I like the part where he says "ISO 6400 is the new 800". That's pretty amazing.

Well you never know, from what I see the 5D III has at least 1-1.5 stop better ISO than my 5D II in raw.

Three stops is a stretch, but my 5D Mark III is certainly showing improvements. I will wait until I can run my standard processing from beginning to end in LR before I call a hard number.

What did you find with your 5D Mark III Yohan?

Take a week and let the newness wear off and check again. Ive seen about 1/2-1.0 stop iso improvement. Unless someone else can show any different, thats all im seeing.

Hah! You got me there, Jeffrey. I don't own one. Yet. Still on the fence about it in particular and Canon in general, so I'm taking my time to decide and devouring all the information I can while doing so.

What I have seen from the few controlled tests so far is less than 1 stop difference in amount of noise at higher ISOs compared to 5DII. The lack of high ISO banding might make the practical usable difference a bit higher and maybe there's some better color retention too (?), but I can say with confidence that 3 stops difference it is not. Like you I'll wait for LR4 to support 5DIII RAW files before trying to peg a final number.

there is one thing i wonder about the AF modes on this camera... maybe someone can answer for me since i havent gotten mine yet. i had a 7d and noticed that it wasnt able to do this either (maybe im dumb and couldnt figure it out)

question for me is can the 5d3 have a single point manual selection AF and have it track across all 61 points? i noticed the 7d was only able to do this when it was on automatic selection which i hated. ive used a d700 along side with my 5d2 for some time and the d700 could do it. in fact i left it on that mode most of the time on the d700.

i would pick where i wanted to focus... one single point. and if it moved or i moved it would track across all af points.

I was just nudging you a bit there. There have a been a few prognosticators running around stating all kinds of conjectures as though they were true facts for the past several weeks.

I have the 5D Mark III right now. I love the AF and the controls. I'll have to shoot it for a while to really reach my final/final opinion on the IQ, but for sure it seems quite nice.

After seeing a number of great reviews of the 5D3, it looks like my next purchase will be the 5D3. My 60D will become my 2nd camera. Now all I have to do is figure out where to get the money...

Here is another review of the 5DIII. http://www.digitalrev.​com …k-iii-hands/MTM4NDQ1OTM_A (external link)

Kai is a Nikon fan but he does this review like he does all of them, with a good deal of irreverence and fun.

Yup, that sounds about right. Closer to 1/2 stop actually.
