Why is it a pissing contest. I don't get you guys. Folks are posting photos in a 5D3 photo thread. What a concept.

But if you would have saved the $3500 and bought beer instead, you would be spending most of your time in the john pissing and not out taking photo's with your excellent NEW camera.

Finally a nice day. Took the camera and the 85mm f/1.2 L II to the barn. I wanted to see how sharp it could be at f/1.2 so I took a moment to shoot this extremely interesting photo subject ;) a leadrope :rolleyes:

I wanted to see how sharp ISO 100 was, coupled with the challenge of f/1.2 :) What do you guys think? Crispy crispy? I certainly see no softness now. Here is the image + a 100% crop of it. Don't mind the weird yellow blotchy streak, I think that was a piece of hay.

ISO 100
f/1.2
1/8000th (it was a very bright day at f/1.2 :shock: )
RAW - Processed in PS CS5 to JPEG, minor adjustments to the exposure but didn't touch the sharpness at all.

I am curious. I have not heard many people talk about the difference of the shutter between the 5dii/5diii. The shutter did not stop me, but It was something that seemed to always come up in my mind as I shot, especially when handholding/bracketing​.
The 5diii shutter is distinctly better in my opinion, not just because of the sound/noise, but I believe it creates a little less vibration.

Does anyone else feel the same about it?

I've kept mine in silent mode so far - LOVE it.

Did a quick and dirty video test, aliasing seems to be improved with this camera, unfortunately resolutions has not. Either way video is still very good.

Has anyone moved from a 1D series to a 5D series in the past, or own both? I've decided I need something more compact, to finally move to FF, and the 5D mkIII seems to fit the bill perfectly. Considering making the switch, but looking for anyone who has experience with this.

I have the 1d mkIV and the 5d mkIII. So far I am loving the 5d. But I need the grip. I can't stand not having it. As for everything else, so far so good.

Yes

1DIV to 5DIII. Is impressed, but not a 1D body (hard to change back once you're use to a 1D). Needed smaller because of a hand issue.

I own a 5D. I was really looking for something with better AF when the 5D2 was announced and I was initially diappointed.

I eventually decided to pick up a used 1D3 which I used concurrently with my 5D. I later upgraded the 1D3 to a 1D4.

The biggest problem I have is that the 5D body size and format makes it a natural to me my main go-to camera. But the severely hampered AF system and the limits to the high ISO make it a definite backup. In short - I wind up dragging the 1D4 plus the funky 1.3X sensor matchup lenses along to a lot of things because the 5D is not adequate. It's a struggle because I find a 24-XX zoom the perfect walkabout on FF, but the 16-35 needs another 'something' longer to make it on 1.3X.

And I resisted ever getting a 5D2 because I was not willing to update the 5D for a body that still doesn't fix the AF.

So for me the 5D3 is exactly what I want. IQ of a 1D4 with excellent AF. This will return the 5D to my 'go-to' body and I will probably relegate the 1D4 to field sports and times I'm shooting two bodies. I'm overwhelmingly thrilled with the feature set of the 5D3.

Thanks for posting, but those settings are no longer considered "low light"....12800 iso at f1.2 @ 1/50th sec....that's mk III low light :D

I've just returned from a delightfull wedding (blog up by wednseday) where the day slipped and we ended up shooting their portraits well after the sun had set. I'm astounded by the iso ability of the mkIII, but I'm even more astounded by the way the AF system nailed focus in light levels that I couldn't imaging possible with a mkII.
