[QUOTE=mondayshift;143​86482]not sure if its LR but i dont remember adding any or if the hazy, cloudy sky makes it worse or even uploading it to flickr maybe?

Could be the LR conversion, but I'm not familiar with it. Did you update it? I am using ACR 6.7 and don't see such banding even at much higher ISO in shadow areas.

The images from the Mark 5D III looks very good... I guess all the 5D (s) are awesome. I just visited 500px website and all their 5d, 5d II images are breathtaking!!!!

i've spent hours yesterday with a friend's camera and something struck me that i didn't notice earlier when i first saw in store...

the 4 buttons above the LCD on the top are now micro buttons compared to the big round buttons on the Mark II

the previous buttons seemed to be more qualitative and left no space, therefore gave the impression of better weather sealing
the touch was also more accurate, more comfortable

on the Mark III, these have become "micro buttons"
quality of manufacturing seems lower and they do leave a huge space, enough to get dust or sand inside...
and the touch seems less easy than previously

to actual owners, how do you feel about this ?

thanks

Hi Gareth, wonderful shot! Which lens were you using for this?

I used a Canon 24-70/2.8 L for this particular shot. 38mm f22. Tripodded.
I cropped in camera using the new crop mode / live view options.

Here's another photograph from last week, this time it's a scenic:

Nice composition.

non-issue for me. I prefer the buttons on the mark III.

Would never have even noticed. You may be thinking about it too much. For myself the feel of this camera in hand is much nicer than the mk2.

the mark III's build and layout is better in EVERY way, unless you factor in the magnify layout (which I much prefer now that I'm used to it).

Exactly. Although you are confused about that magnification button :p. Someone at canon should be fired for that idiocy.

Are you guys refering to where the magnify button is? If so, I am having a hard time getting used to it as well.

I read today that Canon is working on a firmware update to light the AF points in low light. Not sure if it is true, but a few have complained a lot about it.
