I'm hearing a few rumbles that the 5D Mark III is not impressing too many people.

I've actually heard the opposite - haven't seen many negative comments other than from those who don't have the MKIII :)

This was my first run with it - I need to play some more but the image quality is great. The menus are going to take some getting used to over the 5d2 but I learned the NEX-5 and 7 so this shouldn't be an issue. I love the AF and the fact that FPS is raised... I will continue to post more as I get time.

OP: like the images, a lovely feeling of peace in these. Nice colors too.

Well, it certainly does it for me. Out of interest, where are these "rumbles"? Personally I've not seen anything that substanciates that "the 5D Mark III is not impressing too many people" but perhaps I'm looking in all the wrong places and talking to the wrong set of 5DIII owners.

In truth, at the end of the day, if I'm happy that's what matters (and I am) but I'd still like to get a handle on why you have the impression you clearly do.

Andrew & nickspictures, you have a 5Dii and a 5Diii - what are the noticeable differences? I have a 5D and a 5Dii. There are substantial improvements comparing the 5dii to the 5d, including more pixels, less noise, live view, 1080p video. Is the 5diii that much better than the 5dii? I have heard that the autofocus and burst mode is improved on the 5Diii. What else that would substantiate buying a brand spanking new 5diii over a new (or even used) 5dii?

I think many folks thought that the 5diii would offer the same leap in performance and features over the 5dii as the 5dii offered over the 5d, given the price. That, and the natural bugs in a new product, might be part of the overall rumblings. The fact that Canon did not take the opportunity to introduce AEB to something greater than +- 3EV when they also built in "HDR" imaging is cause enough to shake one's head.

I can pick up a 5dii with a 24-105L lens on bhphoto for $2800 - or I could get a 5diii body for $3500. Which would you suggest for someone who owns neither and is looking for a full-frame dSLR, given that you own both?

Both of you have a bunch of cameras, besides your 5dIII - Would either of you sell your used 5dii for $1000, now that you have a 5diii? If so, I'll take it.

OP, lovely photo's, I've been wondering how the in camera HDR worked. I'm assuming you were using a tripod? Does the camera correct when taking them handheld? When you take more post them up, I'm sure everyone would love to see more samples.
