I got the 16-35 for my 5D3 and I really struggle with how to put it to good use

I got the same problem before and end up selling my 16-35 II which I rarely used.

Lenses: Tamron SP 24-70 2.8 Di VC /and some Panny and Oly lenses.

My buddy loves his 5DMarkIII. It's a solid upgrade for him since he was on MarkII for years. It's funny how he mentions things the camera can do that my D7000 is able to do for half the cost. It's about time Canon caught up.

Comparing a D7000 to a 5D Mark II? lol...

Why do you post in Nikon discussion threads? You're trolling.

Yeah. Both brands make good equipment. This is the second time he's trolled these threads.

The grip doesn't use the battery compartment.

You had to use some force to get it off, so how does it fall off accidentally? Is that easily reproducible?

I'm new to Nikon, so I didn't know the battery grip didn't slide up in there. Thanks for pointing that out. Like I said in the video I think it was purposefully designed that way so that it could never be broken off. In other words, if you accidentally snap it off you can just pop it back on, it's kind of like making the battery door childproof. But I'm not at all suggesting that it falls off, or comes off with ease, I was just surprised that they designed it so that you could pull it right off. I'll have to take down the video since the grips don't insert into the battery compartment, haha!

So sorry for spamming, but I need to make a HUGE correction.

I was under the impression that 3D tracking = Face Detection. This is NOT the case. Face detection occurs in AF-C Auto. I just learned this and tried it out on my daughter and it tracked her face all over the viewfinder! Amazing! I'll have to do some tests to determine accuracy. So in AF-C just set it to Auto and watch Face Detection explode with awesomeness, haha!

I think I made an assumption based on other claims. I do like the battery door better on Canon bodies just like I like the flash card door better on Nikon bodies. In the end they both get the job done so neither bother me. If I had problems opening either or they were falling off that would be a different issue.

Oh and you have to go back to the D200 grip to see one that used the battery compartment so they use to be like that.

From the video the battery door looks pretty much the same as the one on my D700 which has never popped off after a fair bit of use. I'm not brave enough to try to make it pop off though since with my luck I'd break one of the plastic hinges. :)
