Can not understand how any one can be a critic of a product they have never used or have even picked up in their hand. Makes no sense and seems to me is really useless information

Gone are the days when you don't have to focus recompose. ;)

That is terrible news! I hope those days will come back again in the future. :D

We, Canon Lovers, finally got a camera that has the qualities that many people were ASKING for...now people are criticizing it? Really? The AF IS better, the MP IS better, the Processor IS better(6fps) and you get Dual recording capabilities! What else are you going to ask for? The camera to photograph FOR you? Everyone needs to be patient for REAL examples to appear that've been taken by the professionals who are pre-ordering this beast.

People say its too expensive...it has a $5,000 camera's AF system.
People say the noise won't be "much" better. In reality a +1 stop or +2 stop better is a step in the right direction, correct? Does it not take million's to even figure that out?

We're getting a heavy amount of people looking at very small things, but unless you want to pay $5000+ for a camera, you're not going to get the BEST so why complain???

For $3500 you're going to get a ironclad upgrade for the 5d2, let's be honest.

Call me an idiot for posting this, but I want to B**** about the B****ers.

bw!

I feel the same way and have said so in another thread as well.

I think another thing that is adding to the "disappointment" is that after the D800 was announced everyone thought that Canon HAD to do SOMETHING. It was almost as if Nikon was changing the camera landscape, and Canon better not dare release something that wasn't a direct answer.

Meanwhile Canon was busy creating a camera that fixed all of the issues with the 5D2, and then some.

I know that some of the new features have been available on other cameras like 3, 5, 7 frame AEB and built in HDR, but it's a f'ing first for a Canon DSLR!!!

Lastly like others have said, if you're sooooo blown away with the D800(E) and are sooooo disappointed in the 5D3, then go, go Nikon!

People tend to complain about the stupidest things, that's the nature of... people. The 5D2 cost the same when it came out and a lot of people probably whined then as well. But at least then they got much less of an upgrade than they're getting now... but people still whine, because it's in their nature to whine.

People would be whining even if Canon offered this camera for free to all current Canon DSLR users. They'd complain about having to ship their camera in and pay for shipping fees... outrageous!!

Everyone can talk about how the grass is greener. Nikon had the better flash system, sure. They don't have the lens line up that Canon has. That is a fact. Not everyone uses flashes - every photographer uses lenses.

Initially, I thought the price of the 5D3 is steep compared to D800.

However, IIRC D800 is assembled/manufactured in a SE Asian country unlike the D700 which is assembled in Japan.

Taking into account the current yen/dollar exchange rate, a product manufactured in Japan would be in a price disadvantage compared to a product assembled in a 2nd or 3rd world country. Not pleasant but that's the way things are.

The type of photography that I take most seriously is low level macro work in low light - bush orchids specifically. The only things I wanted in the 5D3 that the Mk 2 didn't have were built-in wireless E-TTL multi-flash control and an articulating LCD.

I got neither.

Still, it is a bit academic as I couldn't have afforded it even had it had these features.

5D III specs are solid. However, the camera's specs also would have been much more useful back in 2008 when the 5D II came out and they decided to ignore every single thing they "caught up" on this time around. That means certain key specs have been inadequate for 3 years and they only just now made them adequate 3 years late. Then, the price of $3500 is more unreasonable because of the D800's price of $3000 and the fact that the 5D III is basically an incremental upgrade in most ways.
