the AF problem and stating it for the public. I hope Canon can hear there customers finally and put this issue to rest. Are you LISTENING CANON? Please do the right thing.
