One thing I found interesting, I have a 60MB/s Sandisk Extreme 16GB CF and I am seeing 12 as the continuous burst available, but I am able to get 32 using RAW before it starts to slow down. I never shoot that deep, just thought it was interesting.

The ISO button will take some getting use to, requires more pressure. The DOF button is awesome! Such a perfect place for it, and no so usable. Before it was too hard to get to and I never bothered to use it. Now it is so comfortable and "within reach" without looking at the camera.

Ergonomics are definitely better.

Another good shot to show detail... ISO 200, f/2.8 with my 70-200 II... Near MFD. You can see high detail on the leaves in focus. Simply beautiful.

SOOC JPEG. Did not touch it at all.

The focus is 1000% better over the older 5D's. I went to the local pond, and a duck came in for landing. I had a few seconds to point the camera, focus and shoot.

Cool Shot,

I like the way there is a good deal of splash in front of the duck as well as behind!!

This is the first time that I haven't had to do any microadjustment to any lens on a new camera. I tried three of them (two zooms at both ends and a prime), and nothing was out. I still have a couple of others to try, but so far so good.

I spent the time to go through my lenses... I printed out the Focal target you use to calibrate via software... Set it up outside and shot wide/tele for all. All my lenses needed adjustment and the improvement was clear. I thought they was fine before, but now it is exact (or close to).

My 24-105L is +3 on both wide and tele.
135L is at like +3
70-200 II is at like +9 wide, +3 tele.
70-200 + TC is 0 on wide end, +6 on tele
135L + TC I did as well but forget the number.

I can't wait until the Focal program supports the 5D3 though, so I can see how close I got. I started by setting up on tripod and squaring it to the target at or over the 25x FL rule. Live-view AF'd and then switched right into normal AF mode and watched the focus scale as I pushed the AF button. If it moved left, it was front focusing... To the right and it was back focusing. Once I saw which way, I adjusted it to +5 or whatever and re-tested... Then I fine-adjusted from there comparing live-view with the normal AF. It was pretty clear to see with the Focal target because you get nice moire patterns on the spiral when sharp focus is achieved. Tested afterward and all looked very good. Especially my 24-105 and 70-200.

Did that with all the lenses and called it a day. I think it was a fairly good method until the software will do it for me... Results look better then before so I think I am good to go.

I've only done the first round of my usual testing, but so far it's looking very good without any adjustments, which is a first. My first round is to use a table-top chart (i.e. one that lies flat with lines going forward and backward from the one you focus on). I make sure I'm shooting in good light, with a tripod, and with the lens wide open. I defocus the lens between each shot and shoot a series of them this way to rule out the issue of lens 'lash-back' or whatever it's called.. The camera will focus on the bottom of the AF point box, so I keep that in mind when doing this kind of test. I check each shot at 100% on a computer.

My second round is a wall chart. That one could turn up some need for adjustment. I'll be doing that one sometime next week, when I'll have the time and light to do it.

What is this focal program you refer to?

It is an automatic AF adjustment program. Set up a target and hit run... It does all the work for you. Very impressive.

I already emailed the developer about the 5D3 and he plans to support it as soon as he can. He plans to have it work with the wide/tele functions as well. He is also adding more features and such.

Worth the money... :)
