Got the 5d3 last week so far I like it. One question I have though is if I'm mistaking the focus points for DOF ???? Is going from a spot point to an expanded points or zone give me more in focus or is that a DOF/aperture function. Probley an stupid question but I'm just trying to get a handle on the new system.....

More of the frame in focus is a function of your aperture.

Wow plumtreelad, according to your sig your camera is 108 generations ahead of the current 5D!!! Tell us...does it have a hover function, thus eliminating the cumbersome usage of tripods??

Sorry...had to :D

Great manual. Thanks. I just got my 5DIII last week and haven't quite gotten through the 400+ pages of instructions. This is so radically different than my old 5D this manual is imperative.
